Forward Teaching

10.0 out of 10
Forward Teaching are a great agency to have discovered. Lottie really listened when I explained to her the role I was looking for and very promptly found me just that! She is excellent at communicating and checking that in the early stages of interview and first few days that everything is going ok. [...]

So happy to leave them a great review! I came over with another agency who were nothing but a massive headache. They talked me into a full time job and after 6 weeks of hell I had to leave. They were so pushy on the phone and I left school most days in tears. [...]

Destination Education

Have nothing bad to say about the agency! Been working with them for just about a year now. If you're honest with them and tell them when you can work and the age groups you prefer, they will do their best to find you work! I get such lovely schools, and have a few regular ones now which is always great! It's great being able to be so flexible as well. [...]
