Welcome to our teachers page! Whether you are an experienced supply teacher or this is your first step into a new world, below is some information on what we can offer and how to register with Key Education.

We service schools and education establishments throughout East Anglia and can offer you daily supply, short term and long term positions. Supply work is flexible to suit your needs, so if you can only work part days or you need to have notice that’s not a problem!

You will be offered an interview in Norwich, Ipswich or Haverhill – other venues by arrangement


The registration meeting will last around 45 minutes so we can discuss your requirements in depth and explain how we work


Once you are cleared to work one of our team will call you with the good news!


Supply gives you the flexibility for a home/work life balance so whether you are raising a family, retired, running your own business, have a part time contract elsewhere we can fit in around your other commitments – you choose where you work and when you work! Whilst the work is set, you are expected to teach to the best of your ability in the lessons you are covering, a baby sitter is not an option for the school!


If you are looking to return to the UK or have been working abroad for a period of 6 months or more, there will be a number of documents you will need to provide; the most important one is an overseas police check which is easier to obtain BEFORE you return to the UK. Whilst we need to meet you face-to-face, if you contact us before your return we can guide you through the process.


Don’t panic, it’s like riding a bike! :o)

Let us know what your situation is and we will work with you to ease you back in to teaching. If you wish to have a shadow day with an experienced Key Teacher, we can arrange this for you.


A long term role allows you to build relationships with pupils and staff and become part of the team. However you will be expected to do the role of a permanent member of staff, which may includes aspects such as:- PPA, parents evening, reports if applicable, school trips and staff meetings.



Don’t just take our word for it, see what our teachers have to say!

I want, however, to take the opportunity to thank you all for the care I received at all times for I never felt so well looked after by a company in my entire life (and I have been around!). You are what I call a great group of professionals and other companies could learn a lot from you.

Key Education’s approach is professional and honest; they are clued-in to the sector and are genuinely interested in our experiences as employees, offering support when required. They consistently provide appropriate work when it is available and I have recommended to a number of colleagues that should they ever need the flexibility of supply work, they would not be disappointed by the service Key Education delivers.

Thanks for supporting me when I had a bad day, you were very supportive and non critical. You should congratulate yourselves on your professional friendly and personal service.

The attitude and commitment of all the staff at Key Education is, at all times, professional, warm, perceptive, reliable, honest, and supportive. In addition, the accuracy displayed in all administrative matters is hugely reassuring especially given the nature of the work I undertake.

Key Education provide a stable and secure service that allows me to feel confident about the assignments that I undertake, safe in the knowledge that I am supported in my professional life and a valued member of their team. There is always a member of staff available to deal with any queries, to provide a sounding board if required and as a first base for any information that I seek. Backup and background information is always forthcoming and follow-up, whether positive or negative, proactively sort. All issues raised with Key Education are dealt with promptly and with a high level of competence.
