Affinity Workforce (AWS) proudly announces the renewal of its partnership with the Cabot Learning Federation (CLF). The collaboration aims to further support the Multi-Academy Trust’s staffing needs across its growing network of academies.



Cabot Learning Federation is renowned as a family of academies promoting educational excellence and serving a wide range of diverse communities across the vibrant South West of England. With a commitment to collaboration and growth, CLF’s provisions extend through the Five Counties Teaching School Alliance, including initiatives like the Boolean Maths Hub and the CLF School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) under the CLF Institute. CLF covers primary, secondary, alternative provision, post-16 and SEND across their wide range of academies.

We are delighted to continue our partnership with CLF following successfully re-tendering for the contract after already supporting the trust as their managed service provider for the previous 3 years. As a leading provider in this space, AWS continues to offer its expertise in managing temporary staff requirements for CLF’s academies. We oversee the complete cycle, from candidate sourcing to engaging with the temporary workforce, ensuring a seamless recruitment process for teaching and non-teaching roles.


Alex Champion, AWS Chief Operating Officer overseeing its Managed Service Provisions, said:


“We are absolutely delighted that CLF have chosen to extend our partnership for at least a further three years. This continued collaboration speaks volumes about our dedication to promoting strong and lasting relationships within the educational sphere. At AWS, our emphasis lies in cultivating transparent, value-driven partnerships. Our goal remains firm—to deliver exceptional staffing solutions that seamlessly align with and reflect the core values and mission of CLF.”

This renewed partnership underlines AWS’s position as a pioneering managed service provider in education recruitment. As an approved supplier on key Crown Commercial Services frameworks, AWS continues to set benchmarks in delivering transparent, fair, and efficient staffing solutions for educational institutions.


CLF welcomes educators and individuals interested in becoming part of their growing community, improving learning and growth for over 12,500 children and young people in the South West.
