Frequently asked questions

You’re in good company

Supply Plus is a positive network that benefits both schools and teachers. Here is some of the feedback we’ve received from the people who work as supply teachers and the school leaders who call on their service.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working with Supply Plus. The sign-up process and online booking system are well organised, and I have found it fantastic for helping to organise my days with ease. Supply Plus staff have always answered the phone and replied to emails almost instantly and have aided with any issues I may have. I have had the most amazing experiences in multiple schools around Plymouth and thank the Supply Plus team for giving me these opportunities. I really hope to work with Supply Plus again in the future.

I have really enjoyed my time doing supply teaching with Supply Plus. I chose supply teaching after a long contract at a Plymouth School. My decision to leave came at a point in my life where I was keen to explore a different career path. Supply through Supply Plus gave me a breather and chance to think how I could use my skills in another way. It was totally flexible so I could map out my availability every week. It was so helpful to get an insight into how different schools operate and I learnt a lot from the experience.

Supply+ has been a great organisation to work with! The team are always friendly and helpful, and communication is good. The calendar system on the database works really well and there has always been work when I wanted it with age groups and in areas that suit me. I have enjoyed going into a range of different schools in Plymouth and have found it a supportive way of getting back into the classroom after a break.

Thank you for making my time with Supply+ so enjoyable. From the beginning the Supply+ team have been incredibly helpful alongside their excellent and frequent communication. Supply+ are often sending out emails with further CPD which I think is a great to have those continuous opportunities. I will happily recommend Supply+ to anyone I know going into supply work and am very proud to have represented them during my time doing supply work.
