Randstad Education is the largest recruitment consultancy in the education sector in the United Kingdom. It was formed in January 2010 after the acquisition of Select Education, founded in 1993, by the multinational Human Resources group Randstad Holding. The company specializes in providing qualified Supply Teachers to primary and secondary education, as well as special needs, early years, and further education. Randstad Education also works with other members of the teaching profession, including newly qualified teachers, Further Education Lecturers and Heads of school. Randstad Education has 19 offices in the UK and is based in Luton.

History as Select Education[edit]

Select Education was founded in 1993 as a specialist provider of supply teachers to schools, opening offices in Edgware, Birmingham, Bristol, Leicester and Manchester a year later. In 1995 it began operating at a profit, and continued to expand over the following years with more offices opening in the UK. The company quickly became the market leader. During this expansion period, Select launched several divisions and subsidiaries at home and abroad. This culminated in launching the Verb Group of companies in 2007, with six members. The Verb Group was then sold to Randstad Holding between 2008 and 2009, being officially rebranded and relaunched in early 2010.
