Schools and Academies Support

How can we help?

We understand how challenging is it for schools, academies, Pupil Referral Units (PRU's), Special Educational Needs Schools (SEN), Alternative Provision Schools (AP) and Multi Academy Trusts to recruit alongside of everything else there is to do on a daily basis.

At SAAF Supply we specialise in selecting high quality teaching and support professionals to suit your recruitment needs. We recruit from day to day cover, both short and long term supply as well as permanent positions, whether you need a teacher, school support staff, Medium Level Leadership Team (MLT) or senior leadership team (SLT) member of staff.

We ensure to find our about your needs and school style in order to make sure that we fill the right person for the role, rather than just any person. We'll visit, if you would like, so we can understand your school/academy's expectations first hand!

What we look for

When a candidate joins us, they go through a comprehensive selection and vetting process.

Members of our supply team are:

  • Proud to be an education professional
  • Reliable and flexible
  • Keen to feel part of your school team, even on short term contracts
  • Enthusiastic about children and their progression
  • Dedicated to providing high standards of teaching

We encourage all members of the SAAF Supply network to participate in continuous professional development and become part of your school team.

In addition, we work with schools to develop bespoke cover resources which can be called on in times of urgent need.

As teachers are at the heart of our education service we know that the more prepared a teacher is to deliver a class, the better the experience will be for you and your students. To do this we provide cover supervisors, teachers, teaching assistants and specialist intervention staff.

The Recruitment Process

SAAF Supply is dedicated to hiring high quality educators. To do this we have a thorough interview process to ensure candidates are passionate about teaching and have relevant qualifications. And, we ensure our processes go beyond the safer recruitment requirements of the DfE’s statutory guidance “Keeping Children Safe in Education”.

  1. Face to face interviews with one of our senior education recruitment specialists to ensure candidates have the right qualifications and experience for your school
  2. Extensive background and identity checks
  3. Collating a minimum of two business references
  4. Conducting DBS and barred list check
