it hasnt been long since joining PPA EDUCATION agency, i joined in march and i am quiet new to the agency work plus its my very first paied job. but all i can say is that this agency is the best, my consultants are Bhupesh and Shaz and they are very nice, helpful and they try there best to get me into a job as a temp. i did have some difficulties with understanding how the pay works but after communicating with James and the way he explained to me how everything works, i found out that how the agency stuff works wasnt too hard lol. they are very professional, kind, friendly, and very helpful. i would like to thank PPA Education for all the help and the effort they put in their work. really would recommend this to anyone who wants to work as a temp.

Ppa education has given me a chance to earn and has always been up front and honest with me. Ppa education hasn't placed me within a school so therefore cant rate the school placements. Overall very happy to be working with this agency.

PPA is a good agency, who are professional. They have responded to my queries positively and promptly. My consultant Shaz has been very helpful indeed, I receive calls on almost a daily basis for bookings and the schools and nurseries I have worked in are fantastic!

I met James in December 2012, the day after I had sent my CV. The following week I was working in a fantastic PRU and have been there since. James is very hard working, honest and easy to get along with. I get calls asking how I am doing from my consultant. There was a slight mix up with my first pay and this was rectified quickly and efficiently. There is no paperwork except a time sheet and all payslips are online. What I love about PPA is that they are professional let very personable. I am very happy with the set up and would recommend PPA to anyone looking for work.

I have been working with PPA since September 2012 and on the whole they have made my life pretty easy in terms of getting work when I need it and understanding my needs/requirements. They cover some pretty difficult schools so the quality of schools isn't there fault as such. 80% of the time I have been able to have work scheduled in advance which I much prefer; the worst periods appear to be straight after a half term break. Pay is easy to deal with, no time sheets to fill out. Their rate may be a little lower than some but I believe your net pay might be better though due to your method of pay. The owner is very honest and both personable and professional.

I found a long term teaching job after being with PPA for a very short time. They pay very well and I love the Children's centre I have ended up in! I would recommend using PPA, especially for early years roles.

I am new to agency work and was a little nervous about going back to the workplace after a long break. However, my consultant, Shaz, was very reassuring about everything involved with the workplace and the money side of things, including use of the umbrella co. So really, I only have good things to say about PPA-education.

Excellent Excellent agency!!!highly recommendable. I have not had any problems with PPA , always offering me work. My contact there is Shaz, he is very understanding, helpful,friendly and Professional. PPA has given me the opportunity to work in very good settings where I've applied my skills knowledge and I've also gained more skills, knowledge and experience. If you are hardworking and like to maintain high standard with regards to your work you wont have any problems with PPA they will always offer you work or the schools will ask for you to be booked.

It has been a great experience so far with PPA Education. The schools i worked in were great. The only thing was that there were some days where I wasnt paid, which kinda put me off a bit, but generally, it's worth working for.

From the moment I spoke to James when I registered I have been impressed with their honesty and professionalism. I get regular work from PPA and their reps are always on the ball, looking for jobs that fit my skill sector. Through their placements, I have gained valuable experience working across all key stages, which has helped develop as a teacher in a must positive way. An excellent agency with strong morals, not the type to just chuck you in somewhere so they can get their commission, I thoroughly recommend them. Don't hesitate, give them a call!!

Rude, arrogant and unprofessional in dealings with me. Told 'you're only a supply teacher so not suitable' when in interim senior management post and applying for senior post. If it were possible to give no stars that is what it would get.

A very unprofessional agency. The management of this agency is rude. They tried to force me into an Umbrella scheme and I was told I had to join the Umbrella scheme to work for them so I said ok I won't work for you... then I was allowed to work without the Umbrella scheme?!? The director is always very nasty on the phone in fact on one occasion, in the middle of a conversation with the Director, he hung up on me. I have loyally followed his instructions to the letter only to be then accused of 'pedantism'. I don't expect to have insults thrown at me from my agency but this agency offers no support or moral just throws the proverbial muck at you when you ask to be paid. They have not paid me for several days worked and when I requested this I recieved a very rude email response... I mean how dare I ask to be paid for the hours I have done! Outrageous!!

Very bad experience with this agency. They sent me to the worst school in England on my very first appointment with them. Constantly hounded by them in terms of receiving calls for availability, but never getting work. Awful liars in terms of how much work they actually have, kept claiming to be really busy, yet never received work from them! Very rude consultants when politely asked why they weren't giving me work- made up excuses and knocked me £20 on my daily rate! Don't join them- you will live to regret it!

I joined PPA in 2011 and heard noting more from them for over a year. Then, out of the blue, I received a call saying that PPA was 'under new management' and would I like to stay on their books as they had 'lots of work coming up', if I would just like to renew my CRB. Nothing further after this, though.

When I first arrived to London, PPA were the best. But not for long. I worked with them over a term and had 2-3 days a week of work on average. This was lovely and my 2 main contacts in the office were always personable and helpful. Then I got a long-term position with another agency. And PPA became very rude. And as they expanded in size I kept getting emails and calls from new members of staff requesting documents that the agency already held copies of. When I politely declined an interview at a school that, while it sounded very great, was just too far away to commute to, the director hung up on me. And since then the agency never responded to my communication. After a few months of trying, I gave up. For the past year+ I haven't been using PPA. They went from professional and courteous to unprofessional, poorly managed, and un-recommendable.
