At Randstad Education, we work hard to provide high quality teaching, leadership, support, and non-teaching staff to primary, secondary and SEN schools, multi-academy trusts and federations. As genuine market specialists since 1960, more than 2,500 schools engage Randstad teachers and support staff every week, impacting the lives of over 85,000 children every day. We also support 85 local authorities across the UK helping unlock a world of exciting career opportunities for our candidates whilst ensuring our clients have top class support both inside and outside of the classroom.
Schools are finding it harder to attract and retain staff. With recent figures showing more teachers leaving the profession than joining, and more retiring, it is crucial to plan ahead and secure the right staff to ensure your school continues to raise standards and deliver outstanding results.
Access our database of candidates. We take pride in our network of candidates. With a database of over 45,000 active teachers and support staff, we have the solution to your staffing needs. We believe in working together, so we’ll get to know what works for your school or academy and tailor our approach to suit your needs. We’ll work with you to help you to anticipate challenges, supporting with pipelining talent, budget planning and delivering the right candidates to your school, when you need them most.
Technology with a human touch. Technology and social media are integrated into nearly every part of our daily lives at work and at home. This is no different when looking for staff for your school or academy. Randstad brings you the benefits of an investment strategy that brings technology to the forefront of our processes, delivering a smart and efficient service to you when you need it most.
Our latest search technology is the “go compare” of the recruitment world, harnessing the best of our own resources and databases as well as all the specialist job boards and CV libraries. Our search system enables us to provide you with high speed access to hundreds of relevant candidates for every role. Our specialist recruiters then narrow the results to find the right shortlist for your school or academy. In reverse, the system takes your job to thousands of candidates under our supervision.
Putting your pupils’ safety first. When candidates register with Randstad, screening and completing pre-employment checks quickly and efficiently is paramount. Safe screening through our inhouse, cloud- based screening system ensures that all candidates are compliant with Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSIE 2016). The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) audits our systems and processes, and we have maintained a 100% compliance mark since 2009, reassurance that everything possible will be done to keep your pupils safe.
Flexible solutions. We take great pride in being able to deliver talented professionals across the whole school. From primary to secondary, SEND and support staff, we have specialist consultants for every area who understand what makes each part of your school tick.
Virtual schools. We work with Local Authorities and schools to provide one-to-one support for children and young people who are looked after, have SEND, or need mental health or mentoring support. Our workers are handpicked based on their experience of working with hard-to-engage pupils and their passion to help these pupils to achieve.
Secondary. You will work with specialist secondary consultants who have an excellent knowledge of the schools and candidates in your local area. The strength of our database supports in providing candidates that are able to work on a day-to-day or long-term basis, or on permanent assignments.
SEND. Recruiting SEND experienced teachers and support staff requires specialist knowledge. It is important to us that our candidate selection can make a positive contribution to your school or academy, which is why every candidate is carefully selected for their interest, passion, skills and experience of working in settings similar to yours. All candidates will be able to demonstrate a sound working knowledge of the SEND code of practice.
Access to training is also provided for those that work in the SEND environment. We provide a number of CPD courses that support behaviour management, specialist knowledge, and personal care (to basic level). Our supply staff will work with your own staff to provide the best possible care and support when required, under appropriate supervision and instruction from senior members of staff. Some of these courses are provided to support knowledge via e-learning platforms.
