- About us
Throughout this year we recognised that we needed additional support as a business, to help us recover from the effects of COVID. APSCo have always been proud of its close relationship with its members but also on its professional compliance standards, as all members must pass an external quality check with clients and candidates. We have committed to a strict Code of Conduct that demand high levels of professional behaviour at all times.
Our resource and compliance team are undergoing stringent training ASPCo training so that we continue to be Compliance+ accredited recruitment company.
We go beyond all statutory safeguarding standards and aim for excellence in selecting the right candidate for your school, whilst delivering a cost effective quality service with market leading customer service.

We always meet in person to ensure candidates meet our benchmark standards. All candidates are required to demonstrate English competence to support pupils from Reception to GCSE level and a positive attitude towards safeguarding and the protection of children.

The nominated school contact will also receive information on our core standards, our Code of Conduct stating the professional expectations of Vision Teaching and sign our safeguarding policy.

When an assignment is booked the nominated school contact will receive confirmation via email containing the following information: candidate name, specialism, photograph (taken at interview) and an attached vetting checklist, which complies with the standards set by DfE and the REC providing the following key details:
Our ID is issued to candidates who satisfy our suitability and competency checks requirements. Candidates should present this card, along with their original DBS certificate to the client school on arrival to an assignment.
