​The education sector faces unprecedented challenges to continue to provide high quality teaching against the backdrop of austerity measures, tighter budgets and uncertain economic conditions.

Comensura is ideally placed to help the sector meet such challenges, with a service that combines excellent fulfilment results with superb management tools and information.

Comensura’s approach brings schools together to procure supply teachers in collaboration, through either a cluster of schools or via a local authority. This means that schools have total visibility of supplier usage and control of spend, and an ability to leverage total spend to gain greater cost efficiency from suppliers. The process we use also allows the vetting of teachers and the safeguarding of children with no compromise on achieving timely fulfilment of vacancies.
We are especially focused on enabling schools to obtain supply cover for an immediate start to cover unplanned absence, or to plan for a longer-term placement to cover a teaching vacancy, without the overly complicated and time consuming administration that is usually otherwise involved. Our service also lets schools avoid the problem of having to fend off sales calls from prospective suppliers.
