As many of our consultants will have stood in front of a class and covered lessons on a variety of assignments, they really understand what supply teaching is all about. Above all, education is about children and young people learning and developing. The best way to help them learn and develop is through quality, reliable teaching staff – that’s why we are here.

Our partnership with Tes

As part of Tes, we can offer advertising for long term supply roles on their website and Tes supply teaching jobs page at no cost to the school. This gives you access to the world’s largest network of teachers and teaching professionals – almost 8 million people – so you get to choose from the very best candidates.

Round-the-clock support

Our day to day service is second to none. Our offices are open from 07:00 until 17:30 and we also run a manned out-of-hours service. We understand that an emergency booking means an emergency.

To contact us out of office hours, including weekends, please call 07599 329215

All of our teachers are prepared to be up and ready in the mornings so that we can call on them at any time. This enables them to get to your school as quickly as possible to ensure the least disruption for your classes.

Competitive charge rates

We know that cost is an important factor and that most schools have limited budgets. Therefore, we have developed our charge rates to give schools excellent value, providing quality teachers and an unrivalled service at a price your school can afford.

In our recent customer satisfaction survey to schools, 100% of our user schools said that our charge rates were excellent, very good, good or average.

Regulations and compliance

October 2011 saw the implementation of the Agency Workers Regulations (AWR) 2010. ABC Teachers have worked alongside the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) to ensure that our systems fully encompass the legislation. ABC Teachers are fully compliant and we will effectively manage AWR for your school.

For further information regarding AWR and to request a brochure, please email:

We also fully comply with the IR35 regulations.

As an REC member all of our policies and procedures are in accordance with current legislation and ethical expectations. We adhere to their Code of Practice and Complaints Procedure. Both of these documents are available to view on request.

We have been awarded the DfE Gold Standard since it replaced the Quality Mark, and have achieved 100% compliance in all audits conducted by them.

Work collaboratively with us

We offer an additional package to our schools called the Collaborative Agreement. This package can vary depending on the school’s needs and includes financial discounts, community benefits such as award sponsorships, sports kits and career days and much more. Please contact your consultant for more information.

We will ask for regular feedback on the teachers and staff who work at your school through us. This helps us build up a picture of the candidates who have worked well at your school so that we can tailor future placements for you.

Permanent recruitment

ABC Teachers also offer a bespoke service to cater for all of your school’s permanent recruitment needs. Whether you want us to look after the whole process, or just certain aspects, we are confident of finding the right teacher, every time. Please contact your consultant for more information on our permanent recruitment.

Vetting procedures

All teachers, teaching assistants and cover supervisors who we provide to schools must undergo our thorough vetting procedure. The vetting procedure consists of:

  • Face to face interview
  • Enhanced DBS check
  • Barred List check
  • Identification check
  • Qualification check
  • Reference checks

This procedure ensures that all of our candidates are of the highest quality and as our consultants have taken the time to get to know each member of staff, you can be sure we will put forward the most suitable candidates we have to meet your requirements.
