Supply Teachers

Looking for permanent teaching jobs or daily supply teaching work then look no further..

Daily Supply Rates of 145 per day

Unlike some agencies we are more than happy for both teachers and schools to know about our charging policies. Our current charge to schools is 170 per day of which 145 per day is paid direct to the teacher.

The teachers-direct System

The teachers-direct system uses cutting edge technology to match the information you supply with the staffing requirements of our client schools. Our advanced geocoding system and online booking facility allow schools to perform day-to-day tasks, such as shortlisting candidates and booking supply teachers, without the need to speak to consultants which drastically reduces our staffing costs and means more of your hard earned money ends up in your pocket! This also means that should you need to talk ot us then we are able to give you the help you need more quickly and with less fuss.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Many supply teachers often complain of becoming de-skilled after they have been supply teaching for a while. This is because schools are under no obligation to provide in-service training to teachers who do not have a permanent contract. At teachers-direct we believe it is in everyone's interest to make sure our teachers' are kept up to date with the latest developments in educational theory and practice. We ensure this by providing each teacher with:
  • 1 day of paid inset on approved courses per term.
  • Regular in-class observation by a trained consultant.
  • Professional careers guidance.

Free Resources

As well as recruitment, teachers-direct is continually developing high quality free resources to help ALL teachers get the most from their lessons. Although our resources are particularly suited to supply teachers we hope that all teachers can make use of some of the activities, worksheets and lesson plans in the Free Resources section of our website. If you have a resource or web link that you'd like to share then please visit the Free Web Resources section of our website.

CRB and List 99 Checks

In line with DfES requirements teachers-direct is required to perform full backgroud and criminal record checks before employing any teacher. For more information on the checks we carry out please see the CRB Information section of wour website.
