TOP CLASS AGENCY!! Having come over from Ireland with a different agency, things didn't work out and I was referred to Career Teachers. I really am very surprised with some of the comments on here. For me, Career Teachers have been nothing but helpful from start to finish. Firstly, they listened to what I was looking for and Richard found me a really lovely school. It was a challenging but class experience. I got a great rate of pay and the one or two times I had a query they were dealt with really quickly. I really would recommend people working with Career Teachers.

The best teaching agency I have ever met. They are very reliable and friendly. If I had any questions or problems they helped me immediately. More supply work on offer than short term but that was ideal for me as I have kids and needed to be more flexible. Wayne was an excellent help and was really professional when dealing with schools I worked at. I would definitely recommend this agency.

My experience has been that they care more about their commission than their supply workers. God forbid if you are not able to work half a day due to other unavoidable committments! Its like they forget that they're dealing with people and not robots!! Rather than understand, they threaten and bully, some subtle, some not so. Also, they have been very dishonest when giving reasons as to why an ongoing booking has been suddenly cancelled. AVOID!!

After graduating from a Canadian university, I was nervous about moving across the ocean and teaching in London schools. But my nerves started to ease when I met the staff at Career Teachers. The orientation was helpful; the people were friendly. I started out with supply work to avoid ending up at a school that I might be unhappy with. I highly recommend doing this to get a feel for multiple schools before committing to one in particular. It felt as though I had this huge team of people trying to find me work on a day-to-day basis. There were literally four staff members that found me work at one point or another. And even when permanent job offers were coming in, they all respected my wish to continue with supply work until I felt more comfortable taking something long-term. Eventually I received an offer from my favourite school. Without Career Teachers I would not have ended up where I did. For that I am so grateful to them. I don't know what other agencies are like, but I do know that Career Teachers gave me everything I could have wanted and more. They have an awesome staff and they make their teachers feel like the priority. The whole process with was super smooth while with Career Teachers. I would have no hesitation recommending them to another teacher.

AN ABSOLUTE VILE AGENCY! Disgusting manners, disgusting attitude and just disgusting overall. They psychologically bullied me and emotionally blackmailed me. I applied for a permanent position at a school after really enjoying my time there when I worked there for a few months through the agency and they threw a fit because I wanted time off from a short term role somewhere to go for an interview I was offered. The consultant goes 'I can't wait for the school you applied for to ask for reference' implying that he wants to give me a bad name. This agency will ruin your life if you join them. Evil, condescending and they do not look after their employees. I pray to God they collapse. DO NOT JOIN THEM!

A terrible agency that promises a lot. Books people into trial days for the wrong levels and proceeds to get defensive with no feedback whatsoever. What is more, after telling them you're not interested in further contact, they continue to spam you with offers. When one replies, they never come back to you. A generally hypocritical agency that doesn't have the level of service required. A lot of promises for far off locations that no one else wants to travel to. While there are a couple of decent people working there- most of their adverts are inaccurate and misleading - avoid if you want to progress your career.

When I started work with Career Teachers I thought they were excellent, very personable and my first few experiences with their schools were great. However, soon after this I began to have several issues starting with this agency 'misplacing' my DBS money, yet not telling me this until 3 weeks later (when I had asked why I hadn't received it yet). I then was manipulated into attending an interview for a so-called 'great' school where I was guaranteed a job, yet I was misinformed of the time of the interview, the ability of the students and the general set up of the school. I tried calling and emailing the agent at Career Teachers numerous times to receive feedback from the school but was ignored. The final straw for me however, was receiving a very condescending call from one of the agency staff informing me that a school had complained that during one of my classes the students were 'doing nothing' when she walked in. I have no recollection of this (most supply teachers will understand its hard to keep a class on task for the entire lesson) and explained so, yet the agent continued to patronize me and attacked me for taking a day off one of her schools to attend an interview (as mentioned above). Definitely would not recommend this agency, very disappointed with their lack of professionalism.

I've had a horrible experience thus far with Career Teachers, I was talked into coming over in November because they had lots of work. I was told that I would be working 4 days a week, 5 if I wanted and that there was no lack of work. I've been here for a month now and have only been booked for 12 days. Most weeks I only get 1/2 days and rarely work a full day, that being said its not enough to move here from another country and be able to afford living here. I would not ever recommend this agency to anyone find one that offers guarantee work. I also informed them that I was interested in a long term position. I have only had 1 observation yet they have plenty of jobs posted online that they are not putting me forward for. It has been a very frustrating experience and not one that I was expecting.

This agency promises you lots of work but does not deliver. Despite promises of work and several suitable jobs advertised on their website,there is never any work. When you apply for an advertised position, you receive no feedback. All you get is an acknowledgement.Total waste of time to register as not given any work.In addition, nobody seems to listen to what you say so you end up repeating the same thing to different people. The only thing I got from this agency was frustration and disappointment.

I came over to London from Canada with Career Teachers. The service they provided me throughout my entire transition was fantastic. Mike was extremely knowledgeable about the entire visa process and helped me through every stage. The places he helped me find were great, providing everything as soon as I arrived. Orientation was extremely helpful and really prepared me for my first day of school. I have been so busy since I've arrived and started working with Career Teachers, I'm really not sure what all these negative comments are about, I think it might just be negative people...

For the most part, they are a decent agency. The only negative criticism I have is for one of their consultants. On numerous occasions this particular consultant has sent me out to the wrong school, booked me in for a job when the school actually didn't need me, promised me more pay for a really tough school -so that I would accept the job- only to not follow through with her promises. Their clientele list isn't so great either - a lot of rough schools! They will tell you beforehand how 'lovely' and 'wonderful' the school is, but when you get there it's a whole different story!

I have nothing but glowing remarks to say about this agency. They supported me and had my paper work finished and ready by the time I arrived in the UK. I started teaching the day after my induction. They are fantastic to talk to about anything and they make every effort to make sure you are happy and supported. I have had work for the entire time I have been working for them and they found me a great long term job and negotiated the pay for me. Without a doubt this my favourite agency and I would not hesitate to recommend to others.

Arrived in London having already spoken to career teachers and their Australian agency knowing I was going to have regular work and I was not disappointed. Although some schools were a little rough I have had work every single day I have been in London, so for 6 months so far. Have found the agency to be extremely personable and have enjoyed my overall experience. Would definitely recommend them to all my teaching friends back home.

I was very fortunate in finding a full time position through Career Teachers in my 2nd week in London, though I missed their calls & was horribly sick. The agency has always been supportive, friendly and diligent. though it would be great if the pay was higher for TA's. Thank you for all your help so far. I would definite recommend this agency.

When I arrived in London Careers signed me up very quickly and with no fuss. Within a week of the new school year I was working. Since then I have had full weeks of work through them without any trouble. On the whole most of the schools I go to are within a decent travelling distance from my home. All of the staff are very nice and helpful and I would reccomend this agency without hesitation.
