Education jobs agency’s joy 
at securing
gold standard

Have your say

A Barnsley-based recruitment agency has become one of the first in the country to gain a gold standard for the way it vets teachers and support staff before sending them in to schools.

Provide Education has been awarded the highest national accreditation for safeguarding children by the professional body which regulates the UK’s recruitment industry, the Recruitment and Employment Confederation.

The company underwent a thorough inspection of its policies and procedures, spot checks and interviews with agency staff to achieve gold standard status. It is one of only a handful of specialist education agencies in the country to have the award.
