The Cornwall Association of Primary Heads (CAPH) supports school leaders and the wider school community across Cornwall. The community interest company, owned by schools, aims to be a vehicle for improvement and innovation for education in Cornwall.
CAPH works with preferred partners to provide alternative, effective and value for money services for members.It has just signed a multiple-year agreement with Opus Education as its exclusive preferred partner for supply provision and permanent recruitment for all CAPH member schools throughout Cornwall.
An exciting new partnership
Opus was created for teachers, by teachers as an education support service that approaches recruitment and training in a different way. Opus pays its candidates fairly and charges schools fairly, with over 80% of charge rates going to candidates.
Opus is a safeguarding specialist - all candidates are strictly vetted. All consultants are 'safer recruitment' trained and all candidates complete level 2 safeguarding training. Schools can access candidate information and a full vetting pack at any time.
This approach fits well with CAPH’s aim as a community interest company to positively influence the education, health and care of children in Cornwall.
Opus offers three main services:
Opus Supply – offering short and medium-term staffing solutions for schools, colleges and nurseries, covering a range of roles: primary teachers; secondary teachers; HLTAs; TAs; SEN specialists; administration staff; catering assistants; lunchtime supervisors and lecturers and assessors.
Opus Permanent – a free service for schools in Cornwall and Devon, advertising your vacancies locally and nationally. This service saves schools significant time and they do not charge any transfer fees at the end of the temporary period.
Opus Training – offering a range of school support services from pre-OFSTED health checks to behaviour management training to teacher mentoring, and everything in between.

Opus is seeking education staff throughout the whole of Cornwall to join its bank of staff for temporary and permanent job roles. Training, support and guidance are provided and onboarding is quick and free.
