    I registered with them last October. They cleared my file immediately but came back on me at January. I had another assignment and I told them and I would call them in April. In April I called them 5 times, but they did not give me any work. Other colleagues in schools also told me that they are registered with them but they called them just to discuss about trials.
    Also, every time I call they are stressed and speak very fast.
    The only good thing is that they accept your umbrella company and they have online diary to set up your availability.

    Career Teachers has been a great fit for me. I started with them after I first moved to London and have nothing but praise for them.

    The training was very good for teachers who are new to the English system. I was placed in lovely schools and secured a long term position after a few months.

    Stuart was my contact and I was always pleased with the communication. He was extremely efficient, honest and very helpful. I highly recommend this agency.

    I registered with 4 agencies when I graduated in 2010 and have not even done a day’s work for the other 3 because Career Teachers have kept me so busy! All of the consultants are incredibly friendly and supportive (my contact practically mentored me through my NQT year!) and go that extra mile to make sure you are happy and that you have work when you need it, in your preferred year groups. The schools I have experienced are enjoyable to work in and the staff there support you and welcome you as one of the team. The pay is good (the same as others from what I’ve heard) and adjusted for long term roles.
    I’ve ‘left’ Career Teachers 3 times; twice to travel and once to take up a permanent teaching job and have always come back to them because they have been so amazing and supported me so well. I cannot recommend this agency enough!

    I registered with Career Teachers one month ago and since then I have been working every day. The consultants are really helpful and try to find the best matching jobs for me. They give you new opportunities in order to improve yourself and your professional potentials.Overall I am really happy with Career Teachers and I would highly recommend them to anyone that is considering joining this agency.

    I am generally happy with Career Teachers. My agent, Leighton, was very proactive and determined in finding me the long-term supply position I am currently in and I am extremely happy in the role. The agency has always been efficient and answered any questions I had. To be as good as other agencies I have worked with, I feel there would need to be more checking in with me to find out how things are going. Also, my agent recently moved on and I have not been informed as to who my contact now is. I’m also delighted with the services of Generate FS, which is not offered by all agencies.

    I’ve been with two agencies and Career Teachers pays more (though I have heard of other agencies paying even more).

    Work is very consistent and I’ve never had a day without work since joining Career Teachers.

    Staff are professional and helpful. And as an added bonus, the socials are great!

    Career Teachers is an agency which provides work that is close to your home and the schools that I have worked at with Careers have been very friendly. The consultants at Careers are helpful and available when needed. Careers pays a fair daily rate and provides consistent work. It is a pleasure to work with Career Teachers.

    This agency has a lot of schools on its books– other than that, it is a terrible agency. I worked with them for two years on a long term role and the only time they got in contact with me was over paperwork. However, whenever I wanted an answer about something, I would have to send them countless emails (which were usually ignored).Also, they don’t organize teacher social events and they will try to pay you the lowest rate possible. Just look at their basic pay for some jobs if you don’t believe me (120) for daily supply, whilst other agencies will at least pay 130. They are completely disorganized (probably because they are big and impersonal). There are a lot of other, better agencies out there, so don’t bother with this one.

    I moved to London in January 2014 and signed up with Career Teachers. Within a few days Career had arranged an interview for me in an Ofstead ‘Outstanding’ school. Following a successful year they found me a school best suited to my professional development as a History and Geography Teacher. My teaching practice has gone from strength to strength. The consultants at Career Teacher’s knowledge, relationships and advice in education is unparalleled in London. They have longstanding relationship’s with comprehensive, grammar and academy schools throughout London and provide excellent advice on the next move. I highly recommend Career Teachers to any teacher who is thinking about teaching in London.

    I joined the agency in January and have been very satisfied since. I had work everyday, although sometimes a bit far from where I live. Got a long term role just 1.5 month after joining them. The staff have been very helpful from the start, and having moved from abroad, they helped me understand and adjust to the UK standards.

    What started as a great service has sadly deteriorated with this teaching agency, once you’re in a long term job with Career Teachers, they don’t answer emails nor return calls unless you chase them up for a month. Some jobs I get through them are still at the same rate as 2 years ago and even though agency workers are supposedly getting more I’ve been given a rate lower than the permanent staff. Some jobs I’ve been offered the £65 daily rate but then they pay £60. The worst is them not getting back on time when you need to speak to them. Definitely shopping around for another agency.

    I have worked with Career Teachers since I have come over to the UK in January and have worked every day since. The staff are quite kind – a little unorganized at times, but over all lovely to deal with. They are very accommodating and helpful when questions arise. I have heard horror stories when it comes to agencies, but I have yet to have any problems with Career Teachers. I have, and will continue, to recommend CT to anyone looking to teach in England.

