Supply teaching agencies are the fifth emergency service, says Genie Education

Pras Desai, operations director at Genie Education, stated, "This statistic not only highlights the challenging and demanding nature of the teaching role, but also shows how important supply teaching agencies are to help keep our schools functioning.  It isn't uncommon to hear about schools phoning recruitment consultants at 5 am in the morning trying to urgently find a replacement.
