Capita is a poor agency to work for. Only spent a few months with them. They offer you appalling rates. If you are booked to do general supply they will only pay a cover supervisor rate of £60. I was a head of department on UPS 3 and a TLR holder. [...]

Chaotic. Happily took £52 for a DBS check from me. I politely contacted them several times over the next two months and they stated my references had not yet been returned. Two more months went by and I contacted them again - they told me one of the references wasn’t satisfactory which I know isn’t true. [...]

SANZA Teaching

6.1 out of 10
23 Ratings
Tradewind and Sanza are agencies that need to be approached with caution. They will register you but will not be able to find you work. When they do manage to give you a one or two days work , they will give you a negative feedback which they cannot justify fully and they will not allow a Teacher to approach a School to discuss and understand what has been said and why which leaves you wondering what the truth is. [...]

My contract I was brought over on was not always honoured and found that while I was brought over to teach secondary as a secondary teacher I was only in secondary schools a very low percentage of time.
