Thanks to everyone at ITN Mark Education last year. You all have made a positive impact, and I am astounded by the compassion and kindness you have shown. I think you are a fantastic company that is offering something very rarely found at other recruitment agencies. Things have gone fantastically this term, I am enjoying myself immensely and am very happy. Thanks again to everyone at ITN Mark Education.

"Paul has been a brilliant support from day one! He has been accommodating and prompt in his replies to all my concerns. My placement at St. Mary's has been very successful and enjoyable. The Manchester Team is very professional and informative, and their communication is very clear. And, the Payroll Team is very consistent with payments and any information they have sent has been clear and informative."
Anna, Primary School Teacher

"I have worked as a Primary Teacher for ITN Mark Education for a couple of years now and find the staff to be extremely supportive and knowledgeable about my employment needs. My consultant keeps me up to date with opportunities and provides me with useful advice to make the most of placements."
Laura, Primary School

"I emailed Leanne in the Leadership and Advisory Team about a job I saw advertised on the internet and the very next day we had a phone conversation to discuss the position. Leanne informed me all about the academy that advertised the job. It was clear that she knew them well and this gave me a good idea of the school. The day after this I had a telephone interview with Leanne. I felt that this prepared me well for any teaching interview. I strangely did not feel nervous as Leanne made me feel at ease. I was happy with the service Leanne provided, she almost felt like a friend, while remaining professional. I even received a Christmas card from her! Less than a week after our phone interview I was offered an interview at the school. Leanne was very supportive and made sure I had everything that I needed for the day, included class list with data, a seating plan, what my lesson needed to be about and even car parking arrangements! I would recommend using Leanne to find a teaching position. As a trainee teacher applying for my first teaching job I was very nervous but Leanne was there every step of the way. I was surprised how quickly I got my first teaching job. From the initial email to being offered my first teaching job was less than a week!"
Hayley, NQT

What the schools we work with say about ITN Mark Education

Have you had some great service from us, then we'd love to hear from you.

I have worked with Marc previously and that is why I decided to give him a chance because his reputation precedes him. He does what he says he will do, the staff are very friendly when he is not in the office and the calibre of staff he provides is second to none. Give them a try you won't be disappointed. 

Meersbrook Bank Primary School

I have worked with ITN Mark now for a number of years. Over those years I have worked with several different consultants. Each one has been very knowledgeable in their field and is able to offer some excellent candidates. Some, of which have gone on to become permanent members of staff in school. 

Catcliffe Primary School

"As Founding Director of Wales first 3-16 All Through School I wanted to draw supply teachers and other supply staff from a radius close to the school rather than having people travel in from a distance and having no connection with the local area. I also wanted to build a talent pool of local people that could lead to permanent employment when suitable posts arose. I spoke with several leading supply agencies including ITN Mark Education through their Operations Manager Clint Butler and also with the Company CEO and other Directors. Out of all the supply agencies that I met with ITN Mark was the only one that seemed to understand the concept and to realise that they had to invest their time and effort to create the pool of staff by working closely with us. Over several months we worked closely together to define our needs and developed a strong working partnership. All interviews for posts took place within the school rather than within their central Cardiff office thus saving staff the cost of travelling and providing a sound link between Clint and the Senior Staff of the school. Clint became a regular visitor to the school to monitor quality control of supply staff and to refine the process as needed. On the rare occasion that any problems arose Clint was always prepared to travel up to see us and to find a solution.
Over the next few years ITN Mark became our number one go to agency because of the development of the relationship, the quality of the staff provided and the outstanding support from Clint. Other agencies promised us much and delivered little, many just wished to be associated with us due to the high profile of the school as a new build. ITN Mark had a different approach of true partnership working. Several staff who started as supply did come and work for us over the following years.
I cannot speak highly enough of the commitment from Clint during this period, fully approachable and solution focused he was a great help in solving our staffing needs. Highly recommend"

Founding Director, Ebbw Fawr Learning Community

"As an Alternative Provision Pupil Referral Unit, the nature of our students can be challenging and it is always vital that when we recruit staff, they are right for the development of the young people. It takes a special person to work at The Academy of Central Bedfordshire and ITN Mark Education has been invaluable in placing top quality staff with us. The personal approach Gregg from the Luton Branch gave to understanding out recruitment needs and to visiting us to get a feel for the environment has been key to placing the right people"

Deputy Headteacher, The Academy of Central Bedfordshire

“I have worked with ITN Mark for seven years now, both at Oxford Community School and more recently at The Marlowe Academy in Ramsgate. When I need a teacher quickly or mid-year, ITN Mark Education is always my first port of call. Their screening systems go a long way to guaranteeing quality staff. What has impressed me most has been their aftercare. They remain in contact with the staff they have supplied and visit a few weeks after they have started."

