During the Covid-19 pandemic, the Union has written to those agencies it is aware of to gather intelligence and understand the position each agency has taken in respect of the furlough of hard-working and dedicated supply teachers following the announcement of the closure of schools from January 2021 to the overwhelming majority of staff and pupils in England and Wales.

To the best of the Union’s knowledge, this list represents those agencies and/or umbrella companies that have responded to the NASUWT to confirm the furlough of supply teachers under the CJRS, including any additional criteria being used in order to make such decisions.

If you are aware of any agencies and/or umbrella companies that have agreed to furlough supply teachers that are not covered on the list, then please contact the Union so that we can update the list accordingly.
