One Education has a unique approach to HR and people management.
Ultimately, if you need a specialist by your side, handling the issue, doing the work, working to your agenda, you can have one. You can talk to us in complete confidence and our advice will be straightforward and practical.
Our team of specialist advisers has many years’ experience working in schools. Typically, the team have supported on headteacher pay and remuneration, staff restructuring, recruitment, terms and conditions, contracts, succession planning, attendance and discipline, appraisal and capability, conciliation and mediation, exit strategies, investigations, safeguarding, policies and critical incident support.
A school was recently challenged by Ofsted to improve its performance and raise standards. The headteacher deployed One Education advisers to work with governors on a staff restructure and to manage competency and conduct issues in a supportive manner. Staff attendance problems were addressed sensitively and professionally. Training also empowered them to deal with people management issues consistently.
The headteacher found our input invaluable and credited the team for contributing to improving standards at the school.
Access to a relationship manager, guaranteed advisory time, expert helpline via phone or email, online research and information service, 24/7 critical incident support, school policies and employment procedure and a free briefing each term.
