New branch opened in Carlisle

Vision for Education, the UK’s most trusted education recruitment agency, has opened a new branch in Carlisle to be able to service schools in the Cumbrian Local Authority.

The experienced team will be headed up by Darren Starling, senior development manager, who will be supported by Gareth Gaston, secondary manager, Tim Ayton, SEN manager and Becky Treweek, primary manager.

Vision for Education works closely with both its schools and teachers to provide the best possible match of skills and experience to enable schools to continue to deliver the highest standards of education.

Darren said ‘We are excited about bringing our expertise and unique way of working to Cumbria.

As a company, we work hard to provide, not only an excellent service to our schools, but also to support them to enhance their pupils’ learning environment and experiences through sponsorship of activities and regular competitions.

In addition we offer unrivalled support and training to all our teaching staff, including free CPD training courses to ensure they are always at the forefront of the industry, which is why we are fast becoming the number one choice for education recruitment.’
