About Assure

Strictly Education partnership

Strictly Education and the NAHT have been working in partnership since 11th February 2013 as its chosen provider of payroll, human resources, property and health and safety services to its membership. Working under the NAHT Assure brand, Strictly Education will offer support services to the NAHT’s 28,500 members, all of whom hold leadership positions within schools, colleges, academies and early years’ settings. Initially the launch will be to regional pilot areas. Strictly Education was chosen by the NAHT, following a competitive tender and assessment process, because of its wealth of experience in the education sector, dedicated helpdesk support, online tools and tailored support programs.


Traditionally payroll, human resources, property and health and safety services have been provided to schools by local authorities. NAHT Assure is now offering them as part of its promise to provide its members with a range of services that have been designed by education specialists for education specialists.  In short it takes the risk of selecting a new supplier away from school leaders.


Russell Hobby, general secretary of the NAHT, said: “We want our members to be able to focus on the most important part of their job, teaching. Through NAHT Assure and working with Strictly Education, we will take on the function of quality assurance, using our national 'clout' to ensure that services are delivered in the interests of each school and its students."


Clare Cochrane, NAHT director of commercial and member services, also commented: “Strictly Education was selected because of its extensive knowledge of the workings and requirements of the education sector. NAHT Assure is committed to supporting our members with a quality assured range of professional services and we are looking forward to working with Strictly Education to deliver services that represent outstanding value for money.”
