Supply Plus



25th July 2018

I would however like to thank you and your team for looking after me so very well in my return to teaching, your office has been incredibly professional from start to finish and it has felt like having a safety net should I wish to query anything. Many thanks for all your hard work and I will continue to recommend Supply Plus to teachers and Headteachers as a professional but friendly service to use’

N.B, Teacher, July 2018


'As we are fast approaching the end of term I wanted to send you an email, thanking you for your support during my first year with Supply Plus. Your professionalism, commitment and dedication have ensured that my first year as a teacher has been an extremely pleasurable experience'.

S.G, Teacher, July 2018


‘I'd really like to thank you and the team for being such a great organisation.  You have all been so friendly and professional, especially first thing in the morning! I have really enjoyed working for you, and have been recommending you far and wide’

J.L, Teacher, July 2018


‘Working with Supply Plus has been a pleasure. The staff are friendly and supportive and listen to feedback you give about schools and classes. They are prompt to act and call you for work and understand the ins and outs of the job. Their online timesheet and availability system is straightforward and very little day to day paperwork is required. I do all of mine on my phone! If you're looking for long term cover jobs, let them know and they will keep an eye out for these opportunities and recommend you to their clients where appropriate. In short, Supply Plus are a pleasure to work for’.

A.B, Teacher, July 2018


‘I have found working for Supply Plus extremely beneficial. I have worked for Supply Plus for two years and I have found they are brilliant at finding you work. I have had long term supply roles which has allowed me to start my NQT year and during periods where I have not been booked in on long term Supply I have had regular bookings. This also allowed me to visit a range of schools and enhance my teaching practice. I was able to get my name out there as a teacher and as a result I went back to a range of schools on a regular basis. The communication with Supply Plus is great and someone is always happy to help and advise you. I would highly recommend working for Supply Plus’.

L.A, Teacher, July 2018


‘I have thoroughly enjoyed working with you and your team, everything from the very positive, welcoming phone calls, to the extremely flexible hours. It has all made working for you & Supply+ an exceptional experience. I have been recommending Supply+ to anyone remotely interested in supply work as I’m certain they will have a positive experience’

L.C, Teacher June 2018


'From the moment I joined Supply Plus, I knew I'd made the right choice for my supply agency. All the ladies I dealt with were friendly, helpful and efficient. No question, e-mail or enquiry was too much trouble, in fact they went out of their way to make me feel prepared and supported as I started Supply teaching journey.  Their professional approach was second to none and it was a privilege to represent Supply Plus in and around schools in Plymouth. I particularly liked the convenience of the online diary and was always pleasantly surprised how many, 'on the day' bookings I received. I've had the opportunity to build relationships with a number of schools which has led to a contract at a school I loved. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Nicky, and her team at Supply Plus and unreservedly recommend Supply Plus as a supply agency'.

C.F, Teacher, June 2018


 ‘I have absolutely loved working for Supply Plus. The staff are all so lovely and have always ensured that I am happy with my placements. I have been given the opportunity to teach all year groups at various schools, both short and long term placements. Working with Supply Plus has increased my confidence and has helped me to prepare for my new job! I recommend to anyone!’

S.F, Teacher, March 2018


‘I would like to thank the whole team for their support and fantastic communication through my short but brilliant time with Supply Plus.  From the application process to interview and subsequent bookings, I could not recommend them more highly. The booking system and amount of detail for each school is very informative and convenient.  The team were so kind and helpful and I hope to work for them again in the future’.

A.T, Teacher,  Feb 2018


‘I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support. The last few months have been wonderful getting to know so many different schools and so many different children. It has been a wonderful start to my new life in the south west and gave me the flexibility and consistency that I was looking for. Thank you again’.

