Help us provide every school in London FREE advertising on a new national job board for teachers.
SupplyTeach is a new online job board for teachers that is looking to make a real impact on schools by providing a national service at a fraction of the cost, however, what we really want to be able to do is offer this service to schools for FREE. Other national education job boards charge as much as £700 to advertise a single vacancy, which is astonishing when we think about the current recruitment and budget crisis affecting schools. Think about that for a moment, there are around 30,000 teacher vacancies a year, meaning even half that amount would equate to over £10 Million spent on advertising, if they could afford that service. Thats far too much, but schools do deserve a service such as this in order to recruit. Teachers too should have a job board that ALL schools can use, not just the few that can afford it, to easily see the opportunities available to them.
This crowdfunding campaign is to raise enough money to be able to offer every school in London their first 12 months free, and possbily the whole of the UK should we manage to reach the stretch target. Our first target though is to raise £29,900, meaning we are looking for just £20 per school for the year, allowing unlimited job advertising. The money raised will go towards marketing costs and letting teachers know who we are and where they can find the job they are looking for. Currently, to make this sustainable, we are looking at charging schools just £30 a year at the end of the first 12 months which is would still save schools a considerable amount of money, although we will continue to look for a way to continue a free service.
SupplyTeach currently advertises permanent teaching positions from agencies, but rolling this out to schools at such a low cost is difficult due to the number of them. It therefore costs us money to do this, as well as advertise and promote the website to the schools and teachers.
You donations will make a real difference to schools so please take a closer look, inform your local school and help us to achieve our target.
