justteachers Ltd celebrate award for highest industry standards

Published: Monday September 24 2018 by Melanie Crewe

justteachers Ltd has been recently awarded with the REC Audited Education Status – a recognised gold standard for education recruitment businesses.

justteachers is one of the top 10% of agencies in REC membership which demonstrates the highest possible standard of recruitment selection and commitment to best practice with regards to vetting teachers, compliance with legislation and safeguarding of children on a daily basis. Schools can be confident that by engaging with and appointing teaching staff through justteachers, they are using an accredited supplier that is accountable to a professional body.

justteachers was founded in 2005 and has quickly gained a reputation for offering excellent service to schools across the UK and Ireland.

Justteachers Operations Director, Caroline Cafferty, said: “I’m delighted and proud that we have been accredited with the REC accolade. It is recognition of our teams’ diligence and commitment to ensuring that our standards are of the highest in the industry. justteachers guarantee effective and ethical provision of supply teachers and support staff who are so crucial to the lifeblood of schools.”

Recruitment and Employment Confederation CEO, Neil Carberry, commented: “Gaining this award acknowledges the dedication and professionalism that you and your staff deliver and ensures these stringent standards of compliance and best practice are met on a daily basis. In attaining it your company is a credit to the REC and the reputation of the industry.”

Supply teachers make an increasingly important contribution to the smooth running of schools. At the same time, it is essential to ensure that the supply staff that are being placed within the schools are of the required standard and have been correctly vetted by the agency supplying them.

Within this context, the Government’s REC Award scheme plays a crucial role by providing a recognisable quality threshold and by promoting high standards in the provision of supply teachers.
