I've been working as a cover supervisor with Aspire People for over a year now, and they're the only agency I'm signed with. The amount of work I receive tends to vary depending on the time of year. Aspire People offer flexibility, which suits me due to personal circumstances, although, in all honesty, you couldn't survive financially from being signed to just the one agency - but I'm sure that's probably true of most. The pay is excellent - if you can get the work. Cover supervising with Aspire People is a great way to gain experience and moreover confidence within schools and classrooms, especially if you're considering a career in teaching.

In the time I have been with aspire they have been great with from the get go; my consultant Ricky Bassi is a commendable consultant; always keeping me posted and helping build up my TA experience by offering placements to a number of different schools on a regular basis. Aspire treats Teachers and Teaching Assistants with respect and they try their absolute best to make their time working with us enjoyable. The team offer a personal friendly service and they always deal with any queries or concerns as quickly as possible.

I have been with Aspire for nearly 3 years. They keep in regular contact with me and always match me to appropriate age ranges. I am sent to a wide range of diverse but lovely schools, which is always very interesting. As I live close to the boundaries of 3 boroughs Julia (Who is always very upbeat and cheerful)is able to work as an excellent team player with other consultants providing work in all these areas within a reasonable distance from my home. Thank you Aspire!!

Have had a positive experience working for Aspire, so far all the schools have been great and Julia my consultant has been brill. The amount of work was a bit quiet to start off with with but has picked up a lot, and they pay more than the other agency I work for. Recommended.

Supply is great with Aspire. Been to good schools and work is consistent. Minimum I get 3 days a week, which is good for me because I want to work part time. Julia my consultant has been great. Keeping in touch with me constantly letting me know about work. Had few problems with payslips but the guys have always sorted it out very quickly. Thanks

Aspire services have really helped me find a number of work placements, and when it is avaialble it is clear where I have to go and who to report too. Because I have only just started with the company this was really helpful as it allowed me to ease directly into work. I really like that Emily asks for availability every week to ensure that I can work. I like the fact that I don't feel pressured to go work when I have other elements to worry about such as Uni. The other good thing is that I get calls and texts occasionally asking how I am and how I am doing with everything. It ensures that I'm happy and not uncomfortable. Before starting Emily explained a lot about the teaching side of things she gave me tips and tricks for effective teaching such as staying calm, don't raise your voice etc. The good thing is I feel like with the advice she gave ensured that I could go out and have success with the different schools and lessons I've taught. The service in my opinion is great. I like the fact that she gave me a chance when I had no previous experience. I now feel I can tackle most situations in the school.

Aspire People have most definitely helped me to get where I am today! I am just about to complete my PGCE in PE and have already got a full time job for September. Without the help, support, encouragement and experience gained from working at Aspire People, I would definitely not be in the situation I am now. My consultant Emily was superb in finding me work, keeping in touch and always being there to answer questions. Aspire kept me very busy, always paid on time and provided me with a good foundation and which I have build a solid teaching future.

I have been with Aspire for over three years now and I can honestly say that it is great working for them. I have had regular work as well as long term placements. The consultants are friendly and approachable. They check availability weekly so you can work the days you want.

I have been with Aspire now for the last few months, and joining aspire was probably the thing that has happened to me in my teaching career. I am a confident teacher, but it’s the support I get from my agency that makes me confident. My consultants (Ricky and Sunita) are like a breath of fresh air, providing not only regular work but they also deal with all my queries professionally and quickly as well as providing advice on how to progress my career. I truly recommend Aspire to all teachers and cover supervisor.

I've only recently started working for Aspire, having had them recommended to me from more than one reliable source. Their staff are enthusiastic and friendly, and are genuinely supportive of the professional needs of teachers. Their candour about things like travel times, difficult schools, and the pros and cons of day-to-day work have all been helpful. Plus they pay £10 a day more than the other supply agency I work for ! Sophie and Tim are both great :)

Aspire People have been brilliant from day one! I started working with them in January 2012 and have had regular work in different schools very regularly since then. I have enjoyed experiencing how different schools function and my consultant, Emily, is fantastic. Aspire People have a great team and truly do a fantastic job.

Only just started with Aspire (hence 8/10!) but I have no complaints. Everyone is always friendly and helpful. we have discussed my strengths and age groups I am not confident with and this is always taken into account. Schools are pleased with the service too.

I signed up with Aspire in 2011 November, my first job was in December from then l stayed at the same school for a year and was employed to cover a maternity leave by the school. After completion l went back to Aspire and I was then sent to another school for a term and now l am covering another long Term stretch in another school until summer. I will honestly say how please l am with Aspire, Sunita has been exceptionally great to me l cannot complain, she ensures l am always in a job and l have always made her proud. She always keep in touch and ensure l am doing fine wherever l am working. She answers my questions promptly and her personality is fantastic, this is my second agency but l will say overall Aspire is the best. Thanks again Sunita and Aspire...l am looking forward to working for you in the coming school year. Thanks again....
