"The LTA has successfully worked in partnership with schools since 2002, supplying short and long term staff. Working in conjunction with the Schools Forum as part of our procurement of a new provider, I am delighted that Reed have again been selected to run the LTA from this September. The LTA provides high quality staff appointed under stringent safeguarding and quality standards who have regular access to CPD. From September, the LTA aims to fulfil all schools' short term, long term and permanent recruitment needs, covering all teaching and support staff roles. In these tougher economic times the LTA provides a high quality service and represents good value for money for schools."
