Depending on your circumstances, the criteria for registration and supporting documentation which we require can vary. However, broadly speaking, this is what we will ask for:

  • For teaching roles, a relevant degree-level teaching qualification (or be in your final year of teacher training)
  • Experience of classroom-based teaching within the last 6 years
  • A valid visa to work in the UK or hold an EU Passport
  • Relevant proof of identification
  • An enhanced DBS disclosure check

Where documents are required, you will need to provide these to us for verification. These will only need to be supplied after a registration has been arranged.

All candidates registering for work in schools must also undergo a face-to-face interview before attending a school. 

We work with schools all over the UK but predominantly mainstream and SEND schools in the North West and Manchester areas. School types include Primary Schools, Secondary Schools, SEND Schools, SEMH (PRU) Schools and EYFS Schools.

While we do operate nationwide, we specialise in the North West and Manchester areas. If you’re based in one of these locations, it’s highly likely that we can offer you work in a school on your doorstep!
