This is the second four year term we have been named as a supplier on the Supply Teachers framework agreement and it shows our commitment to safeguarding, compliance and transparent pricing for schools.
What is the Crown Commercial Service?
The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services.
In 2019/20, CCS helped the public sector to achieve commercial benefits worth over £1bn - supporting world-class public services that offer best value for taxpayers.
What is the CCS Supply Teacher and Temporary Staff Agreement?
The supply teachers and temporary staff agreement can be used to recruit all temporary and fixed-term teaching and non-teaching staff for UK schools, colleges and education establishments although it is not available to independent schools. The agreement runs for 2 years and may be extended for 2 further one-year terms.
Being a supplier of this framework means Flourish Education has been audited and accredited to show we have best practice standards in education recruitment and that all candidates are screened to Department For Education (DfE) Keeping Children Safe in Education standards.
