The CPC's Temporary and Permanent Staffing framework can provide an easy procurement solution for schools, colleges and education establishments looking to recruit a variety of academic and support staff throughout the year. It covers all of your recruitment requirements for procuring teaching staff including supply teachers, support staff, administration staff and non-teaching staff, whether you need support on a full time, temporary or contract basis.

This staff recruitment framework offers a compliant route to market and is split into 16 lots consisting of separate academic staff lots for FE/HE and schools/academies, regional lots for support staff and a Master Vendor lot.

What is a Master Vendor?

A Master Vendor model is where the provider assumes full responsibility for the staffing provision. Direct sourcing and 2nd tier suppliers are used to achieve this provision, which can be used to fulfil both permanent and temporary recruitment requirements. The Master Vendor will also engage with your incumbent suppliers where required.
