RMTA has discussed the issues currently faced by supply teaching agencies across the country particularly agencies in London. The greatest challenge is the lack of outstanding supply teachers.
Agencies have said that there has always been difficulties securing long term supply teaching staff for school vacancies but right now it is proving extremely difficult.
Wouldn’t it be fantastic if agencies had the capacity to fill all of their schools vacancies? Advertising and Marketing are the first things to get cut when budgets are tight, however, the one thing that can change a negative to a positive is advertising and marketing. It can secure supply staff for you and give your agency a much needed presence where it counts.
If your agency has something to say that is relevant in this current climate it is more beneficial to get your presence felt now then in better times. RMTA aims to help agencies secure supply staff by promotion and presence and by offering a fair advertising policy.
