Popular Questions

What are your costs?

Genie Education makes a small margin on providing your services to an agency.  Due to the irregular working pattern in the teaching sector, we ensure our margin is fair and proportional to the work you have completed in a week:

We do not make our margin if you are not working. 

As you would expect from any respectable employer there are no costs for joining or leaving our employment, and you are not tied in to an onerous contract as there is no minimum term of employment.

Please contact us on 01296 468 483 or info@orangegenie.com for specific information on the margin we make from invoicing the agencies you are registered with.

We pay our teachers and support staff weekly in arrears. The robust and clear processes we have in place with the supply teaching agencies we partner with ensures you will receive access to cleared funds by Friday following the week you have worked.  As an organisation, Genie Education are seen as a safe pair of hands by both teachers and supply teaching agencies.
