A SUP­PLY teacher agency is ex­pand­ing into Hal­ton.

SIL Sup­ply had pre­vi­ously fo­cused its work in Liver­pool, but said it can now con­duct busi­ness with schools in Run­corn and Widnes af­ter re­ceiv­ing ac­cred­i­ta­tion by The Re­cruit­ment And Em­ploy­ment Con­fed­er­a­tion (REC) ac­cred­i­ta­tion.

A spokes­woman for the firm said it was re­cently awarded Au­dited Ed­u­ca­tion Sta­tus by the REC, which only a small pro­por­tion of REC ed­u­ca­tion mem­bers achieve.

She added that the com­pany is proud to have stayed well clear of ‘rogue’ sup­ply teacher agen­cies that charge ex­ces­sive fees, and are now sub­ject to plans for a Govern­ment crack­down an­nounced ear­lier this year.

Paul Gib­son, of SIL Sup­ply, said: “We are proud of plac­ing the right staff with the right schools.

“Whether it’s a teacher or ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fi­cer, we’re driven by the de­sire to sup­port the well-be­ing of the wider school com­mu­nity and make a dif­fer­ence to the lives of chil­dren.

“Our REC au­dited sta­tus award sup­ports our vi­sion to be the most trusted, re­li­able sup­ply agency in the re­gion and of­fer a vi­able so­lu­tion for ed­u­ca­tional pro­fes­sion­als look­ing for a flex­i­ble work-life bal­ance.

He added: “Sup­ply agen­cies pro­vide a cru­cial ser­vice to schools and we’re proud to play our part in help­ing lo­cal schools find the tal­ented staff they need.” ●
