The DBS Disclosure and references are the key areas that effect how quickly we will be able to clear your file and ultimately offer you work. To help this happen quickly please provide references details as soon as possible along with direct email address where applicable. It is also a good idea to contact the referees for consent for the references and to ask them if they can return them straight away.
How much notice will I be given for a new booking?
This can vary depending on the notice given by the school and it can be a few weeks to last minute emergency bookings in the morning. We will give you as much notice as possible however due to the nature of supply work this can mean last minute on the day bookings.
Who do I contact if I am off sick or unable to attend a booking?
Please give us a much notice as possible if you are unable to attend a confirmed booking. You can contact our out of office service upto 10pm if you are unable to make it into school the next day. If you need to call on the day, please call the office number before 8am. Please ensure you call rather than text or email to ensure we have got the message.
How can I maximise my chances of regular work?
Keep in contact with us and ensure we have your availability for work each week. Ensuring that you are ready each morning for any last minute calls that come and that you have you phone accessible so you don’t miss those last minute calls which are covered very quickly. Candidates who are in regular communication with us are often the first to be contacted for bookings.
I have previously been registered with you and want to re-apply. What do I need to do?
In order for us to re-activate your file for work we will need to update your references, documentation and clearance checks. Please call the office on 01925 594940 and we will be able to advise you on what information we will need to do this.
Do I need a timesheet?
No. We confirm with the school your days worked. However if anything changes to what we originally booked you for or you are unable to attend a booking it is essential that you make us aware of this so we can confirm/advise the school. Please ensure you sign in and out of the school book.
