Unlike other recruitment agencies, Future Education started as a passion project – founded in 2001 by a former primary school headteacher, Derek Attwell, and his wife Mary, a former youth worker.
Having worked as teachers themselves, they had first-hand experience with agencies in the area and felt that these agencies supported schools more than the teachers.
So, instead of retiring quietly, the couple decided to make a change and create an agency that supported individuals with their teaching careers – thus Future Education was born.
The business today has grown from a small shed to a local, double-storey office. In homage to the company’s humble beginnings, the boardroom is now appropriately named “the shed” as a reminder of how far the Attwells have come.
Derek and Mary, along with their sons (who were also previously teachers), are still at the heart of the business today.
The secondary team have been supporting schools in the South of London for the past 19 years, and Rosie Richfield, the secondary team manager, has been with the company for five years, and recruiting for 10.
“Working to support secondary schools and teachers is always such a privilege,” she says. “Recruiting for secondary you meet so many teachers who have specialised and are so knowledgeable. It’s inspiring to meet individuals who want to work so hard to pass that wisdom on to children.
“We often talk in the office about the teachers who shaped our lives, and a majority of us wouldn’t be doing what we’re doing if it hadn’t been for that extra special teacher who inspired us in a certain subject.
“To work every single day to help teachers with their careers, and to know that they are shaping the future generation of our local community is really rewarding.”
The team at Future Education is made up of four consultants and an account manager, so it offers the best support.
Sean Burrows started recruiting for teachers at Future Education almost five years ago, and has spent those five years supporting schools in South West London.
“Recruiting for secondary teachers and schools is one of the most rewarding practices, as you get to change someone’s life by helping them find their dream role,” he says. “But also, you’re helping children get the best possible education and achieve excellent GCSE and A-Level results.
“Over the past 5 years I have helped hundreds of teachers, teaching assistants and support staff find their dream roles.
“Getting to explore the talent, diversity and culture in schools across South West London is amazing, and there are some fantastic schools that are dedicated to the education of their students, and there is a wide variety of pedagogic techniques being used to maximise student attainment.”
Whether you’re a newly qualified teacher looking to start your career in secondary education, an experienced teacher wanting a fresh start or a senior leader looking for a new challenge in education, Future Education will help you find a fulfilling role that matches your career goals.
You’ll receive ongoing support and advice from its expert team, and its strategic partnerships and established relationships with secondary schools across London help teachers gain access to a wide selection of short-term supply, long-term and permanent roles.
Over the past three years, Future Education has helped over 1,300 teachers find work in 345 schools across the South of London.
Located in Croydon, the agency specialises in being local, supporting schools and staff in Croydon, Bromley, Lewisham, Kingston, Sutton, Wimbledon and other surrounding boroughs.
With a tailored approach, every teacher is treated differently to help them find a job that aligns with their Future goals.
