Fully flexible hours
Our mission at Primary PPA Cover is to provide specialist teachers to teach the subjects schools need most to raise the standard of the current provision in the school.
At Primary PPA Cover, we are firm believers that a good teacher can ignite a spark and instil a passion for a subject that a child didn’t know they had. Our job is to find this spark, and we do this by providing specialist teachers to schools for subjects they are not confident in, or would like support in teaching, whilst covering the PPA time teachers' need outside of the classroom.
Flexible working approach
At Primary PPA Cover, we are an employee-led organisation. We are passionate about being a flexible place to work, and regains that it is the future of work. We believe that offering completely flexible working hours, locations and conditions improves the well-being of our employees, resulting in amazing results in their careers. However, you're always welcome to visit our dog friendly offices!
We're incredibly flexible: we're open to part-time employees or job sharing, offer sabbaticals, enhanced parental leave, summer hours, unlimited annual leave, and so much more. Come join us – we're a great place to work!
Scoring against our flexibility index (1 = not at all flexible, 100 = couldn’t be more flexible, 51 is average) using a number of parameters to assess flexibility such as working from home, hours, frequency of travel, benefits, etc.
Scoring against our employee perception index (1 = not seen as flexible, 100 = couldn’t be happier with the flexibility, 51 is average) using a number of more emotional / perception based questions to understand whether employees feel supported and offered what they want. The areas we cover are work-life balance / managerial support / flexible benefits / working environment / and many others.

Primary PPA Cover have performed exceptionally well throughout their accreditation. In fact, it's two of the highest scores we've seen for a small-business. We're really looking forward to seeing them continue to provide a highly flexible working environment for their employees going forward. If any applicable roles come up, I would certainly recommend applying straight away so as not to miss out on the opportunity to work here.
