Randstad Education is the UK Market Leader and our specialist team have been helping teachers and support staff to find temporary and permanent education jobs for nearly 20years.
We have an unrivalled reputation within Primary schools in the London Boroughs, and work with over 2,500 schools each week to find the right match for your skills.
We take great pride in the extremely high service levels that we provide to both our schools and our candidates. Our service is honest and efficient and, in addition to our recruitment solution, we offer the opportunity for additional training and development for our candidates. You will also receive personalised career support from the team.
Due to our long running success providing in house supply services for South London Boroughs such as Wandsworth, Lambeth, Lewisham and Bexley, we currently need more teachers to help us meet the increasing demands of schools in Richmond and surrounding West London Local Authorities, who have been recommended to us by their neighbouring boroughs.
We are proud to support a diverse portfolio of both state and private schools within the Richmond area. The schools range in size, religious backgrounds and ethos, with the majority of them graded "Good" to "Outstanding" by Ofsted. The schools in the Royal Borough of Richmond are some of the most sought after in the country, with expectations of pupils and teachers being high. Facilities and resources are often exceptional, with parents being highly involved in the education and extra curricular activities of their children creating a strong communities and communication links within the schools.
Richmond is well known to be a highly affluent area, with many schools having pupils from a wide variety of cultural and religious backgrounds attracted by the reputation of the borough. This can lead to a range of ability levels, as well as EAL needs, however the schools have a strong support network of specialist TAs and other resources to assist teachers. The majority of pupils have a natural want to learn, and often work above the national average for their age groups. Therefore schools in this area require teachers who are able to deliver lessons which challenge the pupils, and encourage them to think and work beyond their comfort zones in innovative and creative ways.
We are looking for teachers with QTS for day to day, as well as Long Term assignments who can:
- Be able to teach in either KS1 or KS2 or both.
- Have relevant up to date experience in UK schools.
- Preferably have knowledge of SATs requirements, but this is not essential.
- Ensure effective classroom management in line with schools' behaviour policies.
- Treat every assignment as if it is a permanent role, injecting a sense of purpose into the classroom ad helping the schools continue to have a positive impact on pupils' lives to the best of your ability.
- Provide references to cover the last 12months, as well as be willing to complete a CRB/DBS check alongside other safeguarding checks and requirements.
In reward for our teachers' hard work and commitment we provide competitive rates of pay with no hidden deductions, access to Randstad Education's online CPD portfolio, bespoke CPD courses ran by professionals (often free of charge), long term and permanent job opportunities locally as well as across the UK and internationally, a dedicated consultant with a 24/7 on call facility and a honest and trustworthy approach that matches you to the right school.
