    Absolutely awesome. These guys genuinely care about their teachers; they are always checking up to see if everything is alright and are super helpful with anything – be it school related or not.
    Phone calls in the lead-up to my arrival were super helpful and friendly and I got picked up from Heathrow and taken to my hostel for free. My first teaching gig out of uni was a bit challenging, but I always felt like the guys at Vision always had my back if I ever felt like it was too much. I originally had Callum as my point of contact and then Byron, both these guys really battled for me at my school and did an awesome job on the negotiations at my school; I could not have dreamed of a better deal without them.
    I have other mates with other London agencies; they always complained about how their agency never really went in to bat for them and never really had any genuine concern for their wellbeing. My experience with Vision has been the polar opposite. Great staff and great people.

    I was never out of work with vision and they were so flexible with me requesting time of for travel and so forth. The international team were amazing, originally starting with Zahra and then was handed over to Abbi I found both girls welcoming and supportive for my big move. I felt when I arrived I had already connections and a friendship with them which made the move less daunting.
    The pay could be higher, and as they go through an umbrella company there are fees to pay (most agency’s are similar though).
    I was booked through many consultants for work as my location allowed me to go all around so I didn’t feel I had a strong connection with them but when they would call they were easy to talk to !

    I’ve had a great experience working as a supply teacher with Vision. Every person that I have had the pleasure of communicating with has been respectful, understanding, easy going, willing to help, and always in a great mood. I get most of my bookings through Matthew, and he has been amazing to work with. He is always around when you need his help and is ready to take time out of his day to make sure that you are comfortable with your work. Louisa has also been a tremendous help with getting all of this journey started off. She answered all questions before I started working for Vision as a supply teacher. Vision also allows teachers from overseas, like myself, to meet others through social events. It has greatly helped with meeting new people and making new friends! I would highly recommend this company to anybody looking for supply of full time work as teachers or teaching assistants. Nothing negative to say about anyone at the company, they’re all great people!!

    I would highly rate Vision Teaching, in particular Johan who has been my main point of contact for almost a year now. He is efficient, reliable, friendly and checks up from time to time to see how things are going. There hasn’t been any reason to date that I’ve had any reason to complain or be unhappy with the service they’ve provided.

    So I called up this agency as it says that one of their areas of specialism is SEN…however I called and this ISNT something that the agency deal with as a specialist area or even have a team that do this! I have spoken to two consultants before there, I asked for both of them and they have both left the company and I was being passed around and no one really wanted to help me. I then spoke to a manager who was really quite rude which I feel is highly unprofessional. My dealings with the company recently haven’t been very good and some of my friends who also deal with agency have found the same thing.

    Vision teaching has been amazing. From day one I felt cared for and secure. Zahra was always willing to help me with anything I needed and I never had to wait for a reply which was incredible when you’re anxious about moving. Vision teaching is the best agency, I felt not only respected but appreciated.
    Thank you vision teaching for helping me make the best move of my life:)
    You rock!!!

    Vision is a very reliable agency. The staff are very friendly and accomodating. Moving country can br a very diffocult and daunting process, although Zahra helped us find a house, picked us up from the airport and assisting in obtaining a bank account.

    All the teachers in the house receive constant work and we have been very happy woth the placements.

    Highly recommended!

    From my initial contact with Vision Teaching to my arrival in London 6 months later, I have felt warmly welcomed and supported by the Vision Teaching family. As a smaller agency, I feel Vision Teaching are a lot more personable than other companies and I feel that I am valued here with Vision. The opportunity to share one of the Vision houses with 5 other teachers has been brilliant, and I love returning home and hearing about everyone’s days. The teaching opportunities provided by Vision have mostly been great, and despite a lack of initial availabilities at the start of term, the staff remained open and honest about these circumstances, which was fantastic. All in all I have had a great experience working with Vision so far and I look forward to continuing working with them in the future.

    vision teaching have made the whole experience from moving form Australia to the UK an absolute breeze. They have been extended supportive and helpful in every respect and very personable, being specific to your needs. They really care about your wellbeing and that is paramount to being a successful teacher.
    As an Agency, there is guaranteed, consistent work and they try to keep it as local as possible. The consultants are friendly and helpful and try to keep you in schools and key stages you prefer.
    Cannot thank them and praise them enough for making this such a seamless transition( particular Zahra!)

    These dudes rock!!

    Moving from Australia to London to teach can be scary, however Vision Teaching mate it so easy. From the moment I started speaking to Vision they made feel at ease. They helped me with accommodation, a bank account and even met me at the airport when I arrived in London!!!!

