Axcis is the leading supplier of special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) staff in England and Wales. We recruit special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) staff for mainstream schools and alternative provisions across England and Wales and offer recruitment solutions for short-term, long-term and permanent vacancies. Working with the broadest range of positions, our candidates include teachers, teaching assistants, therapists and school leaders.

Established in 2001, our head office is in London’s West End. We have since grown in-line with increasing demand from schools for the quality, specialist service we are able to provide. We have offices across the UK and continue to expand as more schools hear about us and express a desire to make use of our unique service. Many of our experienced team of consultants are ex-teachers or members of school support staff, so have on-the-ground knowledge of the sector. As a result, we are able to provide a recruitment package which reflects this in-depth understanding of what schools are looking for in the staff they recruit. 

We have always taken our responsibility to the sector seriously, and this is reflected in our professional partnerships with organisations such as NAS (National Autistic Society), Nasen (National Association of Special Educational Needs) and NASS (National Association of Independent Schools and Non-Maintained Special Schools). Axcis is not “just another agency” and we pride ourselves on offering a unique service which is backed up by a serious commitment to the SEND sector. During our time in partnership with these organisations, we have helped to fund numerous training and support initiatives which have helped to spread awareness and good practice. This goes a long way in demonstrating our commitment to the sector and our desire to give something back. 

Our client relationships are of paramount importance to us and we pride ourselves on working closely to build long-term partnerships. This is reflected in the positive feedback we receive from schools about our consultants and the service they provide, as well as feedback on the candidates we place. 

Our compliance process is extremely rigorous. Each applicant must undergo a full series of checks which conform to DfE requirements. Files are then re-checked as part of our quality assurance process before they are cleared to begin working in one of our client schools. We also offer an enviable professional development package, which is open to all Axcis candidates or client school staff. This includes a variety of courses over the academic year, including Team Teach, Non-Verbal Communication, Level 2 Safeguarding, Moving and Handling, Autism Awareness and Managing Challenging Behaviour.
