New: Teachers can now request to join a schools list in app

A quick run-through of this feature for teachers

Are you looking to be added to more school lists but want to be able to do that on ClassCover? Now you can and we’re really excited to open up more opportunities for teachers to connect with schools in-app without having to leave ClassCover.

Available on the mobile and web, you can filter schools near you by the distance you’re willing to travel and send requests at the click of a button. You can also click on each school and navigate to their new school profile which has high-level info, recent jobs posted, and more.

You have 10 requests you can send each week so spend them wisely. Each Monday your school request limit is reset back to 10.

This feature is called Find New Schools and is waiting for you to give it a whirl!

Go to Find New Schools now

💡 Heads up: schools have only received access to their new School Profiles just now, so give them a minute to fill them out.

A quick run-through of this feature for schools

Are you in need of more casual relief teachers to join your list? We have just released a major new feature on ClassCover that now allows teachers to request to join your list in-app. You can then review a list of pending teacher requests and choose to accept, decline, and even block.

You are able to view rich teacher profile information, as you would in Find New Teachers, and add them to your list in a click if they are suitable for your school.

Teachers are able to send out 10 requests a week and are only able to start sending requests once they’ve completed the majority of their profile which means mandatory information.

Teachers will be reviewing your new School Profile (more on that next) so make sure you have this filled out. Complete your School Profile

You can find this new feature on both the web and mobile version of ClassCover under ‘Teacher requests’

Go to Teacher Requests

💡 Good to know: Don’t want to receive Teacher Requests? You can hide your school from the list via your new School Profile. Simply toggle it off.

💡 Good to know: Teachers only have 10 requests they can send to school each week. Their requests refresh back to 10 each Monday.

New: School Profiles | Showcase your school and onboard your teachers

Introducing new School Profiles – a place where you can showcase your school to teachers looking to request to join your list (new feature) or apply for a job. It’s also a place where teachers on your list can see school announcements and onboarding documentation all in the one handy place.

Teachers not on your list will see:

  • School logo / crest
  • Link to your website
  • School overview
  • School size, type, gender, Principal, and best contacts
  • A map with the location of your school

Teachers who are on your school’s list will see all of the above plus:

  • Announcements
  • Onboarding documentation (link – for example a Google Drive folder)
  • Any additional information you would like to add

Your School Profile is ready for you to fill out and is easy to complete.

Head over to your new School Profile and set it up

New: Improved teacher calendar with a recurring availability updater

Your teacher calendar has just had a massive make-over, making it easier to update your availability in bulk, quick view your next booking and see high-level stats on how your month is tracking.

What’s new?

Recurring availability updater (web and mobile)

Need to update in bulk and in advance but don’t want to click on each day individually? We hear you! That’s why we’ve added in the recurring availability updater so you can update in advance. You can choose to update weekly, fortnightly have it repeat on certain days of the week, choose an end date or choose the number of occurrences.

The flexibility is what makes this tool so handy and easy to use.

This feature is now available on both web and mobile versions of ClassCover.

Availability Health Checker

This new handy tool will show you how many days you have left to set your availability on, whether that be available or unavailable. This tool is designed to make it easier for you to replace any pesky ‘hasn’t indicated’ days to an actual record of your availability on each day.

Quick view next booking and see high-level stats

Stay organised by seeing your next booking at a glance. You can also see high-level stats such as total days you are available and unavailable to work, total bookings each month, and hours booked.

🙌 Coming soon to your calendar…

You will soon be able to add external bookings to your calendar if you are booked by a school outside of ClassCover. This gives you the ability to use your ClassCover booking calendar as the one source of truth to keep you organised. This will save you from managing several calendars so you can be across what your month looks like. Stay tuned for this…

Check out your new calendar

New: School calendar improvements for ultimate efficiency

Your school calendar has just had a make-over. Not only have we improved the design, we’ve added in a list view on the side so you can see teacher bookings for each day selected at a glance.

You can also see high-level stats on the number of bookings you’ve logged and how many casual hours you’ve booked for the month.

👍 Coming soon to your calendar: Bulk delete recurring bookings

If you have booked in a teacher for block work on multiple dates through the pre-confirmed booking option, you will soon be able to bulk delete the series if you need to.

New: NSW accreditation reminders

NSW casual teachers will now get NESA accreditation reminders for both Maintaining Accreditation and Proficient Teacher Accreditation.

This feature is a direct integration with the NSW Department of Education, providing accurate data on when your accreditation is due.

Reminders are sent out in the following intervals:

  • Statement due in 6 months
  • Statement due in 3 months
  • Statement due in 1 month

We look forward to being able to assist NSW casual teachers with timely reminders and the next steps to assist with staying on top of accreditation.

New: Teachers can accept school invites in app + Schools can see pending invites

Teachers no longer have to keep an eye on their email for invites from schools. Teachers now have a place in-app on both the mobile and web versions to see a log of school invites which can then be accepted or declined.

Teachers can also send a reason for declining an invite from a school to join their list.

Teachers will also still receive the invite via email, however, this addition will mean an invite will never be missed or overlooked.

🙌 Teachers: Check out your recent school invites

For schools, you now have a place where you can see pending invites and have a historical log of what's been sent out.

🙌 Schools: Check out your pending teacher invites
