With the Criminal Bureau Records’ recent shocking revelation of over 4,000 teaching applicants carrying a barrage of criminal records, Tradewind Recruitment’s stringent recruitment process and its 100 percent score in the latest Department for Education (DfE) Quality Mark Audit assures schools and parents of quality teachers and safety for the children.

From reckless driving to arson, from violent offences to drug charges, the Criminal Bureau Records’ current figures show that 4,098 were found as unfit teachers. Tradewind Recruitment, premier provider of Primary, Secondary and SEN Teachers, and school support staff, recently scored 100 percent on the DfE Quality Mark Audit, which guarantees schools and parents that candidates seeking London teaching jobs are appraised and scrutinized thoroughly.

“The DfE Quality Mark requirements form the cornerstone of our recruitment process. We ensure that all teachers and support staff undergo stringent vetting procedures in accordance with the DfE ‘Safeguarding Children and Safer Recruitment in Education’,” describes Tradewind Recruitment.

Even Kevin Green, chief executive of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), lauds Tradewind Recruitment for its superior standard in recruiting teachers for the U.K. and Australia.

Tradewind Recruitment remarks, “All candidates undergo an initial 60-minute consultation to gain an understanding of the teacher’s behavior management strategy, knowledge of the U.K. national curriculum, and ability to work as a Tradewind supply teacher.”

The premier recruitment agency’s procedure includes verification of legal right to work in the U.K.; verification of teaching qualifications with research on General Teaching Council (GTC) membership; verification of teaching experience; receipt of health check; confirmation of professional references, and confirmation of List 99 Clearance, which is handled by the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA).

But central to these background checks are the overseas police clearance, when applicable, and the CRB Enhanced Disclosure. Tradewind Recruitment’s edge over other UK teaching agencies is its ability to perform a systematic check that allows them to make safe recruitment decisions that bar teaching candidates with criminal records from working with children.

The CRB Enhanced Disclosure is used by public, private, and volunteer organizations for positions that involve significant contact with children and vulnerable adults. The thorough criminal check enables entities like Tradewind to efficiently identify unsuitable people for work.

Tradewind Recruitment adds, “Tradewind Recruitment provides a single solution to all of your recruitment needs. We recognize that in the ever-changing school environment, your requirements for staff will also change… Whatever your staffing requirements, you can always be assured that anyone you employ from Tradewind will have met the strictest requirements of the DfE Quality Mark.”

Whether private or public schools are looking for long-term teachers, teaching assistants, or even nursery nurses, the Tradewind Recruitment guarantee, in strict compliance with the DfE procedures in “Safeguarding Children and Safer Recruitment in Education,” bolsters confidence that every student receives the best education from the best teachers in the safest condition.
