How is being an REC member beneficial to schools?

We’ve been an accredited corporate member of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) for almost 10 years now. Our REC Gold Standard means that we adhere to the highest possible standards in compliance. At Athona, we believe we are ‘Affecting Futures’ and this includes the safety of children and young people in the classroom. This means that you can rest assured that we complete stringent checks.

As members of the REC, we are kept up to date with industry news, research and the ever changing legal requirements. We attend REC events and webinars held by sector specialists and are audited to ensure we maintain company standards.

How else are the REC supporting the industry?

The REC are working hard at improving the image of education recruitment agencies, creating awareness of agencies who do, do a great job and who do see the checking and quality of candidates as paramount in safeguarding young people and in sourcing inspirational educators.

Consulting Head Teachers and working more recently with unions, are just some of the tasks the REC undertake to develop a greater understanding of our goals in providing professional, honest staffing solutions.

Athona specialises in recruiting teachers for all age groups. Our friendly education team can offer temporary, permanent and supply roles.