    I was designated a consultant who was super friendly! Too be honest all the staff at Vision Teachingh are super cool! The schools that I worked at was local which was perfect during the colder months.

    Vision Teaching even invited me to free socials which were a blast

    I can’t thank Vision Teaching enough for such a super experience and would highly recommend this agency to everyone!

    Vision Teaching you are all legends

    I wish I had found them sooner.
    I came over to London last year with a different agency and was promised the world. Unfortunately it transpires I had been sold the dream and this was quickly becoming a nightmare.
    I was not picked up from the airport as “my consultant forgot” and I was living in a hostel for 5 weeks whilst travelling an hour and a half for work.

    I was recommended to join Vision Teaching and things quickly changed.
    The guys helped me to find accommodation within a week and were always on hand to help with any queries or advise me on good areas to live in.
    They got me work straight away and this has usually been within 30 mins of my door.
    I am now in my second year in London, working 5 days a week in schools that I enjoy and loving the experience.
    I honestly couldn’t of done it without they guys support and I couldn’t recommend them any higher.
    Thanks for everything.

    I was referred to Vision Teaching from a friend who had been doing supply work, and I’m fairly happy with my choice. It took quite some time to secure an interview, but I’m incredibly happy with the school I am at! Timesheet’s for full-time work weren’t explained very well, nor was overtime, and I’ve run into a few snafus. I was also informed my pay would be much higher when I was talking with Vision, and was surprised that it wasn’t. Another thing that was quite frustrating was that I was told time and time again that getting a bank account would be easier and would be possible based on a deal Vision had with a local bank. I was not told prior to leaving Canada and therefore didn’t bring enough money to last me until I moved into my flat, which was incredibly frustrating. Further, Vision’s deal with Mainpay was also not explained very well, just an FYI there is a fairly steep administration fee taken off each paycheque. I was also told I would be able to expense my temporary accommodation and flights, usually when expensing something you get the money back in full or close to full, however, Mainpay supposedly uses it to deduct from your NI every week. However, while all of these are incredibly frustrating, I would not have met my roommate if it weren’t for Sital. Vision did make arriving in London very smooth with airport pickup and the induction day.

    Vision Teaching has a very personal approach to maintaining a positive working environment. The recruiting process is made very easy, with each individual receiving a personal consultant that guides you through the recruiting process. This includes getting to know you through phone conversations, and email. The introduction to Vision Teaching is reassuring that they are there to assist and support all staff, including social events, seven day a week assistance when necessary, personal consultant contact and ensuring that all employees are comfortable in their working conditions. Overall, Vision Teaching operates a teaching agency that offers teachers from overseas a home away from home.

    Overall, I was quite pleased by Vision Teaching this last academic year- they really took their time at welcoming their new international teachers and making sure that we felt comfortable, here in London. Their staff have always been open and personable to talk to, and raise any issues (not that I really had any, though) with. I would say however, that at times it was a tad frustrating when trying to get ahold of their staff, as most went home right or even before, 5:00pm, right when most teachers’ days finish up. BUT overall, very happy with Vision Teaching. I have already recommended this agency to two other teachers, and will continue to do so!))

    I previously gave these guys bad reviews and decided to get work from other agencies. Apologies to Marc, I now see the error of my ways. You were actually a great agency and I wish I hadn’t given you the bad undeserved review.

    Marc I am really grateful for all the work you found me and being understanding when I had problems with a long term placement at one of my schools.

    Recently I got a call from Johan who is also a asset to them.

    Keep up the good work!

    Vision Teaching had been from the start like a family to me. They do everything in their power to make you feel welcomed and at home. In all my year of working with them, I was left one day without work (which is pretty amazing). Their service is just incredible. Without them I probably would have never come to London and lived that experience. I am sooo grateful to them for all their help. They check on you regularly to make sure that you have everything that you need. Like I said, they treat you like family. Thank you so much Vision for having me work for you. I wish you all the best.

    I’ve worked/communicated mainly with Zahra and she couldn’t be more helpful, personable and just wonderful.
    She is always available to help or just have a chat even while communicating across the world in different time zones.

    Love working for Vision. They are by far the nicest agency I’ve worked with in my time in London. Charlotte is my advisor and is truly exceptional at her job. The little touches like Christmas/Birthday cards, good luck messages and calls after the first day on new placements to check the teacher is happy are all fantastic touches. These compliment what is at its core a fantastic professional service.

