The Company: Aquinas Education Ltd
Aquinas Education is a unique education recruitment agency based in the UK. We specialise in sourcing, supplying and supporting all of our supply staff on a very personal level, making sure they share the same objectives and ethos we strive to give in our unique approach.
Saint Thomas Aquinas is the Patron Saint of Education- hence the name.
Our ethos is quite simple; we strongly promote ambition within schools and educational environments. We are ambitious for our pupils, schools and teachers and other educational workers in an ethical and modern setting. We want to promote the positive meaning of the phrase “to be ambitious”.
You only have to turn the news on, or pick up a newspaper to read the negative press given to children of all ages. This is where we come in, not only by supplying the best teachers and support staff on a regular basis, but by giving more to schools offering a reward scheme, continued support and also offering positive role models for children to look up to. Working within the education sector we believe schools deliver a very high standard of care and teaching to its pupils and we endeavour to match these aspirations by providing a highly professional service and the best staff available.
Profile: Jermaine Jenas
Jermaine Jenas is a partner with Aquinas Education. Jermaine grew up in Nottingham and realises the importance of education through his own experiences and beliefs. When he was asked to become involved with our business Jermaine jumped at the chance.
“Education is very important. When I was growing up I always enjoyed school and wanted to do well in my exams. I know the importance education for a child and how sometimes the ambitions and aspirations in children have are not always achieved. Working with Aquinas we have the opportunity to show children that they can achieve and do well through education, and that is our main aim!”

“Through my experience in education, I knew we could make a real difference. We stand out from every other agency because we genuinely care about our schools, candidates and the children. Not only do we offer the best personalised service to each and every school we work with and ensure our supply staff are extremely happy, but we make sure Aquinas are making a real difference in the community. This can be seen in our many fund raising events, helping schools to push ambition in their pupils.”
