Diary Date: CAPH Spring Conference - Wednesday 13th March 2024 with Dr Pooky Knightsmith and Jo Bradley

Zen Educate

CAPH is working with Zen Educate as our preferred partner for supply provision and permanent recruitment support.
Zen Educate's mission is to change the world of education recruitment. Schools spend over £2bn a year on agency staff, with over £600m per year of that spent on fees that go straight to the recruitment agencies. So far, we've saved UK schools over £10m in supply teaching recruitment costs, and that number grows every day, meaning the funding can be put back into education within the schools. Using our online platform, schools have access to hundreds of profiles of fully vetted teachers and support staff, who they can book at a click of a button. Think Uber for teachers.
Zen are safeguarding specialists - all candidates are strictly vetted. All consultants are Safer Recruitment trained and all candidates complete level 2 safeguarding training. Schools can access candidate information and a full vetting pack at any time.

Key features

Recruit and arrange cover

Our recruit and arrange cover tools match you with great Teachers, TAs and Cover Supervisors looking for short and long term work, as well as permanent roles.

Instant book

We predict the times when teachers are needed and prebook some of our best. This means you can instantly book them without waiting for a response or wondering whether they're available. It turns 'I need cover' into 'Problem solved'.
