Extremely professional, found me a job within hours after I registered. Have found me a long term supply job in the type of school I requested. Would highly recommend Thames Teachers/Opogo.

Thames Teachers maintained a high level of communication and offered an excellent variety of positions. I am now working full time with my previous placement and couldn't be happier there. Additionally, they often hold great talks focusing on different aspects of education. I've previously attended a very informative event on Autism and it was really helpful during my role. The support is there and the staff are such a delight to work with. At the time of working with them, you needed to use an external payroll which was a little bit of a hassle even with their recommendations. That was the only let down.

Thames teachers is an excellent, reliable and professional agency with very supportive consultants. They have an easy way to get up to date in all aspects through the Opogo app. I met Kim Clark (Consultant) and she has helped me a lot since then, giving me advice and support every time that I need it. I fully recommend Thames Teacher / Opogo.

It's difficult to summarise how incredible Thames Teachers/Opogo has been throughout my supply teaching journey. They are completely unique and unlike any other teaching agency with their personal service. You can see they really care about the individual and it's a small team which means you know everyone and they regularly communicate with each other, so no need to have constant phone calls from lots of different people. The Opogo app is simple to use and you can easily update your availability each week. If you want regular daily or short term work they make sure they find it for you. I have worked with Lauren, my Secondary Consultant over the last 18 months and in this time she has gone above and beyond. She really listens to your needs and is genuine in her honest, reliable advice. I think this really is the best teaching agency and I would 100% recommend Lauren and the team if you want a trustworthy agency that really cares about you and your future.

Thames Teachers is an excellent agency which recruits supply teachers from different backgrounds for cover supervision in schools. The agency has well connected consultants that are able to provide work for cover supervisors on a frequent basis in different schools across London. The Opogo App is an excellent means of logging your availability, corresponding with consultants, tracking where & which school you will be based at and monitoring your finance. I would highly recommend Thames Teachers for people that are interested in doing cover supervision in addition to another job or even as a gateway to enter full-time teaching.

Thames teachers is a great, supportive agency. All the consultants I have had the pleasure of working with have been fantastic at finding roles which match my needs and are approachable and professional. Communication is brilliant and all the schools I have been placed at have been excellent. The agency have found me long term positions and when on day supply work is always available. The Opogo app is very user friendly. Natalie has worked incredibly to find roles which suit me and this has resulted in a permanent position in a fantastic school. Thames Teachers is by far the best agency I have worked with and I highly recommend.

Thus far this has been the best teaching agency that I have worked with so far. They are professional and my consultant was simply the best. I could tell that she considered everything I told her as well as my personal circumstances in order to find me a suitable job. I got a job in one of the best schools in my borough and while I was there, my consultant was ensuring that I was okay and looked after. I've enjoyed every moment of being at this school and also working with Thames Teachers. I also love the fact that they have an app which has so many amazing features and so much to learn for my professional development. I would recommend this agency 110%

Last summer in 2018 I signed up to around six agencies. It was my first time doing supply work after 11 years of teaching. In the end I found only two agencies that were efficient, professional and had the human touch that I like so much. Thames Teachers were one of them. Thames Teachers were great for securing me long term work, and also part time (0.8), which is what I was looking for. I’m pretty sure that they sold me to the school and they’ve always shown me that they respect me for my experience. They’re quick to get back in touch, signing up is relatively easy, they run smoothly and the Opogo app is genius. Really really handy when it comes to timesheets. They also operate with both umbrella and PAYE options, which was important to me. If you’re looking for an agency I’d try these guys first.

Thames teachers is a great agency! I can't recommend them highly enough. Lauren, my consultant, has been so supportive, friendly and professional from day one and I am really thankful to her for giving me the opportunity of doing long term supply as a MFL teacher in an super amazing school. As well a big thank you to Nathaly, Johnny and the rest of the team@ Thames Teachers..you are so dedicated and helpful all the time. Opogo App to keep a good track of your work saved is a life saver too! Would highly recommend joining up with them!

I've been recommended to Thames Teachers by my friend and it's undoubtedly an A* agency. The people working in this agency are fantastic. Johnny is my consultant who I'm always in touch with and he is so respectful, kind, friendly and simply the best. He always does his best to get me work in the school where I want and that happens 99% of the time. In my case I have to turn down work because I can't work every day because of other commitments. So with Thames Teachers I never have to even worry about not getting enough work. I'd highly recommend this agency to anyone who's looking for flexible supply teacher jobs.

I have been working with Thames Teachers for a few months now and since I registered with them I had a good feeling about them. I have had the pleasure to work with Johnny, Natalie and Lauren, who apart from being extremely supportive, approachable, dedicated and friendly, are amazing professionals . This team always try to find the right place for me and they truly care about their staff ( they call you regularly to check up on how your day has been, they call you to find out how your journey was...) It is a great feeling to being working with an agency and not for an agency. I thank them for all the work they have provide me with and for their efficiency. I also would like to congratulate to all the staff who make this agency so amazingly unique!!

Thames have secured me long term contracts for the last 18 months which is what I was looking for after 6 months of day to day and short term supply in London. They have tried to find me high quality schools (currently at an OFSTED Outstanding school) and don't try to make you do things you don't want to do. If I wasn't comfortable or didn't like a school, I would be allowed to leave (which some agencies get mad about or try to pressure you). Very supportive staff, always answer phones and emails. They pay through the umbrella company 'generate'. Timesheets are completed via an app, not on paper.
