Are you ready for a difficult but rewarding career?

Aspire Specialist Supply could be the start you are looking for.

The Aspire Specialist Supply Team is different to most supply companies as we are specialists in dealing with SEMH difficulties and have our own Independent Nurture Schools. We provide long term support to schools who require a member of supply who has been trained by a specialist organisation such as Aspire Behaviour Management.


As part of our team you will receive specialised training and support from our team of extensively experienced and qualified trainers.

This opportunity is not for everyone as you will be expected to deal with difficult behaviours in a calm and positive manner. For the right people this can be extremely rewarding and can lead to permanent positions.

You will undergo our training programme and be given the opportunity to shadow our experienced team members in schools, spend some time in our very special Independent Schools in Bolton and Burnley, and receive lots of training, including Safeguarding, Behaviour Management, De-escalation and Mental Health training.

The free training is approx. 2 weeks at one of our Independent Schools, but we will offer bespoke training timetables to meet individual circumstances if necessary.

Once training has been completed to a satisfactory standard, when available you will be allocated work as a Supply Teaching Assistant.

There is no pay whilst the candidate is completing training. The training is free of charge unless the candidate does not complete at least 10 Full Days of Supply Work for Aspire they will need to pay the cost of training at full market rate of £500.

Once training is complete, assignments will be paid at £9.10 per hour plus per hour holiday pay. 

As mentioned, we also have 2 of our own schools which require Supply Staff from time to time and you will be first in line for these roles.

All candidates will need to have some experience working with children.
