Clare Hooton and her team at Supply Desk Sheffield were a tremendous help in transitioning to the UK from Australia. I first worked as a supply teacher in 2010, and within a couple weeks they had found me a year long maternity cover position in English. On my return to teaching in the UK in 2016 I was provided with supply work each day and within a week I received a semester long block in Geography. The GPS contract provided me with peace of mind, and at each step of the way I found Supply Desk highly professional and extremely helpful.

Teach in is a fantastic teaching agency. Lizzie, who acted as my consultant, was extremely professional and dedicated, ensuring that I was always kept up-to-date with the status of my application and prepared for each step of the recruitment process. Lizzie really took the time to understand what I was looking for and was committed to seeking out a suitable role. Teach In do not simply throw any old job at you, they listen to you and research potential jobs to ensure that they find the right fit for you. To top it off, Lizzie even provided assistance with the visa application process! I have secured the perfect role and continue to receive support as I prepare to move to Kent. I cannot recommend Teach In highly enough. Do not hesitate to contact them if you are contemplating teaching in the U.K.!

Teach In has such caring staff.... Nothing is ever a problem or complicated in any way.

Teach In is a fantastic way to get connections with great schools, and it takes the hassle out of applying for jobs independently. I went along to the NQT event and both Sabrina and her colleague were helpful, friendly and encouraging. I felt very nervous when I first arrived, however they provided an open, fun yet professional atmosphere which instantly put me at ease. They were genuinely interested in my teaching journey so far and adapted the day to suit myself and my fellow NQTs. I was thrilled that it had been arranged for me to go and visit one of the schools that I was very interested in applying for, where I was able to meet the head teacher and the deputy head, who were both very welcoming and willing to have a professional talk with me about my time in schools so far. I feel that Teach In has helped me on my journey of becoming a teacher and I am looking forward to hopefully meeting with them again in the future. Thank you!

I just wanted to say thank you for everything you have done for me over the past couple months! Before I came here to Bucks I did not have the best school or support from my previous agency up in Nottingham. Therefore my confidence was at a low. After speaking with you and realizing that there were other schools much better, I first didn't believe you, but realized I wasn't ready to go home. I am so glad that you were able to convince me to stay in England for the full year. If it wasn't for your endless search to find me the best fit I would have gone home discouraged and had a bad opinion of teaching and possibly not pursued it further. For that I am truly thankful and grateful for everything you have done!
Now I must return home, and because of all my UK teaching experience I was able to land a teaching job in Canada. I couldn't be happier to have received the position! Thank you for everything you have done for me.
