We are consistently rated one of the Top 10 education recruitment agencies in the UK, with 9/10 on Rate My Teaching Agency, 4.6/5 on Facebook and 4.5/5 on Google

We are extremely proud to be such a highly rated agency, but what we are most proud about is that the ratings we have are from over 12 years of reviews from schools and teachers that were once in the same position as you.

We believe in doing things the right way - building relationships based on understanding and respect. This is represented by Vision being in the Top 10 education recruitment agencies in the UK, with 9/10 on Rate My Teaching Agency, 4.8/5 on Facebook and 4.2/5 on Google. We are extremely proud to be such a highly rated agency, but what we are most proud about is that the ratings we have are from over 12 years of reviews from schools and teachers that were once in the same position as you.

Vision Teaching was established in February 2007 by our owners, Daniel and Craig who set Vision up to be a different type of educational recruiter - one that was committed to excellent customer service and building long-term relationships. We are one of the last established, independent recruitment companies in London. Throughout that time we have filled over 400,000 bookings, successfully placed almost 5000 people into roles and worked with over 1,140 schools.

We solely focus on London, attracting and retaining quality teaching staff so that we can make a real difference to pupils in our partner schools. We proactively recruit for all teaching and senior leadership positions.

We intelligently match teachers to schools to provide a recruitment service that adds value, even when providing temporary cover. Here at Vision Teaching we work with hundreds of schools all over London, who rely on us to help cover their recruitment needs. Our role is to help you get experience in a range of schools, whilst developing your career and genuinely making a difference to the schools you work in.

NQT CAREERS WITH VISION

We truly believe in making a difference to the lives of our teachers and that starts with investing in the next generation of leaders. Every year we run an NQT programme, to help you find your ideal role. We’re always looking for NQTs who’ll add value and make a difference in education, who will benefit our partner schools.

In response to alarming figures that highlight a national shortfall of 30,000 teachers and with 45% of NQTs thinking of quitting the sector, we decided to take a solution-led approach with partnerships to innovate school recruitment campaigns and ensure we support the next generation of educational leaders.

We co-ordinate UK university recruitment to find the best NQTs and graduates from all over the UK and provide you with help, support, advice, tips and most importantly career development. We take the time to get to know you, what you are looking for, the type of school you would like to work in and your ideal location. From interview tips to behaviour management training and social events, we’ll provide the support you need throughout your first year in teaching. By running an NQT programme, we can continue to further support NQTs to find the right school and get your career off to a flying start!

Support given to NQTs to ensure successful outcome of statutory induction:

  • Working as your specialist recruiter we partner with you to support you with your first steps in teaching career
  • If you are looking for flexible work options following four years on average of study, working on a guaranteed supply contract can give you flexibility and freedom while you find your feet in schools. This will allow you to see a variety of schools, build your confidence and help you plan for your future career all whilst getting a guaranteed income. With a range of experience in different schools alongside CPD training, we will better equip you during decision making for permanent roles.
  • We provide a support network with a community of teachers where we host events, socials and offer free of charge training, to provide you with all the support you need as you are developing your careers

  • We are not just an agency, we’re a consultancy that understands the challenges facing NQTs. We set ourselves apart from the competition with the programme and we don’t just recruit NQTs because schools require them, we do it because we want to partner with teachers who will work with us time and time again, much in the way we partner with schools creating long lasting relationships

SEND TEACHERS

As a special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) teacher you’ll work with children and young people who need extra support, or require an advanced programme of learning, in order to reach their full educational potential.

You may work with individuals who have physical disabilities, sensory impairments (i.e. hearing or visual), speech and language difficulties, learning difficulties such as dyslexia, conditions such as autism, social, emotional and mental health needs, or have a combination of these difficulties.

A key aspect of working in this field is identifying individual needs and being responsible for creating a safe, stimulating and supportive learning environment.

Responsibilities:

  • Teach either individuals or small groups of pupils
  • Prepare lessons and resources
  • Mark and assess work
  • Develop and adapt conventional teaching methods to meet the individual needs of pupils
  • Use special equipment and facilities, such as audio-visual materials and computers to stimulate interest in learning
  • Use specialist skills, such as teaching Braille to pupils with visual impairments or sign language and lip reading to students who have hearing impairments
  • Assess children who have long or short-term learning difficulties and work with colleagues to identify individual pupils' special needs
  • Work with the senior leadership team and governing body to improve the students learning
  • Liaise with other professionals, such as social workers, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists and educational psychologists
  • Work closely with parents and guardians
  • Organise learning outside the classroom in activities such as community visits, school outings or sporting events
  • Assist with personal care/medical needs
  • Carry out administrative tasks, including updating and maintaining records of pupils' progress
  • Attend statutory annual reviews or other related meetings, such as Looked After Child (LAC) reviews, regarding students with SEN, which may involve reviewing education, health and care (EHC) plans
  • Attend in-service training
  • Manage challenging behaviour

CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT (CPD)

We believe in positively affecting the lives of pupils throughout schools in London. To do this we want to provide our staff with up-to-date training to assist with the most important job of all, being an educator in schools. One of the biggest issues we hear from people working through agencies in schools is a perceived lack of training and support. We believe that just because you aren’t permanently employed doesn’t mean that you should miss out on career development or access to training.

We have partnered up with the CPD Certification Service to provide accredited courses that can help you develop your career and document your activities. So, what is CPD? CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development and is the term used to describe the learning activities professionals engage in to develop and enhance their abilities. It enables learning to become conscious and proactive, rather than passive and reactive.

Engaging with Vision Teaching’s CPD ensures that both your academic and practical learning are kept current, allowing you to continually ‘up-skill’ or ‘re-skill’, regardless of your occupation, age or level of education.

Our CPD programme has a range of training for support staff as well as teachers. Our overall aim is to provide training and learning that increases both your confidence and capability, as well as complement your career aspirations.

Courses coming soon:

  • Team Teach Training
  • Introduction to SEND / Autism Awareness
  • Making the Curriculum Work for You
  • Stimulating Progress in Literacy and Numeracy
  • Effective Classroom Management
  • NSPCC – Safer Recruitment in Education – Online

We regularly hold training events, so if you want to get involved in our CPD programme or if you are interested in booking your place today by contacting Marianne on 0207 430 7120 or contact careers@visionteaching.co.uk

Senior Leadership Team

We are very proud to be exclusive recruitment partners to two boroughs in London. As part of our commitment to assist with the effective recruitment of staff to raise attainment in schools, we have also pledged to help schools with their senior leadership recruitment. We want to help bridge the gap in all areas to focus on what really matters the pupils.

Moving from classroom teaching to leadership positions can allow you to take charge and ensure continuous improvements for the greater good, more than just the pupils in your own classes, but year groups, different subjects. Plus, you will also have the opportunity to be led and guide other members of the staff. We have recently sponsored NAHT training to help add values to schools across London.
