FAQ's

What kinds of work can Classic Education offer?

Classic Education can offer you both Daily Supply and Long-Term Contracts, either as a qualified teacher, or for classroom support roles such as Teaching Assistants.

We work closely with Nurseries, Primary & Secondary Schools, Colleges and Specialist SEN Schools throughout Kent and the surrounding aereas.

Long-term posts come up for a number of reason, such as covering Long-Term sickness, maternity cover, or providing a temporary solution to a permanent appointment that a school has been unable to appoint for, which can often be a fantastic way of getting into a school and showing them exactly what you could offer on a longer term, or permanent contract.  There are also a number of our regular clients who we assist in recruitment for their permanent posts.

Is it easy to register with Classic Education?

We try to make the whole process as straight-forward as possible.  First, you‘ll need to get in touch with one of our consultants, this could be by simply giving them a quick call, or by applying to one of our jobs advertised online.  We will be able to establish your requirements for a new role, and work out which of our specialist consultants will be able to help you in your job search. We will then be able to invite you in to the office for a more detailed conversation, and give you all the information you’ll need in order to complete your registration, as well as making sure you kjnow what documentation you’ll need to bring with you.

Can you offer me work suitable to my needs?

Classic Education have established themselves as one of Kent’s leading recruitment agencies for education, and over the years, we have helped thousands of teachers and school support staff find work in schools, nurseries and colleges around the South East.  We specialise in the local area, so we are ideally placed to find you suitable school opportunities.

How will I get paid, and how much?

Obviously, the rate of pay you’ll receive is based on a number of factors, and this will be discussed and agreed between yourself and your consultant prior to arranging any work with Classic.

You will be paid on a weekly basis, and you will submit a timesheet to our accounts department at the end of each week to confirm the days you have worked and with which school.

A blank timesheet will be attached to your placement confirmation.  However if you don’t have that to hand, you can always download a copy here.

Where do I send my timesheet?

Timesheets should be sent by email, directly to our Accounts department, BEFORE 1pm on Monday.

Email: 

Contact details are also included on your timesheet.

Looking to get back into Teaching?

If you have QTS (qualified teacher status), you can take up a permanent or supply teaching role at anytime, and there is no specific need to complete any formal training to do so.  However, if you have been out of the classroom for over 5 years, we would suggest that you look at completing an suitable refresher course, which can be found on the DfE website.

Am I able to complete my induction year?

Of course - Newly Qualified Teachers (NQT’s) are able to complete their induction across 3 separate placements in different schools, provided each is for at a least a full academic term.

If this is something you’d like us to help you with, Classic Education will work closely with you to ensure that we find you a role in a suitably supportive school.

If you’re looking for short term or daily supply teaching, you are able to do this for 5 years from the date you gained Qualified Teacher Status. Once the 5 years is up, you may only accept long term roles that will count towards your induction year.