    Career Teachers have been very good with me, trying to get me work most of the time. Since I joined them two years ago, they only got one of the bookings wrong, which is quite remarkable given the amount of work they have in the office. The only thing I would recommend them is increasing their daily rate to match others agencies.

    Great office staff; honest and helpful, more than happy to negotiate rates with schools, really looked after me and I genuinely felt they were out there fighting for me. Had more than enough work whenever I wanted it; day to day, short and long term placements. (Those who complain that they didn’t get much work need to remember that schools will say “not again,” if supply staff aren’t any good.)
    Only question for me is their use of an umbrella company for payroll.

    I have been with Career Teachers for almost three years and I have been pleased with the service provided. They are reliable and and find work that meets your requirements. I have also recommended this company to other teachers who wish to pursue the supply teaching path
    Perhaps they might want to consider increasing their daily rate as I am aware that other agencies pay a bit more.
    A good agency to work for and the consultants are pleasant and know what good customer care is all about.

    They screwed up my paperwork repeatedly, wasted my time. People would email me asking for information they’d lost, I’d reply, then they’d ask for it again a day later. My agent was nice but a bit useless, and everyone else I spoke to seemed completely incompetent. Still haven’t been paid for some of the work I did. I’d call to chase up things they should have been processing, and I’d be hung up on, transferred around, or told I’d be called back and never was.
    Do not recommend.

    Staggering levels of internal incompetence which included loising my DBS twice, changing my payroll provider without any warning and failing to get references sorted despite repeated attempts by referees.

    Coming from Northern Ireland can be quite daunting. Both Aileen and Rob the SEN manager could not have been more professional, courteous, helpful and went above and beyond their title roles to make my first experience of coming to London an excellent experience. I was given the whole London experience and enjoyed each day and the experiences of being in a SEN school. I was given full use of resources and facilities in the office building. When I needed support they were at the end of a phone call. I had my first trial in a SEN school, loved the hospitality and next day was offered the job. This was an amazing turnaround and this is due to the finest details that Rob had put in place; choosing the perfect school for me and the perfect teacher for the school. I cannot thank all the staff that I encountered during my three day stay. To Rob and Aileen – I would highly recommend them as consultant and manager and will be passing their details on to my fellow colleagues and friend teachers.
    I left London knowing that I have a brighter future, extended friendships and knowing that I will continue to get the fullest support from Rob and careers teaching agency.

    Thank you again.

    I have been working as a supply teacher for 4 years. When I first started, I worked with 3 different agencies and accepted any work which came my way. Stuart at Career knew that I preferred to cycle and made an effort to find me work within 10 miles of home, as we got to know each other better he understood which schools I worked best in and worked hard to place me in those type of schools. This was good both for myself and the schools, who would request me. Because of this attention to detail I have worked exclusively with Career for the past 2 years, I have always had work when I needed it and it was almost always in setting which suited me>

    I’ve worked for Career Teachers since April 2014, to date, via my Senior Consultants: Lois and Rosie. During this period I’ve found Lois very, very reliable, courteous, understanding and most importantly, she is a true bred professional, and so too is Rosie. I’ve worked both in Specialist and the Mainstream Schools, all, as the CTs ambassador. Ipso factor therefore, I’ve got no hesitation recommending anyone that may wish to work with Career Teachers.

    Joined just before the Easter holiday. I’ve found Lois and Rosie a pleasure to work for. Both being very polite and professional. Work has so far being regular with my week normally consisting of 4-5 days in schools most being local which has been extremely useful considering I currently have childcare commitments both before and afterschool. I would happily recommend career teachers to anybody who asked.

    Have worked for Career Teachers agency since November 2014. Found the agency to be professonally and efficently organised. They have always dealt with any issues quickly and to my satisfaction. I have been interviewed by many agency staff over my employment years and would rate this agency very highly overall. Most importantly, promises were kept albeit at interview or therafter, a feature that many other agencies do not often fully adhere to. In effect, I would recommend this agency to you without hesitation.

    I have been pleased with the agency in the past 8 months I have been with them. They have provided me with daily supply teaching when I have requested it. The schools are mostly fine and the staff always welcoming and helpful. A couple of schools have had challenging behaviour but you are never asked to go back if you let the agency know your feelings. Josh is friendly and honest and where occasionally there has been a problem he has sorted it out fairly and promptly.My only gripe is that the rate of pay could be higher to bring it in line with other top agencies. I recommend Career Teachers.

