diversity & inclusion – TOGETHER WE THRIVE
Teaching Personnel is committed to championing a culture of equality, where our people are empowered to be their best, both personally and professionally.
We are proud to support a culture and environment where we respect and value our differences and promote an inclusive workplace. We know that when people from different backgrounds and with different points of view work together, we create the most value and the best possible experiences for our clients, our candidates and our people.
Championing Quality – Always Improving – Teamwork -Passion for Education
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is part of our fabric. Working with schools and playing a role in the achievement of children and young adults is a privilege and something we are proud of at Teaching Personnel.
Our staff regularly support their client schools at community events including school fetes, galas and prize giving presentations.
Through our Bright Starts programme we provide free careers advice presentations at primary and secondary schools. Bright Starts gives pupils an insight into possible careers, further education and training opportunities. These presentations often have workshop elements – helping students with interview skills and CV writing.
TP Tokens is our charitable donations programme. Each year we support five children and/or education charities. The programme is highly engaging and allows our working candidates to decide which of the five charities they wish to support. They do this by donating a TP Token, which is earned every time they work ten days through us. At the end of each academic year we convert the TP Tokens in each charity pot into cash donations.
SUPPORTING OUR PEOPLE
From running marathons in aid of the MS Society to sleeping on the streets to support homeless teenagers, we support our staff in their pursuit of worthy causes. We also have a number of team pursuits each year with Team TP recently taking part in Ultimate Warrior in support of nasen (national association for special educational needs).
As we advance our digital services in order to maintain the best customer experience in our sector, we also continue to make great strides in becoming an environmentally friendly business. Online invoicing, timesheets, payslips and diaries are examples of our progress.
COMMITMENT TO QUALITY
We have worked solely as an education recruitment agency since 1996. During this time we have supplied staff to thousands of schools and helped tens of thousands of teachers and teaching assistants find the type of work they were seeking.
We understand that anyone looking to join us, as well as the schools and supply staff we work with, need to feel confident that they are partnering a highly reputable agency. We will protect and value your reputation and ours. Our numerous accreditations are testament to this commitment.
