Provide basic information about yourself and your school.
Search our database and filter by the specific criteria that you need and then contact matching teachers.
Once a teacher accepts an invite to work, they’ll be notified of all the relevant details.
You’ll be able to manage future and pending bookings, as well as history and billing from our dashboard.

— Ann, London Headteacher
Keeping children safe is our highest priority. As such, our approach is designed to exceed the DfE guidance as set out in 'Keeping Children Safe in Education'. You can rest assured that anyone who is sent to your school has been subjected to a rigorous vetting process.
We complete the following checks on every candidate as part of our on-boarding process:
Identity documents such as passports are run through Onfido, a high-tech identity tool that as is significantly more effective than the naked eye for verifying documents. Onfido uses machine-learning to validate the visual integrity of a document and searches police databases to ensure the document has never been compromised.
When you complete a booking with Zen Educate, relevant information such as DBS number will be emailed to the school immediately along with a photo of the teacher.
We work with all types of schools and help them find Qualified Teachers, Teaching Assistants, and Cover Supervisors to cover short-term, long-term or permanent positions.
We strongly believe that when there is a good fit, there should be no barriers to hiring a great educator. Instead of the hefty “temp-to-perm” commissions agencies charge that could amount to thousands of pounds, we have a small, transparent flat fee of £600.
Zen Educate is a technology platform to connect teachers with schools. 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 They have to charge high commissions because their booking procedures are largely manual and run on outdated systems. Zen Educate uses technology to create an online booking experience that delights schools and teachers at a fraction of the cost.
Schools are able to select specific teachers to invite for work or are able to automatically invite teachers based on availability, distance, and specialist skills required.
