We specialise in helping qualified teachers and support staff like you, find the perfect role by matching your skillset to the needs of the school or job role.  We will be with you every step of the way and will support you by finding either day to day, long term or permanent jobs in mainstream and SEN schools in the region.

Familiarise yourself with the different types of supply and permanent work available through First Call Teachers.

Short Term Supply

This cover is the most flexible option as it allows you to commit on a day by day or week by week basis.  The majority of the time, this type of work will be to cover sickness, PPA or training courses.  Short term cover will allow you greater exposure to a wide variety of schools, enhancing your chances of securing longer term and permanent employment. Popular with NQTs due to the broad range of experience gained over a short period of time!

Long Term Supply

You will have similar responsibilities and expectations to a permanent member of staff and you will be in a specific role for a set period of time, usually up to half a term.  This sort of cover can be very rewarding as you will make a greater contribution to curriculum planning and can see your pupils make progress of the period of time you are in school.

Permanent Jobs

For the majority, long term placements often result in permanent positions for the teachers we place in our schools, especially as First Call Teachers don’t charge clients a fee for temporary positions going permanent.  This means that you can rest assured that schools won’t have the negative connotations that are sometimes associated with supply agencies and the costs. Most permanent jobs start in September or January so you will need to keep a close eye on our job vacancies page in the months leading up to these start dates.

Classroom Support & Intervention

Year on year the demand for additional support and intervention in our schools is increasing. This requirement is for both teachers and teaching assistants who can help raise attainment and academic standards as well as supporting children with learning difficulties and other additional needs, overcome barriers to learning.
