We care about your classroom, your college, your lecture room. Our goal is to ensure you can concentrate on what matters most - delivering fantastic educational outcomes.
The national shortage of teachers and lecturers versus the corresponding population explosion shows no signs of change. As a consequence, increasing numbers of schools are relying on increasing numbers of recruitment agencies to cover staff. As a result the cost and administration involved is rapidly rising.
The abolition of the DFE quality mark for agencies operating in the education sector has also meant that compliance has, once again, become a hot topic to ensure a safe environment for children and young adults. Throw in escalating budget pressures and a perfect storm is circulating.
We recognise these challenges and have designed our neutral vendor solution to address this. Working with GRI you can outsource the agency management piece to us to reduce both budget and time spent. We can additionally streamline your direct supply, supporting individual schools/FE and HE establishments or clusters/academies to manage their black book of supply teachers more effectively.
Importantly, we can also help set up and monitor school specific recruitment standards – whether that’s a requirement for every supply teacher to have three references or five and additional crucial compliance items.
