Communication between supply teachers and schools is key and we encourage feedback at the end of each placement (feedback form here).

A higher rate of pay and fair treatment

Agency Worker  Regulations Compliant

At VES we endeavour to provide a high rate of pay to our candidates and fully comply with the Agency Worker Regulations (2010) to guarantee you are being treated fairly.

What are the AWR?

The Agency Workers Regulations give agency workers the entitlement to the same or no less favourable treatment as comparable employees with respect to basic employment and working conditions, if and when they complete a qualifying period of 12 weeks in a particular job.

Your CPD is important to us

Upskilling candidates for the future

We understand that you do not always have the same training opportunities when you are working on a supply basis, and how important CPD is for your career.  Therefore we regularly provide training courses for our candidates so you can make sure your skills are relevant and up to date for the classroom.

Safeguarding Training

All VES’s supply staff are required to complete our accredited Safeguarding training prior to being placed in schools (this is done as part of the registration process and is fully funded).

Newly Qualified Teachers

We are in regular contact with NQT’s during the course final year of studying and support them in their transition from student life to their first teaching placement.

Your induction year can now be completed using your supply sessions, click on the links below for further guidance on how to do this.

We offer a validated service
