Get to know CER Education


Helping educate the next generation. Quite simply, what we do and why do it. This is who we are and we believe this tagline encapsulates the meaning of CER Education.


As we rediscover our brand, our vision never changed – putting people at the centre of everything we do. We challenge the status quo of recruitment agencies every day and want to show that we aren’t a corporate faceless organisation, but rather a company that wants to build authentic and long-lasting relationships.


From early years to further education, SEN to leaders in education, our experienced teams specialise in making sure every school, academy, college, nursery or free school has the temporary and permanent staff it needs to give their students the education they deserve.
