Why use Supply+?

Supply+ is a unique Teacher Supply & Recruitment Service. We offer regular supply work with fair rates of pay for teachers and reasonable costs for schools.

A collaboration between the Cornwall & Plymouth Primary Heads Associations, our prime motivation is to improve the life chances for all our children. Both are Community Interest Companies serving our member schools.

Supply+ stands apart from other supply agencies and aims to deliver the highest standard of supply teachers with teaching quality as the key focus. We are continually striving to improve the quality of the staff we place and welcome direct feedback and advice from our local Headteachers.

Supply+ is able to reduce daily costs of supply for schools whilst simultaneously paying its teaching staff equitably. Profit is not the primary motive.

Supply+ helps our schools recruit the right staff and our supply teachers find permanent employment with no transfer fees for schools.

At Supply+ we recruit, motivate and nurture teachers, and help NQTs gain the valuable school experience they need on their teaching journey.

All our supply staff have had the enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) with Barred List checks and the following checks completed – home address; qualifications; relevant barring list(s); right to work in the UK and overseas checks, where necessary, obtained through GBG Online Disclosures. A single central record is held in the Plymouth office.

Staff involved in recruitment have completed Safer Recruitment training.

Agency Supply Teacher Commercial Framework - Careful consideration was given to whether it was in the best interest of Supply + and our schools to register for this scheme, which is voluntary. We considered the advantages of registering, which for Supply + appeared to be limited with possible cost implications, therefore we decided for the time being it is not in the best interests of our service or schools to join the scheme.

In arriving at this decision, it is clear Supply+ not only meet the agency’s criteria but in a number of areas exceed them. Further details are available in the letter below.

"We had a supply teacher in - from Supply + recommended by CAPH and although we don't normally need supplies, just lately we have been using them a lot. They are brilliant - from the office staff through to the teachers they send, they are our 'go to' agency for sure."
