At CCS, we understand the pressure schools, academies and other education organisations are under to find the right temporary staff quickly, compliantly and cost-efficiently. That’s why our experts have created the supply teachers deal.

We’ve worked closely with the Department for Education to create the deal which enables you to find audited and accredited agencies using our agency selection tool. These agencies will help you fill temporary and fixed term teaching and non-teaching roles, from head teachers to clerical workers.

The deal is available to charities/non-profit schools, but is not available to independent (for-profit) schools.

Service options

There are three service options you can choose from:

Preferred supplier list (lot 1)

The preferred supplier list is supported by our agency selection tool to help you find suitable suppliers in your area. You’ll need to know the type of worker and the length of assignment you need. You can then contact suitable suppliers directly.

Master vendor managed service (lot 2)

Master vendors provide workers either directly from their own resource pool or from other suppliers in their approved supply chain. As there are several suppliers available, you’ll need to run a further competition to select the supplier that’s right for you.

Neutral vendor managed service (lot 3)

A neutral vendor creates contracts with other suppliers to fulfil your requirements, but doesn’t provide candidates of their own. There is one neutral vendor managed service provider on the framework so you can contact them directly to sign an order form.
