Substitute Teaching Agency

Simply Education is one of the top teaching agencies, and if you want to be confident about successful education recruitment for Substitute teaching jobs, permanent teacher jobs or teaching assistant jobs, you should be talking with us.  We fill Substitute education jobs in schools in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Buckinghamshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Derby, Suffolk, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and other central home county areas, literally every day.

Filling Substitute teacher jobs is essential to the running of any school. It's often an emergency stop-gap situation that arises when full time teachers are taken ill for a time, or are unavailable to the school for any other reason over a protracted period. That's when we at Simply Education step up to the wicket to offer support.

We first launched our service back in January 2006 and are already an important part of the fabric of the education jobs supply chain in the areas in which we operate. If you take a quick look at our website you will see a number of key substitute teacher vacancies that we are recruiting for throughout the Home Counties. So if you are pursuing substitute teaching jobs, and you have the appropriate skills, qualifications and experience to bring to these vacancies, then please contact us for further  details.

Substitute Teacher Jobs

Simply Education’s main focus is on Substitute Teaching, but we can differentiate ourselves from other general education recruitment agencies and simply advertising in the TES Jobs section (Times Education Supplement) because of the individually targeted service we offer to every substitute teacher or teaching assistant registered with us.  We pride ourselves on the quality of the service that we provide in trying to find you a substitute teacher job that is just right for you. What sets us apart from other substitute teacher companies is that we take extra care to ensure that we match the right teacher to any given circumstance. So if you are looking for substitute teacher jobs and you want to work for an organisation that truly values, and looks after its staff, we're the company for you.

Substitute Teaching Recruitment Agencies, Substitute Education Jobs for Schools

Simply Education seeks to serve both ends of the market. On the one hand we aim to satisfy and exceed the expectations of the needs of the schools in the areas that we operate, but we also seek to be a great employer.

You will be one of a small number of teachers that the consultant supports, finding appropriate substitute teaching vacancies that are both suitable, and at the same time challenging.

We do commend ourselves on our professional approach, and the level of support that we provide for registered members is second to none. To show you how successful we have become in achieving our goals, James Caan, one of the renowned dragons from TV's "Dragon's Den" has been an investor in our company.
