Educate Staffing realise that recruiting for quality staff is harder now than ever before. With ever tightening budget constraints, spending money and valuable time on advertising and short-listing is seemingly found to be an ineffective source.
“Teacher Shortage”(The Independent, 2016)
“I am head teacher of a large, oversubscribed, high attaining primary school and I cannot get staff. I am not getting a single applicant for jobs – not one.” (BBC News, 2016)
Not only has advertising become somewhat futile, so have the promises from the agency who offers the world. Born from years of experience in the education market, Educate Staffing have moved on from the original vices of recruiting staff to create an exclusive service answering your needs. This service does not mean Educate Staffing simply register every prospective staff member to cross our path, we work in partnership with regional Head Teachers, Ofsted inspectors, and a Deputy Heads to identify which of these prospects align with the expectations we have come together to deliver. Each candidate’s CV is sent to an expert panel of education professionals, previously listed, who verified and vet each CV. The expert panel allows us to only provide you with the highest calibre of teachers to your school.
Listening to you
To achieve this, we must work in partnership in order to identify your way of working. Your dedicated consultant will have already researched your school but sometimes there’s information you just can’t obtain from what’s written down. We would therefore carry out a school visit to further ensure the suitable staff member is sourced for you. As a provider of excellence to you, we ensure we work with only the highest calibre teachers and teaching assistants. Working with Educate Staffing, you will receive an outstanding service from leading education professionals from across the country.
Unique Candidate Video Interview
We then go on to provide you with further exclusivity in a video format. You no longer need to waste time scanning CVs, you can sit back and spend 2-3 minutes watching a video interview of prospective staff.
