I really only have good things to say about Career Teachers. Jess was amazing in assisting me with all the things I needed when moving to London from Australia. They helped with my bank account, finding a place to live and provided me with work straight away. The orientation was excellent and was a great introduction to the UK School System and they were helpful even with the small things like making sure we didn't say Australian words like 'pants' instead of 'trousers'. :) I signed up with two agencies, because this was what was suggested to me by someone who was doing supply in 2010. She said she needed two agencies in order to get enough work, but in the most part I have actually found it really difficult juggling the two. There have been a few patches where there hasn't been too much work available, but Louise, Dave and Matt are always on the look out and try to keep you informed. Career are really good at trying to give you your preferences too i.e. I much prefer KS1 and Foundation and very rarely have I been given KS2 classes. I have predominantly worked in East and West London and some schools have been amazing and others really challenging. Career are really good when it comes to you not wanting to go back to a school for any reason. I have only had to do this once. Other agencies do offer 'Guaranteed Supply Contracts' though, which is something I think this agency should consider to ensure teachers do not go with other agencies simply for the peace of mind of always getting work. This is what I have been offered with another agency for September 2012. I would definitely recommend Career Teachers!

I am pleased with the amount of work they found me. The only time I did not work was when I didn't want to work. Overall, the was only two days that I wanted to work, but didn't. These days were right after the holidays. The staff is very caring and attentive to needs. Although the payroll service that they suggest is not fantastic, the agency itself is very good. They have excellent schools and mediocre school. I have never been in a school where I did not feel supported as a supply teacher. They have also offered me on multiple occasions a chance to work long term in one school

I've really enjoyed my time teaching in London The staff at Career Teachers helped to make the transition from home really easy and stress free. In all my dealings with the staff at Career Teachers I've been treated well and any issues have been resolved quickly. I've never been out of work and I've found that the schools offered to me have been good and not too far from home. Competitive rate of pay also.

Of the two agencies i'm registered with CT has given me the most work. I've had excellent experiences at all the schools they have sent me to and feel the relationships i've built with my consultants are open and honest. I would highly recommend CT to any teacher wanting to supply teach in London.

I have been working for this agency for a few years and I am still very pleased with the service they provide. I have been sent to a good school and experienced a lot of fantastic moments across London. I would absolutely recommend Career Teachers to new teachers, who would like to an excellent experience in UK.

I've been working for them for a while, it was a relatively slow start but once I was established i.e. got good feedback from schools they offered a decent amount of work.

Careers signed me up before I left Australia. However, when arrived I received zero work. After badging them I started to get regular work for the term. Most schools were not the nicest places. I find the consultants really play favourites though. I have a friend also registered with this agency and they get work every day and early calls. I find these days I barely get work and when I do it is extremely late calls and I have already accepted work with other agencies. They are so-so.

I have recently went back to working day to day supply, and Career has gotten me work even thought this is the 'slow season' (end of Easter hols to end of the year). Even if I can't get the opportunity to have a day of teaching, they do give me a call and give me invigilator work. As I see it, some money is better than no money. I know most of the consultants and they are always great and return your phone calls promptly. I'm in good hands.

I signed up with Career Teachers over a year ago back in Australia, they were fantastic in helping me get ready for my big move. Once I arrived in London they helped me set up a bank account and had work waiting. I also found the orientation fantastic as not only did I learn about the UK school system I made fabulous friends who I still keep in contact with and see on a weekly basis now. Career have provided me with plenty of work (I have thought about joining other agenices but haven't had to). The quality of schools are great, to this day after many different schools and classes I am yet to attend a school that I would not return to, while some days are tough it is often due to that class not the school. I find the staff to be very helpful and friendly and Careers also regularly organise social events which are a great way of meeting new people and making new friends. I would highly recommend Career Teachers to anybody that is looking for a Teaching Agency.

I signed up with Career Teachers and with another agency, and CT were a thousand times better than the other! When i first arrived, they gave me supply work every day in great schools and for the last 9 months i have had a full-time PPA role at an amazing school that is so close to home. Career Teachers have been helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

I have always found Career Teachers staff to be friendly and honest. They are not all about making a sale like I have found with my other agency. They see me a person and not a way of making money and I like that. I have always been sent to schools that are close to the area I live in and the schools are generally fantastic.

I have been working for the agency for over a year. This is the best agency that I've ever worked for and I worked for 5 different agencies. They are extremely understanding, helpful and last but not least honest. When my phone rings in the morning and I see their number on the screen, I pick the phone up straightaway, whereas for the other agencies I'm a little reluctant :)))

Career Teachers, has been straight forward and easy to work with. Other agencies may be larger but don't provide such good service. Another aspect which is better than expected is the honesty regarding the schools they send you to.

I have been working for Career Teachers for 3 years and they provide a service that is second to none! In the past, I have worked for most of the main teaching agencies, yet none compare to Career Teachers! NONE! The Consultants are friendly, supportive, not pushy, never rude, respectful and honest with ALL that they do. Whenever I have a query, they provide an answer straight away or by the end of the day. There is NEVER a problem in getting work as I have had work throughout the time I have been with them. They always provide me with work within my preferred North/East London area and they have NEVER forced me to travel beyond my preferred zones. Louise, Becky, Jo, Stuart and Dave have ALL been so supportive in terms of providing me with a constant flow of work, that I remain loyal to them. I have never felt a need to leave Career Teachers, so I believe they are stuck with me for life!!!!! So if you are looking to join an agency, my advice would be join Career Teachers as they are a cut above the rest!

I have been very pleased with my experience with Career Teachers so far. I had signed up with another agency as well, but decided to stick with Career Teachers as the consultants are very easy to work with. They really do try to find schools in your local area (and I have moved to different locations) and I have been lucky in being sent to schools fairly close by, so travel time hasn't been a great struggle. Signing up with the agency was a quick procedure and the Canadian team is fantastic. Calls are always answered and any queries are taken care of right away. Great agency!

This a decent agency. They are very personable and very welcoming to new teachers. The quality of schools are alright, with some being great and some not. They are honest and it is important to realize some times of the year are quite slow. I am going to be in the UK next September and would continue to work with this agency.

I can honestly say that I have been overly impressed with Career Teachers. I have worked every day since I started in September 2010. I have been introduced to three good quality schools over the last two years. Both Brett and Stewart are incredibly honest, hard working, understanding and take pride in doing their job and making you comfortable and happy.
