Compliance with legislation and the requirements of the REC Audited Education standard is of the highest importance to us.

Our rigorous selection, registration and clearance processes are designed to ensure that only those who meet our standards and who are suitable to work with children and young people are cleared for work.

We select only the best, most suitable people as candidates and each term we reject many applicants who don’t meet the exacting standards we set for working within our schools.

Safeguarding training

All staff placed by Education Staffing Partnership have first completed free safeguarding training through our sister company Thirsty Scholars Partnership. They are also authorised audited and authorised by our compliance team, which then ensures that on-going monitoring and renewed vetting take place, supported by our bespoke recruitment software.

Education Staffing Partnership is also a fully compliant member of the REC.

“Having worked closely with Education Staffing Partnership for the last 7 years I have nothing but praise for their highly professional working manner and have always been impressed by the efficient and calm way in which they will find a solution to our supply needs. We can always rely on the team at Education Staffing to provide staff that are more than suitable for our requirements, whether they are short, medium or long term placements. All members of their staff are friendly and sincere and nothing is too much trouble for them. I would highly recommend the Education Staffing Partnership.”

Steve Brown - Head of Clwydd Primary

“Since taking over as Cover Officer in 2008, I have been using ES Partnership as a supply agency.  I have been immensely impressed with their service and have found that the staff sent from ES Partnership are always of a high calibre and they have never failed to provide staff for school when requested.  

I have consistently found the service from the staff at ES Partnership to be excellent. They are always polite, very helpful and pleasant to deal with. They are always at the end of the phone and do their utmost to fulfil our requirements. They visit on a regular basis to inform the school of any new developments in the field of education and training and tailor their services to meet these new demands.

I have recommended The Education Staffing Partnership as a supply agency to any teachers wishing to register as supply teachers.

I am sure the agency will continue to develop in the future and would wholeheartedly recommend them.”

Pen Y Dre High School

“I am writing to express my considerable appreciation to the work Owen and the team at ES Partnership have carried out in respect of providing supply and support, both for teachers and TA’s.

The service provided is second to none and clear communications are always sought on the part of ES Partnership in respect of providing the school with the best possible clientele to suit our needs. All staff provided are fully DBS checked and advice is always pursued from the school with the regard to the performance of the staff they have provided.

Having used a number of companies in the past, I have no hesitation in saying that ES Partnership has been far and above the best company used in terms of service and meeting the particular needs of my school.”

CJ Welsh - Head Teacher at St Therese's Catholic Primary School

“Over the past several years The Education Staffing Partnership has been a great help to us. I have always been thrilled with the responsiveness and level of service provided over the years. My contact has a good level of understanding and knowledge of what we require as a school and always handles our business in a friendly and personal way. Nothing is ever too much trouble.

The staff team should be congratulated on their level of honesty, engagement, loyalty and enthusiasm. It is a pleasure to do business with them. The teaching staff that have worked for us in the school have always been professional and punctual and many are now “regulars” as they are requested back to work time and time again.

I have no hesitation in highly recommending ES Partnership for their service reliability and quality. “

“ES Partneship is our agency of choice for many reasons not least of which is that they have worked alongside us for the last ten years. Top of the list is reliability and service – these are second to none. They also jointly select and train staff to ensure that we always have high-quality and confident staff. They understand our school and our needs and have always ensured good communication with our teams.

We would recommend them without reservation.”