T.C, Teacher,  Feb 2018


Thank you so much for all the opportunities and work you have given me, I will continue to recommend you to everyone because you have been so fantastic’

E.B, Teacher, December 2017


‘I am grateful for all the work that Supply+ has secured for me over the last few months and I would highly recommend you to anybody

S.N, Teacher, December 2017


‘I have loved working with the company and hope that one day I may be able to do so again’

 S.G, Teacher, December 2017 


‘Thank you so much for all the CPD and teaching opportunities you have given to me over the last 18 months I have loved working for supply plus and look forward to starting my career off’

S.E, Teacher November 2017


I am eternally grateful for everything you all have done for me and thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all the support you have given’

S.R, Teacher, November 2017


I have had an enjoyable and personally rewarding time working for the agency and am very grateful to all the wonderful staff I have come into contact with; I will no doubt miss the role. I'd like to wish everyone at the agency continued success.

M.T, Teacher, November 2017


‘Supply Plus are a professional and supportive supply agency. As an employee I benefited from both teaching experience and further CPD opportunities which have prepared me further for a full time position. I would not hesitate to work with them again in the future’.

C.P, Teacher 2017


‘After moving from Birmingham to Plymouth, I needed to find a reputable supply agency that could offer plenty of work and support. After a successful application with Supply Plus, I realised that not only would I get the work and support but I also was given CPD as part of the opportunity.  Work has been in abundance, in a wide range of schools. I have also had a long term assignment, in a lovely school that has allowed me to build professional relationships with staff and children. Selecting days that you want to work and submitting time sheets (which was a real pain with previous supply companies) is extremely easy and paperless, thanks to their online system. In one of my assignments, I was informed about a post. Supply Plus opened the door to this role and I am extremely grateful to the staff for their assistance and encouragement. Anyone who is thinking of a supply role in the South West, should look no further. I highly recommend employment with Supply Plus and their devoted team, who will support and advise you. I certainly won't think twice after this role ends’.

O.D, Teacher, November 2017


'I have really enjoyed the experience of supply teaching and found the staff really friendly and helpful. I would like to return to Supply Plus in the future'.

R.G, Teacher, November 2017


‘I would like to thank you, both for the opportunity Supply+ gave me to work as a supply teacher and for the excellent, friendly and thoroughly professional manner in which you have all looked after me’

G.S, Teacher, September 2017


‘I have been very impressed with the whole team at Supply Plus and would want to pass on my thanks to all I have communicated with. The team have always been polite and helpful. I have enjoyed being able to have the opportunity to teach in a range of schools in the Plymouth area, and particularly being able to work in one school on a longer term basis. Thank you for all your hard work over the year’

A.L, Teacher, July 2017


‘Supply + are, in my opinion, unique amongst supply agencies for the support they offer teachers who register with them. I felt that my preferences were always listened to and I was never pushed to do anything that I couldn't oblige with. There was never bad feeling if I was unable to work. All the staff, without exception are gentle, polite and treat you as a professional. As an experienced teacher I appreciated the fact that the managers of Supply + are able to bring their insight from years working in education to work with your needs balanced against the schools who use them. Furthermore, Supply + make it easy to plan your work diary and submit time sheets through their excellent online system. I was also given many opportunities for CPD which allowed me to keep in touch with recent developments in education and network with other teachers. On each assignment there is plenty of prior information e.g. directions, CP and Behaviour policies as well as opportunities to offer your own feedback on your experience. I would thoroughly recommend Supply + if you are considering a supply agency’.

 E.FM Teacher, July 2017


I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working with you at Supply Plus and whilst it was a short time, I have learned so much as a teacher experiencing a range of schools. You have all been so supportive since the first phone call I made to you right to the end, nothing is ever too much trouble - you really are an amazing team!! Thank you so much for everything and I now feel even more prepared to start my new job in September. I will be sure to come back if needed in the future’

R.G, Teacher July 2017


‘Working with Supply+ has been incredible for so many different reasons. In terms of the staff, they are flexible to your needs (no Satnav and stayed on the phone until I arrived) and endeavour to find you work no matter your availability. The staff are very personable and know everyone who works with them. Working with such a well-known company renowned for its reliability and professionalism has allowed for networking opportunities within Plymouth. They are committed to providing you with CPD in the form of hub meetings and facilitate short term and long term opportunities within schools. I whole heartedly recommend Supply+. Thank you for everything you have done for me’.

