16 Jun Why supply agencies are vital…
Education Recruitment is a sector long plighted by budget cuts. As schools and academies face government funding cuts to their budgets and calls to reorganise the way they run their institutions, so too do supply agencies feel the pinch. In fact, one of the first things to go in schools when cuts squeeze the bottom line is recruitment. Schools restructure the business in order to allow existing staff to share the responsibility of extra work under staff absence. Although this goes a short way to solving financial difficulties it can often lead to low morale and burnout among current members of staff as they are overworked and underpaid. This, in turn, has a negative effect on students and their education as course delivery is strained.
This is why supply teachers and other support staff play a critical role in our schools on a day to day basis; they endeavour to deliver our children’s education smoothly when things don’t quite go to plan, relieving pressure before it builds up.
Many schools can’t afford to run their own supply department with teachers on retainer, ready to go at a moment’s notice. Nor can they afford to pay extortionate prices for supply staff to large companies with a monopoly on the industry. But this doesn’t mean that supply cover should be a luxury, or an unavailable option. This is where smaller independent supply agencies like The Education Specialists come in.
