Connex Education has joined Lot 1 on the Crown Commercial Services (CCS) framework for education recruitment. The framework will see Connex supply temporary education staff to schools throughout the UK as part of the accredited framework.

Speaking about the new recruitment framework, Connex CEO Paul Broderick said, “the CCS framework is a fantastic addition to the education recruitment sector. It ensures that all supply workers are strictly vetted, meeting the highest standards prescribed in Keeping Children Safe in Education.”

Endorsed by the Department for Education, the supply teachers and temporary staff deal is used to recruit all temporary and fixed term teaching and non-teaching staff. It includes schools, colleges or other educational establishments, such as an academy, trusts, nurseries, pupil referral units, children centres or further education institutions.

Paul continued “As REC Audited Education Status Gold Standard holders, we’ve always worked to the very highest safeguarding and quality standards and so we were delighted to join this government initiative. It is comforting to know that our inherent quality position will now be mirrored more widely across the sector”

Connex Education is a specialist education recruitment agency with offices throughout the UK. It works with education establishments to place temporary, long-term and permanent staff into roles.
