    I have been with Aspire for a couple of years and have nothing but good things to say about Steve Delves who has always been friendly and supportive.
    When I initially signed up I had plenty of work, but recently I have had to accept work from other agencies which he’s been quite disappointing, as my main reason for joining Aspire was, so I could work much closer to home.

    I started working for Aspire Agency in September 2016. My consultants name is Ryan Stewart. Aspire Agency is a very good agency to work for they give excellent service and my consultant is always very friendly, cheerful and polite on the phone. My consultant try his best to get work for me which I would say 99% of the time I am working. He alway sends out email about timesheets to ensure payments are being met. Aspire offers a good rate of pay above the minimum rate. I would, and I have already recommended friends to Aspire because I believe that they are a brilliant company to work for and the best in Birmingham.

    An amazing agency . They have given me the confidence to work from 2 year olds up to year 3 and I love it . Steve my consultant is so professional but happy, friendly and supportive, I never feel worried about contacting him over any work related matters . The work keeps coming, it’s the only agency I’m registered with and I wouldn’t change that . Every day is a good day working for Aspires people 😊

    This agency lost the downloads of my original documents about a year ago. Approximately 6 weeks ago I rejoined but they took so long to process my re registration and by that time I had found other work. They don’t communicate well with their recruits, they leave you not knowing what is happening. They have had an original document of mine for 6 weeks and despite emailing them they have failed to return it. Not received a single apology. It seems that they think it is normal to treat people like this. Choose another agency.

    Working with Aspire People has been a thoroughly enjoyable and fulfilling experience. From the very outset, they have provided an efficient and personable service. Chevaughn did a great job in getting through the initial paperwork to reach the interview stage. Amanda Afzal has been a most excellent agent throughout my time with the agency. She is honest, friendly and professional. She has ensured a good amount of work and has been flexible and very accommodating for my own changing situations. Overall, a fantastic experience.

    When I started working with Aspire as a Cover Supervisor I was completely new to teaching. I needed to build on my confidence and gain experience. I am so glad I came across Aspire People because this is exactly what they provided me with. My recruitment consultant Amanda Afzal honestly is a delight to work with. Part of Aspire’s values is to build “the strongest of partnerships” with everyone they work with. I can vouch for that and say that Amanda is living those values. I share a very warm and friendly relationship with Amanda, at the same time being thoroughly professional at all times. I hope that this continues for me and I am more than happy to recommend Aspire People and Amanda to anyone.

    i’ve been working with Aspire for almost 10 months now and have had such an amazing experience. As an aspiring teacher, it has given me great insight and experience in the field. I felt that the agency supported me greatly to get that experience that I needed. One of the main characters in my time with Aspire was my consultant; Amanda Afzal. She made sure that I was getting enough oppurtunities for building my career. She understood what I wanted and my aspirations and tailored the work to suit me best. On top of that she was very considerate and looked after me well. After receiving a temporary short term placement by the agency at a local school, I was only gone and offered a job by the school themselves! So I owe it all to the agency and Amanda for the great effort and belief they put behind me for helping me achieve and reach my targets!

    I have worked for Aspire for about 4 years and Yasmin DeSouza has been my consultant from the beginning. She has always proved sincere, personable and efficient. I am always busy and she has long been keen to ensure that I receive a rate of pay which reflects my own proficiency. On the rare occasion, when problems have arisen, Yasmin has been extremely supportive and progressive in her response. She is a great mascot for Aspire People, an agency which I am always happy to speak highly of and recommend. Hence, there is absolutely no reason for me to work for any other. Thank you for all your dedication, Yasmin, and thank you, Aspire for setting and maintaining such high standards!

    I have worked for Aspire for five years and more recently my consultant has been Yasmin who is very professional and personable.
    She is obviously very committed to her work developing good rapport with both clients and schools.She works hard to find regular work and maintains good communication.
    I would recommend Aspire People and Yasmin to a friend.

