FAQ

Signing up

I’m having trouble registering

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 teachwithus@zeneducate.com and we’ll be in touch.

How do I interview? Do I have to come to your office?

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.

I’m still in a full-time job/ not looking to work straight away and just looking

If you’re not ready to find another role, or, 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!

I only have overseas experience. Is that OK?

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.

Vetting

What documents will I need to provide?

We’ll need evidence of your identity, right to work and teaching qualifaction. In addition, we’ll need an enhanced DBS certificate and references from two recent previous employers.

Can you apply for a DBS for me?

Roles

What roles do you cover?

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.

What areas do you cover?

We work with over 400 schools in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and Leeds.

How much work is there?

Generally speaking, we have consistently high demand for daily supply teachers in Greater London, Manchester Birmingham, Bristol and Leeds. Teaching assistant work is generally higher for long-term roles rather than daily supply cover.

Do you have primary, secondary or nursery jobs?

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.

Do you have work for cover supervisors, invigilators, or school administrators?

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.

What subjects do you cover?

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.

Do you do school admin jobs?

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.

General

How is Zen different from a recruitment agency?

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.

What roles do you cover?

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