Whilst working for VES you will have a dedicated Account Manager who will establish an understanding of your career goals. We pride ourselves on adding the ‘personal touch’ and will take the time to get to know your individual circumstances and these fit with your working life.
We have a range of short and long term vacancies available and can also offer GPS (Guaranteed Pay Scheme) for those who want the security of knowing they have guaranteed work. (subject to terms)
Communication between supply teachers and schools is key and we encourage feedback at the end of each placement (feedback form here).
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.

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.
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).
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.
VES are a friendly and professional team who ensure you with regular supply work to meet your needs. My experience with Valley Education has only ever been positive throughout my teaching career and I would strongly encourage any newly qualified teacher to register for the best experience/start with supply work
Valley Education provides an excellent, efficient and friendly service. They have been able to provide supply work to suit my teaching criteria and needs. I definitely recommend them.
I'd recommend working for Valley Education as they provide plenty of local work, they offer competitive rates of pay and they want you to be happy on your placement
Having worked with VES for almost a year I am very pleased with staff, the amount and the type of work I have received.
I have had a lot of teaching work (almost every day I have requested it) and the pay is competitive, higher than many of the other agencies in South Wales.
HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER
I have worked successfully as a supply teacher for Valleys now for a number of years. We have developed an excellent working relationship which is due in no small part to the staff members.
