UK - DfE publishes AWR guidance for supply teachers

03 August 2011

The Department for Education (DfE) has released Agency Workers Regulation (AWR) guidance on supply teachers. The guidance addresses issues surrounding the hirer, supply teacher pay scales and holiday pay.   

John Dunn, Chair of Education at the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC), commented "we welcome DfE's decision to recognise the specific challenges faced by the education sector in implementing AWR."

"It is important that agencies understand that whilst the guidance provides advice as to how AWR should be implemented, it is not legally binding. This underlines the need for agencies to communicate with their clients to understand respective structures, roles and responsibilities."
