Types Of Work Available

Daily Supply

This is the option the majority of candidates choose to pursue initially. This is when we place a candidate in one of our provisions to cover absence from school due to illness or other commitments. The benefits of daily work are that it gives you the flexibility to experience many schools and a variety of locations. This will in turn give you a good taste as to what school or year group you prefer should you be offered a long term position.

Short-term Supply

This is a placement where a candidate can work up to 6 weeks at a selected provision. This allows you to gain greater knowledge and take on more responsibility of what a permanent staff member would do on a day to day basis. Duties for candidates taking on a short term contract would be more than someone on daily supply and would be responsible for planning work and carrying out the duties of a permanent employee.

Long-term Supply

This is a contract for more than half a term. Whether you are a teaching assistant or a teacher, long term supply allows you to take more responsibility for the position you are fulfilling. You will be a large part of the life of the school.

Permanent Work

Should you be offered a permanent contract through Enlighten Supply Pool, this would mean that some schools would recruit you directly from Enlighten Supply Pool.
