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!

Opogo are a great agency. The whole team are friendly, efficient and care about their teachers. There is excellent communication between staff members so you can be assured messages get through and you will always get a call back. My consultant, Lauren, is passionate, reliable and full of great advice. I can highly recommend the agency.

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.

Thames teachers is a great, supportive agency. All the consultants I have had the pleasure of working with have been fantastic at finding roles which match my needs and are approachable and professional. Communication is brilliant and all the schools I have been placed at have been excellent. The agency have found me long term positions and when on day supply work is always available. The Opogo app is very user friendly. Natalie has worked incredibly to find roles which suit me and this has resulted in a permanent position in a fantastic school. Thames Teachers is by far the best agency I have worked with and I highly recommend.

Thus far this has been the best teaching agency that I have worked with so far. They are professional and my consultant was simply the best. I could tell that she considered everything I told her as well as my personal circumstances in order to find me a suitable job. I got a job in one of the best schools in my borough and while I was there, my consultant was ensuring that I was okay and looked after. I've enjoyed every moment of being at this school and also working with Thames Teachers. I also love the fact that they have an app which has so many amazing features and so much to learn for my professional development. I would recommend this agency 110%

Last summer in 2018 I signed up to around six agencies. It was my first time doing supply work after 11 years of teaching. In the end I found only two agencies that were efficient, professional and had the human touch that I like so much. Thames Teachers were one of them. Thames Teachers were great for securing me long term work, and also part time (0.8), which is what I was looking for. I’m pretty sure that they sold me to the school and they’ve always shown me that they respect me for my experience. They’re quick to get back in touch, signing up is relatively easy, they run smoothly and the Opogo app is genius. Really really handy when it comes to timesheets. They also operate with both umbrella and PAYE options, which was important to me. If you’re looking for an agency I’d try these guys first.

Thames teachers is a great agency! I can't recommend them highly enough. Lauren, my consultant, has been so supportive, friendly and professional from day one and I am really thankful to her for giving me the opportunity of doing long term supply as a MFL teacher in an super amazing school. As well a big thank you to Nathaly, Johnny and the rest of the team@ Thames Teachers..you are so dedicated and helpful all the time. Opogo App to keep a good track of your work saved is a life saver too! Would highly recommend joining up with them!
