A great agency who sorted me out with a long contract in a lovely school. Nat has always been incredibly friendly and helpful. The team couldn't have been more supportive during lockdown and school closures.

My experience at this agency has been amazing. I have dealt with Ashley and Raj, who have both been so helpful, friendly and professional. Both have been in contact to update me at every stage of the process to ensure that I knew what was going on. Within 2 weeks of signing up with the agency, I have secured long term supply work from September. I also love the app which keeps you informed of the progress with your application, lets you search for jobs and shows you your accepted jobs. Would definitely recommend this agency to anyone looking to find work in schools.

In October I applied to various teaching agencies in order to gain some experience working in schools. However, most did not even call back. I found out about Opogo via a friend and contacted them the next day. Within a week I was enlisted as a cover supervisor for the agency and was working in schools a couple of weeks later. I was shocked at how fast and easy the whole process of joining the agency was. Not to mention, the Opogo app is great and really easy to use. Also, they have a great support network who are on hand at all times in order to answer any questions or issues you may have. Natalie and Ashley have always been available whenever I had question or needed general help and contacted me every so often to check up on me. Overall, my time at Opogo has been fantastic and I would highly recommend the agency to anyone wanting to work in schools both for the short term or long term.

Such a lovely agency.the staff are lovely and approachable, the app is super easy to use and you still get lovely phone calls from your consultants to make sure everything is going well and have friendly chat. They offer both daily and long term supply options and the vast majority of schools that you visit are inclusive, friendly, helpful and professional. A great agency to go with.

This is the first agency I have worked for and I couldn't be happier. I have been working with Opogo for a few months now as a teaching assistant and my experience with them has been nothing short of fantastic. Ashley and Kim have been a joy to work with, are generous with their time and support, and have secured me bookings at fantastic schools. The app is great for providing availability and also for alerting you to opportunities you might be interested in. Highly recommended!

I am overwhelmed to share my experience with OPOGO. With teaching experience from my native country, I was having less hopes to get a job in the UK. OPOGO made my dream come true by providing the TA role in Primary and Secondary Schools. I enjoy working with children and each day fetches me lost of new learning and experiences. Always Thankful to OPOGO and my Recruitment Consultant Ashley Azad for constantly helping and supporting me in all my appointments. Thanks again!

So far Opogo has been a very nice and flexible agency to work with. They are not only very professional and polite, but they also try to keep you as busy as possible. I have had the pleasure and luck to be dealing with Lauren Clifton (as she is my consultant), a very recommendable person to work with, since she has always been very professional and understanding with me.

The Thames Teachers team is very approachable, friendly, professional, reliable and supportive. The Opogo app that lists both short-term and long-term assignments is very easy to use. In combination with the latest hustle-free technology, all the staff at Thames Teachers are always ready to offer dedicated support over the phone as well.

Thames Teachers maintained a high level of communication and offered an excellent variety of positions. I am now working full time with my previous placement and couldn't be happier there. Additionally, they often hold great talks focusing on different aspects of education. I've previously attended a very informative event on Autism and it was really helpful during my role. The support is there and the staff are such a delight to work with. At the time of working with them, you needed to use an external payroll which was a little bit of a hassle even with their recommendations. That was the only let down.

Thames teachers is an excellent, reliable and professional agency with very supportive consultants. They have an easy way to get up to date in all aspects through the Opogo app. I met Kim Clark (Consultant) and she has helped me a lot since then, giving me advice and support every time that I need it. I fully recommend Thames Teacher / Opogo.

It's difficult to summarise how incredible Thames Teachers/Opogo has been throughout my supply teaching journey. They are completely unique and unlike any other teaching agency with their personal service. You can see they really care about the individual and it's a small team which means you know everyone and they regularly communicate with each other, so no need to have constant phone calls from lots of different people. The Opogo app is simple to use and you can easily update your availability each week. If you want regular daily or short term work they make sure they find it for you. I have worked with Lauren, my Secondary Consultant over the last 18 months and in this time she has gone above and beyond. She really listens to your needs and is genuine in her honest, reliable advice. I think this really is the best teaching agency and I would 100% recommend Lauren and the team if you want a trustworthy agency that really cares about you and your future.

Thames Teachers is an excellent agency which recruits supply teachers from different backgrounds for cover supervision in schools. The agency has well connected consultants that are able to provide work for cover supervisors on a frequent basis in different schools across London. The Opogo App is an excellent means of logging your availability, corresponding with consultants, tracking where & which school you will be based at and monitoring your finance. I would highly recommend Thames Teachers for people that are interested in doing cover supervision in addition to another job or even as a gateway to enter full-time teaching.