    When I moved to London, I signed up with Career Teachers and have not been disappointed. On day to day supply to begin with, I always had ample time to reach the school on time and when I didn’t like a school, they didn’t insist on sending me back (like other agencies do sometimes). They found me a long-term cover in November in a lovely school that has taken on to help me complete one term of my NQT year. All in all, very satisfied with everyone I can spoke to or dealt with at Career Teachers.

    I have had more than enough work since I joined this agency. The types of schools have varied though understandably most london schools have challenging behaviour anyway. I have also been willing to travel to various distances and this had increased my choice of schools. The customer service had been reliable. Most importantly is the fact that the agency had a good background knowledge of the schools. This obviously prepared me better for what to expect.

    I applied for work relatively late with career teachers, and they were still able to find me suitable work very quickly and efficiently. Unlike the last agency I worked for, they regularly checked to see how I was doing. Even when my agent changed, she visited the school and introduced herself to me. They seem like tiny things, but it has made me happier to work for An agency.

    Good agency to work with.
    The schools they sent me to were good and one thing I really appreciate is how the agency tried from the start to find me one school where I would settle down and be able to work on the long term.
    I started working with Careers Teachers in October 2014 (not the best season to find employement in schools as most of the positions are being filled throughout summer until end of september and start again for January)YET they found me withing 2 weeks a school i liked and close by my house.
    Contrary to most agencies I work with they didnt spend their time just sending me on daily supply roles which i am grateful for!

    The only issue is the pay that is quite below what i used to get from other agencies but you can’t have it all and for me the quality of a school comes first!

    I have been working for Career Teachers for approximately 18 months. Having been in one school for the last 15 years it was a huge change to undertake. The staff at Career teachers made me feel welcome and helped me with every little thing. They found me day to day work initially in a variety of schools and always made certain to check that I was faring well.
    After only a few months I was entrusted with a longer term placement, which I enjoyed a great deal. They listened to what I was asking for and ensured that my requirements as well as those of the schools were met.
    I am now in a one year placement and very much enjoying everything I am doing.
    Without Career Teachers’ support it would have been much harder for me to return to work. They are king, caring and considerate and always have a happy and enthusiastic manner whether on the phone or face to face. If you’re looking for an agency that cares you need look no further.

    The staff at Career Teachers have undoubtedly exceeded my expectations as a teaching agency. Work has always been available to me when I’ve desired it, and my consultants have worked conscientiously to ensure that I am happy. The rate of pay is definitely competitive to that of other agencies, as I have found out when conversing with teachers in various schools. While certain schools (and students) present some challenges, the staff at Career Teachers worked tirelessly to find the perfect school for me! Overall, I couldn’t be happier with the services Career Teachers has provided.

    I’ve been with career teachers since January 2015 and all has been simple and easy, including registration. We spoke about what I was looking for and they have placed me in the best school I have worked in so far. I would definitely recommend them.

    The only reasons why I don’t give them a 9 or a 10 are:
    a) I am being approached by many agencies about work for September but career teachers hasn’t talked to me about possible schools yet;
    b) My rate of pay is low (£150) for my subject and experience.

    Again, I would certainly recommend the agency.

    Having come over from Ireland with a different agency, things didn’t work out and I was referred to Career Teachers.
    I really am very surprised with some of the comments on here. For me, Career Teachers have been nothing but helpful from start to finish.
    Firstly, they listened to what I was looking for and Richard found me a really lovely school. It was a challenging but class experience.
    I got a great rate of pay and the one or two times I had a query they were dealt with really quickly.
    I really would recommend people working with Career Teachers.

    My experience has been that they care more about their commission than their supply workers. God forbid if you are not able to work half a day due to other unavoidable committments! Its like they forget that they’re dealing with people and not robots!! Rather than understand, they threaten and bully, some subtle, some not so.

    After graduating from a Canadian university, I was nervous about moving across the ocean and teaching in London schools. But my nerves started to ease when I met the staff at Career Teachers. The orientation was helpful; the people were friendly.

    I started out with supply work to avoid ending up at a school that I might be unhappy with. I highly recommend doing this to get a feel for multiple schools before committing to one in particular. It felt as though I had this huge team of people trying to find me work on a day-to-day basis. There were literally four staff members that found me work at one point or another. And even when permanent job offers were coming in, they all respected my wish to continue with supply work until I felt more comfortable taking something long-term. Eventually I received an offer from my favourite school.

    Without Career Teachers I would not have ended up where I did. For that I am so grateful to them. I don’t know what other agencies are like, but I do know that Career Teachers gave me everything I could have wanted and more. They have an awesome staff and they make their teachers feel like the priority. The whole process with was super smooth while with Career Teachers. I would have no hesitation recommending them to another teacher.

