I would strongly recommend Timeplan Education teaching Agency. They are really friendly and professional. I have been working with them more than 6 months! They always have had a school for me, and they offered me long term positions quite often.

I worked for TimePlan for just over a year and a half in London (I left because I recently got onto the supply list in my hometown). I have no complaints. My experiences prepared me for my interview to get on the supply list back home, so now I am set. I had an amazing travel experience, was in a variety of schools and taught the full range of what they call primary education (elementary here in Ontario). I went to the UK as a junior/intermediate teacher, but have since got my primary qualifications after experiencing what they call key stage 1 in England. I love the little ones. Now primary/junior is where I realized my heart is. I honestly wouldn't have been able to have experienced that much growth both as a teacher and in my understanding of what I wanted as a teacher without my experiences in the UK. Thank you TimePlan

I signed up with Timeplan while I was still in South Africa. I was really nervous about moving to the UK and teaching here as I had heard so many stories from people I knew. I signed up with a few agencies but found Timeplan gave me all the info I needed. I found the move over here challenging and my coordintor at TimePlan really helped me try settle. I started supply teaching with tem and another agency but found I was always working for TimePlan- I liked their schools a lot more. I have now found a long-term job until the end of the school year through TimePlan which has really helped me start to enjoy my time in the UK.

Registered with a couple of agencies in NZ and although I didn't first start in the U.K with TimePlan I soon changed over to them. Firstly they were able to organise housing for me with other TimePlan teachers and put me straight on a guaranteed supply scheme. The coordinators that placed me were teachers themselves and unlike the agency I started with would regularly call me to see how things were going. The housing combined with their teacher socials made me and my housemates feel like they cared about my overseas experience, not just getting me a job. Finally recent pay rises they have given me due to good feedback schools have given them about me make me feel like a valued and appreciated employee

TimePlan was recommended to me by a close friend and I applied online. They were very professional, understanding and helpful. I found the coordinators in Surrey to be friendly, approachable and caring which made it easier for me to transition from South African schools to UK schools. I have enjoyed working with TP and would recommend everyone I know to apply with them.

TimePlan helped me by setting me up in accommodation, being incredibly supportive, giving me great opportunities, listening to my suggestions, consistently giving me positive feedback and just generally being wonderful people.

I would advise anyone who is looking for a year full of travel and adventure to teach with TimePlan. Best decision we ever made!

I was in contact with this agency for several years before moving over to the UK, and am now very happily employed by a lovely school in North West London.

TimePlan definitely has the contacts and connections needed to get teachers work in the London area, but I found that they fell very short when it came to communication between me and them, as well as with schools. I also found it difficult to get useful information out of them regarding contracts, and there were some very unfortunate admin errors. As long as a teacher knows what they are doing and makes sure the agency is working to help them, and not the other way around, they are guaranteed to find work through TimePlan.

At Easter I am coming to the end of a two year teaching experience in Scotland through TimePlan. I have been working in a rather remote school but the support from TimePlan and the local community has been fantastic. TimePlan secured me a long term position for one term in 2015 which was extended for another term (with a pay rise that I didn't even ask for!). At the end of that TimePlan found me another position for a year. TimePlan guided me through my GTCS registration and helped with accommodation. I felt that they got to know me as a person and as a teacher and matched me so well to the schools I worked in. If you are looking to teach in Scotland in a long term role I would highly recommend them. My visa is coming to an end but TimePlan have offered to find me a permanent teaching job so that I can switch visas and stay. So i'm intending to return to Canada for a few months and then return in the new academic year.

I left my perm job to do some day to day supply work. I called the Essex office to register, they were very efficient and had my file cleared within two weeks. I was interviewed by Amina, she was very polite, professional and honest. I have been working for TimePlan for almost a year now, I have read some previous reviews and it has not been positive however the staffing in TimePlan has changing. When I first joined everyone was new and I have not had a problem at all. They are all friendly, easy to talk to and have treated me well. Maybe the new consultants have made a difference? I would recommend this agency to everyone :)

Disgusting agency. Do not work with them. They just want to fill vacancies and are not there for you! they are dishonest and patronizing. The pay is appalling and if you have to relocate for the job...do not count on them for support.

The biggest mistake I ever did in my life was accept a job offer from these people. They made me move all the way to the U.K with the intention that I had a full time job and when I got there I found out that I was only supplying for maternity cover for 2 days. Imagine the shock I was in when I found out that I had moved from Canada just to get a slap in the face from these people. When I talked to multiple people and even went to them in person they told me there was nothing they could do and even suggested I look into different agencies. Luckily, I ended up working for a much better agency. I was so dissappointed with their false advertising and their lies that I warned all my friends as well as whoever is reading this not to waste your time with these people. They are liars. They waste time. They are unprofessional and are untrustworthy. Hands down this is the worst agency I have come across in the time I spent in the U.K. Don't trust the south branch in tonbridge they are mostly fake and are mostly pathological liars who only want your money.

I was given a full-time contract with TimePlan at a secondary school, so i can't complaint about the amount of work I got, as I work everyday for the duration of my contract. When I mean i worked, I mean I worked 12-14hr days, usually without a break or barely anytime to go to the washroom. When I approached David at TimePlan about my work conditions, I was told that there were part of the duties of a teacher. When i enquired about a possible wage increase to compensate for all the hours I was working, David said he would get in touch with the school and enquire. HE LIED. HE NEVER DID. When you average out the amount of hours you are working with your daily rate you're making WAY less than the national minimum wage. TimePlan sees their teachers as slaves. They really don't care about you as a human. Their only concern in that you make them money. They charge the schools, ridiculous amounts of money and pay you 1/2 of what they charge the school. You will never be placed close to a school where you live. Expect a commute time of 45mns to an hour on top of your 12hr day. AVOID AVOID AVOID THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS!!!
