Supreme Education saves schools and local authorities millions of pounds with automated recruitment system for supply teachers
Supreme Education, one of the UKs leading education recruitment specialists, has saved local authorities millions of pounds since the launch of its revolutionary automated system for providing supply teachers and support staff to schools.
The technology allows schools through a partnered Local Authority service to source the most appropriate teachers online. The system automatically matches the most qualified teacher available from the local authority database and communicates directly with the teacher on the schools behalf.
Recruitment costs are removed from the process as once the schools cover requirements have been entered on to the system there is no further need for human intervention. The only labour costs incurred are those accepted to combat the risks faced by child safety and education quality.
Local authorities have been able to save hundreds of thousands of pounds a year using the technology. Lambeth, which began using the system in 2006, has already saved over 750,000 and is now predicting a saving of over 500,000 every single year.
Gareth Williams, managing director of Supreme Education, said: Supreme Educations technology automates the schools recruitment service. At a time when local authorities and schools are facing budget cuts, our revolutionary system will help our clients to make significant reductions in the cost of recruiting supply teachers without compromising on safeguarding and quality.
Schools can contact Supreme Education 24 hours a day, seven days a week to arrange teacher bookings, while teachers can accept jobs via the phone and the web.
Supreme Education has been acknowledged by the DfE Quality Mark team for continually raising standards and has been commended by Local Authorities ensuring that face-to-face interviews take place and that all necessary checks on candidates are carried out. The technology allows schools to identify teachers using a colour digital photograph before they arrive on school premises.
Five major South London boroughs - Southwark, Wandsworth and Bexley, Lambeth and Lewisham - and a number of major northern authorities such as Blackburn and Blackpool have collaborated to provide shared services recruiting supply teachers to schools through Supreme Educations technology.
The technological platform that Supreme has provided the education sector, and its cost and efficiency benefits have resulted in Managing Director, Gareth Williams nomination for IRP business Leader award in July 2010.
