Point To Point specialises in finding a PERFECT fit between teachers and schools.
When you choose Point To Point, you can be confident that your new teacher will be the perfect addition to your school.
Want teachers, for free?
Yes, really. The Department for Education (DfE) are currently funding shortage occupation teachers to schools across England.
You can currently appoint a Maths, Science, Computer Science or Modern Foreign Language (MFL) Teacher to your school, for free, with our support.
Endorsed by the DfE, Point to Point Education are experts in sourcing, matching and suppling well qualified and highly professional STEM and MFL teachers to schools all over the country.
Did we mention that this is all for free?
Our job is to travel the world to track down extraordinary teachers. The rare, precious, valuable, worth-their-weight-in-gold kind of teachers. The kind of teachers you want to fill your school with.
Our network is full of Early Years, Primary and Secondary teachers. We get to know them all. Then we introduce just the right one to you.
Don’t come to us, we’ll come to you.
From the UK to Australia, NZ to Canada, the USA to South Africa via Jamaica, we cast our net wide. When we find a wonderful teacher prospect, we get so excited we jump straight on a plane – or online – to get to know them.
Our first step is to schedule a time to sit down with a prospective teacher and have a face-to-face or virtual coffee. We have a general chat, ask some strategic questions and make sure the teacher lives up to the expectations set on paper in an interactive environment.
CV Flicking is Not Our Style
We stand behind our promise of quality with rigorous research and cross-checks. During our teacher recruitment process, we spend on average 40+ hours with each teacher.
We need to know our teachers have strong behaviour management, content knowledge, adaptability and meet our high standards.
We consider your school environment, location and OFSTED, in order to make the best teacher match for your school’s specific needs.
Point to Point Support System
Our teacher recruits have a dedicated consultant to guide them every step of the way. They talk once a week and cover our 28 touchpoints. These touchpoints include topics such as British Values, OFSTED, Curriculum, CPD and social networking, to name a few. The support and connections that we provide for our teacher recruits sets us apart and sets them up for success in UK schools.
Pulling Together the Paperwork
We do it all for you. Before your teacher starts, our Compliance Manager supplies you with all the required certified documents, including; CV, references, OSPC, qualifications, QTS, passport, Visa, x2 proof of address, Naric, SACE, DBS, List 99. Our compliance policy is comprehensive: we leave no box unticked.
Put the kettle on! One of the best and most rewarding parts of our job is coming to visit you and our teachers at your school, to check-in, in person. We fly all the way from Australia to celebrate the success of our teachers and offer any additional support needed. We know that schools and teachers alike value these face to face visits. They help strengthen our ongoing recruitment relationships and give us an even more in-depth understanding of the school’s present and future needs, so we can continue to offer an outstanding level of service and support.
Getting to Know You
Tell us who you need. We’ll find them.
Teachers that proceed to the interview stage are specifically selected for your school. They are well researched, prepared and have chosen to interview with your school exclusively.
Zoom, Teams, Skype, Hangouts, FaceTime, WhatsApp, Messenger. The number of reliable platforms to conduct virtual interviews (involving multiple staff in different locations, if necessary) has opened up a whole new way to tap into the global teaching talent pool. Virtual interviews help us as well as Head Teachers vet applications more efficiently, making it possible to interview teachers from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA, South Africa and Jamaica in a single day.
Interview between 5-25 teachers back to back, over a couple of days, via your preferred digital platform.
This timetable was created for a Trust in Essex recently. They have successfully recruited.
Face to Face UK: They’ll come to you
Where a face to face interview is preferred, Point to Point can select and arrange a school-matched Teacher for you to meet, interview and even observe in a teaching capacity, on location at your school.
Face to Face FIFO: You go to them
If you’re looking to recruit 10+ teachers, fly out and meet us in either Australia, Jamaica, New Zealand, South Africa, or the USA and interview a group of short-listed teachers face to face. Some school representatives enjoy visiting the country they intend to recruit a group of teachers from, so they can learn a little more about the culture of the people they will be working with.
We’ll cover your flights, accommodation and airport pickups.
Professionals with Heart
We LOVE what we do. And we’re good at it, too.
The Point to Point team is a group of professional, responsive, proactive, experienced, dedicated and passionate people.
We know the teacher recruitment industry inside-out and upside-down.
Visa’s, QTS, DBS, Pay scales, NARIC, OSPC’s, Tier 2’s….we’ve got you covered and we’re here to help.
Every step of the way.
Recruit with confidence knowing you’re working with professionals with heart.
DfE Funded Teachers
Free, for you. Our Maths, Science, Computer Science and MFL (Modern Foreign Language) teachers (from Australia, NZ, USA, Canada, South Africa and Jamaica, Germany, France and Spain) are funded by the DfE. An SLA agreement needs to be signed and returned to Point to Point, to claim your free teacher. We can walk you through this process.
You can hire a Point to Point teacher for a minimum 1 Term contract on an agreed daily pay rate, based on the teacher’s qualifications and experience.
Standard terms are weekly pay cycles, where schools pay fortnightly, with a two-week termination period for both parties.
You pay a one-off recruitment fee (payable within 7 days of commencement) and then place your teacher on a school contract and school salary from the commencement of their employment. Point to Point offers a 30 day free replacement period, in the extremely unlikely case that the teacher is not the right fit for your school.