    AN ABSOLUTE VILE AGENCY! Disgusting manners, disgusting attitude and just disgusting overall. They psychologically bullied me and emotionally blackmailed me. I applied for a permanent position at a school after really enjoying my time there when I worked there for a few months through the agency and they threw a fit because I wanted time off from a short term role somewhere to go for an interview I was offered. The consultant goes ‘I can’t wait for the school you applied for to ask for reference’ implying that he wants to give me a bad name. This agency will ruin your life if you join them. Evil, condescending and they do not look after their employees.

    A terrible agency that promises a lot. Books people into trial days for the wrong levels and proceeds to get defensive with no feedback whatsoever. What is more, after telling them you’re not interested in further contact, they continue to spam you with offers. When one replies, they never come back to you. A generally hypocritical agency that doesn’t have the level of service required. A lot of promises for far off locations that no one else wants to travel to.

    While there are a couple of decent people working there- most of their adverts are inaccurate and misleading – avoid if you want to progress your career.

    When I started work with Career Teachers I thought they were excellent, very personable and my first few experiences with their schools were great. However, soon after this I began to have several issues starting with this agency ‘misplacing’ my DBS money, yet not telling me this until 3 weeks later (when I had asked why I hadn’t received it yet). I then was manipulated into attending an interview for a so-called ‘great’ school where I was guaranteed a job, yet I was misinformed of the time of the interview, the ability of the students and the general set up of the school. I tried calling and emailing the agent at Career Teachers numerous times to receive feedback from the school but was ignored. The final straw for me however, was receiving a very condescending call from one of the agency staff informing me that a school had complained that during one of my classes the students were ‘doing nothing’ when she walked in. I have no recollection of this (most supply teachers will understand its hard to keep a class on task for the entire lesson) and explained so, yet the agent continued to patronize me and attacked me for taking a day off one of her schools to attend an interview (as mentioned above). Definitely would not recommend this agency, very disappointed with their lack of professionalism.

    I’ve had a horrible experience thus far with Career Teachers, I was talked into coming over in November because they had lots of work. I was told that I would be working 4 days a week, 5 if I wanted and that there was no lack of work. I’ve been here for a month now and have only been booked for 12 days. Most weeks I only get 1/2 days and rarely work a full day, that being said its not enough to move here from another country and be able to afford living here. I would not ever recommend this agency to anyone find one that offers guarantee work.

    I also informed them that I was interested in a long term position. I have only had 1 observation yet they have plenty of jobs posted online that they are not putting me forward for. It has been a very frustrating experience and not one that I was expecting.

    This agency promises you lots of work but does not deliver. Despite promises of work and several suitable jobs advertised on their website,there is never any work. When you apply for an advertised position, you receive no feedback. All you get is an acknowledgement.Total waste of time to register as not given any work.In addition, nobody seems to listen to what you say so you end up repeating the same thing to different people. The only thing I got from this agency was frustration and disappointment.

Orientation was extremely helpful and really prepared me for my first day of school.

    For the most part, they are a decent agency. The only negative criticism I have is for one of their consultants. On numerous occasions this particular consultant has sent me out to the wrong school, booked me in for a job when the school actually didn’t need me, promised me more pay for a really tough school -so that I would accept the job- only to not follow through with her promises. Their clientele list isn’t so great either – a lot of rough schools! They will tell you beforehand how ‘lovely’ and ‘wonderful’ the school is, but when you get there it’s a whole different story!

    I have nothing but glowing remarks to say about this agency. They supported me and had my paper work finished and ready by the time I arrived in the UK. I started teaching the day after my induction. They are fantastic to talk to about anything and they make every effort to make sure you are happy and supported. I have had work for the entire time I have been working for them and they found me a great long term job and negotiated the pay for me.
    Without a doubt this my favourite agency and I would not hesitate to recommend to others.

    Arrived in London having already spoken to career teachers and their Australian agency knowing I was going to have regular work and I was not disappointed. Although some schools were a little rough I have had work every single day I have been in London, so for 6 months so far. Have found the agency to be extremely personable and have enjoyed my overall experience. Would definitely recommend them to all my teaching friends back home.

    I was very fortunate in finding a full time position through Career Teachers in my 2nd week in London, though I missed their calls & was horribly sick. The agency has always been supportive, friendly and diligent. though it would be great if the pay was higher for TA’s. Thank you for all your help so far. I would definite recommend this agency.

    When I arrived in London Careers signed me up very quickly and with no fuss. Within a week of the new school year I was working. Since then I have had full weeks of work through them without any trouble. On the whole most of the schools I go to are within a decent travelling distance from my home.

    All of the staff are very nice and helpful and I would reccomend this agency without hesitation.