D.G., Teacher, July 2017


‘I also wanted to thank you and everyone at Supply Plus for all the help and support over the last year. I would never have got the job without all the experience I have gained this year. The team are always happy and helpful, and I have enjoyed this year immensely!’

N.W, Teacher, July 2017


‘Having started to work with other supply agencies, after 3 weeks, I decided I only wanted to work with Supply+.  From the outset they were friendly, professional and approachable and to add to this, I has continuous bookings.  Their online system (unique to a supply agency in Plymouth) made it very easy for me to show what days I could and couldn't work and then share this information with them rather than having unnecessary phone calls.  It also meant I could check exactly what had been booked for me.  Nothing has been too much trouble for Nicky and her team.  At all times you feel part of that team, being invited to join CPD to keep up to date, listening to your feedback about your experiences in different schools and what your ideal supply work looks like.  I have been very welcome throughout my time at Supply + and although they were new in the Secondary supply market they were the most honest, professional and supportive agency I have worked with’. 

C.M, Secondary Teacher, July 2017


‘Firstly, THANK YOU for employing me to work for you at Supply Plus. It has been a really good seven months and has opened up a new world of friends and colleagues that I would never have had the pleasure of working with had I stayed in my previous teaching job. I have met some wonderful people and had some brilliant experiences in so many schools’

J.G, Teacher, July 2017.


'Supply Plus have been a pleasure to work for and as an NQT they have played a big part in developing my confidence. The regular bookings have allowed me to gain knowledge of local schools and numerous CPD opportunities have given me new ideas and improved my teaching. The team have been extremely helpful and friendly, which has allowed me to feel well supported. Their efficient online booking system is easy to use and communication overall is excellent. I've obtained a permanent job through Supply+ and would definitely recommend their service. Thank you for such a positive experience!'

A.D. Teacher, June 2017


‘I’ve had an incredible amount of work since I’ve started with Supply Plus. I just wanted to say thanks so much for providing me with such a great, positive introduction to supply teaching. My confidence and skills are growing by the day and I’m really enjoying my experiences so far’.

C.H, Teacher, April 2017

‘Thank you so much for your kindness and support during my time working with you. I have truly loved doing supply and know that if my circumstances change at all I shall be in contact with you immediately!’

C.W, Teacher, April 2017


'I started working with Supply Plus in September 2016. I felt quite nervous at the thought of doing supply work but upon meeting the team they immediately made me feel more at ease with it. The team are very professional and always seem happy to help. I had a mixture of pre- bookings and on the day bookings and when being asked to work on the day the team always go through the details of distance/ parking and check it will be suitable'.

 S.H, Teacher, February 2017


‘Supply Plus was a perfect start as an NQT. Through CPD training, which they email regularly for people to sign up for, meant I could continue to learn and develop as a teacher. The chance to experience teaching in a variety of schools meant I could build my confidence and work on my teaching style. It is clear how much the people at Supply Plus care about their staff and I would like to say thank you for all their support these last 6 months. I would not hesitate to work with them again!’

C.P., Teacher January 2017


‘It has been lovely working with Supply Plus and I hope to work with you again in the future’

 O.M., Teacher, Bristol, Dec 2016


I would really like to thank Supply + on kickstarting my teaching career in the best way possible. As an NQT I was nervous about starting my teaching properly however, Supply + enabled me to experience working in a variety of schools and provided priceless experience enhancing my teaching ability. The staff are supportive, kind and very helpful in making sure each working day is a pleasure to take part in. I highly recommend Supply + to any NQT or experienced teacher who would like to work as part of a dedicated team supplying teachers across Plymouth. Thank you for all of your support for the past year, I look forward to potentially working with yourselves again in the future.

A.J, Teacher, December 2016


'I would like to thank you all for your help and support during the first few months of my NQT year. I have found the opportunity to work in many varied schools invaluable and would highly recommend Supply Plus. If the need arises I would have no hesitation in working with you again in the future'.

