After our first full term supplying to schools across Suffolk, we are proud to announce that we have been recognised by The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) for officially adhering at all times to the highest standards within the recruitment industry and education sector.
The accreditation was designed by REC with safeguarding in mind, to ensure that agencies are carrying out the relevant checks when recruiting teaching and non-teaching staff. The audit also requires agencies to operate best practice in areas such as customer service, staff development, diversity and client management. There are currently less than 100 education recruitment agencies in the country which hold this accreditation, and we are so proud to now be part of this statistic!
According to REC chief executive, Kevin Green, “By undertaking this specialist audit, recruiters are measuring themselves against the highest industry standards. The success of REC Audited Education is ensuring best practice within agencies and ensures we continually improve the standard of teachers placed within our schools.”
We have worked hard to meet the REC Audited Education standards and are incredibly proud of the achievement as it reflects the values of our company and further builds on our aim to provide a high quality, professional service to schools in Suffolk.
Opus Teach Managing Director, Paul Lowes, says “We are very proud to have developed a service which has achieved the highest standards set out by REC. The award confirms Opus Teach’s best practice approach to supplying teachers into schools and continuous improvement. This achievement gives schools an assurance that quality, integrity and transparency are at the heart of everything we do.”
After a pilot period we launched in September 2018 with the aim to help improve standards of supply in Suffolk for both schools and teachers. We focus on providing high quality, fully compliant staff, who have each been interviewed by an educational professional. We also pay supply teachers fairly, in line with Main Teacher Pay scales.
Our service works by using a unique system, supported by on hand account managers, to match teachers to schools based on their skills and qualifications. This ensures that every teacher is placed in a role which suits their specialities and enables them to add value to the classroom.
