Worst agency ever. Rude consultants and dismissive attitude. I did two days work for them last year and to this day have not been paid. I am taking this matter further.

Negative * Rude over the phone. * When you turn work down because it's too far they become aggressive. * Promise you 'local' schools but in all honesty it's at least an hour away. * Delayed payments. * Lost one of my documents during registration. The positive is * Fancy office. How do they pay for that? With our commission that they take. * Kept me real busy, lots of schools. * schools are really good quality, how could this jack ass of an agency get these schools? They know how to blag. Find another agency.

Avoid at all costs Applied for a TA job and got a call inviting me to an interview really quick. Thought this is okay. The consultant interview was rearranged several times and when it was planned, my consultant arrived 30 mins late. ( These people are meant to be career consultants yet cannot turn up on time). The next stage was a trial day at the school, which involved a full days work, with no expensed paid. Was meant to recieve feedback from the trial as to whether i got the job. After a week I had to call my consultant who promptly made an excuse and said he would contact me when he found out more information. I never got that contact!!!. I spent so much of my time, yet they did not have the common decency to just inform me that I didn't get the job. This compnay may portray that they want to help you get a job in education, yet are only after one thing. MONEY. As soon as you are not worth anything they will drop you. Even if you get offered a job, they still will be taking a large cut of your wage. BEWARE

I am still waiting for payment for two days work carried out for this company in April. I am entirely dissatisfied with their attitude to this.They often have an aggressive attitude on the phone and are entirely unprofessional in my opinion. I will never do work for them again.

An honest company. Were frank at interview and stated that good teachers would always be offered work but poor teachers would not be asked to return to schools. It is the schools that offer the work and the agency tries to find the best person for the job. I am pleased that schools request me when a vacancy arises. Schools request that certain teachers shouldn't return there.

I applied to a position online and was brought in to register and told that they had two positions set up already for me. They then told me that they would put through a CRB for me and take the payment out of my first pay cheque. I then heard nothing from them until one week later when a different agent emailed saying she was taking over my case. She then asked me to pay for the CRB. I enquired as to why that would be when I signed a document saying they could take the payment out of my first pay cheque. It has now been two weeks later and I have had no response what so ever. These people just want to take on new clients so that they look good. They are not finding people work. I have heard many stories that are similar to mine. They are just sharks.

I registered a few months ago and while my file was being made compliant didn't hear from them. However, once everything was done I immediately started getting calls and bees given work all the time. The schools are good but even if they weren't, I don't think we can blame the agency and after all, ALL students are entitled to an education so we supply's have to be there for them. Love the agency. Would recommend

Avoid these people !! The male staff are aggressive. They love to flirt with female teachers/ta's but because I'm a bloke they just wanted to get me off the phone. Called them to report an incident where a child could have been seriously harmed and all they did was laugh behind my back. This is a business, they don't care about anything but money.

Very pleased with the amount of work and the pay rate offered by Destination Education. Very supportive staff who always give me all the info and support I might need. It is my favourite agency to work with and I highly recommend it.

I registered with this agency in the hope of finding an NQT role but this is not possible, with agencies, as I now know. The consultant who saw me was friendly and personable and she placed me for five days of supply work since I registered in November last year, but have had no further contact from them. That is how the work situation is currently, I do appreciate the lack of available jobs and its 99% luck if anything that you land a good role that you want. I used to blame agencies when I first started out but now know it is out of their hands whether you get a job or not!

They really sold it at the interview and it started off ok. But after a week or two calls were coming very late in the mornings, schools were very far away (2 hours in some cases). Would regularly not disclose whether it was for cover supervisor or supply, and also on half day or full day. Still waiting on pay owed after I secured a long-term position with another agency! Have contacted them numerous times but still waiting on this to be resolved 3 months on!

Destination were very helpful. A little disorganised but well meaning, no problem with money after I joined some outfit in guernsey or jersey... Some kind of tax dodge, but if it's legal then why not. Vibe in the other hand seem to be getting known as a supplyer of hot little babes from down under, kiwis or Aussies, if you are a mature male, looking formTA work, , they will take all your details be prepared to never hear from them.. This suspicion of mine, re vibe was confirmed when I was speaking to a head of a school using only vibe, he had noticed the same, an endless supply of pin ups from aus and nz - .. He offered to write a recommendation to vibe on my behalf, but insisted that if I made it to interview a short skirt and pasties might be beneficial. As a 6'3 male I am sure it would leave an impression. Just my opinions based on personal experiences.

i'm quite shocked by many of the reviews here. I have only worked with one agency and decided to register with Destination as I was recommended by a friend who had worked for other agencies but preferred Destination. I have had work everyday since I arrived here, except for days I have requested not to work which the agency were fine about. I have also been offered a few 'blocks' of work which I have turned down as I'm here on a working holiday. Yes, I have been sent to one awful school but when I requested to not be sent back there again they were very obliging. I have also let them know which schools i prefer and if they come up then they try and get me into that school. Everytime they call they are friendly and happy. I did have a couple of issues with getting paperwork together but that was a combination of factors, including some of it being my fault. I have had no issues with getting paid whatsoever. The pay is quite ok but im unsure what other agencies offer. I would definitely recommend them.

I sent my email to them, received a voice mail from someone the next day asking to call them back. Spoke to a different person,and was told the person that I asked for would call me back as he is out of the office - no call back whatsoever! Called them again the next day, spoke to the person who contacted me the first time, told me he would call me back - again nothing! Have not heard from them and do not intend to waste my time with them ever again!!! Absolute rubbish!!

Destination Education has been a great agency to work for. They are professional, unique, reliable, honest, trustworthy and excellent communicators. Steve Gowers and staff have promised to keep me working and kept their promise. I'm so pleased I work for Destination Education.

Had joined 3 agencies previous to Destination, who found me a grand total of 1 days work between them. A week after i'd registered with Destination i was placed with a school, and had an interview for another. Haven't been without work since. Nothing but good service, would highly recommend.

I have been working for Destination Education and for the boys who run it since 2005. I have always been in work when I wanted it and have been offered great support by the team. Destintion Education are the best agency in London, offering a friendly, reliable service. Make sure you register with them!

Last week, Destinantion called me three times to offer me work, which they promised to confirm, but never did. I called them often and they never called me back. This morning, I called in to ask for supply work. They confirmed all the details of the school, and whilst I was on my way I called the school to let them know I was coming. A good job I did. The school hadn't even requested a cover, the guys had sent me out on a wrong assumption. This was a school about an hours journey from my house. I wasted sleep and stress getting there, and there was no need.

Agency sent me to a school with a view to a long term position, one which I decided not to take. Though I immediately told the agency I wasn't going to be taking the job, they failed to pass this information onto the school, who were left expecting me to turn up to start work five weeks later. Embarrassing for me, massive implications for school - all down to Destination's incompetence.

Hi everyone!!! Destination are only agency I have signed up for and have to admit they have been quite supportive and friendly so far. Think I have had quite a few jobs per week since I signed up....and staff have usually been understanding to. Maybe it depends also on the areas we live in but otherwise no serious complaints. But if you really aren't happy then definitely try another agency. Best of luck everyone :-)
