Information for Supply Staff

Unfortunately we no longer hold a supply list and are no longer directly involved in the recruitment of supply teachers or support staff – this responsibility is now directly with schools and colleges.

We have provided below direct links to some of the main external recruitment agencies that Manchester schools/colleges use for the recruitment of supply staff.  

Please Note:  Providing the links below is not an endorsement/recommendation by Manchester City Council.  They are the main supply agencies used by schools/colleges within the boundary of Manchester City Council. 








Information for schools and colleges...

The government DfE have provided information and guidance to schools who are looking to hire supply teachers and agency workers.  The information provided also includes guidance on how schools can get value for money, avoid fees and find local agencies who complete thorough background and safeguarding checks.

Important information for Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs)...

If you are an NQT, you are still eligible to start or continue your induction whilst doing supply work so long as the period of employment is for a minimum contract length of 1 full induction term - please ask your agency representative for further information and remember to inform your school/college that you would like to start/continue induction - if you are not registered for Induction, you are not under Induction.

NB:  NQTs can undertake short-term (under a term) supply work for a maximum of 5 years from the date awarded QTS.  This is the only time limit that applies to NQTs and statutory Induction.
