The Taylor Review of Modern Working Practices was a large and comprehensive report which deserves considerable thought before the Government responds.

Although the report didn’t make specific recommendations on supply teachers, Matthew Taylor did make a number of recommendations relating to agency workers and atypical working, including improving the transparency of information which must be provided to agency workers and changes to the enforcement regime for the Agency Workers Directive.

We are currently considering all the recommendations and will respond to the Review in due course.
