Our Service

Here at KeyStage, our consultants collectively boast 80 years experience within Education Recruitment. It is this, combined with our first hand teaching experience gained in local schools, that means we really are the best agency to work with!  We use our industry knowledge to successfully place your individual personality and teaching style into the right working environment for you.

KeyStage understands the commitment it takes to earn your teaching qualifications and therefore will always pay our teachers to scale.  We also offer excellent support and training to ensure you are always happy with the service you receive.

Over the years, we have developed excellent working relationships with all of the schools in Stockton on Tees, Middlesbrough, Darlington, East Cleveland, Durham and surrounding areas, and can provide full time or casual work to suitable supply teachers throughout the school year.

Our Commitment

We offer an Introduction to Supply Teaching course to all our new applicants which will give you an insight into the world of supply teaching before you begin.

KeyStage also provide ongoing flexible learning courses for all of our supply teachers. We will respond to any needs you have throughout the term and organise training at our in-house conference centre.

From newly qualified teachers searching for a permanent post, to semi-retired teachers wanting only two or three days teaching work a week, KeyStage can find the perfect teaching position for you.
