I have been working for SANZA/Tradewind for the last year and a half. I started off as supply and found the agents I worked with very supportive and helpful. They were supportive if I had a bad day which sometimes happens in this big city, which I found really useful when teaching on the other side of the world from my usual support networks. My current agent Liza always listened carefully to what I wanted in a permanent position and allowed me to have trial days to get a feel of a place before accepting a position . I have always had plenty of work and options. I feel that I have a competitive pay in comparison to other agencies. I would strongly recommend SANZA to friends and family wanting to teach in the UK.

Liza's been ace! As soon as my C.V. was received, She gained me a position, where I've remained since 09/2015. Thanks also, for her help, making my C.V, more attractive. Chris.

They really take the time to listen to your experiences and find you somewhere that you will thrive. Best decision I've made was signing up. They are completely honest and very competitive with their pay.

I have the utmost faith in SANZA who found me my first school position, exactly as promised. Am looking forward to a long continuing relationship with them.

My experience with Sanza has been great, they have offered me different positions in different schools, some of them better than others, and they have always been really attentive and kind. The rate of pay in comparison with other agencies is fair, in my opinion the overall service is very good.

Olivia Walsh, I think you are really unethical and gutless to not bother responding to my previous 2 emails (sent to your work and hotmail address). You knew that school was a special measures shit school and you still happily wasted my time communicating with me for months to organise the placement there. And you DID NOT 'get me the flights'. You weren't smart enough to ask. I asked for this in the Skype interview and this was agreed upon then. You just happily let me waste my time and money moving to shitty Thetford and waste my money buying new home items such as pots and pans and mattress and just hoped I would stay long enough for you to 'earn' your commission. Your email describing the school said that Thetford Academy is "a nice school in the country" when it was a Special Measures school in an impoverished area. Not once during our numerous phone and email communication prior to me leaving Australia did you mention that the school was in Special Measures. I spent more than 5k Aud to move and rent a place in Thetford and then break lease to leave. I googled 'Special Measures' after I arrived in that dump and realised that the school had around 25-30 percent staff turnover out of 100 teaching staff. This was a total waste of my time and money. Fly across the world for a dump. And you "didn't get my flights paid for". I asked for this in my interview via Skype and received this. My flights reimbursement was certainly not due to any effort or negotiation skills on your part. I also asked about pension in England and you never bothered to respond. The money I spent to move and the time was a waste. A dump Special Measures school for 31k pa is a waste of my time. An impoverished area such as Thetford is also a waste of my time as it is a decrease in my lifestyle. I think you are very unethical for not disclosing this Special Measures status to me before I left Australia. And gutless for not responding after I was placed in a shithole dump. You wasted my time and money.

I must say that I think many of the comments on here have been written by Tradewind/Sanza staff! This is another dodgy outfit making private profit from public education. There’s plenty of work to be had from them, BUT… 1. They were originally called two different names as a scam to play schools off against each other thinking it was fair competition. 2. They break the law by not telling teachers about the Agency Workers Regulations under which we should be paid full union rate after 12 weeks (look this up- you could be owed thousands!) 3. They always tell teachers, “We won’t be able to find you work if you ask for too much”. Rubbish- there’s never been such a shortage of supply teachers. Don’t work for less than £135 a day and choose your schools! 4. Their staff have almost no experience of teaching and are under such pressure will tell you anything for the commission. Don’t believe them- even the nice ones! 5. They like to pay through ISS- a bunch of tax dodgers based (they pretend) in the Channel Islands who are currently under investigation by HMRC.

There sign up process was difficult to begin with & they groaned & talked poorly of other agencies. They promised a lot of work however I never worked one day with them due to them never finding me work. As a special education teacher they often called to say they had positions that I was not trained to do & had no experience in eg mainstream English teacher. They also offered a low pay rate.

A very personable bunch of people, who maintain contact, giving you what seem to be decent prospects, which always come to nothing. My one big issue with SANZA is that they do not always tell you when a booking has been cancelled, so you turn up tot he school only to be turned away.

They were friendly, but definitely did not find work at all for me. I received calls from various people in the agency asking me the same question. "Yes! I am available for supply work tomorrow" yet I still have to call in every day of the week and have had absolutely no luck with work. They seem promising by saying that there will be work in the next day/week/month but it has been nearly 3 weeks and absolutely nothing has come up yet. Definitely time to look for another agency!

I came to Sanza after being discouraged by another teaching agency. I was immediately given work everyday and even given feedback on my performance at each school. They paid an extra 25 pound per day than the other teaching agency I was with and were quick to respond to any requests or calls I had. Another benefit was having Tradewind to also supply additional work, so you got two agencies, for one!

I registered with SANZA after the agency I came to the UK with did not offer enough daily work. They were very friendly from the beginning and quickly processed my documents so I could start working. Because you also get access to Tradewind when you join SANZA, the likelihood of getting work is increased, which is nice. The schools have been mixed as far as behaviour but that seems to be the consensus in London. Overall, SANZA is definitely worth a look when considering agencies.

Although, I've not worked with Sanza that much because of pre-bookings, they have still been able to offer me work a couple times a week. They are always very friendly and personable.

While I did not end up doing any work for "Sanza", my overall experience with them is mostly pleasant. They were more honest than other companies, with regards to the amount of work available. However they were unable to secure me even an interview, let alone a teaching position. I would stress that potential teachers not move overseas unless they have secured a permanent position at one school - simply hoping for supply work is not a reliable option.
