teachers-direct - For Supply Teaching Jobs in London and the UK

At teachers-direct, we provide both daily and long term supply teachers to fill teaching jobs in primary and secondary schools around the UK at the best possible daily rates. This is achieved by using the latest developments in information technology to match job seekers to teaching jobs offered by schools. This increases the efficiency of service and reduces overheads and hence improves the costs to schools whilst maximizing the payment received by our supply teachers. Unlike some agencies, our company is run by teachers for teachers and its primary aim is providing quality candidates to fill jobs at the best possible rates. We currently offer our supply teachers 145 per day while our charge to schools is 170 per day.

Services to Teachers

Signing up with teachers-direct makes finding the right teaching job simple. Once you have submitted your CV and told us what sort of jobs you're looking for we will do all the hard work for you.

Our jobs search system is UK postcode based, you simply tell us where you are and what teaching jobs you're looking for and we will match you directly with jobs offered by schools. Your CV will be available for searches by schools within your target area that are looking to fill supply vacancies or permanent jobs suitable for you. We will continually monitor the schools in your area and send your details to schools with jobs that match your desired job criteria.

You can include individual schools that are outside your target area by simply adding them to your favourites list so you can be alerted should a job be advertised. Similarly you can make yourself invisible to schools that you have decided you don't want to work at.

We will, with your permission, send your CV speculatively to selected schools that match your search criteria and will inform you each time your CV is requested or sent out.

If you feel you would like to be more involved in finding your perfect teaching job then you can also browse for teaching jobs throughout the UK by specifying your search criteria and apply for the job at the click of a button.
