Max Raymond - Head Teacher, St John's High School
It helps us, our preferred supply teachers and our agencies too, so everybody benefits.
Sophie Rayworth Headteacher, St. Mary's Secondary School
updatedge was introduced to us by a few of our supply teachers so we thought we would give it a go. I have to say it has been outstanding. We can now see when our preferred teachers are available and can send them offers when we need them. Once agreed we simply send a confirmation to our mutual agency for their assignment confirmation notice as normal and to make sure we meet the Ofsted obligations too.
Roger Weston - Business Manager
We were told about updatedge by one of our supply teachers. Since it is free to use and free to our teachers too we quickly started introducing it to all our recruitment consultants and all our teachers.
It has been really helpful and has saved us loads of time, our consultants are much better informed and are not calling around endlessly asking for availability updates. We took the decision to use the automated feed to our system and this has been wonderful by removing more admin from the process which has reduced our costs even further. Having more accurate information has improved our assignment ratios and we are delighted.
Working with agencies – who has control?
Agencies are great for schools to find good quality supply staff who are verified and meet the OFSTED safeguaring obligations.
Most schools prefer supply staff who know the school and children to reduce disruption.
With updatedge you decide who is offered work, giving schools the control and choice to improve quality.
