HR Services


Together for Children’s dedicated school and academy HR team is proven in delivering HR support and advice services across the North East.  Experts in school teachers’ terms and conditions of service, we know and understand your needs and the complexities of the school environment.

We offer two services:

HR Support

We recognise that effective HR administration is vital to the success of every school and academy.  We can provide all of your ‘back office’ HR administration services for staff during their employment life cycle, delivering transactional services in conjunction with your payroll provider.

We advertise vacancies on the North East Jobs Portal; undertake safer recruitment pre-employment checks, produce all associated contractual documentation, and provide advice and correspondence regarding maternity/paternity/adoption leave entitlement and pay.

HR Advice

Given the unique nature of the education setting we appreciate that schools and academies may experience the full and complex range of HR and staffing issues.  We are not fazed by this; it’s what we do and we are delighted that you’re considering our service provision.

We provide specialist advice on a range of issues including employment legislation, terms and conditions of employment for schools, safer recruitment, organisational change and the application of employment policies.  We will support you to manage your HR issues through the provision of information and guidance, attendance at formal meetings and quality assurance of investigative reports.  Support is provided over the telephone, via email or face to face. 

We provide model policies and procedures, which are reviewed and updated in line with current good practice and legislation. 

We offer a core and enhanced package, and have designed a pricing structure that is competitive, and transparent with no hidden costs.
