Absolutely awful. Wasted a lot of my time during registration. The contact I dealt with was completely clueless and kept moving goalposts and setting obstacles over documents required. Every time I sent what was asked for I was told to send something else. If it was possible I'd award no stars. My advice is not to go anywhere near them. They're totally incompetent and couldn't care less.

I have been working with Teaching Personnel (Leeds Branch) for almost a year now and i have to say they have been brilliant. The consultants are fantastic (Christian Whalshe) and are always there when you need to talk to them, work is consistent and pay is always on time.

I have taught through teaching personnel for over 3 years. It is rare that I have not had work and I have come back to them after having completing several maternity leave covers. I have found the Sheffield office professional and hard working, positively promoting my skills.

I have been working for Teaching Personnel since September 2013 through the Sheffield branch. I have been given plenty of work up until christmas, and am now on a long term placement until summer in a school i had told them i really enjoyed working at. The people in the office couldn't be more helpful and friendly, and i have been given a great range of teaching experience working with them. They took on board the key stages i wanted to work in the most but still offered me work in other year groups if it was available. As a newly qualified teaching the rate of pay isn't great, but i am not sure what it is in comparison to other agencies. The few i have heard of it is the same amount for. I therefore cannot comment on if it is good pay for more experienced teachers. I have had my payments at the right times every Friday, and never had an issue with not being paid the correct amount or not having my expenses included.

I've used TP on and off for seven years. I keep coming back to them in between permanent jobs because they listen to what you want from supply work, keep in good contact with you and are able to offer a fair amount of work.

I have worked for Teaching Personnel (Lincoln branch) for over two years now. During this time I have found them to be extremely supportive regarding my professional development as they often contact me regarding new positions I may be interested in, often encouraging me to try new things. The staff are always on hand if you are concerned about anything and I have found them to always have my best interests at heart. I am currently studying for a degree in Childhood and Youth Studies and working for Teaching Personnel has given me the flexibility to earn whilst I study. Overall a fantastic company to work for!

I have been working for Teaching Personnel West Manchester for almost a year and it's been fantastic. Most of the schools I work for are in South Manchester and everything has been great. The staff are dedicated and always do their best to get bookings.

Ive been registered with the west Manchester branch of teaching personnel for a while now and I've not had a single problem with them. They found me work the day after my initial interview and I haven't been without work since then (bar a couple of days). I've always found the staff to be incredibly friendly and polite and I feel that the service that they have done for me has been fantastic. I have worked in a variety of schools for TP since starting for them and have found all of the establishments associated with TP in this area to be highly professional and of a good quality. I would highly recommend this agency for anyone looking for work in this field.

I have been a supply TA with teaching personnel for nearly 6months. Over these 6months I have always been in a job. From speaking to other agencies they have said that they are garunteed to pay more than teaching personnel....but who would say they pay less. Both schools that i have worked it have been great and i have really enjoyed my time spent in them. The woman who I speak to most of the time, elli, could not be nicer and never makes you feel like you are an inconvenience. I have spoken to other staff members in the manchester branch and they also have been very friendly.

I joined Teaching Personnel as a NQT. I was unsure of the local area schools and needed my Induction Year supported. I was interviewed quickly and cleared and placed into day to day bookings in a variety of schools. I found some schools challenging, but was impressed with the support I received from the local office in making the right choices for longer term work. I was found a placement that started in September and this has continued for two terms. The school have now advised me that they will want me permanently from the summer onwards. My experience has been totally positive and I would recommend them to anyone

Teaching Personnel have worked hard to find me work on a daily or long term basis. I have been with this agency on and off for 5 years whilst I have been at university and since I qualified as a teacher 18 months ago. They understand my personal needs and find work that relate closely to my experience and specialised qualifications. I have worked across all ages so the work is varied day to day. All the schools that I have been sent to have been friendly, welcoming and supportive and I have been requested back on many occasions. The consultants are eager to find you work and are very friendly and approachable (Manchester Branch). I have recommended this agency to friends who have all had a positive and friendly experience.

I have had supply work with this agency for 2 full terms now and only had 3 days where work couldn't be found for me. my agent is very polite, efficient and knows my preferences well. They have been very helpful and encouraging, and they have now found me a 2 term block in a school starting tomorrow. Could not fault them. They don't pay as much as other agencies, but its still a reasonable rate. The online time booking system is great too, making planning my time easy to do.

I was Lied to.. I was told the work being offerd was a permanent position (Contracted Hours) Pro-Rata and that. Turned down a number of long term positions for the work. The pay is very low, it is a lot lower than what other agencies pay, I was never told who my worker was. I could bore you and go on with myself.. I turned up one day only to be sent home because there was no work, I had to pay for my own travel and was never refunded.

Awful, awful agency to work for. Rates of pay are appalling, undermining the profession as a whole. My experience has been so much like that of previous contributors. Having taught for 20 years I cannot believe the insulting rates of pay offered to me over the recent months. When asked by another agency what they were paying, my response left them stunned, "That's less than minimum wage! How can they get away with it?" Only if we let them, I suppose. Despite refusing assignments, they pestered me to accept and then cancelled. I thought this was for genuine reasons but having read other comments on this site I suspect that they simply found someone cheaper. Having asked only to be considered for teaching my subject, they rang me 3 consecutive mornings (and late at that) with LSA and CS jobs miles away. One of these was working with students with severe special needs of which I have no experience. It's downright irresponsible. It just confirms what others have said, that this agency is working purely for profit with no integrity when it comes to serving the needs of the student, school or agency worker. If we allow agencies like this one to call the shots we are contributing to the dismantling of the pay structure and a fair wage for a demanding job. Avoid them if at all possible.

First impressions not good. Promised call backs failed to materialise and emails unanswered. To all the schools looking for staff, there are many quality ambitious teachers out there that you may never hear about. I will now be ignoring all contact from them. I will not do business with any company that cannot keep their promises.
