Our approach

Clarus Education has been born and developed from necessity. Education and schools are striving to achieve a highly educated society that is no longer restricted by background or family circumstances. The recruitment of staff needs to be consistent and of the highest standard without being a drain on resources and budgets.

Working with Clarus Education is very different from the traditional experiences of staff recruitment and the use of ‘supply agencies’. We are a specialist education recruitment consultancy, focused on high calibre permanent and long-term staff; providing a much improved and in-depth service to all schools.

Our consultative approach means we partner with our client schools. We stand out in our unwavering dedication to source the ‘right’ candidates, whether an office administrator, class teacher or key member of your SLT.

Safeguarding standards

At Clarus Education, we completely appreciate and understand that vetting safeguarding and security is paramount throughout education, which is why we ensure that all of our candidates are 100% compliant. We continually raise the bar, going above and beyond the Department of Education guidelines.

Our candidates and clients can always be assured that all vetting procedures have been carried out using all requirements and more within the industry, allowing clients to comply with their legal obligations for safer recruitment in education.

To ensure that our vetting procedures are always adhered to, we'll only place candidates that can demonstrate the following:

  • Proof of right to work in the UK (UK/EU Passport or valid Visa document)
  • Valid photographic ID
  • Teaching qualification – if applicable (verified by DfE/QTLS check or UK NARIC if awarded overseas)
  • Current DBS Certificate (including a valid Online Status Check)
  • Barred List Clearance (formerly List 99)
  • Overseas police checks – if applicable (for time spent living or working overseas)
  • Medical declaration
  • Structured and in-depth competency-based interview
  • Professional references (covering 2 years including the most recent employer)
  • Current CV (covering up to 10-year work history)

Prior to attending a trial day, interview or observation, Clarus Education will ensure all client schools have a complete list of the safeguarding checks for each and every candidate which the school will keep within their Single Central Record (SCR).
