In 2014, TeachVac was founded to address the increasing cost in advertising teaching vacancies – estimated to exceed £50M per year – and the lack of market information about teacher recruitment faced by both teachers and schools. The result was the creation of TeachVac.

TeachVac now has an unrivalled state-of-the-art vacancy matching system which is simple and quick and easy to use for both schools and teachers. Between January to July 2022 TeachVac processed 79,000 vacancies from schools across England, making it The national Vacancy service for Teachers. TeachVac also issues regular reports on the labour market and can provide custom built reports for clients on request.
