Supply workers - schools and early years settings

Information about working with us

We have a list of supply workers who provide short-term, temporary cover in schools and early years settings.

Supply workers are engaged as casual workers because they work on an irregular basis to meet fluctuating demands for work; there’s no mutuality of obligation, so we don’t have to offer you work, and as a supply worker you’re not obliged to accept the work offered.

Our goal is for every learner to experience the best teaching and learning in all of our schools, and the highest quality of early learning and childcare for all children in all our settings, and we hope that you'll play a part in helping us achieve this.

Edinburgh Learns (our strategy to achieve excellence and equity) provides guidance to help you in every aspect of your work. You’ll find information and examples of good practice on everything from teaching and learning, to the curriculum and inclusion.
