Airsupply only exists to get a better deal for supply teachers. Conceived as an idea to get a better balance in teacher recruitment and remove the control and commissions of agencies, we were backed by The Guardian, Founders Factory and more recently Twinkl, to ensure that teachers are paid more and schools save money. We strive tirelessly to maintain transparency and to provide the tools and technologies to transform supply teaching and put teachers in control of their work. Creating the 'win-win' for teachers and schools is possible and can make supply teaching the rewarding career it should be.
Everything aligned to bring about a step change for teachers looking to set their own pay rates, and get a fairer deal in nearby schools they wanted to work in. Schools also win using the Airsupply platform in terms of time efficiencies and supply cost savings too. Both teachers and schools win with Airsupply.
Airsupply cuts down on admin, waste and overhead by leveraging technology to provide a simple-to-use platform for schools and teachers to coordinate supply teaching work. Everyone wins, the teachers and the schools. Ultimately this positively impacts the whole education sector.
Besides giving teachers choice, control and better pay, Airsupply continues to evolve and provide even more for our teachers and schools. Airsupply also provides health and well-being benefits, alongside access to retail discounts and an inclusive platform to share ideas.
Teachers choose to teach supply for various reasons - extra income in retirement, a gap filler until a permanent role becomes available, or increasingly commonly, choosing a more flexible lifestyle. We understand those choices and the values that motivate us to teach. Just like our teachers, we find ways to make a difference.
We're working tirelessly to recruit schools onto the Airsupply platform to create more choices for Airsupply teachers. We aim to continue to deliver our mission to provide fairer, better paid supply teaching work, alongside supporting our teachers wellbeing.
