Help for Schools

One of your teachers has called in sick and you’ve got an hour to find a relief teacher. Rather than calling the handful of names on your list, finding them all unavailable, and having to find an ineffective workaround, why not simply access a real-time database of relief teachers and solve your problem

within minutes?

It really is that simple.

With Professional Teaching Solutions, you can even choose from specialist teachers, edit bookings, approve timesheets, and flag your favourite relief teachers and support staff. You can book teachers at the click of a button for that day, or book them months in advance.

All of which makes managing your relief a super simple process.

Jobs for relief teachers

It can be tricky, being a relief teacher. Maybe you’re still new to teaching and haven’t built relationships with local schools yet, maybe you only want to worka couple of days a week (and remain undisturbed by 7am phone calls on your days off), maybe it’s a pain managing paperwork for so many employers.

It’s for these reasons, and many more, Professional Teaching Solutions was developed. Designed to take the hassle out of finding work, it allows you to create and maintain an up-to-the-minute profile on our cloud database, pick your availability and specialist areas, and be notified immediately of any positions that will suit you.

You can sleep easy at night, knowing you don’t have to stress about what the next morning will bring and you’re increasing your job opportunities at brilliant schools without doing a thing.

Sue and Jodie are very welcoming and helpful in providing great schools and give great advice and resources such as professional development to help develop who you are as a teacher as well as your skills while still doing casual teaching. I wouldn’t do casual teaching any other way


Casual Relief Teacher

Jodie Abbott | Professional Teaching Solutions

I’m Jodie, a teacher who understands all too well the struggle of matching schools with high quality relief teachers. With the support of my right-hand-woman, I developed a cloud-based system to overcome all the hurdles involved in the process and streamline the entire lot.

Working with Professional Teaching Solutions is almost as good as finding the coffee machine in your new relief job comes with your favourite beans, already ground. We’re honest, transparent, and because our system does all the hard work for us, relaxed!

We know everyone involved in finding and filling positions for relief teachers, support staff, and longer placements is dedicated to doing a great job for the most important part of the whole equation – the students.

That’s why we’ve worked so hard to ensure it all happens as simply as possible.

How it works

No one needs more paperwork,

so once all the details are entered into our cloud-based software, you’re good to go!

We believe the students benefit,

when the fit between schools and teachers is just right. So, once you’ve registered, you’ll meet with our team over Zoom for an induction.

No one needs more paperwork,

schools can immediately, from anywhere, login and see the list of relief teachers available and teachers can be sure they’re only being put forward for the kind of relief jobs they want and on the dates they’re available.

This means teachers get real-time, access-from-anywhere notifications about new positions and schools can skip the ring around!

No one needs more paperwork,

All certifications are maintained and managed, timesheets are all online in our portal, and our system can be accessed by both schools and teachers on their own devices.
