Agency Workers Regulations (AWR)

We support our schools and teachers through AWR and take a proactive approach to ensure cost-effectiveness within the regulations.

Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

We believe all teachers should receive the option to undertake CPD training. Our dedicated Education Development Managers are on hand to provide CPD training to our teachers and support staff, as well as Safeguarding training where needed.

Nurseries and Early Years Settings

Here at Simply Education, we also offer assistance to a range of Early Years Settings. This ensures that staff are qualified and experienced to suit your requirements.

Simply Education has been supporting a number of nurseries since 2013, recruiting qualified Childcare Practitioners and assisting with day-to-day and long-term supply as well as permanent recruitment.

We recognise the importance and need for differentiation between compulsory Education-based recruitment and the supply needs of Childcare providers. With this in mind, we have created a dedicated Nursery desk to effectively match the specific requirements of Nursery settings.

Our recruitment, compliance and booking procedures have all been adapted to ensure that both our registered staff and our partnered nurseries receive the highest level of service and commitment.

Day Nurseries

We provide qualified Childcare Practitioners in accordance to your shift and ratio requirements. We have Level 2 and Level 3 Assistants, as well as Fully Qualified Practitioners, available for day-to-day, short-term, long-term and permanent work.

Pre-Schools and School Based Nurseries

We have a team of experienced pre-school staff available to suit a variety of recruitment needs. Most of our staff are also available to help with wrap-around care, should they be needed.

Children’s Centres

We have a range of practitioners who have also worked in Children’s Centres as well as experienced Family Workers, Early Years and Child Development Graduates who are available for sessional work.

Playgroups and Crèches

Our staff can also be booked to help with small sessional playgroups should you need a helping hand.

How to book nursery staff with Simply Education

We provide staff at a competitive hourly rate and request that individual bookings are a minimum of three hours. If you have a regular booking, which is less than three hours, please contact one of our dedicated Nursery Consultants, who will help you with your supply requirement. We also have Fully Qualified Early Years Teachers who are available for half day or full day bookings. Many of our settings opt to book out a Fully Qualified Teacher to deliver sessions to advanced pre-school children once a week or once every two weeks. Please contact the team to discuss fees for booking qualified teachers.
