I have recently rejoined capita and find them absolutely brilliant. Daisy and the team are in touch regularly and are very compassionate caring people.

Classroom Teachers

I have been with Classroom teachers for the past three years. I must say it is the best agency I have ever worked with. Especially my consultant , Amba, goes extra mile to help . As a SEN Home Tutor , it is very difficult to find work as it is so limited and "niche" and not other agencies deal with vacancies as such, but Classroom , is one of the best agencies to deal with this kind of work.

Bad agency to work for. The staff do not have the ability to lease with Teachers in a competent and professional manner. They are only focused on looking after their own interests. They make no effort to ensure that all those who are registered with them or their partner company Tradewind are working. [...]
