    I would highly recommend Uteach. They made the moving process so easy on me and supported me both before, during and after the process. They have great events to introduce you to other teachers from Canada and walk you through every step of the somewhat scary process.

    Some missing info from a reference delayed work initially but I’ve been kept fairly busy since that issue was ‘ironed out’. I’ve now secured long-term work for September through Adept and look forward to working for them more in my teaching career.

    In the 5 months I’ve been with Adept I was given 2 days work in the last week of term (I joined the same week) and I’m currently on long-term supply after waiting about a month at the beginning of this academic year. Adept are totally transparent with rates of pay, hours and their expectations. I feel that Dave (the company owner) is more of a helpful friend than a ‘boss’ – he’s friendly, very helpful, extremely knowledgable in his job, straight forward about what needs to be done and is always on the phone when needed. I’m very, very happy I with the service I receive from Adept and honestly can’t think of anything I would change about my current time with the agency.

    Adept were the one and only agency I worked for in the UK. They were fantastic, they found me a long term position less than one week after signing up with them, this position has now turned into a full-time permanent position. I cant thank them enough! Brilliant agency!! :-)

    I can honestly say that registering with Adept has been a fantastic experience for me. Not only do I feel I have 100% support, I have also had the experience of working within fantastic placements that have allowed me to develop my specialist skills within exciting and dynamic schools.

    I must thank Adept for the assignments they have given me during my time with them so far, I can honestly say I’ve enjoyed them all. I was very happy to be provided with a long-term assignment within a week of registering with Adept and would thank the team for thr hard work they put into finding me work assingements and wish the company well for the future.

    Since registering with adept in august, i’ve worked every day this academic year so far. My first position came to an end at Christmas, but before the end of term adept had lined 3 interviews up for me at different schools, and in the end I had a choice of where I wanted to go in January. Excellent service, honest and friendly, plus they pay to scale! Can’t rate them highly enough!

    I have worked with various teaching agencies in the past. Not just in the UK, but elsewhere as well. I can honestly say that this is where I felt the most comfortable.

    I’ve been a supply teacher for around 3 years now and this is the most impressive agency i have ever worked with! It has been fantastic from start to finish, only slight weakness being that the quality of schools weren’t all top-notch but I appreciated the greater range of educational standards presented to me. Therefore, I declare that this is the best agency in South Yorkshire and is very recommendable!

    I can’t rate Adept highly enough, initially I was skeptical about registering with another agency, but David ensured me he had an ideal long-term position he thought I would be suitable for. Registration was thorough but made simple by David’s approach to the process, I was offered a rate of pay in line with my current pay scale and following the interview at the school which Adept had arranged for me I accepted the placement. I look forward to seeing what Adept has for me in September!

    Have worked for this agency my entire supply teaching career as this team worked for other agencies before forming Adept through professional frustration. Very well run by a very friendly team. Always have the interests of their teachers as a high priority and much trusted by the schools they service. A lot of posts are long term which illustrates the trust and commitment built up by the staff. Would not work for any other agency. An excellent professional organisation I have, and would, recommend to any supply teacher.

    In short, by far the best agency I work for. Highest rate of pay, the most work and (in my opinion) the most friendly and knowledgeable staff. Thankyou for your hardwork, keep it up!

    I’ve known Dave Wild for a few years now and I’ve worked for his agency, Adept, since a little after it opened. As well as being a friendly, straightforward chap Dave is reliable he clearly believes in upholding high standards. I’ve recommended his agency to several people and now that I’ve left and gone back to a permanent contract, I’d still recommend him. I wish him well and good luck for the future of his business. Thank you Mr Wild.

    Adept have been brilliant since I joined them, after completing a term of day to day work they managed to secure me an interview for a long-term maternity cover, the interview was a success and duly accepted the position. Dave is always on the end of the phone to answer any questions I have and gave me some good tips for my interview lesson. I’ve been paid to scale since my first assignment (£45 a day more than my other agencies) and moving my wages to my current umbrella company payroll was all done in one phone call. An overall first class service!!

    have worked for 5 agencies over the past 3 years and Adept is without doubt my favourite. I have been in 2 back to back long-term contracts with them since joining just over 10 months ago, I outlined at registration I only wanted long-term work and to their credit that is what they have provided me with. I would not hesitate to recommend their service.

    I registered with Adept in March 2011, shortly after they opened. Within 3 weeks I was presented with the option of 2 long-term positions for the rest of the school year. I went on both interviews and was successful with my preferred school of the 2, I was asked to stay on in September and now have been taken on permanently on a 1 year contract. Dealing with Adept was very straight forward, from completion of my CRB to transferring my pay to my current payroll umbrella company. I would not hesitate to recommend them and regularly do to all supply teacher I meet.