    I’m a UK trained primary teacher and I joined vision last year after not getting much work from my other agency. Vision kept me busy for the rest of the year and got me a long term role for this year where I’m doing my Nqt.
    I was kept in the loop through the whole clearing process and when there was a problem with my reference they called me straight away so I could call my ref. Davina, Gemma and louisa were great the whole way through and I felt like Matt and Johan on the East team really listened to what I wanted. Which is why I have my dream job right now. Can’t recommend enough!

    Vision Teaching is by far the most personable and friendly agency I have spoke to, which made it easy for me to choose to go with them. They have helped me every step of the way, including Visas, paper work, and even help in finding permanent accommodations. They always keep in contact, and reply very quickly with questions, and even give you a call now and again to make sure everything is on track. They helped make my transition to London very easy, and they make you part of the team from day one. I have and will continue to recommend Vision to all of my fellow teachers! Deserving of all Stars!

    From the moment I got my first e-mail from Vision ’till 3 weeks of employment later, Vision has done an amazing job of keeping me prepared, informed, and welcomed. They did a fantastic job of finding me the right placement for me in an amazing school. They really make you feel like you matter, and the fact that they’re a smaller company allows them to be personable and see each person as an individual, not just another number.

    I think any teacher, especially a new international teacher, would be remiss to not choose Vision Teaching as their agency.

    After making the decision to come to London and researching agencies I finally chose Vision. I can easily say that was the best choice I could have made. From the very first email or phone call I knew I was in good hands. They took care of everything I needed before arriving including all the paperwork. When I did fly in Vision was waiting at the airport to pick me up and drop me off at my new house (which they helped me find). The work has been consistent and rewarding which is a large factor when moving to an entirely new country. I’ve already recommended Vision to several teachers and staff I’ve met during my time here and they have all been amazed at how great Vision has been for me. An easy 10 stars!

    When I was looking to come over and teach in London, a friend suggested vision. My experience has been amazing so far. Though there are lots of reasons for my glowing review, I think it’s the personal touches that have really won me over. My girlfriend came over with me to find work in a different field, and vision not only helped me set up my national insurance number, help me get a place to live, and set up my back account, but also set it all up for her as well! It can be hard moving away from your friends and family, but vision has made me feel welcome and comfortable with all these new and exciting changes!

    I came from Canada to work with Vision last year and they were beyond helpful in terms of getting me settled. They picked me up at the airport, organized the set up of my bank account, held a useful training day, and organized several social events throughout the year. In addition, the staff are friendly, communicative, and honest. I have heard horror stories from other Canadian teachers of agencies going back on promises, delaying payment, etc. and this was never the case with Vision. If you are coming overseas and are looking for a personable agency that will alleviate a lot of the stress that comes with such a big move then Vision is the way to go. I am looking forward to working with them again this year.

    Vision have been incredible since arriving from Australia only a week ago. Work is already coming in abundance and the whole team at Vision have been really supportive and encouraging throughout the transition from Melbourne to London. Before even arriving, Vision basically organises EVERYTHING that you need – UK bank account, mobile simcards, oyster cards for the tubes, they assist with everything to do with the visa and getting into the country as well as actually taking the time to explain anything you dont understand throughout the process. Since arriving, the only issue i’ve had is finding a place to live for the longer term (and ive only been here a little over a week), and Vision let you use their facilities to organise viewings/look for places! they also have an open door policy, so my past few days have been spent making coffee and eating cookies in their office – and taking ‘search breaks’ on their lunch breaks with them. they are not only a recruitment company but a bunch of people who genuinely care about the transition and the work they provide you. I would 100% recommend vision to anyone – particularly back home – as its been a really positive, encouraging and supportive start to my time in London.

    Vision has so far been absolutely excellent in helping me transition from Ontario to London on literally all fronts. Prior to making the move, they did all the work for me, minus my visa application, so my time leading up to the move was super stress free. They are very quick and helpful to answer any and all questions, and will go above and beyond to find extra information on things that might interest or help you. They pick you up from the airport and will take you to wherever your accommodations are, which is very helpful and not commonly done by other agencies, and further will help you to find permanent residency! Lastly, the owners of the company actually do the work – find schools for you to teach at, they know the teachers by name, and they (all staff) work really hard to make sure that you get the most put of your experience. I really can’t say enough good things about this agency.

