How short-term and emergency supply staffing works 

  1. The school contacts their local Teaching Personnel branch with short-term or emergency staffing requirements.
  2. Your consultant takes down all the details of your requirements including date and duration of booking, educator type and specialism along with any special instructions or requirements you have.
  3. Once we have the details, we search for the best match available among local educators. We contact them and book in the best match available.
  4. Your consultant telephones you with confirmation and details of the booked educator.
  5. Once you confirm, our system will send an email booking providing details of your educator and details of their vetting checks.
  6. Your educator arrives at school on time, ready and eager to support the school in delivering a quality education for its pupils.

A reliable partner for short-term staffing 

Our service is grounded in the close relationships our sector specialist consultants build with nearby schools. We do this in tandem with growing and maintaining locally-based teacher and teaching assistant 'pools' that fully reflect the demand for supply cover in each area.
