Agencies also needed to comply with the Cyber Security Standards to reduce the risk of personal data being compromised.
PRICES AND AGENCIES MARGIN
Schools can select agencies based on their distance from the school and margin charged. Margin under the framework is purely based on the gross pay to the supply teachers. Schools can select agencies via the “Agency Selection Tool”. LAM EDUCATION pays teachers fairly and we will continue to do this.
