When you receive a supply cover job notification open the link in your email or text message, log in and you'll see the job card. 

Schools can also post Permanent and Fixed Term roles through the platform. See here for more info on how to respond to those job types.

From the job card, you can view directions and travel time to the school at the tap of a button, using our Google Maps integration. 

To apply or decline the invitation, you must then view the details of the job. The Apply/Decline option is presented once you've clicked 'View Details'.

The school will receive and review applications, and will receive your contact details. If they decide to offer you the job, you will receive another email and text saying so. You'll then need to log in and Accept the offer.

***By accepting a job offer, you are entering into a contract with the school.***

And that's it! If you've been successfully booked, make sure you arrive on time and bring your DBS and ID.


Once a job has been accepted, it is imperative that you get to the school on time. Cancelling a booking once you have agreed to a job is permitted only in extreme circumstances of ill health, bereavement etc. If you need to cancel, you must get in touch with the school using the contact details they have provided on the job description and let them know that you are unable to fulfil the role. This allows them to plan alternative cover provision. 

Furthermore, you will need to have a debrief conversation with one of the Teacher Booker team to ascertain the reasons for cancellation. Teacher Booker will then decide how to proceed, and may consider suspending your account. One of the values we require from teachers using the app is reliability and this procedure helps us ensure this. Please refer to the terms and conditions of use for more information.