    The thing that sets Aspire apart is that they are ready and willing to sort any problems that arise and are always available – even after hours. Emma Allen takes the time to get to know her clients and schools so that she can effect good matches on both sides. She has been supporting me for 2 years now and I have recommended her to 3 people who are as happy with her as I am. Thank you Emma.

    Yasmin, my consultant, has always been available to chat to in order to clarify cover jobs in schools which I appreciate. The schools I have been placed in I would have no worries going back to. Aspire have been very accommodating when it comes to my availability which can vary because of other commitments. I would not hesitate to recommend Yasmin and Aspire to teachers wishing to do supply work.

    Helpful, friendly, honest. I have been with Aspire for 1.5 years and have been impressed with the professional service and excellent communication. I do daily cover with some longer term here and there and have found my consultant, currently Tim Allsop, to be friendly, professional and efficient at finding me suitable placements at excellent schools. I would recommend to a friend without hesitation. Keep it up Aspire!

    I loved my time working for Aspire people and only stopped working here due to relocation. I found that my initial registration process with Ann Marie and Yasmin was warm and friendly, as well as efficient and professional. I was immediately made to feel genuinely welcome to be a part of the team.
    I found Yasmin to be very approachable and she always listened to my personal requests. I received a good amount of work from Aspire and it was through Aspire that I landed a 2 year maternity cover in an absolutely wonderful school. I felt very supported by Yasmin and able to ring her for whatever reason. You can tell she is passionate about her job and she was always so friendly and dealt with any issues I had extremely quickly and efficiently. With Aspire, you really feel you are a valued member of the team and you are treated like an individual and not just a number. For this reason, I will always return to work at this agency. I feel very appreciative of my time and experience here and the opportunities it provided me with. I joined Aspire after it was recommended to me by a friend and I would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

    I have been with Aspire for over a year. I was given local work in my subject where possible when I could work. Pay was always punctual. They are consistent, personable and always available to discuss any issues after a booking. I worked with Emily previously who was great but have now moved and contact with Simon, so far, has been of the same standard.

    Aspire People really are, all about the people! Personalised service, your consultant offers you the best of everything. The registration process was quick and simple. I was consistently kept in the loop about everything that was happening. Rachael – my consultant, based at Aspire- has been nothing but amazing! Truly dedicated to her role- she has a passion for finding teachers the best possible short/ long term work in schools. She has always been professional yet so friendly and warm. She took time to find me the best schools possible- ensuring pay was always correct and I’ve never had an issue! Coming from an outstanding school, I worried that I wouldn’t find a suitable school for long term, but within a few days Rachael secured me a long term position at a lovely school – 10 minutes from where I currently live! She checks in, ensures my pay is sorted every week – on time- I strongly feel that Aspire go beyond basic recruitment, they go beyond ‘ok’ to really make sure you’re nothing but happy and you find work- in a great school.

    I wouldn’t change agency now, not when I have it so good with Aspire! – highly recommend.

    I am a Cover Supervisor who has been working for Aspire since October, and so far I have had an incredibly positive experience! This agency offers competitive pay, tailored help, and assists with any work related queries you may have.

    On joining Aspire you are provided with a consultant, who notifies you of available jobs, checks your availability and provides tailored advice and support. My consultant, Amanda has been brilliant to work with, ensuring that I receive work which fits around my lifestyle, and provides advice relating to the different schools in order to assist with providing effective cover.

    I would strongly recommend working with Amanda, and Aspire in general to any supply teachers, NQT’s and cover supervisors in the Midlands area!

    This is my third year of working with Aspire. Emma, my consultant promptly returns my calls, is honest, fair and professional. Emma listens and makes me feel valued as part of the supply teacher/agency relationship. She always finds me work within my preferred age range and genuinely cares. Having an excellent, honest consultant makes a difference to the challenges of supply teaching.

    I started work with Aspire in 2013 and have been with them ever since. I took just over a year out as I had a baby but wanted to return to Aspire as found them extremely reliable and helpful.

    My consultant Yasmine goes out of her way to find me work suited around my days and distance due to the fact I have a young child. I get regular work and the age range I teach is always taken into account.