    I was very pleased with the amount of work I was first getting but it slowly dropped. The rate of pay could be little higher and there should be some kind of review so that you can have a pay increase after 6 months if your work is to the appropriate standards. I found that most of the schools I have been to are very friendly and welcome supply teachers in. I like how each agent knows who they are talking to how hard they try to get people work. I would like to get more feedback from agents regarding trial days as how am I going to improve if you do not know what went wrong.

    I work with two agencies and Career Teachers have by far provided me with the most work since I became a supply teacher. My experience is only positive, it may help that I’m prepared to give any school or year group a go, I can’t remember turning down a school although given a choice I’d naturally plump for my favourite. Generally though the schools and I have been good matches and I’ve been fortunate to get several repeat visits and also a regular gig of a couple of days a week for a few months. My contact knew I was interested in full-time positions and whilst not his main area of responsibility kept me informed of any permanent vacancies in my area, arranging observation mornings and meetings with respective Heads. When my main contact has been away or busy then the other members of the team stepped in seamlessly and gave the same quality of service I’m used to. Overall it has been a pleasant and rewarding experience (I’m going full-time in September at a school I temped at via Career Teachers) and Career Teachers will certainly be the first number I dial if I ever go back into supply or part-time. Well done chaps you’ve made my bank manager and consequently my wife very happy!

    I really only have good things to say about Career Teachers. Jess was amazing in assisting me with all the things I needed when moving to London from Australia. They helped with my bank account, finding a place to live and provided me with work straight away. The orientation was excellent and was a great introduction to the UK School System and they were helpful even with the small things like making sure we didn’t say Australian words like ‘pants’ instead of ‘trousers’. :)

    I signed up with two agencies, because this was what was suggested to me by someone who was doing supply in 2010. She said she needed two agencies in order to get enough work, but in the most part I have actually found it really difficult juggling the two. There have been a few patches where there hasn’t been too much work available, but Louise, Dave and Matt are always on the look out and try to keep you informed. Career are really good at trying to give you your preferences too i.e. I much prefer KS1 and Foundation and very rarely have I been given KS2 classes.

    I have predominantly worked in East and West London and some schools have been amazing and others really challenging. Career are really good when it comes to you not wanting to go back to a school for any reason. I have only had to do this once.

    Other agencies do offer ‘Guaranteed Supply Contracts’ though, which is something I think this agency should consider to ensure teachers do not go with other agencies simply for the peace of mind of always getting work. This is what I have been offered with another agency for September 2012.

    I would definitely recommend Career Teachers!

    I am pleased with the amount of work they found me. The only time I did not work was when I didn’t want to work. Overall, the was only two days that I wanted to work, but didn’t. These days were right after the holidays. The staff is very caring and attentive to needs. Although the payroll service that they suggest is not fantastic, the agency itself is very good. They have excellent schools and mediocre school. I have never been in a school where I did not feel supported as a supply teacher. They have also offered me on multiple occasions a chance to work long term in one school

In all my dealings with the staff at Career Teachers I’ve been treated well and any issues have been resolved quickly.

    Careers signed me up before I left Australia. However, when arrived I received zero work. After badging them I started to get regular work for the term. Most schools were not the nicest places. I find the consultants really play favourites though. I have a friend also registered with this agency and they get work every day and early calls. I find these days I barely get work and when I do it is extremely late calls and I have already accepted work with other agencies. They are so-so.

    I have recently went back to working day to day supply, and Career has gotten me work even thought this is the ‘slow season’ (end of Easter hols to end of the year). Even if I can’t get the opportunity to have a day of teaching, they do give me a call and give me invigilator work. As I see it, some money is better than no money. I know most of the consultants and they are always great and return your phone calls promptly. I’m in good hands.

    I signed up with Career Teachers over a year ago back in Australia, they were fantastic in helping me get ready for my big move. Once I arrived in London they helped me set up a bank account and had work waiting. I also found the orientation fantastic as not only did I learn about the UK school system I made fabulous friends who I still keep in contact with and see on a weekly basis now. Career have provided me with plenty of work (I have thought about joining other agenices but haven’t had to). The quality of schools are great, to this day after many different schools and classes I am yet to attend a school that I would not return to, while some days are tough it is often due to that class not the school. I find the staff to be very helpful and friendly and Careers also regularly organise social events which are a great way of meeting new people and making new friends. I would highly recommend Career Teachers to anybody that is looking for a Teaching Agency.

