Learn about the supply teachers deal at your local SBP network

It’s 9 months since the supply teachers deal went live and we have been busy attending events across the country to talk to schools and academies about the deal and how to access it.

From exhibiting at large events such as the Schools & Academies Show and EdExec to presenting at local school business professional (SBP) networks, we have been keen to meet as many of you as possible.

We want to introduce you to the deal, show you how it can help you and how to use it, but most importantly we want to:

  • Empower you to confidently make changes to how you source temporary staff and challenge the status quo with agencies
  • Help you manage your budget more effectively in this complex area, so that you can redirect savings to the areas in your schools where it is most needed.

Why attend a workshop?

Here’s what two of the SBP network leaders have said about our sessions:

CCS’ visit to our local primary SBP network proved invaluable. Jenny explained the supply teacher deal to us, which will in time save a lot of our schools a vast amount of money. Having the knowledge that we have the service to hand is extremely reassuring.”

Lesley Burton, Bradford SBM network 

“It was a very interesting session and provoked many questions with regards to how mark-ups from agencies differ and how schools can use this deal to gain both confidence when negotiating with agencies and budget savings.

Our own network will now be looking into collaborative working, to bring together a discounted supply offer for schools in the city. Jenny and her team will be working with us in the coming months to put this offer together, which will be a great help.

It was reassuring to know that moving forward, schools have both a contact and continued support from CCS.

We are hoping to arrange further sessions for schools in the new academic year and I would highly recommend other schools to engage in future sessions.”

Jo Coombe, Leicester Primary Business Managers forum
