Where we're different

We're not a traditional recruitment agency. We do things differently, so we've designed a system to work for you.

For schools we partner with, we give you access to our direct booking system. This makes your day to day recruitment as easy as booking an Uber.


Look, click, book

When you partner with Aquinas Education, finding great teachers is as easy as booking an Uber. Just look, click and book them directly.

Using our app, you can book fully vetted, experienced teachers in a matter of seconds, with just a few clicks.

You can browse through a huge database of teachers, check their qualifications and experience, message them directly if you have any questions, and book them instantly.

There are video introductions too, so you can see them in action.

We've even taken care of all of the paperwork as they are all vetted, checked and good to go.

Sign up today, speak to one of our consultants and start finding great teachers, as simply as look, click, book.


Build your own talent pool

Just one of the unique features about the new Aquinas App is the ability to create your own talent pool. Simply put, this feature enables you to create your own group of teachers and support staff you know and have booked before, for exclusive use within your own school or Trust.

These teachers, TA’s, HLTA’s and other support staff can then be booked instantly and directly for roles, as simply as booking your own private Uber.


Recruiting the best teachers from around the world

Finding great teachers is no longer a case of putting an advert out there and sifting through the hundreds of applicants to find the best.

It takes effort.

It's why we run recruitment fairs across the UK, Europe and Australasia to give you access to a huge pool of exceptional quality teachers. We have teams who specialise in individual country markets, whose sole aim is to recruit the best teachers and help them settle in the UK. We even have a full time consultant based in Australia, purely to make the transition easy for prospective teachers looking to work here.

We also recruit directly from Universities and Colleges to get exclusive access to graduate teachers. By ensuring our pipeline of future staff is full of quality teachers, we ensure we can supply all of your teaching needs.
