About us

Protocol Education is a specialist provider of classroom-based staff to schools and academies in England. We provide our 4,000 clients with the full range of classroom-based staff on both a temporary and permanent basis. Additionally, we provide teaching staff to international schools across the globe. 

Each year over 11,000 teachers, teaching assistants, SEND specialists, early years, one-to-one tuition staff, and intervention specialists work through Protocol Education on either a full-time or part-time basis to help children meet their education goals. Each one is met face to face by one of our staff and checked to ensure that they meet the DfE safeguarding standards.

Our national network of nearly 50 branches gives us superb local coverage to meet the recruitment needs of schools, while our international offices located in Australia, New Zealand and Canada are able to bring some of the best teaching talent from around the world to the UK.

We provide rewarding career opportunities for our own staff within our branches and support teams and develop team members through accredited internal training. Our values underpin our actions and act as a touchstone for everyone in the business:

  • Integrity and respect – we earn the trust of others every day, and we see the value in every person who comes to us seeking work,
  • Commitment and resilience – we don’t give up. We’ll do everything we can to achieve the right results for our candidates, clients and colleagues,
  • Pride and energy – we’re proud of the role we play in the world of education and our positive contribution feeds our enthusiasm,
  • Teamwork and fun – individuals, all pulling together to make things better. We love to help and do it with a smile.

We have gained recognition within our industry through awards and accreditations. We have won the Recruiter Awards Best Temporary Agency Award twice in the last 10 years and hold the REC Audited Status, ISO 9001 and Investors in People accreditations.
