Your application to join our Team and become a Link Education Teacher is very simple and straightforward.

Prior to interview we will send you some Registration Forms for completion and return to us. We will then invite you for an interview at one of our offices.

Our interviews are informative and non-competitive and are as much about you meeting us as they are about us getting to know about you and your requirements.

You will need to bring the following documents with you to your interview:

  • Induction completed confirmation letter

  • 2 Proof of address documents - utility bills etc.
  • P45, for current year from previous Employer
  • Marriage Certificate (if qualified in a different name)
  • Passport Photo
  • Training Record
  • Original VISA letter and Visa stamp (if overseas applicant)

The interview will normally last approximately an hour.

Vetting Process

After your interview we will complete a series of vetting procedures, these include:

  • Two Professional References - from your most recent employer and also a school based reference (for a minimum of 2 years previous employment history).
  • Qualifications Verified
  • NQT references will be requested from their college course and their placement schools
  • CV Checked - CVs must be complete and any gaps must be accounted for
  • Barred List Search - as part of the recruitment process and then annually
  • Disqualification By Association Declaration
  • Medically Fit to Work

Once we have completed these checks and established where you would like to teach and what type of teaching job you are looking for (long term, daily supply or permanent), we can begin to find assignments that best suit you.

Terms of Engagement

I just wanted to write this letter to say thank you for giving me the confidence and opportunity to go back into teaching. Having not activley taught for four years after taking maternity leave I wasn't sure if I would be confident enough to go back especially with the introdution of the new primary frameworks and interactive whiteboards. However,the schools you placed me with were really supportive and the encouragement you gave soon got my confidence back and after the first few assignments I felt like I had never been away. I have enjoyed all of my assignments.I really appreciated the time you took to listen about the age range I wanted to work with,that I only wanted to start by doing two days a week and that I did not want to travel too far from home. I would most definitely recommend working for Link Education not only because as employers I thought you were very professional and friendly,but also for schools looking to employ agency staff I think you would do the utmost to ensure you had the most suitable person available.
