Refer a school scheme terms and conditions

Vision for Education's refer a school scheme gives schools, academies, colleges, multi-academy trusts, other learning providers and Vision for Education's supply workers the opportunity to receive one free supply day or a £250 Amazon gift voucher for every education provider they refer once the referred provider has booked and paid for 10 full supply days with Vision for Education. There are no restrictions on the number of referrals a school, academy, college, multi-academy trust, learning provider or supply worker can make.

Qualifying for a referral bonus 

The referred school, academy, college, multi-academy trust or other learning provider must:

  • be located within England
  • have not used the services of Vision for Education within the last 12 months (excluding trial days)
  • not have been referred by another education provider. Only one referral can be made per school, academy, college, multi-academy trust or other learning provider and a reward may only be given once for this provider. If two education providers/Vision for Education's supply workers refer the same school, academy, college, multi-academy trust or other learning provider, Vision for Education will identify who referred the education provider first, and
  • book and pay for a minimum of ten full days’ supply through Vision for Education. If the education provider referred is a multi-academy trust, the bonus will be paid for each individual academy within the trust that books and pays for 10 full supply days – not 10 full days’ supply across the whole of the trust.

The referring school, academy, college, multi-academy trust or other learning provider must:

  • have used the services of Vision for Education within the last 12 months, and
  • obtain the permission of the school, academy, college, multi-academy trust or other learning provider they are referring to Vision for Education before submitting their details.

OR

The referring Vision for Education's supply worker must:

  • be registered and cleared to work with Vision for Education, and
  • obtain the permission of the school, academy, college, multi-academy trust or other learning provider they are referring to Vision for Education before submitting their details.

Claiming and paying a referral bonus

  • The referring school, academy, college, multi-academy trust, other learning provider or Vision for Education's supply worker must contact Vision for Education to claim their bonus once the referred education provider has booked and paid for the required 10 full days’ supply.
  • The referral bonus must be claimed within six months of the qualifying period.
  • Any referring education providers who are eligible for a refer a school bonus must confirm if they want to receive one day’s free supply or a £250 Amazon gift voucher. If the £250 Amazon gift voucher is selected, this will be awarded to the education provider – not the individual working within the organisation. We will require a signed letter from the Head Teacher on headed paper to confirm receipt of the gift voucher. No cash or alternative vouchers are available.
  • Any referring Vision for Education's supply workers who are eligible for a refer a school bonus will have the bonus paid through their Vision for Education salary, which will be subject to PAYE deductions. No cash or voucher alternatives are available to candidates registered with Vision for Education. 
  • The Amazon gift voucher/card will be sent out recorded delivery. If the Amazon gift voucher/card is stolen, lost, lost in transit or destroyed, this is not the responsibility of Vision for Education.

Additional terms and conditions

  • This scheme applies to referrals made on and after 24 February 2020. Any referrals made before this date will be eligible for the scheme that was running at the time the referral was made. 
  • Vision for Education reserves the right to terminate or amend this scheme at any time. 
  • Vision for Education will determine the eligibility for this bonus in each case and our decision is final.