    I have been working for Career Teachers for 3 years and they provide a service that is second to none! In the past, I have worked for most of the main teaching agencies, yet none compare to Career Teachers! NONE! The Consultants are friendly, supportive, not pushy, never rude, respectful and honest with ALL that they do. Whenever I have a query, they provide an answer straight away or by the end of the day. There is NEVER a problem in getting work as I have had work throughout the time I have been with them. They always provide me with work within my preferred North/East London area and they have NEVER forced me to travel beyond my preferred zones. Louise, Becky, Jo, Stuart and Dave have ALL been so supportive in terms of providing me with a constant flow of work, that I remain loyal to them. I have never felt a need to leave Career Teachers, so I believe they are stuck with me for life!!!!! So if you are looking to join an agency, my advice would be join Career Teachers as they are a cut above the rest!

    I have been very pleased with my experience with Career Teachers so far. I had signed up with another agency as well, but decided to stick with Career Teachers as the consultants are very easy to work with. They really do try to find schools in your local area (and I have moved to different locations) and I have been lucky in being sent to schools fairly close by, so travel time hasn’t been a great struggle. Signing up with the agency was a quick procedure and the Canadian team is fantastic. Calls are always answered and any queries are taken care of right away. Great agency!

    Since day one, Career Teachers has worked extremely hard to ensure that my working experience here in the UK is stress-free, comfortable and credible. Moving and working in a new country is a very scary process and the agents at Career really made it easy for me to ease into it. I was working with two different agencies but the majority of work came from Career Teacher. Everyday they worked hard to ensure that I had work for the day. They not only provided me with work on a daily basis but also supported me, listened to my concerns and made sure I was getting the best out of my working experience.

    I would strongly recommend this agency to anyone thinking of working as a teacher in the UK. Their professionalism and caring nature made it very easy to depend on them. I look forward to continuing my journey with Career and can guarantee that they will continue to deliver A1 service. Thanks Career!!!

    Career Teachers is an excellent agency.

    As an overseas trained teacher, I find that the team responds well to my teaching needs and concerns. They have been able to find me work every day when I first started as a supply and kept me updated with long term opportunities. I am happy at my current long term placement and am glad they have introduced me to the school.

    Only disappointment would be the promise of a flight refund after working twenty full days with them– It has been four months now and I’ve yet to receive this refund, even after following up with the team several times.

    Moving down South from up North was a difficult transition financially but Career Teachers kept me ticking over for the first couple of months. They were helpful and considerate when it came to placing me in schools which were easily accessible and roles that matched my strengths. I was comfortable being honest with my consultant and if I turned down a role I didn’t fancy for whatever reason, she was understanding and continued to offer me more suitable roles. Career Teachers then got me a long term position in a school I love. I have been in the same role since January, which has given me security. I’m confident that Career Teachers will come up with the goods in the future also. I’m very happy with my experience with this agency.

    Working with Career Teachers has been a very interesting experience. I have been a teacher of MFL all my life, although in a different country. Career teachers were the first to really contact me, after having sent hundreds of CV everywhere. I am thankful for having seen my potential as a MFL teacher in the British system. Their specialists are in fact a group of patient, available and caring people that provide a really personalized service. In fact, the Customer Service is so good that I manage to feel part of the team and doing what I can not to let them down. I have been doing cover work but I long to have my own classroom, my own students and my own lessons. I feel confident that Career Teachers will help me to get there.

    The costumer service at Career Teachers is outstanding. Supply teaching is not an easy job and when people on the other end of the line make you feel valued and genuinely care about your needs, it is a much better start to the day, everyday. The rate of pay is negotiable and it is important to keep a check and see if pay may be raised after a while to reward your loyalty and good services. As far as the quality of the schools is concerned, Career Teachers’ advisers are always very honest and supportive of your decisions. They do deal with some challenging school in London but that is only the nature of this area. They will warn you before and ask how comfortable you are with it and I think they know very well not to consider certain individuals for schools that are too far away from their ideals. I would recommend this agency warmly above all others as my experience has been very positive.

    My name is Jessica and I am 24 years old from Australia. I finished my teaching degree in Melbourne last year before deciding to relocate to live in London. I was extremely nervous to come and teach in the UK, especially as I was a NQT with no previous teaching experience. I joined Career Teachers before I left Australia and they have been absolutely fantastic. From the moment I joined there has always been someone to talk to for advice and for help with anything I needed. Before I left I had many questions to ask, some that I felt were silly, however my Australian consultant was very patient, understanding and helpful and took the time to answer any questions; large or small that I had. Furthermore Career Teachers helped me to organise everything I needed, from visas, to accomadation all of the ins and outs that came with relocting they were happy to help.

