Created by teachers for schools and teachers to provide fairer cover for all.

Hive Supply Teachers is brand new app-based supply agency on the South Coast of England providing a way for teachers and schools to connect seamlessly. As teachers ourselves, we want to ensure that schools pay less for cover so that more money is available to spend on children and that teachers get fairer pay to reflect the incredible work they do. Through the Hive Supply Teachers App, schools and teachers can connect much more easily to directly organise the essential cover needed in the classroom.

We have launched in the South East – sign up today!

Book a Supply

Add a school quickly and simply send out notifications as you need cover. The platform is available 24/7, 365 days a year. It will save schools time, money and stress. As a teacher, manage your own calendar to suit you and let the jobs come to you.

Localised search for schools and teachers

Teachers can set a distance they are happy to travel for work- this can be adjusted at any time. Schools will notify all teachers in a certain radius of the school – this will automatically increase if you have not found a supply to cover in your school.

Transparent costs and pricing

We are not like traditional agencies, who have large overhead costs they need to cover. Therefore, we can set our prices low and keep them low, while also paying teachers a fair wage. Check out our Teacher and School tabs for more detail on pay. We will also never charge ‘introduction’ fees for teachers applying for jobs in the schools we work with.

    By teachers for teachers

    We are not your normal recruiters – we are teachers and leaders in education. We know what schools need and what teachers want, because we are teachers who work in schools! 

    Our aim is to do the best for the schools and teachers we serve. Happy schools and teachers, mean that they have happy children who learn well. 

    Safer recruitment

    We have a rigorous vetting system, that is in compliance with DfE Keeping Children Safe in Education. This is then sent to you digitally for your Single Central Record. The information will include a photo, so that you can cross check the teacher as they book into school. All our vetting is done by colleagues who have completed the Safer Recruitment Training. 

    Our vetting process includes…

    • Identity 
    • Right to Work 
    • Verification of professional qualifications (including overseas qualification equivalency) 
    • Enhanced DBS and/or overseas police check 
    • Barred List check 
    • Prohibition from teaching check 
    • Disqualification by Association declaration
