iQ understands that teacher quality is paramount and listening to the needs of your school and matching them to the RIGHT teacher will enhance your pupils learning experiences. We are committed to providing an unparalleled service that is built on quality, reputation and results...
You can be assured of a teachers compliance - over and above the requirements of the DfE we’ve done the hard work before you get to see a teacher! - a teacher will never commence an assignment without having had a face to face interview with at least 2 iQ consultants; will have had their eligibility to work in the UK, identification and qualifications verified; will have had at least 2 reference checks from previous teaching positions: will have undergone a Childrens Barred List (List99) and NCTL prohibition check; will have a valid Enhanced DBS; and (if applicable) will have undergone overseas police clearance.
To ensure we source top talent for the teaching requirement - CVs with substance! We not only source candidates from our extensive database but advertise on education specific job boards and printed media, subscribe to external data sources, use social media and value referrals from other teachers to attract top quality talent for your school. iQ will never bombard a school with unsubstantiated CVs with a 'see what sticks' approach!
We know our teachers
We go a long way to ensuring that we know our teachers and understand their skills, expertise and reputation. From an initial telephone interview, we will apply for their references and only on receipt of satisfactory references do we invite the teacher for a face to face interview, ensuring that we only register the best teachers. Our application and registration process includes understanding their knowledge, skills and views on areas such as assessment, differentiation, inclusion, handling disruptive pupils and classes, diversity, promoting a positive learning environment and themselves as quality educators, understanding special educational needs, curriculum knowledge and lesson planning.
iQ's offices are staffed from 6:45am until at least 6pm and outside of normal office hours the main line is diverted to a consultant to ensure that you always get to speak to someone at what ever time you need to arrange cover or need advice. Home / office links means we can work on your requirements at any time, making your life easier.
School and teacher satisfaction is vitally important to iQ to ensure a quality service is provided at all times. iQ will seek constructive feedback from both the school and the teacher for all assignments either periodically through an assignment or at the end of an assignment. iQ acts upon such feedback whether negative or positive for the benefit of any training the teacher may require, or indeed any areas within iQ where things could have been done better. No one is above improving!
We have your budget in mind!
iQ ensures it is compliant with all legislation relating to agency workers and promotes the ethos of paying top quality teachers top quality rates. iQ continually reviews its rates against competitors providing a similar service and ensures that its rates are competitive. iQ is ever conscious of balancing top quality teaching staff within a schools budgetary constraints.
Why don't you try us for your permanent recruitment needs? "No Placement, No Fee"
Not only does iQ provide both daily and long term teacher supply cover, we provide a quality permanent recruitment service. No placement, no fee! Using iQ instead of your direct or other methods would reduce your administration and management considerably as iQ would take a detailed specification from you and manage the complete process from advertising, candidate acquisition and screening, arranging interviews, providing feedback regarding statistics on sources used, response rates and criteria used for short-listing, offer and acceptance management and vetting and clearance processes. What do you have to lose!!
Education recruitment at its best! We value all feedback from our clients and our teachers.
