Choose what temporary work suits you best with either daily, short or long-term supply work

Whatever supply work you choose, we will always…

Find the role that is best for you - by taking into consideration your specific needs, skills, experience, location, availability, type of school you want to work in and anything else you may be looking for.

Daily supply

As the most flexible supply option, you tell us what days you want to work each week and we’ll find the work for you. Daily supply is mostly planned in advance, and you will work one or two days in a school, but there can be emergencies when we may ask you to work on the same day. You’ll often work in different schools each day and that’s what makes it exciting, as each day brings a fresh challenge.

Short-term contracts

With any short-term absences, a supply worker may be needed for more than one day - perhaps a week, 10 days or two weeks. This type of supply is great for anyone who wants to spend a bit more time in a school, wants to avoid much of the after-school planning, but still wants flexibility & variety. In particular, early careers teachers can enjoy short-term supply to get a good grasp of a range of different schools.

Long-term contracts

Usually booked in advance, long-term supply can be anything from six weeks or more. This is a brilliant option for those who want to get more in-depth experience or already know they like working with particular schools. With a long-term placement you’ll be able to see the progress you make with your students and take on more of the responsbilities that a permanent member of staff has.

Why choose working on supply?

There are so many reasons why working on supply is a great option – you can decide how much or how little you want to work, there is a lot less paperwork for you to manage and you can enjoy the variety that working at as many different schools as you wish brings.

The list goes on…work flexibly around family life, gain work experience to get into teaching or as an early careers teacher before deciding where you want to work permanently, or keep doing the work you enjoy during semi-retirement without the stress or hassle that comes with a permanent role.

Wherever you are in your career, whatever you need, you can decide how you want to work.

I would strongly recommend Vision for Education to anyone who is looking for a supportive hand getting into the education sector. They have supported my preferred work patterns, have offered me career advice and have provided educational field training. They have raised my confidence and provided me with the skills to become the teacher I have been working towards.

Shaun Burton,