    Since arriving in the UK the assistance that I have received has been maintained at a high level. I was working at schools within my second week of arriving in London and this was throughout a quiet period of the accademic year. Stuart and Louise have been particularly helpful and I now have regular work at schools that are easily accessible from my house. Not only have Stuart and Louise been remarkable but everyone at Career Teachers are always willing to answer questions or help out when I call. I have also attended an interactive whiteboard information night as well as a phonics workshop and I found both to be highly useful and informative. As well as the workshops being great, the teacher party that I have attended was heaps of fun and a great social network to be involved in.

    Overall I am really happy with Career Teachers and I would highly recommend them to anyone that is considering joinging this agency.

    After reading many reviews on this page, I am quite shocked by some people’s feeback. This agency has done nothing but support me in my career in London. My agent (Wayne McErlane) has bent over backwards continually ensuring that I have long term supply work in schools. I have recommnded this agency to many people and will continue to do so for a long time. I have only the hgihest praise for them.

    As for those who speak of the quality of schools, you are in London. It is a tough atmosphere. Pinning your shortfalls on those who gave you work will not aid your development in your career.

    A brilliant agency! From the moment I signed up with this agency back home, they have been fantastic and very helpful. Everyone that I was in contact with at the agency was went out of their way to assist me and get me work at decent schools. I’ve gained so much knowledge from all the schools I have been to over the past year and it was great how they offered training courses during half terms which developed my teaching skills and allowed me to familiarise with the curriculum in the UK. I’m grateful for the experiences i’ve had teaching and living in the UK, if it wasn’t for Career Teachers I wouldn’t have made the move!
    Thank you for absolutely everything Career Teachers, it has been a life-changing experience.

    Great agency. I have been here for 9 months now and have only good stuff to stay. I work mainly in east and north and the schools are pretty decent. You have to have an open mind and see for yourself-there are some great schools out there! Pay is pretty decent and the cOnsultants are good. They also treat you like they know you, unlike my other agency where I feel like just a number! Offered help by Mike when I was planning my trip and advised me on accommodation and found me somewhere. This was my biggest concern so this was a big help. My advice is to be prepared to travel uP to an hour and be flexible on the age you will have a go at. I had never taught kindy(nursery) before London and now I love it. Downside? Bit quiet at the end of terms but so is my other agency. Good guys and I recommend them.

    My first week with Career I was promised a 5 day supply gig, one tube stop away from my home. Sounded to good to be true. It was!!! That totally fell through and I was strung along that entire week by Career. Since then I get a random phone call about once every 10-14 days. They are very unorganized and do not offer a personal experience. I would not recommend this agency.

    I’m a high school teacher – was still given the theres plenty of work, as much as you want speach. I did not get any work for 6 weeks. So by the time I got a little bit here and there I was in so much debt I was never getting out. I think I got a total of 10 days in 6 months!

    PLEASE do not pin your hopes on one agent, especially not this one. Be prepared to have to do other types of work.

    I had to basically ring them every day for work in the morning telling them (as they suggested) I was ready to go, even then they didnt give me anything. A horrible agent to work for.

    So far So good with Career Teachers! I think the staff is super friendly and down to earth (No one sounds as happy as them at 7 in the morning). Been working everyday for a few weeks now and I thoroughly enjoy almost all of the schools I go to! I think your attitude and personality has a lot to do with enjoying your time here with them, and more so your teaching abilities. Bottom line is this, if you’re confident that you’re a good teacher you will go in and be a good teacher and get called back to schools and therefore build up a good repore. You cannot expect work everyday if you arrive late, leave early and have a bad attitude. Thankfully majority of the schools I’ve been to are ones I get called back at. Overall, I love teaching here and I’m glad I chose Career Teachers to start off my career. I have, and will continue to recommend them to other amazing teachers!

    Career teachers are brilliant! I cant believe some of the negative experiences people have put up here. I came from overseas, no money and at the start of the two week snow out in jan 2009- these guys looked after me and could tell by the fact the schools I went to for supply were on the opposite side of town and there were obviously teachers living way closer than me.. those couple days a week sorted me out. they are straight up with money,the school and the kids and These guys know the game- london kids need savvy teachers and if you send shit teachers to inner city schools you don’t get their business. If you make a good impression at the school they know they have a winner and will sort you out…. your a good investment.I definitely recommend career teachers if you know your stuff,your on the ball and you love teaching they can provide great opportunities.

    I really like this agency and the consultants are really personable and honest. Their rates of pay are good too. Schools I have been to have been really nice and friendly, no dreadful schools, just average London schools but mostly the schools are outstanding.

    Work is quite slow and quiet but they do keep in regular contact with me. I think they are great, shame not everyone has had the experience I have. I think things are changing in the world of supply teaching and this is, unfortunately having a knock-on effect on the amount of work people are getting.

