Sussex Teachers, previously known as PBR Group, are the leading local independent supply teaching agency service in Brighton & Hove and Sussex. Set up in 2007, Sussex Teachers was born out of a frustration from the service being provided by the large corporate supply teaching agencies to the schools of Sussex.  We felt strongly that the supply teaching services available could be improved upon by offering a more personal approach and not one bound by targets and year on year growth. Every school is assigned one point of contact at Sussex teachers and our experienced consultants have a proven track record in their specialist sector.

We set out to offer a reliable and cost effective supply teaching service for local Sussex schools, teachers and support staff. We are not backed by any shareholders and thus prefer instead to be accountable to the local schools, teachers and county councils. The many schools who currently use our service have seen these benefits and the savings to their budgets it can bring.  

Our teachers and teaching assistants are vetted in accordance to the Department of Education and REC guidelines. We therefore request and verify the following documents and interview everyone face to face:

  • Enhanced DBS disclosure
  • Prohibition from teaching list
  • Identity Checked
  • Qualifications
  • Professional references
  • Career History
  • Medical declaration
  • Overseas police clearance
  • Visa/Work permit
  • 3 month gap in teaching
