The Agency That Focuses On You

Providing Quality Teachers and Support

Our teachers and support staff know that they will be matched with schools that they are well-suited to - schools where they feel safe and valued, where they can shine, and where they are rewarded for doing an important job.

What can Essential offer me?

As soon as we hear from you one of our consultants will contact you by telephone for a chat about your current situation, and how we can help you find work. We can then arrange a face to face registration appointment, where we will go through your skills and experience in more detail, and get a good idea of the kind of placement which would suit you.

Once your registration documents and background checks are complete, you’re all set! Your consultant can then contact you about suitable placements for you to consider. When you successfully gain employment through us, we will keep in contact with you and the school throughout your time there to ensure you are happy and comfortable in your new role.

Will supply teaching suit me?
