Axcis operates a 2-stage registration process. The first step is to register online. Once you have done that, your consultant will review your CV, discuss your situation with you on the phone and then complete a face to face registration interview. It is of vital importance that you provide the appropriate paperwork (you will be advised what to bring) so that we can offer you work placements as soon as possible. 
During your interview, you will also receive a candidate pack, which contains lots of useful, practical information to ensure you get the best from our service. If you are new to supply work, we also strongly recommend attending one of our Induction Seminars in order to be fully confident in what is expected of you and how to get the full benefit from working on a supply basis.  
 Axcis Education can offer you a number of different options when it comes to positions. 
Short-term placements
Schools require teaching assistants to cover courses, events, illness, etc. at short notice. This allows you to experience a wide variety and range of schools, and can be a great door opener for longer term work. Please be aware that many of these bookings are requested “on the day” by schools, so you should be ready to receive calls from 7am and be in a position to leave the house immediately on accepting a booking. 
Long-term placements
More longer term supply posts can last from half a term up to a year or more. This allows you to become a part of school life and a teaching assistant in this position will be expected to take on all the responsibilities of a permanent member of staff. These types of position will often become permanent placements for the right candidate should the nature of the vacancy allow for it.
Permanent placements
Schools will sometimes come to agencies with permanent vacancies and will recruit the right candidate straight from the agency. This happens less often than temp-to-perm placements, and usually takes place around the permanent recruitment calendar of the school.
