Secondary & SEND recruitment

Reed’s secondary education and special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) recruitment specialists have vast experience in finding the best staff for your school.

Through the UK’s largest digital recruitment service Reed.co.uk, our education experts have access over one million education professionals and support staff  to help maintain the
best Ofsted standards in your secondary school – from teachers of STEM subjects and English, to principals and other senior leadership roles.

Our specialist SEND recruitment consultants work across early years, primary, and secondary, and focus entirely on this area of education. Every one of our recruiters receive Team Teach training, and keep abreast of the latest developments within the field.

We work with you to source special educational needs coordinators, teachers and learning support assistants from our large database of high-calibre SEND professionals, matching the exact requirements of your school and pupils.

Reed is dedicated to providing the highest level of governance for the safe delivery of learning, providing you with the reassurance you need from a trusted recruitment partner.

Tutor recruitment

Following the disruption schools have faced, we are very proud to be part of the national effort to support disadvantaged pupils through the national tutoring programme (NTP). We specialise in delivering impactful sessions both face to face and online, through a national network of high-quality specialist tutors, to students across primary, secondary and SEND settings.

Through our market-leading online tuition platform, you can work in partnership with your tutor to aid the learning and progress of your students – ensuring they achieve the desired, measurable outcomes. 

We will help you find the best tutor to fit the needs of your school, whether that’s a QTS qualified teacher, professional tutor, SEND specialist, HLTA or a specialist university student with the right subject knowledge. 

Reed can offer various levels of support dependent on your school’s needs, including 1:3, 1:2, or 1:1 tuition for students needing extra assistance.

Reed has access to a range of teaching cover and supply teaching staff, all of whom go through rigorous checks and safeguarding.
