Schools SEND | Smart Teachers

Trust us to recruit & supply the best SEND staff


Experienced in working at schools, colleges or other alternative provision, our SEND teachers embrace the responsibility of creating a safe, engaging and supportive environment for pupils with a range of physical disabilities, learning and language difficulties or social, emotional and mental health needs.

Support staff

We can recruit to many types of support staff jobs in SEND - from behaviour support worker, youth engagement mentor, autism support worker or personal care assistant. Our support staff are experienced in providing smaller group or one-to-one support for those pupils who need more dedicated time and assistance.


We have plenty of qualified and experienced teachers and support staff ready to work in long-term positions - anything from six weeks or more. All our staff are fully vetted to the highest standards through our robust safeguarding and interview processes, so you can be more than confident they are best-suited to your school and pupils’ needs.

We’re proud of what our
schools say about us

Our consultant brings a real personal touch and because she takes the time to get to know us, it means we get really good candidates all the time. I’ve used her in my last three schools and her proactive, no-nonsense approach helps massively. I barely use anyone else because she nails the candidates and service.

Richard McCabe,
Headteacher, White Trees School

All agency staff have been great and we have kept many of them on as long term staff. Our consultant is always great, he knows our school setting really well and sends us appropriate candidates.

Head of School, SMBS
