Flexible Solutions For Your Recruitment Needs

Providing Quality Teachers and Support

At Essential Education we provide quality teaching and support to both primary and secondary schools, as well as a variety of other education providers across the Greater Manchester area. We provide flexible solutions to solve your day to day staffing issues, as well as a tailored recruitment service to place the best teachers in your classroom on a long term basis. We have been so successful in our field because our schools know that Essential Education only provides teachers and staff who are fit for purpose, trained, competent and emotionally equipped for the rigours of a demanding job.

Essential Education was founded in 2005 by Ben Horrocks, a former teacher from Bury. Since its inception, we have worked hard to build trusting, professional and long lasting relationships with our schools and teachers alike, so you can be sure that when we send you someone, it’s exactly who you need.

Our schools are assured that our thorough screening process involves face-to-face interviews with an experienced consultant, and that all of the relevant identification, reference and DBS checks have been completed.
