I am a trainee teacher and found myself in a position where I had to leave my job to do a teaching placement. Once my placement was over I had another placement to complete in the October so was looking for a “stop gap” job where I could keep myself working in schools to stay in the loop but didn’t want anything too permanent due to my next placement. I can honestly say that joining Teaching Personnel was the best choice I made. I ended up working in one particular school until the summer and loved it. I could pick and choose my hours and did not feel pressured to work on days where I wasn’t available, leaving me more freedom to continue writing my essays and meeting deadlines for uni. Thanks TP!

I have been with Teaching Personnel since Sept 2018 and can honestly say that Ellie Stokes and her team have been amazing. They are always one call away for advice and support, keep in touch with you regarding your progress and are always touching base on how you are feeling and enjoying the position or role. I have always felt valued and never just a number. Best working experience ive encountered yet.

I am delighted with Teaching Personnel. Eli (Elisa Stokes) was helpful and supportive from Day One, keeping me informed each step of the way through the hiring process: which is understandably rigorous. I've been with TP since February 2019, and working steadily since March. Indeed I often turn days down, because i am that little bit disabled and cannot handle f/t work, at least not in a secondary school setting. However, I missed teaching and this provides that outlet for empathy, creativity and listening. I've been on long-term assignment with the same school, which will carry through to the 2019-20 school year, so students can become familiar with me, and me with them. Pay is very good, and prompt. I suggested a friend join TP and she is delighted: says she has never had to worry about her pay showing up: i hadnt realized that was a risk in this business. Another TP team member who was at my regular school is also very happy with TP. Everyone wins: I fulfill my desire to be an active member of my community; kids get a pretty good TA (forgive me but i do okay at this); and TP helps me and helps the schools. From my interactions with Dave at TP, he's an alright guy. Highly recommend signing up with Teaching Personnel.

Teaching Personnel has been amazing since the very start. I was contacted and offered an opportunity to work with them by an extremely polite and lovely person, and the application process (payments etc) were clearly relayed to me from the beginning. They understand and respect that my availability is slightly varied and more part-time than full-time (because I am currently a full-time student) and have still offered various opportunities to work at local schools. I joined TP hoping to build up my experience before diving into a PGCE and that's exactly what they've done. I was even offered a full-time position by a school that was really happy with my performance there! I've always been paid on time and with the correct amount, too. Overall, TP is truly wonderful and an important and fun stepping-stone for people who genuinely want to work with children in the future. I've loved every minute and can't thank the team enough.

I have been with the Hull Secondary branch for 3 years and have enjoyed representing them at many good and outstanding schools. They have been able to secure me both long term placements and day to day work during this period. Jim, Ellie & Bekkie have always been a pleasure to deal with since the day I registered. Teaching Personnel staff in my experience have always been friendly, helpful, honest and reliable.

Chloe, at the Preston Branch, has been absolutely amazing. She listened to my background and has understood and catered for all of my needs since I was recruited by Teaching Personnel. I have only been with the agency for 4 weeks and I have worked every day. Chloe is always providing me with jobs in lovely schools. She takes pride in her work and this shows through the amount of communication and time she puts in. She continues to put me forward for long term placements and is always working hard in the background. Thank you Chloe.

I have been working with Teaching Personnel on and off since Feb 2018 as a cover supervisor whilst I considered my career options. The service and level of understanding staff have shown (Particularly Siobhan) supporting me has been exceptional and I couldn't recommend them enough! They appreciated the days I wanted off and why, also getting me a long term placement at a school fitting around my schedule (not theirs), not only was it ideal for myself but for the school too so there was no extra pressure! Any other days I wanted work I was seldom disappointed. Every time I spoke with Siobhan she was extremely personable, easy to talk to giving a personal feel to the job, specifically when I was at a new school I always got a call at the end of the day checking how things went, whether I enjoyed it ... a nice touch to really show she cared - particularly when I was new to the role it gave me more confidence in her. I had a number of other agencies call me, but it never crossed my mind to even consider joining with them because of the service I had received at TP, why change something that is working. I thoroughly enjoyed my time working for them and wish the whole team all the best!

I have been working with Teaching Personnel on and off since 2017. They listen to you and get you work that you WANT to do! It's really important that you feel valued when doing supply and TP certainly go the extra mile. I just want to say a big Thank You to Siobhan, Jack, Doug, Blair and Ryan for all of their help and support. This experience has helped me find my way back into the job I love Full-time when I really just needed some time to get back into teaching on a Part-time basis. I recommend this agency whole-heartedly and good luck to you on your journey if you are reading this review.

Teaching Personnel were the only supply agency I was signed up with and there wasn't a single day I was without work within PRUs and SEMH schools during my time with them! The consultants I spoke with at the Tyne Tees branch were incredibly friendly, understanding and polite. Very quick to respond to calls and emails and would often check in on me to make sure my school placements were the right fit for me and letting me know any feedback given from schools. I would highly reccommend this agency!

Very helpful and personal touch but won't hesitate to push you under a bus without an explanation. I had 2 contracts cancelled without notice or explanation and finally left.

I was signed up with several agencies and the Teaching Personnel Manchester Secondary office was by far the best I worked with. One got the impression they really cared about you and were not in it for the money. They were always quick to respond via email or telephone and nothing was too much trouble. Their website was easy to use and there are lots of training events you can go to. One person who I must mention was Rob Jordan. He was my point of contact from my first initial contact, to my interview, throughout my year on supply and even when I secure full time employment. It was like having a mentor for the whole year who listen, advise and who had your best interests at heart. I can't praise him highly enough and would strongly recommend his branch to you.

Teaching Personnel have been absolutely wonderful in finding work for me in schools. The schools have been really good, and I have learnt so much! I strongly recommend using Teaching Personnel for finding work in schools and for progressing in a career. Ashleigh Raper and Melissa Brame have been really helpful and always stay in contact with me.
