Andy Richardson (Director):
Andy trained as a biochemist before transitioning into secondary education. He has amassed over 17 years’ experience within the educational sector and has undertaken several middle leader and Head of Department roles within schools.
Andy has worked within a consulting capacity to train and develop staff at various schools. Under his guidance, he’s been able to develop teaching and learning practices at several schools in order to contribute to ‘Outstanding’ OFSTED inspections and high quality educational opportunities for young people. Andy has up to date knowledge and experience with the current OFSTED inspection criteria and is aware of the high standards schools require in order to educate our future generation.
Andy is also a devoted parent. When interviewing potential candidates he often asks himself, “Is this teacher good enough to teach my own children?” Andy says, “A commitment to high standards is paramount to building a firm reputation for my business. I am always seeking high calibre candidates who have the same commitment and are passionate about educating our young people”. From a recruitment perspective, Andy feels that his experiences enable him to understand what schools need, what teachers want and what students deserve.
David Bailey – Director – AGR Australia
I have been working in the education sector for over 20 years and I’m currently based on the Gold Coast, in Queensland. I am currently working in the field of Curriculum Leadership.
I have had first-hand experience living and working as a teacher in the UK, and I can honestly say that living and working in the UK is one of the most rewarding experiences that you can ever wish to undertake. Aside from the vast opportunities a stint in the UK opens up for travel, it is certainly considered as a valuable inclusion on one’s professional CV.
I would welcome the opportunity to assist anyone who wishes take that step to widen their experience to teach in the UK.
