But then, It's down to the deal between you and who you work for!!
That was the problem . I used to work as a freelance Kayak instructor . I had worked hard at much expense to gain my qualifications , which to work on the sea take some getting .
You end up as bus driver first aider Tug and general dogs body.
Often i would have school teachers with me as part of school groups and they needed as much care and help as the Kids .
No disrespect to any teacher , but the resposibility was far higher than was expected of them and it was your ass on the line should anything go wrong.
The pay should reflect that but it doesn't because there are no end of people out there who consider the work cool or fun and will work sometimes for nothing to gain experience . The outdoor and training centres use these free workers a lot
When something like the Lyme Bay tragedy occurrs there is a big inquest and it is then the problem becomes apparent .
The only work I ever did where I was fully apreciated and paid properly was for the Armed forces and direct contracts to schools who paid teacher supply rates .
