School Updatedge Testimonials

“It’s a much easier way to book available supply staff, to see who is available and who isn’t.
When I call an agency, I give them the names of people I would like but seeing who is available is
much easier.”
“The teachers update their own calendars, and this gives us more freedom to pick. If there is a tricky

“Teachers often come back quicker than via the supply agency other than when they are teaching.”
“It so quick, nice and easy to get things booked.”
“If there is a lag and sometimes there is, I leave it a little while and can come back. I’m not

“Using it day-to-day is much quicker especially if you remember the teacher you had last time and

“I don’t need to call anybody to ring on my behalf to see if those people are available, I just do it
myself using the app.”
“It’s really easy when the teacher is in the school already, I send them an offer, the teachers looks at
their mobile app during the break and applies. I just confirm to the teacher and the agency and it’s
done, all online.”
