What is The National Supply Pool for Wales?

The Welsh Government committed to ‘develop options for a sustainable model of supply teaching with fair work at its heart’. The Minister for Education and Welsh Language agreed plans to procure and implement an online booking platform for all maintained schools and local authorities that want to employ supply staff directly.

The Welsh Government has partnered with Teacher Booker, an online platform, to create the National Supply Pool for Wales, providing teachers & support staff with direct supply work opportunities from schools and potential eligibility for the Teachers’ Pension Scheme.

If you are a Supply Teacher, Teaching Assistant or Cover Supervisor looking for supply work in Wales, register for the National Supply Pool for Wales below.

We’d like to reassure you that the new booking platform will provide access to teachers’ pay in line with the STPC(W)D and the teacher pension scheme.

The National Supply Pool for Wales will be a staggered implementation across all LAs in Wales. It will start with Anglesey which we are in the process of implementing and eventually roll out across every LA in Wales. In the meantime, we are inviting supply staff to register on the platform to ensure that they have created their profile ready for when this platform is rolled out in their Local Authority area over the coming months.

The software license fee for any school users, supply teachers or support staff has been paid for by the Government so it will be free for all to access.

Teacher Booker is a software company from which the Welsh Government has procured our booking and compliance platform to launch a National Supply Pool for Wales. This will allow schools to post jobs without agency margins and supply teachers to be paid at a better rate and have access to TPS (where applicable), whilst not costing schools any more.

Once you have begun the registration process, you will be prompted to upload documents to the Vetting tab. These include:
– CV
