About us:

Supply&Teach is a teacher-run recruitment agency which is committed to recruiting and supporting the best supply teachers and teaching assistants so the children in the schools we serve continue to receive the best quality teaching even when their own class teacher or TA is not there.​

We’re not like other agencies that promise the earth but fall somewhat short. We want to be honest and upfront because we are former teachers ourselves and feel educators deserve respect; we genuinely care about the people we employ and the schools we work with. Check out the testimonials page to see how these aims translate into how we treat our staff.
