We are pleased to announce that we have been selected as a framework supplier by Scotland Excel to provide high quality supply teacher booking solutions for their member councils.
The agreement, which will see us, along with four other providers, support members, councils and other bodies across Scotland to fill their required supply teacher and support staff vacancies, alongside other council staff requirements, will run from April 2021 – March 2025.
We demonstrated not only the technical ability to deliver the required recruitment solution for Scotland Excel, but a competitive commercial offer too.
Speaking about the appointment, Vamsi Vadde, CEO of Teacher Booker, said: “Since 2017, we have been supporting schools to save thousands with a range of fully vetted staff and user-friendly online tools. From individual settings to large multi-school networks and Local Authorities, we empower our customers with the flexibility to control their provision, save money and ensure a fair wage for staff, regardless of the role or requirement.
“We are delighted to be working with Scotland Excel and to have the opportunity to demonstrate this impact for councils across Scotland.”
Our bespoke approach to supply teacher management will support councils to remove the financial strain associated with the often-challenging cycle of staff turnover, help manage the varied recruitment and workforce needs of schools across Scotland, minimise administrative burden and embed the quality and values schools and councils uphold.
Vamsi continued: “The past year has seen unprecedented challenges for schools, not just with the impact of lockdown and integration of remote learning but with the constant demands of fluctuating staff levels as teachers and support staff are required to shield or self-isolate. Through this agreement in Scotland and our work across the whole of the UK, we are committed to supporting schools to deliver consistent and high-quality education for pupils, not just today, but long into the future.”
