Thrives Education places Supply Teachers and Teaching Assistants across Gloucestershire, Wiltshire ,Herefordshire and Worcestershire schools.


Formed by Ellis Jackson (a cheesy recruiter) and his wife Jen (a qualified teacher) back in 2020, Thrive Education recognised the need for a new supply teaching agency in Gloucestershire that could provide a superior service to those agencies already working within the region.

Their vision was to deliver a simple, transparent and fair staffing solution to schools and teachers alike. They recognised how crucial it was to take the time to talk to schools in a detailed way in order to gain a proper understanding of each setting’s unique characteristics, values, challenges, priorities and needs. This understanding is believed to be the bedrock of creating successful staffing solutions. The quality of supply teaching delivered by Thrive Education’s candidate base is unrivalled and we ensure we match your setting with the most suitable teaching professional.

Thrive Education is a independent supply agency on an upwards trajectory. With a cohesive team based in Barnwood Point, Gloucester, Thrive Education service all of Gloucestershire including Gloucester, Cheltenham, Cirencester, The Forest of Dean, South Gloucestershire, The Cotswolds, Tewkesbury, Stroud, Dursley and all the surrounding villages.

We don’t only offer supply teachers to schools, we also provide senior leaders, teaching assistants, tutors, SEN/SEMH specialists, Mid-day supervisors, Business Managers and early years practitioners all across Gloucestershire. Thrives’ key focus is to establish and maintain a genuine partnership between the settings that use it and the teaching staff it places. This approach benefits both the schools and the Thrive teachers as assignments are always carefully matched and well thought out; after all no one gains from incompatible placements, least of all the pupils. The quality of supply teachers available from Thrive Education is of the highest standard.
