We are working with the Department for Education (DfE) to develop a new commercial agreement for the provision of supply teachers for the public education sector.
The agreement will cover the provision of all temporary and fixed term teaching and non-teaching roles, ranging from unqualified teaching assistants, cover supervisors, and supply teachers, up to head teacher and leadership roles.
A Prior Information Notice (PIN) has recently been published (please monitor the ‘Important Links’ section below to remain up to date on the project timescales). If you are able to provide these services, and would like to express your interest in bidding, please follow the instructions in the PIN.
CCS and DfE jointly presented at the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) education sector meeting on 1 March 2017. This presentation included an introduction to our workforce team, an overview of the supply teachers requirement, the challenges schools are facing in this category, plus an overview of how to respond to tenders and the procurement process we will follow.
As part of our ongoing pre-OJEU market engagement activities, we have produced a questionnaire containing the proposed approach for some of the key elements of the procurement. This offers stakeholders the opportunity to feedback on our proposed approach before the specification and commercial model are finalised.
Please complete and return the questionnaire to SupplyTeachers[at]crowncommercial.gov[dot]uk
We will provide feedback on the questionnaire and further information on the procurement via this page and at:
REC Education Sector meeting (members only) – Thursday 25 May London
APSCo Education Sector meeting (members only) – Tuesday 6 June London
Thursday 8 June
Details on timings of the webinars and how to register to follow shortly.
