Educators change children's lives

Supporting Education champions educators. Our companies provide services and support covering all aspects of an individual’s career.


Education is a vocation. We want to help our educators meet their professional goals and make a difference to the lives of school children every day.




Every day, Supporting Education businesses place thousands of teachers and learning support staff in roles at schools across the country. Our recruiters provide educators with opportunities across an array of positions and specialisms, from core subject teachers to sports coaches and SEN assistants.

We cultivate the next generation of top teachers through schemes like our Future Teachers Programme and NQT Pools.

As Tuition Partners for the National Tutoring Programme, our companies have played pivotal roles in the delivery of in-school and online tuition. Tuition is a major part of our service to schools and we are passionate about helping pupils catch-up on lost learning.