M.Y, Teacher, December 2016


I would like to thank all of you at Supply Plus. During my time with yourselves you have all been nothing but helpful, efficient and most importantly friendly and welcoming’

P.K., Teacher, December 2016


‘Many thanks for all your help over the years. You and the team have always been helpful and efficient and a pleasure to work with, and I have thoroughly enjoyed doing supply teaching with you’

 R.K., Teacher, December 2016.


‘I would really like to take this opportunity to thank Supply + for all of their support. The team have been wonderful and I have had lots of opportunities to work in various primary schools. I came to you lacking in confidence and experience (NQT) and without your support and positivity, I would not be the person I am today. I think everyone should try supply work upon leaving university. It provides you with an insight in to schools and helps you grow as a teacher. I have never considered any other supply agency but yourselves. I will truly miss working with you all and would return in a heartbeat, should the time arise again’.

S.R, Teacher, November 2016


'Thank you all so much for getting me back into teaching again. You've been a great team to work with, and supply has really helped me to figure out where I want to be and what I want to be doing'

 R.B, Teacher, October 2016


Thank you so much for sourcing employment, for your kindnesses, and for your support. I wish you all the best for the future

C.N, Teacher, October 2016


 ‘I would like to express my thanks to everyone at Supply +. You have been a great company to work for during my break from regular teaching, and I would not hesitate to return in the future as and when my circumstances change’

J.K, Teacher, October 2016


Supply Plus was just what I needed. A chance to exercise my teaching muscles in a variety of schools. A caring, professional team who get to know their supply teachers and place them according to their strengths. They offer continuing professional development opportunities to keep you up to date with educational changes. The online shared calender offers instant access to block out unavailable days if you have other commitments, and at a glance overview of your upcoming work. You can choose to be available for on the day work or like myself, opt for future bookings only, for childcare reasons. You receive an email with each booking with details of the booking and attachments of safeguarding and behaviour policies for that setting.
I highly recommend Supply Plus as an agency to work for. A caring, committed team, supplying high quality teachers wherever they are needed.

V.M, Teacher, October 2016


'Thank you to supply plus. As a company I think you are fantastic for teachers and I have really enjoyed doing supply through you.

C.G, Teacher, October 2016


'Thank you very much for your support over the last academic year and I look forward to potentially working with you again in the future'.

E.R, Teacher, October 2016


'Supply plus is an amazing agency to work with. They are incredibly accommodating and provide so much training and support to keep all staff up to date with latest legislation changes. This in turn meant that we were up to date when we visited schools on supply!’

N.H, Teacher, September 2016


‘I would just like to take the time to thank supply plus for being supportive and accommodating throughout. I have been sent to some fantastic schools and the team in Plymouth are nothing but friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend the agency for both schools and teachers looking for day to day work’.

S.P, Teacher, Bristol, July 2016


'Thank you for all your support, information and for securing me a long term booking so quickly after I joined your agency. I will not hesitate to recommend you as an agency to my friends and colleagues. I wish you every success'

A.L., Teacher, July 2016


‘I just wanted to express my gratitude to the entire Supply Plus team particularly for the training and workshops. It has been an experience that will continue to define my teaching career. I look forward to coming back to the team if I ever get the opportunity. Thanks once again’.

C.D, Teacher, July 2016


‘During my time working with Supply Plus, I have found the staff to be friendly and efficient as well as very thorough with DBS and safeguarding procedures. This efficiency is clearly reflected in their increasing reputation with schools, and as a result I have had no shortage of work. For me, the ability to manage my own diary and submit timesheets electronically was very useful. I was also impressed with regular news of longer-term opportunities. I would highly recommend Supply Plus to both NQTs and experienced teachers’.

