The advantages of using Supply Plus

Our school-centred ethos and friendly, flexible approach have enabled us to become proficient at matching school classroom vacancies with capable, reliable supply teaching staff. Here’s what makes our service work:


We ensure that you get highly able and professional supply teachers for your role – thanks to our rigorous recruitment process, fair pay, and excellent mentoring, coaching and support for our teachers.


Our CIC model means we’re focused more on service standards than commercial gains – and we don’t charge commissions or transfer/finders’ fees. So, at a time when school budgets are tight, we’re committed to delivering great value for money.


We offer a high level of flexibility in how you can access supply teaching staff, from on-the-day jobs to longer-term cover. Plus, we have a mix of ECTs starting on their teaching journey and highly experienced teachers.


Hiring supply teachers can be a good way to ‘try before you buy’ – some relationships between our schools and teachers are so successful that they lead to permanent career positions.


We are always mindful of headteachers’ feedback and we do all we can to facilitate a positive working relationship. We want supply teacher provision to be a win-win for both the school and teacher, and good communication and responsive are central to this.