    Vision Teaching has been the best agency to work for! I have been in London for just over a year now. Right from the very beginning they were extremely helpful and personable, which made settling in very easy. They have literally found work for me every single day – my only days off have been days that I requested to have off. They have also made my transition into a second year very smooth and easy because I was not left stranded to find a long term position. They are very organized and they make the effort to ensure that all employees are taken care of.

    I’m really happy I made the decision to work with Vision!

    I have been with vision since February 2015. So not too long but I cannot sing their praises enough. I have enjoyed more or less every moment that I have been with them.

    Amount of work:
    I was initially on a guaranteed paid scheme but this was changed and even then I was still being called every day to have work given to me which was brilliant as I was quite worried about not finding me work as I have a lot of bills to pay!

    Of all the agencies I have been with I found them to be very honest, very personable as they made the effort to call up after each new school that I would be sent out to to see how I got on and if I enjoyed it. I never felt pressured by them to go to a school which I didnt like and they tried their utmost best to get me sent out to schools which I was familiar with.

    Even after leaving the agency as I have now found my NQT placement the staff there have been extremely supportive and have offered me more than just a supply job over the past few months as they have even provided me with emotional support during a difficult time and looked out for me where other agencies havent.

    Where other agency members can make you feel really crud because you cannot take on a job for whatever reason, vision are very understanding and take the extra time and effort to get you on board to find another post that you could go to or leave you to it to rest if you are unwell and check up on you to see how you are doing.

    I hope that if I ever do come back to doing supply work, that Vision will take me on board again as it was by far the best agency in London!
    Johan, Mark, and Matthew… thank you for having me!

    I have been working with Vision Teaching for the past year and a half and I can honestly say they are one of the best agencies. They can find you day-to-day supply work in your area either a day before or on the day a school requires a supply. They provide you with good information on the role you will taking on, as well as the requirements of a specific pupil if needed. Aside from day-today supply, they will look for long-term roles that could become permanent, as well as permanent roles. Their staff are very friendly and honest when speaking to them about potential roles. The rate of pay is very good too, all payments are given swiftly and on time.
    Without a doubt, it is an agency I would recommend to anybody who is looking for work in the education environment. They will do their best to assist you in anyway they can!

    I moved to London from Australia in August 2014 I started supply teaching through another agency. After two months of travelling over 70min to work, often not getting a full week of work & rude responses to questions I found myself looking for a new agency.
    After a recommendation I came to find Vision Teaching & they were a breath of fresh air from day 1! (I even got a friend to change agencies too & got a full day’s pay as a thank you) I have always had a constant supply of bookings that are under an hour door to door. The professionalism & staff are what makes Vision a success. They actually LISTEN to your concerns & I was never made to feel guilty if I chose not to return to a school I didn’t like.
    Through the social events I have made new friends who I never would have met. If you are looking for accommodation Vision can also help with that too!

    Teaching in London is tough enough, if you are looking for an efficient, flexible & professional agency with a personable touch then I definitely recommend Vision.
    Big thank you to Daniel & Marc for all my bookings!

Staff has been extremely helpful and always make sure I am placed at the right age group and at a classroom where I can cope and feel condifent to teach. I started with daily supply to get the experience and they gave me work every single day across several months till I got my long-term role through them at an amazing school. Highly recommended to everyone.

    So I wanted to write a review and a thank you, because Vision Teaching have been amazing with me. Of course they cover all the normal bases, such as always getting paid on time and actually delivering on work exactly as they say they will. Vision also go beyond that, from the very first contact I had with them I was treated with total respect and compassion, essentially as a human being! At every step along the way they were people i could talk to about anything and who were the most reasonable, compassionate and understating agency I have heard anyone talk about.

    If being treated well is at all a concern for you, then i couldn’t recommend Vision enough. They have been wonderful, and for that guys,
    Thank you.

    I am a Londoner born and bred. I got my teaching qualification from the University of London and have only worked in London primary schools. Contrary to other postings on this web site, I’ve had a very positive experience since registering with Vision Teaching Recruitment in February 2014 where I have been assigned to fantastic schools every day that I have wanted to work. I’ve marked the consultancy down for honesty since I felt that one of the consultants was not as open as I would have liked when trying to secure some long term assignments for me although this may have also been in part an issue for or with the schools we were working with. Paywise, for the last four weeks of work, I’m only owed six days from a particular school who were not on the electronic timesheet processing system that the consultancy have set up. The consultancy are very good though at keeping track of missing timesheets and will send weekly reminders.

