Working exclusively with us

Smart Teachers is proud to have preferred supplier contracts with primary, secondary and SEND schools, colleges and multi-academy trusts across the country.

With over 163 contracts in place and 473 across the Group, we're experienced at managing exclusive supply contracts and can tailor our services to help meet your school and pupils' needs.

Daily supply

If you need emergency same-day supply cover, we aim to respond and supply staff to schools within 15 minutes. It’s that quick! You can also book daily supply in advance for inset days or other planned absences, so with our range of teachers, TAs, HLTAs, cover supervisors and other support staff available, your supply problems are solved.


For any slightly longer absences - perhaps a week, 10 days or two weeks, we can provide short-term cover. Our knowledgeable recruitment specialists will work with you to understand your exact requirements and expertly match you with the right candidate who will be reliable and ready to go.


We have plenty of qualified and experienced teachers and support staff ready to work in long-term positions - anything from six weeks or more. All our staff are fully vetted to the highest standards through our robust safeguarding and interview processes, so you can be more than confident they are best-suited to your school and pupils’ needs.

We’re proud of what our
schools say about us

Our consultant brings a real personal touch and because she takes the time to get to know us, it means we get really good candidates all the time. I’ve used her in my last three schools and her proactive, no-nonsense approach helps massively. I barely use anyone else because she nails the candidates and service.

Richard McCabe,
Headteacher, White Trees School

All agency staff have been great and we have kept many of them on as long term staff. Our consultant is always great, he knows our school setting really well and sends us appropriate candidates.

Kate Miller,
Head of School, SMBS

Smart Teachers work to build a true understanding of the culture of the school, as well as the business needs. This means that we are provided with high calibre applicants and supply staff that closely suit our requirements. Smart Teachers have always been professional, honest and reliable and I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone.

HR Manager, Devonshire House School
