Find the right teachers and support staff


smartEducation is a tailored recruitment service that will ensure you're able to find candidates that fit your job description, as well as your school’s ethos.

Understanding how well a teacher or staff member will fit into your school community can be difficult to gauge based on an interview alone. To make your assessment easier, you’ll have access to our Expert Teacher Appraisal Framework (ETAF) – our candidate benchmarking scale, developed in collaboration with leading independent schools. ETAF identifies characteristics that distinguish successful teaching and gives you a detailed assessment of a candidate’s values and behaviours.

smartEducation candidates come with:

  • A comprehensive CV
  • Preliminary interview screening insights
  • Two years of completed reference checks
  • A detailed child protection assessment

smartEducation brings a huge degree of certainty to us; the certainty is that we know that we can pick up the phone and speak to one of the consultants who instantly understands the cultural fit and the need of the school.
