Supply perm fees

Hannah W made this Freedom of Information request to Rhondda Cynon Taff Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Rhondda Cynon Taff Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Rhondda Cynon Taff Council,

There has been a lot of controversy in the news lately regarding supply agencies charging schools finders fees/perm fees. If an agency introduces a teacher to a school, and the school then take that teacher on contract, the agency has a right to charge the school a fee for this.

It seems to happen a lot in England, but not so much in Wales. Could you please provide me with a breakdown as to how much the schools in the borough have spent on these perm/finders fees in the last academic year (if at all). I am referring specifically to perm fees here and not general agency supply spend.

Yours faithfully,

Hannah W