    After having an awful experience with a different agency, I was desperate for work. After my friend recommended me to Vision, I have not been let down since. Within 2 weeks, I had a long term supply job and after that, I got an interview for a full time job. That was for autumn 2013. It is now spring 2015 and I am still currently with my school.

    Vision have helped me all along the way, and many still keep in touch with me. I would HIGHLY recommend this agency to anyone looking for overseas work!

    Well done Vision :)

    Fabulous agency, I signed up when I moved to North London in the summer 2013 as I had been unable to find permanent work and was unfamiliar with the schools in this area. It was a slow start to the year but by the beginning of October I had a position in an amazing school for the remainder of the school year! Due to personal circumstances I decided to do day to day supply for this academic year, very different to last year, I’ve had at least 4 days of work every week since the first whole week of term! Been in some fantastic schools (and yes a couple of challenging ones) but would definitely recommend Vision. Never had a problem with getting paid on time either. Staff are all friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend to local supply teachers, it’s not an agency solely for international teachers (although it may seem like it from many of the comments!).

    Vision Teaching found me a teaching placement back in 2009 when I was moving over from America. They again assisted me when I moved back to England in 2013. Without there help I am not sure moving to England would have been possible. I can’t thank them enough for finding me a great school to teach in and transitioning to live in a new country. I know I can count on them for help or just general advice. Thanks VT!

    An excellent agency. I’ve been so happy with them that I haven’t bothered registering with anyone else. They keep me busy!

    I have and will continue to recommend them to other teachers.

    I worked as a teacher through Vision Teaching from January 2013 – June 2013, and never once did I question working for someone else. Myself and three other Canadian teachers I lived with in London always received work, either daily supply or short term positions in one school/classroom. From my initial contact with Sarah during my recruitment, to receiving daily calls from the guys in the office, to the managing partners Daniel and Craig – the Vision Teaching employees are genuine and personable, and truly care about their teachers.

    They really go above and beyond in finding daily work, and sending you to the schools where you have built relationships at. I travelled to many schools before receiving a short term position a few days a week at a preferred school, but always recognized how highly each school regarded Vision Teaching and their teachers when visiting different schools.

    Vision staff are SUPER helpful if you ever have a problem, and pay is on time and competitive to other agencies out there. They also host really fun social nights out with other teachers working for Vision, where I met many friends that I still am in contact with. Great agency, dedicated and sincere staff, and a memorable teaching opportunity I will never forget :)

They have a vested interest in the personal and professional well being of their teachers. The staff are are very understanding and encourage feedback from their teachers. Vision works hard at ensuring their teachers ALWAYS have work. Without hesitation I would recommend Vision to any teacher working in London.

I am registered other agencies, but since registering with Vision they don’t get a look-in; because Vision gives me all the work I can handle. Staff are friendly and courteous and always willing to consider your specific work needs. They find me the work I want, in the schools I like and at the times I need.

    In July 2013 I took early retirement as a Deputy Headteacher. As person in charge of supply needs I only engaged teachers from Vision Teaching because as a supremely professional outfit I could always trust the managers to send me the highest quality vetted and dedicated teachers.
    It made absolute sense to sign on with Vision Teaching when I took early retirement and wanted to supplement my teacher’s pension with supply work.
    I have found it a pleasure to be on the register of Vision Teaching and am very happy to be part of a highly professional team which has at its heart the best possible service for schools and their children.

    Vision Teaching is absolutely the best agency to work for! After coming to London with another agency that worked hard with me before coming and providing no work once here, Vision saved me by giving me all the work I could handle and at a better rate of pay! It’s easy to think that what Vision offers is too good to be true, but they absolutely follow through on every one of their promises! I can honestly say I couldn’t ask for a more personable agency with people who genuinely care about every one of their teachers. I would not consider working for any other agency again. As a side note, all the extras are amazing too! Socials to meet friends, and assistance with all the settling in issues are a huge bonus that no other company offers.

    I’m really shocked by Carlas comment and she should really pay attention to the names of her agencies. Vision Teaching and Vision Recruitment are two totally different agencies and I found that out on the quick google search she recommended people do.
    I currently work with Vision and they have been nothing but fantastic. They tell the truth about everything and have gone beyond the call of duty to try and make my life easier. Their staff are friendly and instantly put you at ease and I feel like they all put in the time to get to know me and the types of work I am looking for. Rates of pay are fair and more then I’ve been offered with other agencies. They have never asked me for any money at all. The service I get with them is the best I have ever experienced from a teaching agency in London and I honestly don’t think there is anything they could do to make it better. An agency that listens to their teachers is a rare thing and if you go to Vision Teaching you’ll find it.

