Do you need staff? At MPS Education, we believe strongly in sourcing substitute and permanent teaching and support staff who are not just a match, but the perfect match for your educational facility.
Established in 1991, MPS Education are Wales’ leading and most trusted source of teaching and support staff. We work with schools throughout South Wales to find the very best candidates wherever they are needed.
Accredited by the National Procurement Service on behalf of the Welsh Government as a Preferred Supplier on the Supply Teachers & Educational Temporary Workers Framework, at MPS we have the best practice standards in education recruitment.
We are proud to have recently been named the Best Temporary Teacher Agency 2019 – Wales at the Corporate Vision Private Education & Development Awards. This recognition highlights MPS Education as a sector leader for substitute teachers and support staff.
We connect schools with the very best staff in South Wales. We know our schools; we know our teachers; and we understand that no two are the same!
We understand that you want the highest calibre of teachers and support staff for your school, which is why we ensure that any candidates we introduce to you have been professionally interviewed by a member of our dedicated team. Safeguarding children is our number one priority, and all our candidates also go through a rigorous vetting check procedure which includes:
- The Disclosure and Barring Service Enhanced Disclosure form is completed, or the Disclosure and Barring Update Service is checked
- Education Workforce Council registration is checked
- Identity and Eligibility to work checks
- Medical Fitness to work checks
- Qualifications and Training checks
- Referencing checks
- Employment History checks
Upon completion of the vetting procedure, all candidates then receive the MPS ‘Main Priority Six’ Card which places Safeguarding as the number one priority on entry to any school. We also advise all MPS staff to undertake Safeguarding training at least once a year, of which a register of attendance is maintained and thoroughly checked.
We provide our staff with an annual Continued Professional Development Programme which covers a range of topics including Autism Awareness, Pupil Led Learning, Using the Outdoor Learning Environment and more. We welcome any staff from schools that we work with to participate in our Continued Professional Development sessions. To view our upcoming training sessions please click here. To book onto any of the sessions, contact us at the office where one of our friendly team will be happy to assist you.
More than just Agency Staff
We are proud to have a long history of involvement with the local community and sponsor a range of schools, sporting events and charities. We have also recently donated playground and classroom equipment to schools and welcome requests to contribute to the school environment.
We can provide (free of charge!) a range of guest speakers from both academic and vocational backgrounds to the schools we work with. We warmly welcome requests for guest speakers.
At MPS, we are thrilled to be able to provide complimentary access for local schools to our Industrial Simulator, which offers crane, HGV, forklift and plant equipment training. Offering such a tool enables students of all abilities to experience alternative career prospects available to them.
