Announcing The Winner Of The Prestigious Launch Pad Competition
We are pleased to announce that the winner of The Launch Pad competition is………
‘Qsted Education’, who are set to launch their business in September 2015 will be providing schools, pre-schools, colleges and nurseries with the supply teachers, teaching assistants, support staff, SEN staff and nursery nurses in their local community of South London and Surrey.
The Directors of Qsted have over 20 Years recruitment experience between them along with prior Teaching experience and allege that their knowledge and commitment to the Schools, Teachers and Pupils will set them apart from their competition.
Working with one of the biggest Academy chains in the UK it seems that there may be some truth already in their assertions, with such progress being made before the business has even officially launched. That being said, it must be a refreshing change to come across a consultancy with such a distinct and ethical business model that claims to put educational needs as their priority in such a highly competitive industry.
With the average fees of some of the countries some leading Education Supply Recruitment agencies at 40% Qsted find this to be is totally unreasonable and believe this only serves as an obstruction when trying to service the needs of both client and candidate and ultimately PUPILS. With this in mind they are determined to keep agency fees much lower whilst offering the same high end, recruitment experience.
If the age old adage of ‘people buy from people’ is true then these chaps are off to a winning start. Personable, polite and passionate, they won our judges over with their video pitch and we are delighted that the winning prize bundle worth £15,000 has been gratefully received by the entrants as a major boost to their current business plan.
We are delighted to be supplying their first Website and look forward to working with them.