    I have never felt the need to join another agency as the relationship I have with Aspire and especially Yasmine has been fantastic.

    I would definetly recommend Aspire to a friend or to others.

    Rang to enquire about joining this agency. Recommend fellow teachers avoid. Was told by consultant AnneMarie that teachers are overpaid and she continued to be aggressive with me when I asked about the ‘pay to scale after 12 weeks’ policy stated on their website. Unbelievable to think supply teachers are paid below their pay scale for their first three months of employment with them.

    Not a good first contact. Rang one of the offices 3 times today – 1st time, person I want to speak to is at lunch, 2nd time they are ill and/or out this afternoon/gone home. 3rd call they are recovering from surgery and return date now known. There was no-one to cover for the absent person apart from someone who had no telephone skills – talked continually over the top of me at great length. Fortunately there are millions of agencies to move on to. A friend since told me they lost some important personal identification documents they sent them.

The attitude and approach of both of these agents has been first class, with a gentle but generous approach and very personable. The company also offers great rates for teachers. Very highly recommended.

I registered with Aspire Agency by contacting Andrew White he was very professional and organised. After registering with the agency within a week Andrew managed to secure me with a long term teaching contract.
    I am very grateful has I now have gained more recent experience and have become more employable.
    Thanks Andrew for all the support.

She is friendly and I feel she has a good idea of my strengths and teaching preferences. I have recommended Sophie and the rest of Aspire to everyone I have worked with who has been looking to join an agency. Having worked for several supply agencies, Aspire is definitely my agency of choice.

Aspire are the first and only agency I have signed up with…initially I thought I’d sign up with a few, but ive found that there’s really no need. Yasmin has found me regular work in fantastic schools, most of which are literally on my doorstep! Due to childcare arrangemets I can’t travel too far, and during my first interview i requested to be placed in schools close to my home. To be honest i thought it was a long shot, but a few days later she rang with bookings at two local schools! Always helpful, encouraging and very good communication from everyone at Aspire. Thanks!

    Yes I completely agree with the person below , Andrew has been a nightmare. He seems really disorganised and he’s forever saying I have work and then it’s only for a couple of hours and the pay is shocking! £10 for a weeks worth is not on and I can’t believe I’m still at this angenxy hence why im going elsewhere because Andrews service has been absolutely ridiculous. Spokes to a could of supply teachers that I met in a school and they all have the same opinion! Aspire do something about this!!!! Another thing which I have to point across is, when we met up to sort my application process, he was 20 minutes late !

    I am fuming at his service. He is disorganised and doesn’t give me a good rate of pay. As well as he barely gives me any work and I always have to chase after him. I’m not the only one who has had bad experience with him. Other teachers I’ve met at different schools have warned me about him. DO NOT join with Aspire. Especially if you have Andrew!!!!hes been an absolute nightmare and I don’t know why he’s even a consultant.
    I mean some may love Aspire, however my and other peoples experience with Andrew has been atrocious. Its a shame I am giving such negative feedback however I feel the need to get my point across to ensure others make sure they don’t have Andrew a White as their consultant!

As soon as one placement ended, I was given another school to work in so I was never out of work long.

    I’ve been working with/for Aspire People for almost a whole academic year now. Ever since I signed up with Aspire I haven’t had a week where I would be workless (Not including School holidays). I get on very well with my Consultant and I find they the staff at Aspire are professional and delightful. The pay rate is great and I’ve got no complains over that. Overall, I definitely would recommend working for/with Aspire People.

She has found work for me very quickly and is very good at finding me the type of work I want . The schools I have worked at so far have all been good.

    Aspire are professionaly spot on from my experience.
    I turned up at a local college to find that they had given me a great introduction and a clear precise picture of myself which made the interview run smoothly.
    I can always get help,feedback from my consultant Cassie Warren feeling confident in the way she handles things.
    Damien also very informative and on the ball too.
    You can relax,they are a great team.

