Well paid,
happy supply
teachers, not a
myth anymore.


Teacherise is a teacher-made mobile
app that connects British schools
and supply teachers directly, in a fair
and inexpensive way. Find out more.


The way
to a fair

What makes a
supply teacher’s day?

  • Being paid fairly, in line with the qualified teachers’ pay scales
  • Not being pressed to take on a job that’s unacceptable
  • Receiving information about the assignment
  • Knowing they could apply for a full-time job, without anyone asking the school for mind-changing, hefty introductory fees

What makes a
head teacher’s day?

  • Quickly and easily finding suitable teachers
  • Being able to pay them well, so they stay engaged
  • Hire whomever they want without paying finder fees

Teacherise is here to make a supply teacher’s and a head teacher’s day, every day. We connect them directly through our automated, unbiased app. This saves money and time, which translate into better pay for the teacher, more money left in school budgets, time and information to do a better job, and a better match between stakeholders. Moreover, teacher-school relationships can become permanent without us charging anything for it.

So, teachers, rise! (Indeed, this
is where our name comes from).
We’re here to make your day!

Supply teacher and
Teacherise co-founder:

We are a ”by teachers, for teachers” recruitment service, with a strong social focus. Our service is a functional solution to a dysfunctional system, to the benefit of everyone involved (teachers, schools, and students).

The development and success of new business models such as Uber and Airbnb has shown that the friction in service businesses can be radically reduced by connecting users and providers directly. I believe that Teacherise can do this for the important area of supply teaching provision. A better match leads to better rewards for all parties. More benefits for supply teachers, faster service for schools, and more appropriate teachers for the assignments.

Teacherise operates from University of Warwick’s Software Incubator, set up to help innovative digital businesses via the university’s technology transfer subsidiary, Warwick Ventures. The latter has created more than 90 spin-out companies and raised in excess of £75m worth of venture capital for them, successfully transforming world-leading research into commercial products.
The technical platform powering Teacherise is also provided as a service for local education authorities and unions that want to independently manage their own supply teacher pool via the Government's Digital Marketplace (GCloud 9).

”The average daily charge to schools by a supply agency for a teacher can be as much as £100 higher than the actual daily pay rate for that teacher. This goes into the agency’s coffers and out of the education sector.” — National Union of Teachers

”Spending on supply teachers – who are called in to cover in the absence of a member of staff – has gone up by almost £300m over two years, with the average amount spent by academies and free schools rising by 42% in a single year.” — The Guardian
