I started working with this agency last May and cannot rate them highly enough. I am a freelance writer as well as a teacher and wanted the flexibility of supply - to choose when I wanted to work. I signed up with two of the larger agencies prior to Red Box thinking I would be able to pick which days I worked, not so, I was made to feel guilty for not working during busy periods and then not offered work when I was available.

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.

There is no gainsaying the fact that Timeplan is the leading Education Agency of all time. I joined Timeplan in 2014 and I can honestly say they are the best. This testament does not come as a result of my experience and observation alone but also because they were recommended to me by a School where I was volunteering as a trainee Teaching Assistant prior to my progression into supply 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. [...]
