ESP is a great way to transition to a permanent school position for outstanding NQTs and experienced teachers who want to broaden their teaching experience and, unlike commercially motivated agencies, has no financial barriers to schools for offering contracts to any of our teachers – there are no transfer fees for any permanent positions secured through ESP.


• ESP is supported by schools as the preferred choice for their supply needs
• Excellent rates of pay
• A host of free CPD opportunities available to you, locally, in our wide-ranging professional development programme
• A well-established route into permanent contracts with schools, without the burden of “finders” fees
• A service set up for local schools, with their interests and staffing at the heart of our not-for-profit operation
• Bookings agreed through personal contact, talking to familiar colleagues to discuss our schools’ requirements
• Experienced colleagues here in the office will deal with bookings – and they know all of the schools’ administrators and Headteachers personally

You will be required to:
• Be confident in delivering the curriculum
• Have a flexible approach to teaching
• Hold Qualified Teacher Status – proof of qualification is required
• Be reliable and committed
• Provide suitable references

Our excellent connections to Exeter’s schools means that we can find you a vacancy swiftly and within a teaching environment that you’ll love.


“ESP offers a friendly and professional service. I have tried several other supply agencies in the past and have found ESP to be highly reliable and efficient. Staff are friendly and reliable and always on hand to answer questions, no matter how small. I’d recommend ESP without hesitation!”

“ESP really try to get to know you as an individual and match you with schools where you are comfortable. By receiving bookings the day before I feel I have the right balance between a job I love and my family commitments.”

“Working with ESP gives me flexibility and control over my working life, which is exactly what I need.”

“I would strongly recommend working with Exeter Supply Partnership. They are a fantastic, supportive and extremely efficient agency to work for. As a Primary teacher returning to work after several years caring for my young family I have found all staff at Exeter Supply Partnership to be positive and encouraging every step of the way.”