    Not working much with this agency and not much feedback from them. I have to chase them for work all the time. I’m being proactive and calling and emailing and letting them know I’m available and very little response from this agency. If it’s a problem with me as a teacher I have not heard or received any feedback from the agency. I wouldn’t recommend them.

    These people are very nice. That is until you enter their web of deception. To be honest, i believe they are all business school drop-outs. It is not even the cheap suits, but the fact that they are so obsessed with making sure “you are the best product they can provide for their clients”. To be given less than one weeks work in one month, is testimony that you had better get popular quick! If not you will be living on the cold London streets, without even a blanket. While they sip exotic coffees in their high-rise building.

    Signed up outside of the UK. Was promised plenty of work and a bonus – got neither. Low quality of schools. I don’t recommend this agency.

    Stay away!

    Signed up with this agency in Canada, moved to London, was given little to no work. Was unable to pay basic bills. Spent a fortune relocating. Was promised $500 to cover air fair to London and never received it. Called and emailed the agency constantly, asking for work. Was assured work would pick up but never did – always the same excuses. Ended up spending a large amount of my savings to stay afloat in this expensive city. Forced to use their payroll company which took large portions of my earrings in fees. What little work I was given was in one of London’s worse neighborhoods. Poor quality of schools. Always seemed to be different consultants in the office which made it difficult to develop a rapport with anyone.

    I regret using this agency.

    “I signed up with this agency while I was still in Canada and everything they offered me sounded amazing. Unfortunately it was all LIES and nothing that they promised was there after I spent all of this money moving to London. I would never suggest this agency to anyone. After I confronted them regarding this they simply stopped contacting me or answering emails and left me stranded in London with no choice but to sign up with other agencies who turned out to be WAYYY better.”

    – I agree with this post COMPLETELY. I have NEVER been treated so poorly by an agency. I was living here for 3 months, and only worked NINE days! Then I signed up with Smart Teachers, and I worked more for them in the past 2 weeks than I have for Career in the 3 months that I’ve been here.

    I would never deal with this teaching agency again or ever recommend them. I spent 4 months in the UK (one of the most expensive countries) without work and the agency just basically told me it wasn’t their problem. Everything they tell you is a lie.

    So I came over to London, UK already signed up with Career Teachers not knowing what to expect. What started off as a 6month venture, quickly turned into 2years. I think that CT made my decision to stay longer that much easier, since I always had work 5days a week. In meeting other people, working for other agencies, I was surprised to learn that they often were signed up with 3-4 other agencies since they didn’t get enough daily supply work from just one. In my experience with CT that was never the case. I would definitely recommend CT and a bonus is they also pay for your flight!

    Career Teachers is a great agency that provides educators a chance to go overseas and teach. Once you arrive in London there is an orientation that will give you information about the school systems and on the transportation systems i.e train, tube etc Overall, I had a great experience in London and would recommend it for anyone who wants to try teaching in England.

    Career Teachers was not only great in finding me daily work, but in helping me get overseas. I was provided with work within the first week of being there. The experiences that I got teaching in London, have made me a better teacher.

    When I signed up with Career Teachers I was told there would be heaps of work – and there was! I was consistently given work and was well informed about what positions I would be covering. The initial orientation was very helpful and a great intorduction to teaching in the UK. I am glad I only went with one agency because I felt by being loyal to them, that they were loyal to me. I had a graet working experience with Career Teachers.

    Career Teachers provided me with an amazing experience teaching in London. They were able to refer me to a residence easily so that my transition to London was as smooth as possible and I did not have to worry about finding a place to live once I got there. The staff were very friendly and provided me with work every day. There were many days where I worked at a school which was only a 15 minute ride away on a bus. The pay was very reasonable compared to other companies. I am very satisfied I chose to work for Career Teachers.

    I taught with Career Teachers from 2008-2009 and have nothing but great things to say. High rates of pay, got into a contract in a good school in a matter of weeks, and had great service from beginning to end. Flight reimbursement was a bit of a bonus as well….!

    I enjoy this agency. I am pleased with the service they provide me, but wish that the quality of schools they sent me to was higher. I get sent to many low SES areas, and would like to experience a higher SES school or private school community. My roommate has experienced these type of high end schools through his agency (Protocol). I also had some troubles getting my CRB transferred to them, even though I had completed all of the needed paper work. This caused me a few weeks with very little or no work. On the bright side, my agent, Jo, is very personable and she refers me to many of her colleagues as well so that there are many people looking for work for me. Now that my CRB is cleared, I get work almost every time I call in, and frequently get pre-booked. Overall, I would recommend this agency to a friend.
