Why should you choose Teaching Personnel?

Why should you choose Teaching Personnel?

Date posted : 18 March 2019

As a teaching candidate, the world is your oyster – at least when it comes to career opportunities. With 47,000 more secondary teachers needed by 2024 to accommodate an explosion in pupil numbers, there’s an abundance of education vacancies at every level waiting to be filled. Whether you’re a primary or secondary teacher, teaching assistant or SEND teacher, there is no shortage of jobs available to you. So how do you decide which role to take – how to secure it?

The right recruitment agency not only provides jobseekers with many varied job opportunities, but also works with the candidate to find out what they’re looking for and why. A skilled recruiter will get to know you, understand your priorities and help to support you through the entire process. But not all recruitment agencies are created equally. Here’s what you should look out for when selecting who to entrust with your teaching career:

An abundance of choice

The UK boasts a whopping 32,113 schools, with more than 10 million pupils and more than 500,000 full-time teachers. As the Department for Education expects secondary school pupils to rise in number by nearly 20% by 2025, there will only be an increasing array of available roles for teaching staff to choose from.

Our long-standing relationships with schools all over the UK means we always have a significant range of vacancies on offer. More than 5,000 schools choose us for staffing, intervention and supply cover needs, and with thousands of roles consistently on our site, education professionals who work with us get the luxury of choice. Within SEND alone we have opportunities for teaching assistants, youth workers, SEMH functional skills teachers and tutors, to name just a few vacancies.

Our sheer volume of teaching jobs means candidates can really hone in on the specific subjects, locations and specialities they want to focus on. Teaching Personnel has a continually expanding branch network – currently more than 80 - across England and Wales, with vacancies everywhere from Hackney and Wandsworth in Central London through to Nuneaton, Cardiff, Bournemouth, Doncaster and Oldham – and everywhere in between. Our School and Academy Groups Recruitment Partnership provides the opportunity to work regularly across a number of schools within a cluster.

Consultants with specialist knowledge

While a wide selection of roles is ideal for most job seekers, it’s important to balance that with specialist industry knowledge. Dedicated recruitment professionals who work solely within the education industry have the advantage of not only a broader network of schools and opportunities to offer you, but also a real understanding of what’s happening within the teaching and education industry.

At Teaching Personnel, we’re not just recruitment professionals – we’re education experts. We make it our business to stay ahead of any updates and trends in the education industry, and if new legislation or regulation emerges, you can rest assured that we will know about it and how it might impact you.

Ongoing support from your recruitment partners

At Teaching Personnel, we believe in the value of ongoing service, with a personal approach to how we recruit. As part of this, candidates who work with us receive a variety of exclusive benefits, such as our CPD Academy. This online portal allows staff to browse and book the most up-to-date CPD courses available, along with lesson resource, interview and trial day preparation guides and practical resources to allow teachers to stay on top of their careers.

Our vetting department is the biggest in our business, and this focus on safeguarding means you work with an agency that is highly regarded for the importance we place on keeping children safe in education. Through our dedicated resource centre, we provide expert advice on everything from renewing your DBS check and taking your teaching career to a new location to how to manage the behaviour of your pupils. It’s this industry-specific knowledge and support that makes us a leading supply teaching agency with a difference.

Have your skills recognised

When you work at schools through Teaching Personnel you have the opportunity to receive endorsements. This is a service we’ve introduced to encourage school leaders to acknowledge and recognise candidates for skills and behaviours that impact the schools and students they work with. Endorsements are recorded against your profile and build up as you work at different schools through Teaching Personnel, and act as a fantastic record of success that you can take with you as your career progresses.

Join us

We have a huge range of roles for teachers and teaching staff at all levels across the UK. If you’re looking for your next teaching opportunity, we’d love to help. Browse our latest roles now to find your next teaching opportunity.