    I have been working as a Supply Teacher with Aspire since January and was quite nervous about how much work I would get given that I do not currently drive. Julia has taken a lot of trouble to find me work in a regular cluster of schools. All of the schools I have worked in have been lovely, two of them being rated outstanding by Ofsted. Julia and the team are very personable, dealing with any queries I may have quickly and professionally.

    Julia at Aspire is supportive and friendly and she makes every effort to place you in schools to suit you. She wants to know if there are any problems and makes a genuine effort to solve them. As an agency, they make you feel part of a team, encouraged by events such as a Christmas drinks get-together – as a supply teacher you are often omitted from social events.

    Hands down the most persoanble agency in Birmingham, you are treated like a person not a number. The consultants are also most honest and pratical. Whilst always being solution orientated, they really do have your best interest at heart. Put simply, when you’re happy, contented and teaching it’s reflected in your work. Keep up the great effort guys.

    I recently joined Aspire in June 2013, I have to say they are an amazing team that really believe in your passion about teaching and push you towards settings and environments that you want to teach in. The fact that iv travelled so much around the whole of Birmingham within the 8 months of joining has been a great experience of getting to know the areas. I really appreciate all the hard work an support my consultant Kyrstal McCalla has put in being a new team member to aspire, she has really helped pursue my passion within teaching and assisting in special needs, i am able to talk to her without any hesitance as she is always willing to help and support me. However, not forgetting my first consultant Lee Lamburn who supported me just as much before he left. Staff at aspire really do come across friendly. They also pay you what you are worth higher than many agencies. Many of my experiences have been challenging that have made me stronger and confident as a educator/ practitioner. Every assignment that i have been set has benefited. I am so pleased to be representing aspire. :) :)

    Have really enjoyed working with Aspire so far. I have had varied placements in a variety of schools which has provided me with good experience. All the staff I have worked with have been very friendly and my consultant provides ample information about new schools/placements so that I am prepared for when I get there.

    Cheers!

    Aspire have been a good agency for me. Alan is my consultant & always has a lovely, friendly manor. The lack of work for me is probably my biggest problem. Driving out for one or two lessons isn’t ideal, but I guess that is the nature of day to day supply…
    Overall, a friendly team who I’ve enjoyed gaining experience and work with.

    I joined Aspire People at the beginning of this academic year and I’ve found them to be a brilliant agency to work for. I’m based in the Leicester area and I’ve had regular work at virtually every school in the city. Alan Hull (Education Consultant for Leicestershire) has links with lots of schools in the area and does a fantastic job in finding me work that matches my subject area. Alan has also found me interviews for long term teaching positions and has provided me with some excellent advice on how to progress my career. If you’re looking for a friendly, professional agency and want teaching work in the Leicester area, Aspire People is the agency to be with.

    I joined Aspire people for day to day teaching supply work after completing my PGCE and failing to secure a full time NQT position in a primary school.
    I then did day to day supply teaching in schools in my local area for 3 weeks which aspire were brilliant at providing. I was then offered a long term PPA cover role by a school and with the help of Mark Birmingham at Aspire People after only a few weeks of day to day supply. The school then allowed me to start completing my NQT on a class share basis after only half a term of me doing the PPA cover in years 3&4. I have now been offered my own class and a full time role at the school from Easter! I cannot fault Aspire in any way, particularly the help of Mark who was able to introduce me to the long term role at the school which I now have a permanent job at!

    I firstly got a job through Aspire last August, with a local college part-time, did my 7 weeks then got took on by the college! As was only doing 11hours I needed another 5 to come off JSA, I recieved lots of texts about jobs going ‘locally’ even though some were about 20miles away, but Hanifah (from Aspire) eventually found me another job doing 6.25hours, so have come off JSA, and the school have told me they are taking me on after the agency 7weeks finishes. Im really grateful for all the work done by Aspire to get me my two jobs, and would recommend (and do often) to anybody looking for work to fit in around childcare commitments. Thanks

My consultant Mark understands my strengths and has found both day to day and long term work in line with these preferences. I’ve also attended a training session at Birmingham City University, organised by Mark which provided excellent and innovative teaching ideas that I have utilised at school.

