Introducing a Recrutiment Company For Schools and Teachers...Run By Teachers

Educate UK Ltd is different from the majority of educational recruitment companies out there. Firstly, we are run by teachers. This gives us a unique understanding of not only what makes a good teacher but also what you as a school are looking for in a teacher.

Secondly, we have access to candidates who are hungrier than most. The candidates we take on are not only highly skilled, qualified and experienced teachers, they are carefully vetted by us to ensure that they are of the right character to deal with the whole process of leaving their home town, family and friends and move to another city to continue their careers.

Rest assured that you will never be presented with a candidate who has not personally been vetted by myself. I have been in the same situation many of my candidates find themselves in. I have taught at secondary level both in London and Glasgow and so have a complete understanding of what it takes to make such a move both on a career and personal level.

Finally, and perhaps more importantly, what really separates Educate from the plethora of other agencies is that we are providing candidates who are in it for the long haul. They are not simply looking for work for a year. They are only interested in career progression and are prepared to leave home to prove it.

A new approach to educational recruitment

Having not spoken to you before, I am unaware of your previous experiences in dealing with recruitment agencies. Perhaps you have been sent candidates who have not been what you were looking for? Perhaps they were qualified but were maybe travelling from abroad and so not in it for the long-term?

If this is the case I understand your frustration. My research has demonstrated that this is a major issue with schools today. They regularly get candidates who, whilst qualified, find it difficult to get to grips with the British culture or struggle with the curriculum.

When these obstacles are overcome, it is not uncommon for the teacher to leave after a short period of time. The upshot is that you are left with another vacancy to fill and the pupils are left to start a new relationship with yet another new teacher.

Here's a quick rundown of the benefits of Educate UK’s service:

  • An educational recruitment company run by teachers
  • Large database of qualified, dedicated and hungry candidates
  • Candidates vetted to ensure they are of sound character to handle move
  • Candidates are familiar with curriculum and understand British culture
  • All candidates looking for long-term career progression
  • Educate help candidates to settle in and secure accommodation
  • You are protected by our terms of business should a candidate decide to quit at an early stage