M.R, Teacher, July 2016


‘Thank you very much for taking me on as a supply teacher this academic year; I have felt truly supported and looked after by Supply Plus’

B.A, Teacher, July 2016


'Supply Plus has been a fantastic start to my teaching career. It has been very interesting working in different types of schools knowing that I have the support from the team and the school teachers that I work with. Supply Plus are always happy to hear of any CPD opportunities which you think may be relevant and try their hardest to accommodate your needs. I am very thankful for the opportunity and experience and I wouldn't think twice about coming back to work for you'

K.H, Teacher, July 2016


'I have been really happy working with supply plus and you have been always so supportive and helpful. You have helped me to bridge the gap between schools. It's  been really interesting being in different schools across the city and experiencing how  things are approached throughout the schools. It's definitely developed my practice and as an experienced teacher that is both eye opening and invaluable. I would recommend to any teacher at any stage in their career to experience this. I am sad to say goodbye to supply plus'

C.F, Teacher, July 2016


‘Thank you so much for all the support you have all given me the last couple of years, you have always been understanding and flexible when my circumstances have changed and I really appreciate it.  When I am looking to get back into supply work I will be happy to come back and work for Supply Plus’

R.W, Teacher July 2016


‘It has been a pleasure working with you all and I have gained a lot of experience from working within the different schools. Many thanks for being so supportive'

L.E. Teacher July 2016


'I would like to thank you and the Supply Plus team for your kind support throughout. I have very much enjoyed working with you all'

P.H, Teacher, June 2016.


I've really enjoyed working for you and would like to thank you all for being a great team. I'd highly recommend you to other teachers.

D.M, Teacher June 2016

S.S, Teacher, June 2016


I have really enjoyed working for you over this past year and feel that I have gained such valuable experience by doing supply work. I now feel prepared and confident to take on my NQT year! Thank you for this opportunity.

I have greatly enjoyed working for Supply+ and will continue to do so until the end of this academic year. If the situation ever arises I would gladly return to Supply+.

What a fantastic agency Supply Plus has been. Thank you for all you have done.

C.S, Teacher, March 2016


Thank you Supply plus for your professionalism, friendly approach and for finding me a full time temporary contract on my first booking - outstanding!

N.H, Teacher, January 16


Over the autumn, I worked with three supply agencies in Bristol; of these, Supply+ was by far the most professional and well organised.  Their staff were always very helpful and friendly, and the online system for bookings is superb.  They expect high standards from their teachers, and in return offer a very high standard of service to their supply staff, including higher rates of pay.  I cannot recommend them strongly enough!
J.B, Teacher – January 2016


I would like to thank you for all your hard work and professionalism in securing me work since I re-joined Supply+ in September. I would very much like to return  to working for you in November 2016.

S.T, Teacher Dec 2015


I have worked with Supply Plus for the last four weeks and have found them to be very helpful and supportive. Every member of staff I have spoken to have been very welcoming and have always given time to explain either how things work or what to do. As an experienced teacher, I have been matched well in placements and helped to feel settled and been well informed. I also feel that my skills and experience are considered and valued by both Supply+ and the schools I have worked in. I have enjoyed working in different schools and it is good to know I can also give feedback and feel genuinely listened to. The process of receiving and confirming bookings is straight forward and dependable. Communication is excellent and all schools speak very highly of supply plus.

C.F, Teacher, December 2015


I have been very happy with my experience at supply plus and did not expect to find a permanent job after such a short time! So thank you.

C.H, Teacher, December 2015


I would like to take this opportunity to thank the whole of supply plus for your excellent organisation, communication and for offering this fantastic experience.

L.B, Teacher, November 2015


I was lucky enough to get a full time temporary contract, with your help through Supply+, at Drake Primary School. I have been here since the start of the year and has been super so far. I cannot thank you enough for the support and opportunities Supply+ gave to me!

S.B, Teacher, November 2015


It is quite clear that Supply + puts children at the heart of everything it does and your passion and enthusiasm for supporting schools in the local area really impressed me. I would recommend Supply + to anyone.

 R.H, Teacher, October 2015


I want to say how happy I have been, I have felt very taken care of. Any questions, concerns have been answered promptly. I love the online is amazing for those of us who have extreme organisational needs! C.T.


