Find daily and long-term roles at schools near you
Choose when you work by setting your availability
We only contact you when you’re available. You have more control over when you work, managing your calendar for the week, month or whole school year
If the online sign up isn’t working as it should for you then you can email your cv and a short description of what you’re looking for to our team at email@example.com and we’ll be in touch.
To make sure you’re getting bookings perfect for you, we will invite you to a 30-minute online interview with our team to learn about your experience, preferences and why you’re passionate about working in education. You can do this through any smartphone or computer. If you’d prefer to interview in person at our office just let us know.
Recent regulation changes require us to see your documents for your right to work in the UK in person. This takes no more than 5 minutes dropping by our offices in London or Manchester.
If you're not ready to find another role, or you're just browsing, you're definitely still welcome to sign up. Registering with us and letting us know what you're looking for will help us to get in touch with you about roles you may be interested in!
Generally schools prefer teachers and TAs who are familiar with the UK Curriculum, but this can vary. We'd be happy to speak to you about your experience, and find out if we'd be able to help you find a role.
We’ll need evidence of your identity, right to work and teaching qualification. In addition, we’ll need an enhanced DBS certificate and references from two recent previous employers.
Yes. If you need a DBS or your DBS needs updating we can apply for one for you. The cost of a DBS is £47.20 which we will reimburse once you have worked 5 days through Zen.
Yes! You can sign up now and let us know what work you’re looking for. You can return at any time to finish your profile and start getting bookings.
You can definitely still sign up! Once you've uploaded your CV, we'll be able to look at your experience, and help you figure out who would be best placed to act as your referees.
We help Teachers, Teaching Assistants, and Cover Supervisors find work. We work with all types of schools and help with short-term, long-term and permanent roles.
Many of our long-term roles convert to permanent roles. We make it far easier than a traditional agency for teachers to convert temporary positions into permanent ones.
We work with over 400 schools in London, Manchester and Birmingham.
Generally speaking we have consistently high demand for daily supply teachers in Greater London, Manchester and Birmingham. Teaching assistant work is generally higher for long-term roles rather than daily supply cover.
Yes. We can help with daily supply and long-term jobs in nurseries, primary schools and secondary schools. We don’t typically have jobs in further education or college.
While the majority of our work is for teachers and teaching assistants we do also have work for cover supervisors and invigilators. Explain what you are looking for when you sign up and our team will help you.
We cover all subjects taught in primary and secondary schools - if you're not sure if we can help you with what you're looking for, please register and arrange to speak to a member of our Teacher Success team.
If you're looking for teaching or teaching assistant roles, and would also be interested in admin roles, it's worth letting us know. If you're only looking for admin roles, we might not be the place for you as this isn’t what we specialise in.
Zen Educate is a technology platform to connect teachers with schools directly. Agencies are an expensive middleman between schools and teachers. They have to charge high commissions because their booking procedures are largely manual and run on outdated systems. Because we run more of the process online or on your phone, we create an experience that delights schools and teachers at a fraction of the cost.
