UK schools spend well over £2bn per year on covering short-term absences with supply teachers. The current model is exclusively reliant on agencies that charge massive commissions and are extremely inefficient (everything is paper and phone-call based). We are consolidating this analogue, fragmented, and inefficient marketplace onto a digital platform. Think Uber for supply teachers. In the process, we'll put hundreds of millions of pounds back in the education system and have a huge positive impact on teachers and schools.
We're backed by high-profile investors (including senior education figures) and led by startup veterans behind two of London's most prominent tech companies.