Headteacher - The Marlowe Academy

“Gateway Academy has developed a close relationship with ITN Mark over the past two years. The relationship has grown so that the company is aware of exactly the type of teacher that will fit into our school. This has resulted in ITN Mark providing us with high-quality teachers who empathise with the Academy's ethos.”

Vice Principal - Gateway Academy

“ITN Mark offers a prompt, professional service with a personal, friendly touch. The supply staff we have had have all been good classroom practitioners with excellent attitudes towards both children and staff. I would have no hesitation in recommending ITN Mark to other schools.”

Secretary - Rawmarsh Sandhill Primary School

"ITN Mark provide a consistently reliable service. Unlike some agencies, they are interested in more than filling a position - if the person is not right for the job, they are willing to lose the placement rather than send an inappropriate person. The consultants endeavour to build professional relationships with a personalised approach. Checks are thorough and rigorous and a consultant emails details of these checks with each new teacher or teaching assistant sent. Many individuals who have been deployed by ITN Mark are now fully employed within the school."

Teaching and Support Staff
Schools and Academies

Thank you so much to my consultant who went above and beyond to not only help me secure the advertised position but also to secure a promotion attached to the role. She is an asset to ITN Mark Education, her communication and commitment are second to none. Thank you.

Samantha, Art Teacher

I have had three placements from ITN Mark Education. One as a Deputy Head and two as Head Teacher.

My consultant keeps in touch on a regular basis; she will help solve any issues or problems. She is easy to get hold of either by email, text or phone calls.

She is very easy to talk to and get along with; she provides an excellent service! I am looking forward to my next placement with ITN Mark Education.

Sharon, Interim Headteacher

My consultant was brilliant, she outlined the pros and cons of the role, kept in touch, was encouraging, answered questions honestly and was genuinely proud of my success. I have no hesitation in recommending her as someone who has a breadth of knowledge and understanding that will lead you towards choosing a great job. I am now working with some fabulous people and wonderful children thanks to my consultants support and her representation of me.

Conrad, Principal

I was very dubious about embarking on interim Head Teacher roles but contacted my consultant as I had been impressed with her level of professionalism and knowledge when I have previously approached ITN Mark Education to fill interim leadership roles.

She assured me that she would be able to source roles suitable to my expertise and experience. Within days I was successful in securing an interim post with the real possibility of a permanent appointment.

I have found her to be very approachable, knowledgeable and honest with a real flair for recruitment.

Deborah, Headteacher

My consultant was the consummate professional. She kept me informed throughout the recruitment process and was highly responsive to any questions I had regarding the post. She supported me right through to the time I commenced employment. I felt she always acted in my best interests and offered a warmth alongside her professionalism.

Amanda, Head of Leadership Development

From pre-application to interview and finally a successful appointment, the whole process was seamless in transition and superbly managed by my consultant. Regular contact and feedback was a key part of the process, early mornings, late evenings, whenever I wanted to seek support she was available. Colleagues in her team even sourced hotel accommodation at reasonable rates to help me decide on the location.

First class, highly recommended if you are seeking senior leadership roles in schools.

Graeme, Executive Principal

I am incredibly grateful for the high-quality service that was provided to me and ultimately landed me a senior leadership position, offering excellent career progression. From the onset, my consultant took the time to find out exactly what I was looking for and presented me with detailed information about all of the potential roles.

Leading up to and after my interview; she was always readily available and extremely proactive. She offered great positive support and feedback at all times. My consultant was more than understanding of my concerns and hopes of relocating from London to Manchester with a partner and young daughter. She was extremely supportive, and when I had some travel issues, she worked with her team to enable me to attend, even arranging for me to be collected from the station and taken to the interview.

Laura, Vice Principal

Possibly the best agency I have ever used. My consultant was absolutely fantastic! She really got to know me as a person and understand my career background. This went a long way in her finding me the perfect job!

She supported me through the entire process and was always available to talk to or text. She is an incredibly astute person that is very good at her job. I now use my consultant for recruitment because I know that she will find me the best person for the job.

Highly recommend and five stars from me.


Nadia, Headteacher

I received a fantastic personalised service from ITN Mark Education. Within two weeks of contact, I had a job and was working!

The attention and interest I received from my Consultant, was second to none which resulted in her having an accurate and clear understanding of me as a working individual. As a result of this and her knowledge and understanding of the needs of the employers, only very suitable roles were put to me.

I had two interviews with different prospective employers and embarked on a very fulfilling role as a Deputy Head of a large Secondary Academy, within three days of my interview.

The whole process, contact, administration needs, personal phone calls and client understanding, suggestions, two interviews, reference collection and starting in the role, took just over two working weeks. It was a very positive and productive experience. Thank you.

Rebecca, Deputy Headteacher
