Turning education and skills policy into practice

Working with AlphaPlus

We are currently seeking to build our capacity in item and test development. Click here for more details.

AlphaPlus is one of the UK’s leading educational consultancies. The company can draw upon a team of over 60 associates, each of whom brings many years' experience in education, covering schools and post-compulsory education, as well as experience in many of the supporting agencies and government departments. We believe that the quality of personnel we offer is exceptional, and that the strength of our associate team is central to the success of AlphaPlus.

AlphaPlus associates hold a framework contract via their employer or as a self-employed individual and then receive an engagement schedule for each project they join us on. We undertake DBS checks on all staff and associates. As well as maintaining project contacts, we send regular newsletters to all associates and welcome updates on their new skills and experience.

We are always interested in speaking to prospective new associates in all areas of educational practice. We engage associates on a project-by-project basis, selecting each member of the project team (led by an AlphaPlus director) against the requirements of the project, using our knowledge of each associate’s expertise and experience. We strive to maintain excellent relationships with our associates, and we believe this is reflected in the quality of work which our associates repeatedly produce. Many of our associates have been working with AlphaPlus since the inception of the company.

If you are interested in becoming an AlphaPlus associate, actively contributing your expertise to some of the leading educational projects in the UK and worldwide, please send a CV and covering letter to Gavin Reynaud. We look forward to talking with you.
