Engage Education Joins The Ealing Learning Partnership

Engage Education has been named as a preferred supplier on the Ealing Learning Partnership, managed by the CCS. We are proud to have been selected as an agency that provides outstanding recruitment services to schools in the local area. Engage Education is already a supplier on a number of local and national frameworks that ensure fair fees across education for supply teachers including the CCS Framework and the Herts For Learning Framework.

How did the ELP select agencies for the framework?

14 suppliers are listed on this framework. To appear on the list of approved vendors, agencies have to set out their costs up-front and conduct rigorous background checks on their agency workers. At Engage, we work hard to make sure we exceed all compliance requirements for education recruitment agencies. We know that strong relationships are built on trust, and we’re proud of the comprehensive compliance measures we’ve built our agency on, which ensure our practices are safe, fair, and efficient.

Established in 2008, we’ve since grown to become a multi-award-winning education and support services agency working with academies, MATs, independent and maintained schools across the Home Counties, London and beyond. Our dedicated Ealing team has over 7 years’ of experience supporting local schools across the borough. We support our partner schools in finding teaching staff, cover supervisors, teaching assistants, SEND and intervention specialists, business managers, administrative and facility staff for all daily-cover, long-term strategic cover as well as permanent roles.

WHY usE THE Ealing Learning Partnership? 

There are many benefits to working on a recruitment framework, including;

  • Set daily rates – We’ve long advocated for transparency in recruitment to promote fairness for schools and to create an environment where recruitment is recognised as a partnership that allows schools to get the best possible deal for the best possible talent. Pre-negotiated terms for daily supply with the Ealing Learning Partnership and CCS Framework mean we can do just this.
  • Transparent and fair pay for supply teachers in line with AWR payscales
  • With Engage Education, you get the highest levels of safeguarding and compliance, first-rate customer service and transparency at all levels. 
  • CPD for supply teachers in your schools – we offer an outstanding development and support team who are on hand to train and help retain your staff, should any training requirements arise, we’re best placed to run events to suit your needs.

HOW WE SUPPORT SCHOOLS LOOKING FOR EMERGENCY COVER

We know the importance of finding supply teachers that are fully compliant and ready to work, our consultants have access to a pool of candidates who can provide supply teaching at short notice. When you contact us with a supply vacancy, we guarantee to respond within 15 minutes and can fufil 95% of emergency cover within the first hour of school starting. Cover can be booked between 7am and 5pm and we also have a call service available for weekday out of hours, weekends and bank holiday.

WHAT DO OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT WORKING WITH US?

Headteacher @ Selborne Primary:
“I have used Simon at Engage to fill my supply demands, both day-to-day and long term, for over 5 years; I would highly recommend his service. He knows exactly what I need from a teacher in my school and only suggests candidates who he knows will fit in with the ethos at my school. This saves me time and effort which I really appreciate. Simon is very personable and I feel like I get an individual service. Thank you.”

Deputy Headteacher @ Oaklands Primary:
“We have been booking staff from Engage through Simon for a number of years now. Over that time, the service we have received has been so good that we no longer use any other agency. Simon has a really good understanding of our school’s needs and works hard to match us with the best teachers. His communication is absolutely first class. He always responds to emails, calls and texts and keeps me in the loop so that I can make the most appropriate decision. He is absolutely reliable; if he says he is going to do something, I never have a moment’s doubt that it will happen. Even if I book a teacher at short notice, they are usually with us by 8.15am which means we have time to brief them fully before they are in front of a class. This helps them to feel confident about the day ahead. He also tries to prioritise us to ensure the children have the same teacher if a member of staff is absent for more than one day. I appreciate his attention to detail and his commitment to our children. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.”

Deputy Headteacher @ Hambrough Primary:
“I have had the pleasure of working with Simon for the past four years. Engage provide our school with day to day supply (teacher and teaching assistants), long term supply and recruitment of permanent staff. Day to day covering absence in school’s can be a challenging task. However, working with Simon has made this task much easier. His communication, both via email and telephone is excellent. Simon responds quickly to supply requests, taking the pressure off first thing in the morning. It’s never a problem and he will get it sorted! He regularly asks for feedback on supply staff to ensure the schools are receiving high-quality supply cover. Long term supply Simon has supported the school with long term supply teachers and teaching assistants. On occasion, we have contacted Simon and requested a long term supply to start the following day – short timescales don’t seem to worry him. Simon’s positive approach definitely takes away some of the pressure at school and allows us time and space to organise our staffing. These placements are always very well organised. Trial days works well to ensure the supply if the right fit for the school. Permanent contracts Where recruitment has not been successful we have been able to use Simon’s services to recruit permanent members of staff. A process of reviewing CVs, school tours and interviews is organised to ensure the school secures the right candidate. Simon is available to negotiate with the candidates, where necessary. I would recommend working with Simon and his team for all your supply needs.”
