Why Supply Pools work

Staff absence is a fact of life in schools. Building a group of supply teachers, tutors and teaching assistants who understand your school, its culture, procedures, methodologies and technology to cover planned and unplanned absence helps produce better classroom outcomes.

Benefits of building a Supply Pool

  • Always covered - Each supply pool is as individual as your school. Teaching Personnel can create pools ranging from a group of identified preferred educators to guaranteeing your school's supply requirements for the whole term. 
  • Supply staff that fit in with your way of working - Building a supply pool means creating a group of supply educators to provide seamless cover whenever they are called to maintain learning outcomes.
  • Control your costs - Work in partnership with Teaching Personnel to build your supply pool, and we can help you manage your costs via our First Call Agreements or a more bespoke partnership agreement.
  • Get the most from your flexible workforce - As your supply pool understands the needs of your pupils so well, they can fulfil a range of roles from tuition to mentoring to deliver the support your learners need.
  • Build a talent pipeline - Today's supply educator could be tomorrow's full-time employee. A supply pool is a great way to build resilience into your school's recruitment and retention work.
  • Reduce time spent on managing supply - Teaching Personnel's supply pool works in tandem with our online portal and our Supply Cover Diary, all of your supply needs in one place.