    I couldn’t have asked for better service from Aspire People. Very swift service in contacting me following my initial enquiry through to interview and finding a placement – both were what I was looking for, in first rate/supporting schools, which has now resulted in a fixed term maternity cover contract with one of the schools Aspire People originally placed me with. This, coupled with excellent, friendly service from my consultant Damon Hegenbarth, plus payment on time, gave me an excellent experience of Agency Work, from an Agency I would highly recommend and will most certainly work with again. Excellent….

    My name is Lawna Tapper and I signed up with Aspire People last summer. My consultant, Yasmin Desouza, has worked tirelessly, on my behalf, from the first! I can’t thank her enough.

    To fill up my week, she has secured two long-term positions (2 & 3 days per week) both of which are perfect. For the rest of the academic year, I know where I’ll be working, and being PPA cover positions, my needs are being met without too much strain.

    Despite being settled, Yasmin and I remain in regular contact, and any queries are promptly resolved. Mark, in Payroll, is also extremely efficient, ensuring that my finances are in order.

    So thank you Aspire, your consultants represent you well – Yasmin’s warmth, authenticity and efficiency make her a real asset to your organization – thanks Yas!

    My consultant, Emily Kramer, has found me plenty of work since I started doing Science supply in April 2013, I have virtually worked full time. Communication and support have been very good.
    Attended one of the training days at BCU, very helpful and nice to meet other supply teachers.
    Aspire website very good

    I have found my advisor Emily to be professional and very friendly. I found the training days excellent, and very useful.
    I haven’t had much work opportunity yet but its early days so I’m hopeful this will increase

    I have only just joined Aspire as a supply teacher but I have experience of several other teaching agencies to compare, I quite enjoy working supply, but I have in the past felt agencies place you, get their money and that’s it. Adam my contact on the other hand has been very helpful, kept in contact and helped me get the best out of the placement and keeps an eye open for the next opportunity. He has always been honest, easy to talk to and I feel that he understands the role and the needs of the supply teacher. Overall I feel that it’s a good agency to work for and would whole heartedly reccomend them to anyone.

    As you can see from the stars, I have been very happy with Aspire (and Sophie, who looks after me) since I joined them at the start of September. I have had a range of schools, some longer term work and one off days and I have enjoyed every day of it. I have been paid promptly, accurately and fairly, if my research is accurate. My intention was to sign up with a couple of agencies but even in the ‘quieter’ month of September I have had offers of more than enough work. A very rewarding, professional relationship. Thank you.

    As an NQT I have had a very positive experience with Aspire. I work many days I am available and I’m sure I could have secured a fixed long term placement if I wanted one. My consultant Sophie is brilliant, she is super organised, passionate, caring and always available if you need her. I have worked in a mixture of schools and Sophie is always keen for feedback. I feel signing up to Aspire after moving to a new area was the best thing I did and will definitely be back in contact with Sophie post maternity leave :-)

    I highly rate this agency and Sophie!

    Hello Phil

    Thank you very much for your feedback. I am very concerned to hear your wife has not had work. We have a number of Mrs Turner’s that are working with us and from our records they have been busy on the days they have had available. If you or your wife would like to email me on michaela@aspirepeople.co.uk I will investigate this further for you.

    Kindest Regards

    My wife signed up with the promise of lots of work, in the first couple of months she had plenty but now it’s down to nothing in the past two weeks she hasn’t had a days work and this is seriously effecting our finances. She has started looking for another full time post and we will have to put our daughter back into nursery. Please think before signing up to a company with false promises

    I’m not teaching staff but support, but it makes no difference to the excellent service provided by Aspire. I was taken on as Temp to Perm in my college, and have just been made permanent, no small thanks to the help of Hanifah and her colleagues at Aspire who are always there to help, are supportive and give great advice.
    I would recommend Aspire to anyone looking for work within education, whatever the role.

