SmithCorp Limited awarded SiR’s teacher agency standards accreditation
SmithCorp Limited has been awarded SiR accreditation.
James Hodkinson, chief development officer for SmithCorp, said, “We are delighted that we have been recognised as a highly compliant education consultancy service. Achieving SiR accreditation offers reassurance to our client schools and colleges and enables us to stand out from our competitors.
“SmithCorp were looking for an accreditation that would prepare the company to apply for the CCS/DfE framework. When researching the available programmes, approved by the CCS, we liked the fact that SiR’s teacher agency standards were independent and robust. We also took into account that they were recommended by the NAHT.
“As we didn’t necessarily feel we would use many of the additional services that membership of the REC or APSCo offer, we just wanted a thorough impartial analysis of our working practices and that’s what SiR gave us.”
“Congratulations to SmithCorp” said John Randall, engagement director for SiR, “The company passed SiR’s general and teacher agency standards and is now an accredited education sector business.”
