As an education agency we supply fully vetted teachers and teaching assistants to schools to cover day to day, long term and unfilled permanent posts. Our recruitment process includes an online application, an initial over-the-phone interview and an in-person interview at our office in Bury. We ensure that the best suited candidates are presented to our schools. Please note that applicants require an enhanced DBS check or have to be willing to attain one through ourselves.
