What our teachers think

Our support team

We have former teachers and platform experts giving you the best support, every step of the way. We're happy to help when you need us.


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 600 schools in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, Cardiff, Cornwall and Devon.

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. If you don’t have a DBS certificate, just contact us and we can arrange one for you.

You'll be paid weekly on Fridays for the work you completed the previous week.

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 They have to charge high commissions because their booking procedures are largely manual and run on outdated systems.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.

Start a conversation on chat or email support@zeneducate.com and our friendly team will get back to you shortly.
