Best-placed to serve the needs of Hertfordshire’s schools

Step Teachers proudly delivers the Hertfordshire Supply Teachers recruitment service in partnership with Herts for Learning, on behalf of Hertfordshire County Council (HCC).

One of only two recruitment agencies selected by Hertfordshire County Council to deliver this service, Step Teachers, with our offices in Welwyn Garden City, Hemel Hempstead, and North London, is best-placed to provide the county’s schools with top local teaching talent.

We can offer your school, whether local authority controlled, academy or independent, a solution based on quality candidates and stringent safeguarding.

Step Teachers provides:

  • Emergency sickness and ad hoc cover teachers and support staff
  • Short-term supply options for interim solutions
  • Long-term and permanent specialists
  • Specialist and honest advice
  • Transparent pricing and refund policy on placements
  • Safety-first approach to safeguarding and vetting

Is your school experiencing a shortage of specialist teachers?
Parts of Hertfordshire are experiencing difficulties in recruiting the right teaching staff for their schools. Step Teachers uses our network of UK branches and international recruitment links to successfully bridge this gap.

If your school wants to benefit from our Relocation Service to reach talent who may not usually respond to job vacancies, email your vacancies to relocation@stepteachers.co.uk and we’ll provide you with a shortlist of suitable candidates.

Safer recruitment and vetting

Step Teachers takes our safeguarding role seriously and all workers are vigorously vetted before being selected for an appointment.

Our stringent vetting procedures have been designed to surpass the requirements placed on us by the Department for Education’s ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ guidance document. We’re REC Education members and were awarded REC Audited Education Status in December 2017.

The following checks and procedures are carried out for all of our staff:

  • Full identity check
  • Qualifications
  • DBS Barred List Check and NCTL Prohibition Check
  • DBS Enhanced Disclosure
  • References
  • Right to Work