    I don’t normally spend time on reviews but seeing the review from Carla has prompted me into action. I have had impeccable service and work as an overseas educator through Vision and would robustly recommend. Further, the clear nonsense from the frankly illiterate Carla should not be considered an accurate reflection of Vision. Perhaps Carla’s struggles are less down to any agency and more to do with her clear inability to write. A review bereft of grammar, incomprehensible use of the homophones their, there and they’re and extremely basic spelling errors. Vision are doing a service ensuring Carla never gets in front of a child!

    I went through several agencies who promised as much work as I could handle and delivered next to know work and left me struggling with London living expenses. Then I found Vision.

    Vision Teaching was realistic and understated in their approach. They never made any outrageous claims and yet delivered more work than any other agency.

    I will recommend this team to my friends above all others because of their friendly attitude. They really look after their teachers.

    I consistently get work, whether it be prebooked days or on call days as supply.
    Definitely an agency that seems to be one of the best in terms of rate of pay, amount of work offered, and dedication to the interests of their teachers!

    As a teaching assistant, they got me consistent work in more challenging areas, which really helped in my professional development. They booked me in advance and I always knew where I was going to the night before work.

    It took a long time to get cleared to work.

    Did not have a competitive salary and they had a limited variety of schools.

They even picked us up from the airport when we arrived.

    I recently moved over to the UK and have been in touch with many teaching agencies. Vision Teaching is by far the best.

    The team is reliable, friendly, honest and helpful. They offered me work quickly and have made me feel like a valued candidate. They look after their teachers and get to know you personally in order to find you the perfect position.

    Their knowledge about the industry has been invaluable and I would strongly recommend any teacher looking for supply teaching or long term positions to get in touch with Vision Teaching.

I signed up on their supply contract and started working with them in September 2011 and haven’t looked back since! They are always there to provide help and a friendly face when I need it – I especially enjoy the nights out with everyone! I would totally recommend Vision to anybody who is looking to teach in London.

    I really did not like communications with this agency, I found them to be completely patronising and liars. When they seeked me out I was told my request for long term blocks of work would be fulfilled. However after signing up and getting CRB done I was told I would need to do a few days in a school because schools do not like to hire people they don’t know: rubbish!
    I accepted an offer for a days work , but forgot I had a very important appointment so had to decline after accepting, not good on my part, but it couldn’t be helped. They made me feel very stupid saying I had not made a good first impression. Following that they gave a job offer, and they adviced me to check my availability, I did but they told me it had gone: within five minutes. The following morning they phoned at 6.15(which is very unusual for an agency) to give me the same job offer. My impression was that they were playing games with me, and the job had not been filled the day before, but that by calling overtly early they could cover their backs and still get the job filled by me.
    Overall a very strange agency, filled with up their own arses patronising men who look down on their “staff”.

    I’m extremely unhappy with Vision Teaching following very poor service from them. They sent me to two schools at the start of March and I’ve not been paid for either to date. I’ve made numerous phone calls to find out about my payment status and have not received satisfactory responses and no replies to any of my emails. After no payment was received I called Vision Teaching who said that one of the school was not going to pay the agency and therefore I was not going to paid. The agency confirmed that I would be paid by the other school but have not received a penny so far. I would strongly suggest teachers to seriously consider using this agency and if you do don’t expect to get paid for any work you do through this agency.

    I never got much work from Vision, as I found their most active supply teachers were overseas. I had a booking in a school for three days with them, the school asked me to keep returning. which took me to the weekend. On the following Monday morning I called Vision for my availability. They never gave me work for that day, and then called me in the afternoon to return to the school I had previously been in. When I went to the school, I found out Vision had sent an French Canadian Teacher who couldn’t control year ones! They weren’t even difficult. The school had to request me back, but it demonstrated their incompetence in choosing the right teacher for the job. Overall, I’ve found them useless and their demand to pay for CRB’s is nothing more than a scam. Upon joining them, they told me North London was their busiest area, but they never gave me work, just drips and drabs. When I did work fir them, they always sent me to challenging school and classes.

    By far the most reliable agency I have worked with since arriving in the UK. The consultants are friendly, honest, reliable and always happy to help. I am never without work and the agency do everything they can to thoroughly prep me on each assignment.
    I have worked with multiple agencies in the past, but I will be solely working with Vision until the time comes to return home.
