Supplying the temporary staff you need

Smart Teachers can provide primary, secondary and SEND schools, academies, MATs and other alternative provision with temporary teaching and support staff when you need them.

Daily supply

If you need emergency same-day supply cover, we aim to identify suitable supply staff for 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.

Short-term

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.

Long-term

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.

Testimonials

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 3 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 candidates sent to us have been excellent teachers. Our consultant has been a great support during the year. He has been in constant contact to help and provide us with cover teachers whenever we were in need of them.

Robin Archibald,
Headteacher, Broadfields Primary 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
