Our history

History of the company

Bespoke Education Service Team Ltd (BEST for short) was founded in 2016 by an experienced teacher of mainstream and Additional Learning Needs pupils, as well as being a teacher manager within a Local Authority. The company was originally set up to provide home tuition for school pupils who could not attend for various reasons. Expansion into providing supply teachers and teaching assistants came about following several enquiries from Headteachers about the inability to secure quality supply staff.  

As a former teacher, the founder was aware of what calibre of teacher and support was required in the classroom to ensure teaching and learning was of the highest quality. And there the recruitment process commenced.

Strength to strength

As a ‘small’ company, BEST has gone from strength to strength winning several awards over the past 6 years and can no longer be considered ‘small’. Our reputation for providing quality reliable staff to schools is second to none. In the words of Benjamin Franklin:

“It takes many good deeds to build a good reputation, and only one bad one to lose it.” 

Franklin was certainly onto something vital with this observation – pointing out the fragility of reputation and the difficulty of building a strong one without many good deeds to support it.

At BEST we assess our own reputation among our schools, agency staff, communities and the stakeholders we serve. Feedback is sought on a regular basis from those we serve and is always positive and any comments taken onboard and acted upon.
