    About us


    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 a massive commission and are terribly 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 pull hundreds of millions of waste out of the education system and have a huge positive impact on teachers and schools.


    We are a Social Enterprise that is well-funded by high-profile investors. We have had

    significant early traction, and are led by start-up veterans behind two of London's most

    prominent tech companies.
