I've been really impressed with AER, they have kept me informed and constantly letting me know about positions I would be interested in. Just after registering with them, I managed to get a full-time position in a school I loved and therefore haven't seen any of the schools AER have to offer but even so they update me which not many agencies will do. They also offer cover supervisor positions, which are harder to come by and suited my experience really well. I would highly recommend to others.

Have worked with AER since I arrived in London a year and a half ago, have not had a day without work as I was put straight into a beautiful school in a full time position.

I am a Canadian teacher who has been in England for 2 years now. I started with another company when I first came over and I had so many issues. When I was searching for a new agency I found from the very start that AER was the best: when I call I can talk to the same person, I can always get ahold of them, they are always personable and professional, the school they recommended is exactly as they said it would be, I never had issues with pay, and they pay more than any other agency I have come across. It has been an overall enjoyable experience and I would and do highly recommend them.

I have registered with I don't know how many agencies and worked for about 5 or 6. AER teachers is the only one I would recommend. It is the only agency I have come across where you're not just treated as another number, you feel like they actually care about the people the find work for and are there to support you. I've worked at quite a few different schools and nursery's over London and through AER have found a really lovely school. I work there as a teacher assistant but after working at this school I've decided that once I graduate I will do my teachers qualification.

AER Teachers is an absolute top notch agency and I can highly recommend them. Any queries I may have are dealt with promptly and in a very supportive and caring manner. Leanne and Deon do a fantastic job of looking after me. They have found me a fantastic position in a lovely school and I couldn't be happier. My initial six week post has turned into a long term position with the possibility of being kept on after July. Keep up the good work folks :o)

Easily the best agency I've dealt with in London. The staff at AER had by far the most personal touch and ultimately lined up my first full time job within a few weeks. I'm now at a fantastic school on a significantly higher pay rate than any other agency has offered. I highly recommend them.

The most honest and reliable agency I have dealt with to date! I joined them in November and they found me the perfect school in January! I was looked after by Amie who took the time to get to know me and understand what I was looking for. The AER Team are so friendly and supportive – I would galdly recommend them.

I have worked for several agencies in the UK over the past five years and recently AER has stood out as one of the most professional. I always felt that the consultants were keen to find the right placement for me, the rate of pay was impressive and the schools were mostly excellent. Thanks to the team.

AER Teachers were brilliant when I arrived in London from Cape Town, South Africa! It was my first time overseas and I was really worried about teaching in London. They provided me with help, support and training to get me through my interviews and first week of teaching! I have been in a long term at one school since September and things are going well, thanks to AER!

AER have been great to work with so and I have found the service I have received from Deon in particular to be top notch! Although I looking for long term work, Deon has managed to quickly find me daily supply in a great school where there are opportunities to pick up more days, so that's made my start in supply teaching a positive one, thanks!

Deon at AER Teachers was amazing to deal with. He helped find the right long term position in September last year when there was not much work out there. Unfortunately, I had to leave the post at Christmas and return to South Africa. AER Teachers were very understanding and supportive and did not blame me at all! I would recommend anyone to this agency – they only deal with long term work which is what I was looking for at the time. My pay rate was a lot more than my other agencies quoted me!

I have found working with AER Teachers to be a very positive experience. I was made to feel very welcome in their offices in Tower Bridge with a quick and easy interview and registration process. Deon managed to find me a great post at a very good Primary school which is hopefully going to lead to a permanent job! They have been calling me every week to find out how i am getting on which is a nice touch - will certainly recommend them to my mates.

From the moment I was in touch with my consultant from AER Teachers, I knew that it was more than just job recruitment for them. I was treated like an individual teacher and AER worked hard to match my qualities to a school where I could excel and come across new and exciting learning opportunities. I highly recommend AER Teachers. Thanks for the guidance, professionalism and ongoing support!
