We have some great news! We here at Axcis Education Recruitment are delighted to announce that we have achieved our REC Audited Education status.
Why does this matter to you?
After the Department for Education’s Quality Mark (QM) scheme ceased to exist in 2013, and after consulting with members, local authorities, teaching unions and school organisations, The Recruitment and Employment Confederation decided to offer REC Audited Education. This scheme builds on the legacy of the Quality Mark and has been designed with safeguarding in mind, ensuring agencies are carrying out the relevant checks when recruiting teaching and non-teaching staff.
Some of the areas covered within the audit are:
- Data protection
- Training and induction
- Complaints procedure
- Customer service
- Work seeker checks
- Dealing with clients
We are proud to be a REC Audited Education Recruiter. It goes right to the heart of providing schools, parents and governors with the best service possible. This accolade gives you the confidence and assurance that we adhere to the highest standards within the recruitment industry and education sector, as has always been the case but we proudly now have the “official” stamp. If you need to verify our presence (or anyone else’s) on the list of accredited recruiters, you can do so here.
Why use an REC Audited Education agency?
By using an REC Audited Education member, as an employer you know that:
- They have demonstrated that extra level of compliance
- The agency you are working with is one of the top 10% of agencies in REC membership that has demonstrated their professionalism
- You know they have a recognised kite mark of excellence and have undergone specific checks within the education sector
- You can be confident you are using an accredited supplier that is accountable to a professional body
- They are helping to build the best recruitment industry in the world
Helen Hughes, Head of Vetting for Axcis has this to say about the award:
“Achieving Audited Education Status goes a long way to demonstrate our commitment to professional practice and safeguarding here at Axcis. We are hugely proud of this award, and of the fact that after the audit, we were informed that we had one of the best assessments that they had ever done. This means that both our candidates and clients can rest assured that we put child safety at the heart of our business values.”
