Do you have something you want to announce to your teachers on ClassCover? You can now broadcast messages to all your teachers at once in bulk, filter and choose a selected group or communicate to just one teacher.
The messages you send out will be sent as an email, straight to the teacher’s inbox. The email will state that the message has come from your school and will refer to the sender’s name.
You can segment who you choose to send messages to by filtering teachers by name, star rating, active/inactive, tags, and teaching level. You can then select as a group and a bulk email to that segment.
What type of messages can you send?
Schools can write anything in messages. You have 280 characters to use in the message with the option to include a supporting link to send the receiver to either read more or simply have a link to support your message.
Some good uses for using this feature;
Please note: If a teacher replies to your message, it will go to our support. If you want your message to be replied to, note the email address you would like the teacher to continue their correspondence with in the message.
Are you sick of sending out booking requests into the void? By combining the new features available to you on My Teachers with Insights and ClassCover Jobs, you now have more options to clean and refresh your list with ease and in a more efficient way.
We've put together a handy guide to show you what you can now do with ClassCover to ensure a healthy teacher list, resulting in healthy booking outcomes.
Do you have something you want schools to know?
You can now post a teacher status update via your teacher profile and have it seen by schools you are attached to and schools who are looking to add or hire you.
The ‘teacher status update’ empowers teachers on the platform to share their voice and communicate to schools like never before.
Your teacher status update is 140 characters long and can be used as a way to let schools know you are on a block work, maternity leave or any type of leave or as a space to let schools know how far you are willing to travel or that you are open to full time opportunities.
The space is yours to use however you like!
For NSW Department of Education schools, you will notice a verification status on each teacher in your list and in Find Teachers. Teachers can see their current status under 'My Profile'.
The verification status is a new integration with the NSW Department of Education and is designed as a time saving tool for all NSW public schools who need to know teachers are accredited and approved to teach and have all of the mandatory training completed and logged on MyPL and e-Safety.
Permanent, temporary, block work and day to day casual positions in all types of schools in all parts of Australia and New Zealand. ClassCover is now offering schools a way to broadcast opportunities to thousands of teachers who use ClassCover and are local to the school to find the right talent.
It’s not just permanent and block work, but schools will also have the option to post for more casual teachers to be added to their ClassCover lists for when schools are actively looking to expand teacher pools. Schools can then auto add a teacher to their list who have applied in one click.
The ClassCover Jobs feature adds another layer of convenience for schools and opens up more work options for teachers.
Teachers will now have the option to be notified for jobs by both SMS and Push Notifications, giving 100% assurance that you will be alerted to opportunities.
Previously you could only choose to accept or decline a job by either SMS or Push Notifications and not by both simultaneously. While the majority of teachers experience no issues with their chosen means of notifications, there is a large enough group of teachers who do have issues which can be experienced for a variety of reasons (not set up properly, low internet or data coverage, low battery or multiple devices with ClassCover installed).
