83% of supply teachers mainly work through supply agencies

Recent statistics from the Teacher Supply Survey show 83% of supply teachers mainly work through supply agencies and 65% are actively seeking work.*

As the data suggests, existing supply teachers may feel supply work is a better fit with their family or home life circumstances. As a result, we are seeing more people register with us looking for supply work. Therefore, we want to remind teachers and teaching assistants that getting cleared to accept work is not the only part of the process.

It is important to work with Yorkshire Education so that you can make the most of your recruitment consultant in the following ways.

First contact From the first time you communicate, consultants will form an opinion. Yorkshire Education gets to know its candidates professionally so they can match you to the right school and nurseries. Be polite, professional, and flexible. Occasionally, consultants might ask you to go somewhere you may prefer not to. Helping the consultants with difficult bookings speaks volumes about your character and puts you in the forefront of their thoughts. When more desirable bookings come in, you are more likely to get offered them.

Be respectful Try and find the best time to contact the office. Consultants tend to have certain points in the day which are busier than others and will be more able to talk at those times.

Don’t slip under the radar As there are hundreds of staff registered, it is important to reply to the communications asking for your availability so it’s clear what days you can accept work. If it changes, let your consultant know.

Help the consultants by sending them a reminder email that you are available for work in the morning. Make sure your phone is on so you can accept the work and leave promptly following the call. A good way to stand out is to interact online with the information they send out.

Yorkshire Education is on various social media channels, and you will find it beneficial to like, share and comment on the information which is produced. By actively engaging with the content, it provides a useful insight for others about the positive experiences you have enjoyed.

As we are seeing more schools around York, North Yorkshire and East Yorkshire contact us for supply staff, now is a great time to book a registration with us.
