Guaranteed Supply Teaching Work

Job description

Interested in guaranteed supply teaching work this academic year?

Interested in joining the close-knit team of the forward-thinking Astrea MAT?


Teaching Personnel is working in a partnership agreement with The Astrea Academy Trust (AAT), which will be going from strength to strength this academic year as we continue to work together.

The AAT is a unique multi-academy trust (MAT), encompassing Cottenham Village College (Cambridge), Ernulf Academy (Saint Neots), Longsands Academy (Saint Neots), St Ivo Academy (Saint Ives) & The Centre School Cottenham (Cambridge), with a forward-thinking leadership team who are looking to provide unique and collaborative solutions towards supply cover in their schools. From meeting with them it is clear that they are passionate about education, their staff, their pupils, and their communities.

We are looking for qualified secondary teachers who are looking for regular supply work this academic year, to build up a cohort of teachers to regularly provide cover at the schools (both emergency sickness and planned absence). The vision is to have a core group of committed teachers every term who can learn the Astrea values, become an integral part of the schools, and help them achieve their educational goals. You will not be considered as just ‘a supply teacher’, you will be a valuable member of the Astrea staffing team and will be fully supported into Astrea life with access to a range of benefits through the trust. You will be registered and employed via Teaching Personnel and will receive access to the following benefits:


Guaranteed Work Schemes (GWS) via Teaching Personnel, to work across Astrea Schools (if you commit your availability to work with Astrea, you can still be paid on days where the schools do not have a requirement! Invitation to a GWS scheme is on a case-by-case basis)

Astrea Induction Events – Upon joining Astrea and Teaching Personnel’s collaborative supply partnership, you will be invited to an induction event, which will involve time with the Senior Leaders of the schools and an introduction to the Astrea Values from Benedick Ashmore-Short (Director of Education).

FREE Access to Astrea’s CPD – free access to Astrea’s professional development resources. These are available to all permanent staff and Astrea will make available to the supply cohort

Fair Pay Rates – competitive daily rates of pay for ad hoc supply, paid via PAYE with no additional payroll or employers NI charges, and paid to scale for long term assignments post 12 weeks

Flexibility - full or part time work to fit around your existing commitments and the opportunity to work across different schools within the trust

Continuity – as an Astrea Teacher you will work within the same schools, allowing you to return to a familiar environment and get to know the staff and pupils

Referral Bonus - GBP50 reward every time you recommend a colleague to work with us

Opportunity – for long-term roles or permanent positions at the school further down the line if your circumstances change


Because the majority of these schools are Secondary, the school requires qualified and experienced secondary teachers to provide subject specialist cover, although if there is cover required outside of your subject specialism you will be required to cover other subjects with passion, flexibility and dedication to the best of your ability. Astrea’s detailed induction and support programs will help ensure that you are comfortable in the school and provided with all the tools you need to enjoy regular, supportive supply cover!


We welcome applications from experienced Secondary School Teachers with any subject specialism who are available anywhere from 2-5 days per week for regular cover, and are happy to travel to the named schools above.

To apply for a position to join Teaching Personnel’s Astrea Supply cohort for AY 2019/2020 please get in touch ASAP!

All applicants will require the appropriate qualifications and training for this role. Please see for details.

All pay rates quoted will be inclusive of 12.07% statutory holiday pay. This advert is for a temporary position. In some cases, the option to make this role permanent may become available at a later date.
