Forward Teaching was recommended to me by a colleague in a previous school and, from the outset, I am so glad it was! Having joined a couple of other agencies, I soon ditched them as they were simply no match for Lottie’s honest, down-to-earth and friendly manner. Lottie really understands the world of education and has a wealth of knowledge and experience. I had never worked as a supply teacher before, and I have felt incredibly well-supported during each part of the process. Lottie has really listened to my particular needs and worked hard to find the right school for me. She regularly checks in to see how everything is going, and recently, when an issue arose, was there to listen and offer sound advice. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Forward Teaching to anyone looking for a ten-star service, with bells on!!

I couldn’t recommend a better agency to work with. During Covid I felt completely lost with job applications, was the longest time I had been unemployed and stumbled across Forward Teaching. Lottie is by far the most supportive agent I have come across within agency work. When I didn’t get jobs I wanted she picked me up and helped me feel confident that employment was soon coming my way. She was always in regular contact with me, reassuring me that she was active on my behalf. In just three weeks I was with a school for three terms and then Lottie helped me move to another school after where I ended up receiving a permanent contract. I couldn’t of found a better person to help me on this journey and feel eternally grateful for everything Lottie has done for me. Thank you Lottie.

An extremely personable and professional agency. Lottie (Team Leader) secured me a place at a school as a TA within a week of our initial interview. This agency goes above and beyond to make sure roles are filled with the most suitable candidates, tailored to the experience and needs of the school and employee. I worked for 3 months under Forward Teaching, and was regularly contacted for support, advice or a friendly chat. It’s inspirational to see such a tight knit, small team leading the education agency world in London. I would personally recommend this FT for anyone looking to work under a supportive, caring and just lovely agency. My experience with Forward Teaching has inspired me to pursue a career as a teacher, if that’s an indication of how the company is run!

Forward Teaching is the first agency I have signed up with after many years of full time teaching in schools. They have found me work for the days I need and in the year groups I asked for too. It was all very easy and straight forward. Lottie is very friendly and open, I feel I can call her if I'm having any issues and she's always makes time to chat. I don't think I'll need to look for another agency as so far Forward Teaching has provided me with all the work I need!

I've just got back into teaching after a few years away. I found my first job with the forward teaching agency. So far they have been very easy to work with and very upfront about everything. They are really good at maintaining contact with you, sending texts reminders about starting dates and times and also calling to check how everything is going. I appreciate this a lot!
