Supply cover is essentially driven by staff absence due mainly to sickness, training and maternity leave. There are many reasons why people choose to work on a supply basis and there are many benefits to this kind of work. At Premier Education we will help you to decide which type of work suits you best-it is our main objective to tailor our services to you and your exact requirements.

We can provide work throughout the following education sectors: Early Years, Primary Schools, Secondary Schools and Special Needs Schools.

We can provide the following positions: Primary teacher, Secondary teacher, Special Needs teacher, Cover Supervisor, Support Assistant, Teaching Assistant, Special Needs Assistant, Higher Level Teaching Assistant, Nursery Nurse and Nursery Assistant.

We can provide the following types of temporary work : Emergency and Day to Day Cover, Short term placements and Maternity / Termly contracts. Placements can start from half a day a week and you can choose exactly how many days a week you wish to work and which days they will be. You can vary these days each week or stick to the same working pattern- it is entirely up to you. If you wish to work 5 days a week or require stability and will only consider long term placements such as termly work or maternity contracts then that is fine too- you tell us during your interview and we will do our best to suit your requirements.
