Supply staff systems training, contracts and rates

The Ealing schools supply staff service was created to ensure consistent and efficient recruitment for schools with a membership to the Ealing Learning Partnership. This replaces the preferred supplier list (PSL) which stopped at the end of July term.

The aim of the service is to create a central point of contact for all school recruitment needs, with fair and transparent pricing and consistent high compliance standards across all contract suppliers, in line with Keeping Children Safe in Education.

Systems training for schools

Sessions will cover:

  • Getting set up
  • How to create a shift
  • Viewing and using online calendar
  • Compliance and Vetting
  • Timesheets
  • Financial statements and MI
  • Long term booking management

Book via Ealing CPD online.

The service is due to go live from September, but all agreed rates will be honoured from now. Take a look at Reed Education's JoinedUp client guide.

Arrangements with current agency suppliers

We have identified a list of Ealing agency suppliers and we will be inviting all of them to an information event mid June 2021 and they will have the opportunity to apply to become part of our supply chain.

We would like you to continue to work with your current agencies and hope that many of them will move to our new supply chain and continue working with Ealing.
