"The Microsite provided a streamlined, efficient means of bringing disparate but necessary elements of research and preparation into one place. It then presented them in a coherent and attractive way to the outside world and as an advertisement evoked a pleasing level of interest from applicants. I highly recommend it to other Governing Bodies faced with the need to recruit a new headteacher."
Les Craggs, Chair of Governors, Dover Boys Grammar School
"Having been disappointed with the quality and number of applicants for previous adverts I contacted the team at Kent-Teach and was supported through writing an advert, job specification and person specification by one of their Senior Engagement Officers. I was also given an explanation of all the enhanced features that were available to me as a customer, many of which I was completely unaware of. As a result, a much more powerful advert was published and, even in the current challenging recruitment climate, I was impressed with the impact the changes made. As a small, rural school we don't have a large budget and we are not well known so we have once chance to attract candidates who are scrolling through other adverts so it was important to get it right. I firmly believe that as a result of the support received we had a better response to our advert and that any future adverts required will always be drafted with the support of Kent-Teach staff."
Stuart Gawthorpe, Headteacher, Bethersden Primary School
"We have recently had two rounds of Headteacher appointment following the resignation of our existing head. These have been dealt with by Michelle at Cantium Solutions and she, along with the rest of the staff, have been extremely helpful at all times. Various suggestions of the best way to advertise our post have been made by them and they have always been very positive and willing to assist in every way."
Mrs Katherin Daking, Chair of Governors Harrietsham Church of England Primary School
"KAH highly values an ongoing relationship with Kent-Teach. Together we have provided recruitment and retention workshops for school leaders and produced guidance to support schools in this challenging area. Kent-Teach have been generous with their resources and expertise and have shown a real commitment to responding to the ever-changing needs of schools. We look forward to our continued collaboration."
Kent Association of Headteachers
"Kent Teach has been a great cost-effective way for us to recruit to our vacancies across our schools in Kent. Elliot , Michelle and the wider team have been great advising on our advert content, arranging social media boosts and always being on the end of the phone to talk through any ideas or challenges.
"The microsite and social media boosts they have created in a short time frame has seen an increase in applications from suitable candidates and helped us fill key roles across our large and growing Trust."
Simon Arnold, Recruitment Team Leader, Thinking Schools Academy Trust
