SupplyWell Vs Agencies

It's time to make the switch to SupplyWell - you’ve so much to gain and so little to lose. 

The world has moved on – we’re leaving the fumes of petrol guzzling engines behind in favour of sleek efficient electric cars. Why stay trapped in these outdated agencies that take advantage of processes that are unnecessarily draining money from schools and educators alike?

Bottom line  – there is no reason other than ‘it’s what we’ve always done’.

What is SupplyWell if not an agency? It’s the alternative.

SupplyWell is the alternative to outdated agencies. Agencies who are purely in the game of placing bums on seats at a premium cost to schools, without paying educators what they deserve.

Same same but radically different 

Yes, we provide schools with teachers* but that’s almost all we have in common with teaching agencies. We’re not here to bash agencies (honest!) but we ARE here to say loudly and proudly that it’s not what we are, and it’s time for change.

SupplyWell is creating a fairer future for educators – It’s time to make the switch!

Check out the ways we’re so very different to agencies and why you should make the switch to SupplyWell:


They say money can’t buy you happiness, but being broke can’t buy you anything! We value our educators and make sure you are paid what you deserve. SupplyWell is a tech-driven supply solution created as an answer to the traditional agency models. A solution to agencies that take advantage of both schools and teachers, perpetuating a drain on school funds and supply-teacher income.
