Welcome to Tes
We power schools and enable great teaching worldwide, by creating intelligent online products and services to make the greatest difference in education.
We work together with teachers and schools to build trusted education solutions that help them to be the best they can be. From safeguarding and compliance, to staff and pupil management, our innovative and flexible software and services help teachers and school leaders worldwide to provide the best education to millions of children.
With more than 13 million educators in our community, and working relationships with 25,000 schools in over 100 countries, we have the experience to make a difference.
What we do
Our range of software supports schools with timetabling, SEND provision, behaviour management, staff wellbeing and parents’ evenings.
Teachers all over the world find and share teaching materials on our resources platform, while our fully online Tes Magazine provides teachers and leaders with the latest education news, analysis, and teaching and learning research, anytime, anywhere.
Our recruitment services connect teachers and schools, helping educators to find their next role, and schools to find the talented staff they need.
And our training solutions help schools to develop and retain their trusted team, educators to progress in their careers, and everyone to keep up to date with the latest safeguarding knowledge.
For more than 100 years, we’ve supported schools and been a champion of great teaching. As education is changing, so are we. We’ve grown to provide a wide range of software to help schools and students flourish.
