We are proud of our growing list of agency partners, who each play a vital role in ensuring that no classroom is left without a teacher.
We believe in building strong and long-lasting relationships, and over the last few years, we have created a culture where our agency partners have a real opportunity to succeed.
How we work
When you start working with us as part of our preferred agency panel, we’ll want to gain a true understanding of your business, including the depth and range of services you offer.
We’ll ensure you have all the information you need too – by providing you with clear job descriptions, direction and feedback, and by showing you how well you are doing against our performance scorecard.
We make sure there is healthy competition on requisitions and that you – and all our agency partners – have plenty of opportunities to grow within the Supply Register marketplace. Every supply agency we work with signs a contract to supply at banded pay and standard charge rates, so unless specifically requested by the school, all our agencies are placed on a level playing field, competing not on cost, but on performance and quality of supply staff.
Finally, as a preferred agency partner, you’ll work with a friendly and dedicated regional Partnership Management Team, who’ll always be on hand to help and advise.
Benefits of joining The Supply Register as an Agency Partner
By joining our preferred agency panel, you will gain access to all of our Multi-Academy Trusts across England and Wales. This is a great opportunity to expand the reach of your business, by supplying your services to schools and academies that you may not have worked with before.
Every supply agency we work with signs a contract to supply at banded pay and standard charge rates. Unless specifically requested by the school all our agencies are placed on a level playing field and therefore compete on performance and quality of supply staff.
There are no fees, ongoing charges or annual licensing costs to get on The Supply Register panel.
Time Saving Portal
Booking requests arrive with you via our Agency Portal so there’s no need for your consultants to be chasing schools in the morning; simply log in and submit candidates for the jobs waiting to be filled.
The Agency Portal removes the need for paper-based timesheets and invoices, numbers and varied booking confirmations, reducing the administration and indirect costs involved.
Legislation is constantly evolving. Our technology platform provides compliance visibility e.g. when flagging candidates that have reached their qualifying period for Agency Workers Regulations (AWR) even for assignments over multiple locations.
Shortened & Regular Payment Terms
All supplying agencies benefit from 25 day payment terms regardless of the invoice being paid by the school. Our commitment to the Prompt Payment Code (PPC) and our timesheet to invoice process results in no adjustments and no need for any ‘pay when paid’ clauses.
Many schools work with lots of agencies in low volumes. By being on a smaller preferred agency panel, our agencies enjoy access to higher volumes of jobs in return for standardised rates. There are often other opportunities to supply to our other clients in the UK.
