NSW Department of Education and ClassCover

NSW public schools can access ClassCover for free

"As a principal, I have been very pleased with the use of ClassCover for our school. It is so convenient to have my current list of casuals available online at any time. I particularly like the fact that it is so easy to use via the app as well. "
North Ryde Public School

ClassCover has partnered with the NSW Department of Education to provide the casual teacher resourcing solution for NSW public schools

NSW public schools can get free access to the ClassCover booking platform, taking the headache out of booking and managing their casual teachers. 

The ClassCover platform replaced the centre approach known as Casual.Direct in 2018 and continues to provide free access to NSW public schools. We are proud to be recognised and trusted by the NSW Department of Education as a fitting choice for NSW schools.