Working with Supply+ was an amazing experience, it really helped build my confidence as a teacher. I would like to thank the Supply+ team who work very hard to support and develop teachers working for them. E.C


I cannot thank you enough for the amazing experience you have given me. You are an absolutely amazing company to work for and I recommend you to all teachers I meet. A.H


I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Supply+. I graduated in the summer and feel that the expertise of Supply+ has given me the confidence to enter my NQT year to teach a diverse range of children. I have had 100% positive experiences in every school in Bristol.

Everything is emailed directly, if you have any queries they are dealt with almost immediately, and they are very supportive. I have taken so much from this experience and it was soley down to the great way Supply+ is set up. 10/10 and would recommend it highly to anyone wanting supply work. Supply+ is such an organised agency! H.B.


I have really enjoyed working for you over the last year and found your operation extremely professional and considerate of the needs of the schools, the children and myself. S.T


Supply+ is by far the best supply agency to work for. Having worked for various other agencies - Supply+ came along and showed the teaching world how supply should be done.

Supply+ allow you to work in a wide variety of schools with as much support and guidance as you need. All the team feel like family (in a good way!) and pay an excellent rate. Their links and excellent relationships wit so many schools create plenty of supply work and opportunites for long term/permanent positions. You are able to gain valuable experience and develop skills in a safe, secure environment.

I cannot recommend Supply+ highly enough. Thank you for everything. K.M


As an NQT starting my teaching career, I was extremely nervous about the prospect of being a supply teacher. However, my apprehension soon subsided once I had undertaken my couple of bookings and realised how reliable and stress free the whole process is.

The database and email system work really well. I know I am going to be reliably paid for the work that I do owing to the easy to use online claim system and I feel fairly remunerated for the work that I do with no ‘middle man’ taking their cut.

The staff at Supply+ are extremely supportive. I couldn’t have asked for a better support system both as a supply teacher and as an NQT. Supply+ also offers training courses to ensure their teachers are given CPD.

Supply+ offers you the opportunity to make an impression in schools. J.B

Just want to thank you all for the work you've put my way. Your organisation is amazing and should be used as a model nationwide. You have revolutionised supply teaching in this area. All the best for the future. L.R.

I am so excited and pleased that I can start my NQT and would like to thank you all at Supply+ for all your efforts and friendly support. SV

Thanks so much for being a great company to work for. SW

Wow!  First time I have used your supply service - what a helpful and efficient service - thank you. Headteacher, Exeter

Having returned to teaching I found myself in a very fragile professional position. The 5 year time limit to complete my induction year was hanging in the balance and I had a plethora of questions that needed answers. Over the last 6 months Supply+ provided me with a supportive environment that provided excellent CPD opportunities. Any questions I struggled to find answers to were chased up in a timely manner with comprehensive results. The staff have been friendly, proactive and customer orientated in their approach to developing the next generation of teachers, and I wholeheartedly recommend them to all supply teachers I meet on my travels. I believe Supply+ are the best supply teaching agency because they were created by the Head Teachers for the teachers. Their motives are genuine, and they pay what you deserve!” J.W

"Working with Supply+ has enabled me to broaden my teaching experience and gain valuable skills needed to become a successful teacher. Supply+ has also provided me with opportunities to talk to and observe outstanding teachers to see how they teach, plan and assess children's learning."  O.M

“I have just secured a permanent teaching job and I would like to say a massive thank you for all my supply work this year which has provided me with so much experience, I do not think I would have been offered the position without having had those experiences.” A.L

"Thank you for all your support and finding me a job!......also for such a positive time working at Supply+" R.D

"I just want to thank you all for the wonderful work and support. If it wasn't for that I wouldn't have learnt what I thank you again." L.D

"I think your whole team need congratulating for the smooth and positive introduction of Supply + which is clearly a great benefit to the schools in Plymouth and the graduates of both Universities." Plymouth University

"Thank you all so much for all you have done during the past academic year - you are the best supply agency (and employment agency) I have worked for." SK

"I thank everyone at Supply + for the support you have given me throughout my first year of teaching. It has been an amazing experience and I would recommend Supply + to anyone who would like to receive first hand valuable experiences in a variety of different schools in Plymouth." MH
