You will also be able to access a school directory, which will provide you with information on the schools we work with in Essex and the surrounding counties.

My Calendar of Teaching Placements

If you are an active teacher you will find a calendar on your homepage displaying the schools you are scheduled to work at. Further information about a particular teaching post can be viewed by clicking on the teaching placement on the calendar. Please also use this calendar to notify us of days that you are not available for teaching posts. Simply click on a day and confirm that you will not be available for supply cover on the popup box.
