  • An introduction to Simply Education From humble beginnings – a basement office in Bedford to be exact – Simply Education has now grown into a £4 million turnover business representing a 37% year on year growth – an achievement of which we are very proud. With a mission to change the perception of the supply teacher in the school environment, the founding directors invested shrewdly not only in state of the art infrastructure and technology but also a team of highly experienced professionals. We have stayed small enough to care but large enough deliver and have built our business on the firm foundation of our "HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY" commitment which we give to every school and every teacher. It is this commitment that has engendered so much loyalty from the schools we supply.
  • The History of Simply Education Simply Education Ltd launched in January 2006 with a mission to change the face of educational recruitment. Since opening our doors we have worked tirelessly to establish our reputation as being honest, efficient and above all a reliable supplier of quality teaching staff. But don’t just take our word for it...James Caan, from the BBC’s “Dragons Den” was so impressed with the way we do business that he invested in Simply Education through his business HB RIDA. This is obviously a great vote of confidence and has allowed us to further invest in our infrastructure and product offering to all our stakeholders – schools, teachers and staff. It may be a cliché to say that our greatest asset is our people but it’s also true. Our seasoned consultants are real professionals with over half a century of combined experience between them. We’ve never believed in a one size fits all approach which is why with us, everyone gets a tailored solution. Sharon and Adam the Directors of Simply Education with investee James Caan

  • Testimonials for Simply Education Anita Barker Head Teacher at Scott Lower School, Bedford We have always found Simply to be an extremely helpful and professional organisation to work with for our supply cover. The teachers that they have provided have always been first-class and extremely capable. We recommend them to any school looking for quality supply cover and excellent customer service. Lesley a Primary Teacher in Bedford "Simply Education", 'simply the best' agency for supply teachers! This is my fourth academic year with the agency and I have nothing but praise for their professionalism and the amount of work they get for me. Being signed with several agencies I can honestly say that ‘Simply’ gets me by far the most amount of work. They are all nice people to deal with, especially Leeann and Sharon who I have the most contact with. Simply also runs courses and events to get all the teachers on its books to meet up for both career development and social occasions. I would recommend any teacher to sign with them, and any school looking for reliable service and high quality supply teachers to give them a go. Rebecca a Primary Teacher in Northampton I have been working for Simply Education since September 2009. I have had supply work throughout the year and enjoy teaching at the varied schools in and around Northampton. Denisa, Jason and the team at the Northampton office have enabled me to gain vital experience and skills. I would recommend Simply Education to any teachers who are willing and keen to work with such a supportive team. Tracey Courtney at Abbey College, Cambridge I would recommend Simply Education for all your supply teacher needs without hesitation. Ross and the team know our college and requirements to such an extent, that our needs are met first time without exception. They always respond very efficiently to our requests and no problem is too big or small. Simply Education provide high quality, reliable and flexible supply staff at a competitive rate. Ross and the team are cheerful, friendly, helpful and professional at all times. I can honestly say that other schools and colleges will enjoy working with the team at Simply Education and receive a high quality service that is second to none.
