I found TARA as a very honest and reliable agency compared to the others. With my foreign degree I struggled to start working at schools. TARA was the first agency that put me into schools and helped to get the experience needed to become a fully qualified teacher. The staff (especially Lesley and Laura) is always there to help, support and listen to your needs and try to fit you into nice schools. It is a pleasure to be working with you!

Since leaving a full time job In a school that made me very un happy, meeting Lesley Sydrick, I felt a glimmer of hope. She listened to me and I felt she was genuinely interested in what I had to say. We are now in regular contact during the week where she sends me jobs for the week and wakes me in a morning where I go into schools last minute, when teachers are poorly. I often email her in the week to thank her for the work as the schools I work in are lovely, welcoming and supportive. I always thought having lots of new sets of children each day would be daunting but with a drama background I throw myself into it and love seeing new faces everyday, when I get to see them for a second time I leap out of bed! I have gained so much experience in a range of different schools and settings around Telford and wolverhampton and I am now loving what I do again! I even enjoy the marking again! It's crazy. I want to thank both Laura Hadebe and Lesley for being so approachable and friendly. They make me so happy I chose their company. They are an asset to TARA. Thanks so much for making me feel like I can do anything !

All the staff at Tara both Shrewsbury and Wolverhampton branches are very warm and welcoming. They have found me work and have supported me throughout the whole journey. It has been a really enjoyable experience. I would recommend them to anyone looking for supply or anyone who needs help finding a permanent position.

Superb agency, lovely personal and reliable service where there is never any delay in getting back to you. Their end-of-year, Macmillan coffee morning and other get togethers are unmissable. Cannot recommend highly enough.

I'm with other agencies as well as TARA, but TARA is the only agency that offers a caring attitude. I am treated like a real person by TARA, and not just a body going into a school to fill a gap. Also TARA offer regular CPD where you can liaise with other supply staff, and learn survival tips. WELL DONE to all of the TARA team!!

I have not been with Tara very long. Unlike some agencies, Tara take the needs of the individual into consideration. They keep in touch and give you opportunities to choose from. My favourite agency, Sara is excellent. I look forward to continued work with them.

What an excellence and interpersonal agency to work for! All staff are always happy, and help in any which way they can by giving expert advice. They always have work for me to attend to, and the schools that they work with are all amazing, professional, and welcoming. They're all like extended family!

I registered with Tara about two years ago. Their rate of pay is the highest out of all of the agencies I work with. The consultants take your wishes into account, are very friendly and will always try to make sure you're enjoying your time in their schools. Also, they are the only agency that have managed to get me work in my own subject area. As opposed to some of the other agencies I've worked with, Tara values their relationship with their teachers as much as their relationship with the schools. They treat their teachers with respect and it's therefore always nice to speak with one of the consultants. The schools I've been to have all been lovely. I live in a remote area and I don't like traveling more than approx. 20/25 minutes, but I'm still getting work regularly. If I'd be slightly less fussy, I could be working most days. Overall, I'd definitely recommend Tara to aspiring supply teachers.

Tara have helped reinvigorate my love of teaching by placing me in schools where I can get on with teaching. They were also able to work around my needs. Pay is around 110 a day but you feel important to them when you work with them. Not just any old agency. Thanks.
