The Department does not register supply teacher agencies. However, the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) do have a list of agencies that currently hold the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) Audited Education status. This is available on line and maintained by REC: https://www.rec.uk.com/business-support/audited/audited-members-directory.
To support schools to achieve value for money when using supply agencies, we are working with CCS to develop a commercial framework for agency supply teachers. The framework will bring transparency to agency margins and require agencies to adhere to standard levels of practice, including the use of temp-to-perm fees. The framework is expected to be available for schools to use from September 2018.
