Step Teachers

Step Teachers have been operating in Hertfordshire since 2000 and have been one of the county’s approved suppliers since 2014.                       


What this means for you

Whether you’re local authority controlled, an academy or an independent school; working with Step Teachers means you’ll have peace of mind that you’re working with an agency that ensures a compliant solution when recruiting staff.   From our Hertfordshire branch in Stevenage and Head Office in Barnet, we work tirelessly to recruit local teaching talent to ensure we’re giving you access to the right candidates that suit your school.  

Our place on the framework ensures we can provide your school with:

  Emergency sickness, ad hoc cover teachers and support staff

  Short-term supply options for interim solutions

  Long-term and permanent specialists

  Specialist and honest advice

  Transparent pricing and refund policy on placements

  Safety-first approach to safeguarding and vetting

Safer recruitment and vetting:

We take our safeguarding responsibility seriously and all workers are vigorously vetted before being selected for an appointment.

Our stringent vetting procedures have been designed to surpass the requirements placed on us by the Department for Education’s ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ guidance.  We’re REC Education members and have held the REC’s Audited Education Status since it was launched in 2013.  In 2017, we achieved an unprecedented 100% in the REC’s online diagnostic test; a first for any REC member!

The following checks and procedures are carried out for all of our staff:

  Full identity-check


  DBS Barred List Check and NCTL Prohibition Check

  DBS Enhanced Disclosure


  Right to Work

  PREVENT and Child Protection
