The REC scheme provides successful recruiters with an accreditation that is recognised by teaching unions, local authorities and schools. It enables both schools and temporary teachers to feel confident about the quality of the agencies they deal with.
The REC Audited in Education award gives head teachers peace of mind that they are working with an accredited supplier.
