Hiring supply teachers and agency workers - the deal for schools

The purpose of this VSB circular is to draw to the attention of schools the DfE list of preferred supply agencies  and the further development of "the deal" by the addtion of the on line tool.

The DFE provides 'the deal', a list of preferred supply agencies schools can use when hiring  supply teachers and agency workers. The deal helps schools to get value for money, and to set standard practice for safeguarding checks and agency fees.

 The deal has recently been updated to include an online tool which schools can use to find local agencies, as well as to check rates and charges.
