Today Academic Appointments are celebrating their 14th birthday!
Our journey started back in 2004 and the dream was to create a business built on the quality provision of teachers and education staff for long-term and specialist positions.
2017 saw investment from partners Solingen which has seen extensive opportunities for all involved and has allowed us to grow and be even better at what we do!
Due to continued growth and our commitment to providing an outstanding service, this year we secured a permanent residence in the Bradford area. With established offices already based in Leeds and Doncaster, our new location in Bradford has enabled us to respond to the growing needs of our schools and specialists and uphold the outstanding service we strive to achieve. Our goal is to expand either further with hopes to open additional branches in 2019.
Becoming Child Friendly Leeds Ambassadors in 2017 was another key highlight for us, enabling us to be part of the aim to make Leeds a better place for everyone growing up and particularly to address the issues and challenges that can prevent children and young people realising their potential.
We have now held our exclusive partnership with Leeds City Council provision for ‘Children Looked After’ for 6 years’ and hope to secure further partnerships so that we can expand our PROGRESS service to further locations across Yorkshire.
As a company we have always enjoyed helping local and national charities wherever we can such as Macmillan and Leeds Mencap, taking part and running many charity events over our 14 years. Last year we secured a charity partnership with Candlelighters, a children’s cancer charity based in Leeds in which we have run various fundraising events throughout the year.
We are looking forward to seeing what the future will bring for us as an organisation!