    Hi, Ive worked for Aspire people since May 2012, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it. I I had Tim from day one, he’s been superb, he’s really nice and helpful and and always has got me loads of work. I’ve also worked for James a few times and he’s lovely too. Aspire people is a great agency to work for and I tell absolutly everyone about them. Just want to thank Tim for everything and I know I still owe him pistachio barfi..I haven’t forgotten! Lol.

    I have really enjoyed working for Aspire, Julia is fantastic at finding suitable schools and seems to have a sixth sense if I haven’t quite gelled in a school. She works hard to keep me busy and fills my weeks in advance where possible. If Julia is off, Sophie does a super job of looking after me. Everyone at Aspire whom I have spoken to is helpful, friendly and genuinely interested in how I’ve got on. I love that they were really honest about the amount of work I could expect as an NQT in September, but they gave me a wide range of schools in which to establish myself right from the start. I think they are a super agency to work for, I have felt valued and appreciated throughout my time with them!

    I have just completed my first year with amazing Aspire!
    I have been amazed at their genuine friendliness, helpfulness, care and support.
    I think the system where you are given people who work with you, is essential as it allows an important relationship to build up. The two people I’ve been working with (Tim and Sophie) have been truly wonderful, taking the time to get to know me and what I want. Always being there for me, no matter how busy they are themselves.
    At the same time having to deliver quickly to schools what they want!! I think you all do an amazing job at Aspire!
    Also, I want to say how truly very very supportive , the payroll department is. I want to make a very special mention to Mark there, who has always been there for my queries even out of office hours! He has had the ‘time’ to listen to me, with understanding and kindness on numerous occasions! And been really very helpful and supportive.
    I really can’t sing their praises enough! I am really looking forward to September with them!
    I feel very blessed to be with them, and can’t recommend them enough!

  207. Hello Jaswinder

    Thank you for your feedback again. We really do care our about every single candidate and I try my level best to ensure my staff deliver an efficient, honest and personable service to everyone they work with. On this occasion we haven’t met your expectations and for this I can’t apologise enough. I really would like an opportunity to speak with you and ask that you email me your full name and contact details so I can get in touch with you, my email address is michaela@aspirepeople.co.uk.

    There are times when feedback from candidates doesn’t reach myself and for this reason we have introduced Aspire People’s Promise. This sets out what candidates should expect in terms of service from their consultant with a feedback loop so that we hear from everyone. On top of this our customer care manager emails our candidates working for us weekly, asking them for feedback about Aspire People and the service they receive. This gives us a chance to iron out concerns and problems. I hope you understand that as a business grows we do have to adjust and make amendments. Over the last 9 years we have grown from a small office where we all knew what was going on with everyone. Now that we have grown much larger and unable to maintain the smaller culture, we have implemented processes to ensure that no matter how large we get, we can maintain our culture of looking after our candidates. Again, every recommendation of this site is from people that have worked with us, we regularly ask our candidates to go to this site and give their views on the service we provide. Sometimes the score isn’t perfect and we use this to then help that candidate receive a better service. I would like the opportunity to investigate your concerns.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kindest Regards
    Michaela Powell
    Managing Director and Owner of Aspire People

    Unbelievably good agency. Aspire have given me the opportunity to experience a range of different schools and experience working with various professionals. I would recommend anyone to try these guys as you will not be disappointed. I was stuck in the worst job and school of my entire career and I was able to move on from this thanks to Aspire. Within two weeks I was with another school reaping all the benefits and getting almost double pay. These guys work hard and deliver to there staff. Don’t listen to the bad comments as I can honestly say they are completely wrong!, Thanks Aspire, keep it up.

Generally,any issues I have had have been actioned and responded to quickly and efficiently. My rate of pay takes into account my considerable experience and I have been very pleased with the service given. It’s a great agency to work for!

    I have been working for Aspire since July 2012. I love my consultant Sunita as she is very supportive, gets me regular work and even when I have had schools that are challenging she is very understanding, supportive and has built up regular schools that I can go to where I enjoy working. I believe I have a good work relationship with Aspire and I am glad I joined this agency on recommendation from other teachers who also found Aspire a good reputable agency.
