£95 - 135 per day


Temporary | Full Time



Primary Teacher


Despite the current situation Teaching Personnel were busy in the Autumn term for short term cover across the East Lancashire area. We cover areas including Blackburn, Burnley, Accrington, Nelson, Colne and Clitheroe. We have had a large number of short-term bookings covering a range of needs, these include; isolating due to COVID, unrelated COVID sickness, paternity, PPA, release time and NQT time. We anticipate the demand for short-term cover within schools will only increase from Monday 8th March 2021. There isn’t necessarily a teacher type we are looking for, but the best supply teachers tend to be the ones who have strong behaviour management, good flexible availability and ones who have a good strong presence in the classroom. Working on supply can be an excellent way to explore different schools and year groups across the East Lancashire area.

As a supply teacher, you may be required to teach in EYFS, KS1 and KS2; however we will endeavour to match the right year group with your preference and experience. There is also the possibility that the short term supply work may well lead to further work in school, or even permanent work. Teaching Personnel have a range of schools using their services for supply; these schools will vary from REQUIRES IMPROVEMENT to OUTSTANDING and from multi-cultural to Community Schools and Independent Schools.
