Forward Teaching was recommended to me by a colleague in a previous school and, from the outset, I am so glad it was! Having joined a couple of other agencies, I soon ditched them as they were simply no match for Lottie’s honest, down-to-earth and friendly manner. [...]

Supply Desk

As a newbie supply, I didn't know what to expect and was, frankly, nervous about having to go to new and unfamiliar places at the drop of a hat (I know that's the point of supply teaching...) Also the insecurity of having left a long-term tenure and suddenly facing the possibility of not having regular work was scary. [...]

Pay Attention! I have been working with career teachers for a while. I had declared that I'm not available for one day coverage and I'm interested only for week or month placements so they sent me in a school far away from my area making me pay a weekly tfl ticket and from the school I was informed that they only needed me for two days as they were waiting someone else to come with a contract the next day anyway.

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.

Then most recently i was placed in normal schools nd nurseries, which was a relief at first but then I was booked by a different staff who doesnt seem to know what shes doing. [...]
