Accreditations you can trust 

Whether you're a school seeking staff, or a supply teacher looking for work, you need to feel confident that you are partnering with a highly reputable agency. Our numerous accreditations are testament to our market-leading service.

REC Audited

REC Audited Education is a ‘kite mark’ for recruitment in education. It builds on the legacy of the Quality Mark (QM) which the REC managed for the Department for Education for over a decade. REC Audited Education continues to ensure safeguarding and that agencies are undertaking all the relevant checks when recruiting teaching and non-teaching staff. REC Audited Education enables schools, parents and governors to be confident that they are using an accredited supplier. The standard looks at more than just compliance, requiring agencies to demonstrate that they operate best practice in areas such as customer service, staff development, diversity and client management. The REC Audited Education scheme is the gold standard in education recruitment

Investors in People

Having been awarded the Investors in People Bronze award, you can be confident that the consultants working on your behalf have been trained to the highest level. Our commitment to providing a best-in-class service to schools and educators is ingrained deep within our business.

ISO 9001

As an internationally recognised quality measure, our ISO accreditation provides you with the confidence that all our internal processes have been evaluated and audited to ensure they meet the recognised standard.

What makes Teaching Personnel different?

Part of a family 

Teaching Personnel is part of Supporting Education Group, the UK's largest provider of services to the education sector. Our partnerships with the other member companies add value to our own service. 

Making a difference 

Our TP Tokens charitable donations programme helps us and our educators raise funds for up to five children's charities every year. Educators are awarded tokens to donate to causes of their choice.


We continue to make great strides in becoming a greener, more environmentally-friendly business. One example of this is switching to paperless invoicing, timesheets and payslips.

Rooted in communities 

Our staff regularly support their client schools at community events like school fêtes, galas and prize-giving presentations through our MyDifference initiative. We are very proud of our work in local areas. 

Enriching education 

Our free presentations at schools provide pupils with career advice and information on further education and training. We supplement this with workshop activities covering CV writing and interview skills. 

Supporting our people

From running marathons in aid of the MS Society to sleeping on the streets to support homeless teenagers, we encourage all our staff members in their pursuit of worthy and charitable causes.
