RQT Recruitment

Recruiting Recently Qualified Teachers

The quality of teaching in our schools plays a critical role in the quality of a student’s education. Therefore, it is of the upmost importance that schools and colleges have access to a pool of talent when catering for their recruitment needs. As a leading provider of Recently Qualified Teachers to early years, primary and secondary schools, academies and further education colleges; Castles Education can allow you to access that pool.

We have a reservoir of talented and enthusiastic individuals who have a year’s experience under their belt and are eager to take the next step in their professional careers. Our core team is entirely made up of school senior leaders. Therefore, we are different from other Teaching Recruitment Agencies as we are aware of staffing issues in education. As teaching is becoming an increasingly transient profession, we believe that recognising patterns of staff turnover and career advancement is one of the greatest challenges a school must face.

We can provide assistance in establishing a stable body of staff. Through taking a pragmatic and proactive approach to your recruitment needs, we will help you to adopt a short, medium and long-term approach to ensuring that you have sufficient numbers of high-calibre individuals on hand to teach your students. Although there is a current national shortage of teachers, we have a long list of Recently Qualified Teachers on our books looking for the right schools in which to further their careers and make their mark in the teaching profession.

At Castles Education we believe in quality over quantity which is why we never view the recruitment process as purely a numbers game. Therefore, you can be sure that if we recommend a teacher to you, we are doing so because we are confident that they are the right candidate for your school. We maintain close links with all the schools we work with and understand their recruitment needs. For this reason, we’re in a better position to make an informed judgement on which applicant will fit into a particular school and thrive in their new role.

This mutually beneficial approach has made us the automatic choice for schools and colleges throughout the UK looking for gifted Recently Qualified Teachers to answer their staffing needs and improve the standard of education their pupils receive. Furthermore, candidates choose us as they know our considered approach to recruitment will significantly improve their chances of making a successful application and increase the likelihood of finding a school where they will be happy to teach in.

In addition to answering your recruitment needs, we can also assist you in providing the professional support and development your applicants need. Although they may have one year’s teaching experience, there is still a lot to learn on their path to becoming Fully Qualified Teachers. We can empathise with this because we have the benefit of experience of being former teachers ourselves. Therefore, we know from past experience the levels of support a Recently Qualified Teacher needs to gain the confidence and skills required to become an inspirational source for their pupils.

It is in everyone’s interest that new recruits make a seamless transition into a school when they are relatively green to the profession. Their formative years can leave a lasting impression throughout their career, so it is important that every teacher receives the best possible start.

What you can expect from our applicants

Although we have offices in both London and Manchester, our extensive pool of talent consists of high-calibre applicants seeking opportunities throughout the UK. As you would expect, all of our Recently Qualified Teachers are DBS approved to work with children and have already completed a year teaching in a classroom environment. Every applicant is also subject to a robust quality assurance check, so you can rest assured that if they have been recommended to you by Castles Education, they must be a highly credible candidate. We have teachers specialising in subjects spanning the entire curriculum. Therefore, whatever position it is that you need to fill, we have a bright, talented and enthusiastic individual waiting to step into that role and make an enormous contribution to the pupils they teach.

What are the costs?

In an extremely competitive sector, we pride ourselves on providing the highest levels of service and value for money. Typically, we charge 20% commission as a standard rate of the gross salary offered. However, we would prefer to forge and maintain a lasting partnership with your school. Therefore, we are happy to negotiate a reduced commission rate if you choose Castles Education as your preferred or sole supplier of teaching professionals.

Within 2 days of contacting Castles, I had an interview with a school in Istanbul and the next day I got a job offer! I'll be working at a private primary school in a nice part of the city, and I can't wait to get started. Thank you so much!
