Opogo is an agency I would recommend to anyone looking for a job. The staff have been super helpful not to mention really lovely!

Veritas Education

Shocking. Signed up for veritas was offered a job at a school as told rate of pay was £70 per day obviously after tax etc works out at £55 just less per day. Was told given a role without even confirming my right to work in the UK! Then once started found out a separate company you would need to fill out another large document in order to get paid! None of this was explained at the job offer, plus then the payment company needed extra stuff in order to be paid - I provided this and was informed I would be paid that day (already 5 days overdue) anyway I wasn’t paid that day then the weekend came nothing so Monday I contacted sapphire (payment company) who informed me they had no confirmation of my hours from veritas.

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.

A terrible company who lied throughout the process about the kind of school they were sending me to. When I arrived and realised that the school was in a terrible situation with demoralised staff, falling student numbers, a headteacher on the verge of quitting and no real route to improvement, Timeplan simply stopped responding to emails.

The pay rate is pretty good, however some branches seem to pay more than others. The main problem with this agency is that they are too big, often I would get a phone call for work from one consultant, then if I had some issues I would call back only for the phone to be answered by another person.
