Jan. 23, 2012 - PRLog -- The Association of Recruitment Consultancies has welcomed the decision by the REC not to include a prohibition on supply teacher agencies from using the ‘professions’ exemption within the Agency Workers Regulations.

Adrian Marlowe, chairman of the ARC, said “Having pursued the issue with both the Department for Education and the REC for a number of months, the volte face indicates that common sense and fairness has prevailed. Agencies and teachers must be allowed to operate in accordance with the law without additional and unnecessary restrictions being imposed.”

“The REC/DfE proposal would effectively have barred education agencies from operating if they relied upon the profession exclusion. This is particularly good news for those more senior supply teachers who may have lost their jobs because schools would have been forced to pay scale rate under the teachers pay conditions. It restores the freedom of choice for schools, teachers and agencies alike.”
