What schools are saying

"I now book my supply cover without picking up the phone! It's quicker, cheaper and more reliable than using an agency. I love it!"
— Ann, Headteacher, South London Primary

"The platform is easy to navigate, and their phone app means that last minute bookings are easy. They’ve saved us money without sacrificing the quality of staff we expect."
— Yvonne, Headteacher, North London PRU

"The fact that I can do it on my phone without having to talk to anyone means that I can arrange my cover for that day, and beyond, on the bus to work."
— Dulcie, Deputy Head, North London Primary

Our support team

We have former Teachers and platform experts giving you the best support, every step of the way. Although our platform puts you back in control, we're happy to help when you need us.


We work with all types of schools to help them find Qualified Teachers, Teaching Assistants, and Cover Supervisors for short-term and long-term cover. We also help to fill permanent vacancies across these roles.

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 £650 for TAs and £950 for teachers.

Zen Educate is a technology platform that connects teachers with schools directly. Zen Educate uses technology to create an online booking experience that delights schools and teachers at a fraction of the cost. Our industry leading software enables us to move ahead of the traditional agency model, saving our clients both time and money.

Our platform uses technology to match teachers with schools based on their availability, distance and specialist skills required to get the most qualified candidate for the school’s requirement. Schools are then able to contact and book those teachers directly on the platform. Our support team are on hand to ensure your profile is attracting the best possible matches for you.

Simply email support@zeneducate.com and someone will respond to you in 24 hours, or call us on 020 3870 4413.
