Supply Teacher

Are you considering working on a supply basis from next term?
Would you like to get a full overview of the school prior to committing to a permanent contract?
Would you also like to be part of our platform promoting and organising online tuition?

Tradewind Recruitment proudly works with multiple Primary schools and academies throughout Essex who will have a regular need for diligent, punctual, and reliable teachers to cover the day-to-day and ongoing absence of their teaching staff. Depending on your location, flexibility and transport, you may also be able to work with client schools in the neighbouring areas of Essex and Thurrock.

On top of regular, local supply Teaching we have also launched a platform for online tuition. This connects top teacher talent and parents across the UK and provides an additional source of income. All qualified teachers registered with Tradewind will be able to join this platform and will be fully supported throughout the process.

Supply teaching is the perfect solution for teachers who are keen to maintain their income or are simply not looking for the commitment of a full-time teaching post. It provides a great source of income, gives you flexibility in your work life and allows you to gain experience from various school environments. This would also be an ideal time for student teachers to continue their progression and help build your confidence prior to starting your Early Career Framework. If you are ideally seeking an ongoing role, many short-term supply bookings can lead into long term and permanent positions which are likely to pay you to scale.

There is a high demand for Supply Teachers and cover staff as school life continues to return to normal, therefore, we are always recruiting for enthusiastic and hard-working teachers to work on a daily basis. We will try to work to your specialisms and preferences, however, you may be expected to cover a variety of supply needs across all year groups.

As a Supply Teacher or Cover Supervisor you will be delivering and distributing work for the students (either to the whole class or smaller groups) which has been prepared by their class teacher. You will ensure high standards of learning and behaviour are maintained in the teacher's absence.

To join us and be successful in your application you must:
Hold QTS or an equivalent teaching qualification (Cover Supervisors would ideally have degree or suitable experience working with young people)
Hold an Enhanced DBS Disclosure, or be prepared to put one in process.
Hold an Overseas Police Clearance (if applicable).
Have a CV that covers the last 10 years of employment history where possible and any employment breaks must be explained
Have the legal right to work in the UK.
