Teaching Vacancies UK Wide

Ever fancied teaching just your specialist subject in a primary setting?


A lot of our teachers come from a primary school background and simply do not want to teach the entire curriculum and want to focus only on their specific subject. Some of our teachers come from a secondary background and want to convert their skills to primary, which we train them to do. Alternatively, our staff come from a professional industry background e.g. former athletes, West End stars, former professional dancers, actors, professional musicians etc.

To see our current vacancies, please see our Indeed Careers Page

Please register below to become part of our PPA Teacher Database. You must have experience teaching children, be qualified to degree level or equivalent in your subject area, or have QTS (PGCE qualification). Please note that your registration will not be accepted if you do not attach a CV or if you leave any required field blank (*).

Your details will be stored in our Teacher Database and we will be in touch should a position arise in your area. A number of our teaching positions are part-time and we would therefore encourage teachers even with limited availability to register with us as we may have the perfect opportunity to suit you.

If you only want to be contacted for cover work (as and when it occurs), please complete the form and specify “Cover Teacher”.

For more information, please call Libby Batchelor on 01530 566750 or email .

Comments from staff members congratulating Leah Moore – Languages coordinator on winning employee of the year:


"Leah is absolutely great! So confident in what she does and so emphatetic I couldn't think of anyone else winning this award! From the very begining of my collaboration with PPA cover she's been absolutely great, always helpful and resourceful. Unfortunately, I did have to call her sometimes out of the office time and she's been absolutely there for me, always showing support and profesionalism. I would like to congratulate her on this award and wish her good luck in all her future plans!"

“Congratulations Leah! I heard that you have been voted, by all of your colleagues at HQ, for Employee of the Year! I am not surprised at all. As I mentioned to you in my latest e-mail, you have really worked very hard and given us so much support as a PPA Teacher at Ravensthorpe Primary School, thank you so much!
It takes special dedication and perseverance to get through such demanding work, especially when working with a foreign teacher with a funny accent like me! You have been so patient, and I really appreciate it.
Your achievement is an example to us all.
All the best to you. Keep in touch and looking forward to working with you again!”

“Leah has been a very inspiring and supportive manager, whenever I have needed to discuss work related issues she was always there to help".

Monday, July 06, 2020

2020 has seen unprecedented times that we, as a company, never thought we would find ourselves in. We would like to express our gratitude to our:

  • Amazing clients

Working in the public sector can be very challenging at times and we understand that for schools, it is difficult to appreciate the way that our business works. Thanks to the support of our schools and the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, we managed to waive over £300,000 of invoices to schools. This left us in a very difficult situation as we still have our HQ premises mortgage, bills to cover and suppliers that unfortunately have had to charge us regardless of the situation. We have lost approximately 10 schools for 2020-2021 due to COVID-19 and the budget cuts their schools have faced. We are very hopeful that these schools will return to us once they are open in September and have received funding support from the government.

  • Wonderful staff

Given one days notice that all schools in the UK would close, our staff had to frantically cancel over 90 PPA sessions daily, indefinitely. Throughout the peak of the crisis, we have had to work night and day to ensure the decisions we were making were going to have a minimal impact on our regular services once schools resumed. Our staff have taken the time to organise their work, to write new lesson plans for children and new schemes of work and we couldn’t be more grateful of their support. This truly shows their passion for the education sector and above all their love for children and learning!

  • Suppliers

To those suppliers who have been flexible with us during these unprecedented times, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Tsunami Computers Leicester, Lex AutoLease, WaterPlus and many more have allowed us to pause or reduce our monthly payments whilst we have received no income. This has made the difference between us surviving and not surviving the crisis. 

Going forwards, we will be rebuilding our business back up to where we were and support from schools in outsourcing their PPA to us to help us rebuild is greatly appreciated. We understand PPA time is a legal requirement for all teachers and the majority of the subjects that we cover are compulsory so if you are struggling to cover PPA time, would like to explore a new method of covering a compulsory subject such as MFL or ICT, please allow us to provide your school with a FREE trial and show you why you should choose us and support our small business.

We would like to send our well wishes to all small businesses both who have survived the crisis and who unfortunately have closed their doors. If you have managed to survive like us, please dig deep and find that energy to push forwards once more to rebuild your business rather than give up. The UK needs small businesses and even more so now with unemployment on the rise. It will be worth it, we promise!
