Supply teaching as it should be
The supply teaching system in England is broken. Schools spend over £1.3 billion a year on supply teaching agencies, diverting valuable funds from frontline teaching. Yet schools still struggle to find the right teachers to fill their vacancies.
It could and should be much simpler. Humly’s new app-based solution gives schools a direct connection to quality supply teachers who are looking for work. This helps schools to save time and money as they no longer need to use traditional agencies. The app also helps schools to quickly identify and choose the right candidate for their available roles.
We’ve also listened carefully to schools to ensure that the quality of our teachers sets new standards. Following an extensive onboarding process that matches DfE requirements, Humly teachers receive job-specific training before entering the classroom. Moreover, our unique Express functionality guarantees that we’ll fill every vacancy for our Premium school customers every time.
Key product features
The Humly app provides everything you need to know about the teachers who are a match for your vacancy. It provides employment profile, previous experience and qualifications, expected pay and feedback from other supply teaching positions.
Finding suitable supply teachers shouldn’t involve lots of hassle and unnecessary admin. Complete your school profile, upload jobs as required and our app handles the rest of the application and recruitment process. It also automatically takes care of all timesheets!
You’ll only see the teachers that match your specific requirements. Helping you choose the teacher who’s best for your school rather than the best candidate for your supply agency.
Insight and support
Humly’s unique My Supply feature enables you to coordinate and manage your existing supply teachers. Our Premium functionality also helps school leaders to identify and understand their school’s key recruitment patterns.
Our school offer
Humly’s offer to schools is highly flexible and has been developed in response to detailed feedback from primary, secondary and MAT leaders. Schools can choose between two options.
Pay as you go
Schools have free and unlimited access to Humly’s app, recruitment platform and all associated services. Through the app, schools can upload an unlimited number of jobs, review applications and recruit teachers.
PAYG schools only pay Humly when they recruit through the app. A flat % commission is payable on every supply teaching day booked via Humly.
In addition to the core functionality outlined in Option 1, Premium Customers can also access a range of enhanced services. They can:
- Create and manage their own pool of supply teachers through My Supply.
- Access data, insight and reporting tools.
- Relax knowing that we guarantee to fill their vacancies, thanks to Humly Express.
- Convert Humly’s temporary staff to full-time staff free of charge, saving between £5k and £15k per role.
Premium School customers pay a reduced % commission on supply teaching days booked and a monthly subscription fee, based on their size and other key criteria.
