In this section:

Introduction to Supply Teaching Recruitment Agencies – We look at what their role is, a few of the positives, and the negatives.

Working with Agencies – Choosing a supply teaching agency and building a good quality working relationship with them. Remember: they work for you as much as you work for them!

Call back times – Do they really call you the night before? Half an hour before? Should I call my agency? How often should you call your agency? 

Feedback – Schools are in continual discussion with some agencies about their supply teachers, make sure you know how you're doing and ask for feedback.

Support – What can and should your agency offer supply teachers in terms of professional support? Who else offers support to supply teachers?

Supply Teacher Agency Database – A growing list of supply teaching agencies and apps (online booking platforms) operating in your area.
