I’m an Irish-trained Primary Teacher who found a long-term role in a private school straight away with Thames. This is an honest, professional and top-paying teaching agency that provided me with a friendly service.

I'm a Year 2 Teacher who found a permanent role within a week of registering with Thames Teachers. It has been a really positive experience as I've worked through a couple of agencies previously and Thames Teachers has been the best by far. My consultant actually listened to what I wanted and keeps in regular contact with me to see how it's all going. Highly recommended.

I arrived in the UK in June not having had any experience here. I approached 3 agencies who did not want to know me! I was beginning to lose hope when someone suggested I try Thames Teachers. They were lovely from the start and make every effort to find me work as a Teaching Assistant drawing from my experience back home. After a few days of supply I managed to secure a great job as a Learning Support Assistant in a primary school in Tower Hamlets. I am so happy to be working with early years as /I would eventually like to go back home to complete my B.Ed.

Nothing but good things to say about thames teachers. my consultant placed in me into a Maths post at a school in SW London. after a term I decided to move in with my partner in Seven Sisters. I was not enjoying the long commute and asked the agency if they would find me something closer to my new location. They did not mind at all and replaced me as well as finding me a great job in North London. I have just gone permanent at this new school - i believe these things happen for a reason and than Thames Teachers for making this happen!

I arrived in London, from New Zealand, in January and was not sure what to expect. I registered with two agencies before I left NZ. Thames Teachers made the extra effort to stay in touch prior to my departure, with regular Skype sessions and updates on opportunities. Things have been great so far. I have been in a Secondary school as a Maths Teacher and might even go permanent at the end of the term.

I come from an admin background and Thames Teachers were very efficient in finding me suitable work close to home. As a New Zealander who is based in London, I like to travel as much as possible and Thames Teachers has always found work that is flexible around my plans. It's a small and dedicated team and I don't feel like just another number in their system. I would strongly recommend them.

Jenna and the team at Thames Teachers continue to provide an excellent service. Juggling two jobs I have never been short of work when I have wanted daily supply teaching, and am being paid a good daily rate compared to other agencies in London. The quality of the schools I have worked in tend to be rated 'Good' or above, and I haven't had one negative experience in the last year. I really appreciate the work that the consultants put in, and the communication channels are fantastic. Definitely worth looking at if you're after short or longer term teaching vacancies across London!

I registered with Thames Teachers about a month ago. Since then they have given me about 1 day per week of supply work. The quality of the schools was quite bad despite being rated "outstanding" by ofsted. They promised me they had a lot of schools in my area but I didn't get a day that wasn't at least a 45 minute commute. When I asked my recruiter about this she admitted that they had no schools close by. I have stopped working for them because they will call and tell you a school is "outstanding" but there were lots of behaviour issues with the students! This has happened at almost every school that they sent me to. I find their communication in this regard to be very deceptive! They are more concerned with filling numbers than being honest about where you will be teaching. I am not sure how this agency has received such a high rating. However I did receive an email from my recruiter a couple of weeks ago urging all of their contractors to give them a 5 out of 5 rating on this web site.

I have recently come over from South Africa. After registering with Thames Teachers, my consultant told me that I would not have to bother with registering with another agency. He was right – I have landed the perfect primary Teaching Post in Westminster which is central. The school is lovely and I couldn’t be happier. They told me that I would be paid the equivalent to permanent staff members and have delivered on that promise. I highly recommend this agency. They were are friendly, professional and pay good rates.

Since joining Thames teacher I have been very impressed with their service. Deon and his team have gone out of their way to find me opportunities that suit my specific personal and teaching needs. They are always willing to offer advice, provide feedback and will discuss teaching options that benefit the teacher and their career above just getting you in a school-in other words, your not just a number to them! I would highly recommend Thames teachers to anyone! Plus the highest rate of pay is an added bonus!

I recently came over from South Africa and walked straight into a long-term role in a London primary school on a much higher rate than other agencies quoted me. I would recommend this agency to anyone coming over to London.

I’ve been working for Thames Teachers (AER) since January and they are always really helpful. I came over from New Zealand with the plan to travel as much as possible. I’m travelling and working as much as I possibly can and the team at Thames Teachers always keeps me busy with supply work when I’m in London. I can’t fault the service and personable approach of this agency. There are plenty agencies to choose from but I'm really happy with Thames Teachers and wouldn’t bother working for anyone else.
