TimePlan have been very helpful with the paperwork side of relocating however alot of the service advertised in the 'touch down' package do not apply to the office I am with, which is disapointing. The schools are all very good and recognise TimePlan supply teachers. At this time I feel happy with their work however I have only been in the UK a short time.

I've been working for the South office and I found the staff there really helpful and enthusiastic. They prepped me really well for the interviews that I had and thanks to them I am now enjoying work at a fantastic school!! They also offered al lot of supported and showed a lot of patience when answering all the questions I had before coming over to the UK. They helped me make the transition really smooth. I have had a kt if work through this office and I appreciate all their efforts and help!

The quality of service from this agency is absolutely appalling and I have no ides how this chop-shop is still in business. The ethical conduct of this company is nothing short of socking, and the deception the employ to real in teacher candidates is grotesque. Timeplan here's a little piece of advice: When you are trying to recruit honest quality teachers to travel overseas and leave their family and friends, it only seems fair that you are honest with them. This means being realistic and setting honest expectations as to when their police check will arrive and they will be out working. This doesnt mean throwing out a random timeline like "6 weeks", just because it sounds good. Newsflash [removed]....ppl are paying rent and trying to make ends meet in a very expensive city. Having them sit their unemployed is NOT ETHICAL!!! AND SECONDLY: Having worked in the recruitment industry here is another little tid-bit for the degenerates working there: It is your job to prep your candidates and let them know about the workplace. Sending them in with no prior information in regards to school conduct or policies is just lazy and ABSURD!! TIMEPLAN YOU SUCK!!! I'm glad you're making money cause you get an "F" in the area of ETHICS!

The staff at TimePlan are fantastic I really couldn't fault them. They are really supportive and encouraging. No matter what and without exception they are always cheerful and friendly. It really amazes me and it is the reason why I would always recommend them. They are also really well organised and have a great diary system for bookings. I have worked with other agencies and they are without a doubt the best I have found.

TimePlan is the worst agency that I have worked for. They do a great job promoting their company oversees and getting you to come to London. But once you are here, they do nothing to help you get work. I was told blatant lies about being guaranteed work and that there would be lots of supply work available. However, once I arrived, they did nothing to help me find work. And their rate of pay is the worst out of all the companies I have worked for. I would not recommend this agency to anyone.

South office are wonderful. I had a telephone interview in South Afirca and one week later I had a long term job in the UK secured! Brilliant! The Office thought of everything from arranging and paying for a taxi from the airport to accommodation on arrival. They had literally thought of everying (except a packing list!) I'm having a brilliant time, they are amazing supports and regularly pop in to visit me at school to check I am doing ok. Couldn't have asked for anything else!

I found Timeplan OK as an agency, like most agencies they have their faults and weaknesses. They by far have the best timesheet system being all on line so I never forget to do my timesheet. One thing they do fall short on is placing secondary teachers in London, and pay! One thing I do have to say is the staff who I talked to were always friendly, and getting to know them better at the socials did help my chance in getting a job.

They may have been the first agency around but they are far from the best. Their customer service is terrible and I have also heard 'you are next on the list' far too many times. Not great.

At least these people were honest by saying that they had more teachers on their books they could find work for, advising me not to bother.

I work for the TimePlan Southampton office. They have fantastic staff that take the time to listen to your needs and place you carefully in schools that match your preferences. They are all really knowledgeable and are qualified teachers themselves, which is great as they know the education system and you can talk to them about your day and seek advice if necessary. The registration process was easy and they were very thorough with their checks as well as informative. The volume of work has been great and they are in contact with many schools in the area, hence I have been kept very busy. Their rate of pay is excellent too, unlike some other agencies that will advertise one rate and then will give you a considerably lower rate when you register with them! As they are a non-commission based agency, I never feel pressured into taking a booking if I don't want it, nor will they 'black list' me if I turn down work or do not instantly return their call. I also like the way that I can drop by at any time and they will always make me feel welcome - they'll put the kettle on and will always take the time to sit with me for a chat, let me photocopy resources or allow me to use their internet facilities for work. I have been so impressed that I have referred a couple of my teaching friends to them and I am pleased to say that they have also had the same excellent experience. I have even earned extra money this way through their Refer-A-Friend scheme! They also have great socials where you get the opportunity to meet fellow TimePlan teachers and to let your hair down with like-minded professionals! I will certainly keep recommending this agency to all my friends and colleagues - keep up the great work TimePlan!

When I arrived in the UK two years ago, I registered with several agencies for supply teaching work. I was immediately impressed by the difference with TimePlan. The coordinators seemed to genuinely want to know me and they took the time to find out about me and what I was after. They were so helpful with getting me settled and regularly checked in on me to see how I was getting on. The schools I've worked in for TimePlan have been great and everyone has been incredibly supportive and knowledgeable. My TimePlan coordinator has worked in London as a teacher, so I know she understands what I'm going through. Initially I was nervous about teaching in London, but TimePlan have made the experience an amazing one!

I have to say that I have been nothing but impressed with Timeplan since the first day I started working for them. Being a British trained teacher I was a little worried about working through an agency but I have been with timeplan for almost 2 years in which I started off on supply and am currently teaching in a long term post. I have dealt mainly with the Surrey office but have had good dealings with the London office too. Timeplans schools were always great, unlike some of the 'tough' schools I taught at through another agency! My school now is exactly what I was looking for. The girls in the office seem to genuinely care about me and I still get calls now from them just checking how I'm getting on. Overall, they are a top agency that I would recommend to anyone.

Since I was in Canada and pondered about working as a teacher in London, Timeplan has been there every step of the way supporting my desired venture into unchartered territory . Working for Timeplan in London not only provided me with a consistent income (because I regularly had work lined up for me) but it also gave me a chance to travel and explore some of the more beautiful parts of Europe. I am also greatly thankful that Timeplan eventually also helped me in finding a more permanent teaching job in London with a wonderful school. Talk about matchmaking! Thank you Timeplan! If you are an overseas teacher thinking about taking the leap, and are ready to have the journey of a lifetime, I highly recommend taking your first step forward with Timeplan!

Having had some 'questionable' experiences with other agencies, I approached TimePlan with a certain amount of trepidation. However, I needn't have worried-I worked mainly through the Surrey branch office and found everybody friendly and helpful. TimePlan employs teachers who have actually taught in the UK, so it was great that they could give me an honest picture of the Supply 'scene' as well as advice on all sorts of things, such as good areas to live, current Education practices, information on schools' expectations and also booking confirmations emailed directly to me, with detailed travel directions! Paperwork was clearly sorted out and any issues were immediately resolved. Compared to my other experiences with some of the bigger agencies, I felt TimePlan actually understood what I was looking for and knew who I was! They helped me gain the experiences which have lead to my current long-term placement in the Wimbledon area. I would recommend TimePlan to any teacher who is looking for a supportive, honest and, frankly, nurturing agency to help them when supply teaching.

I had the best experience teaching with Timeplan! Great schools, friendly staff, fun socials (with a free drink!)and free training & advice. Also, I got extra money with the refer a friend scheme! Offices are open until 7pm so there is always someone to speak to you when you phone. Definitely rate Timeplan as one of the best!

I'm a newly qualified teacher from Canada who's been in England for just under two years. Time Plan has been nothing but good to me since the first email I sent from Canada, in which I requested more info about coming to the UK. They responded to my email quite quickly and flooded me with information about coming to work in the UK. After living in Birmingham for just under two years I can look back and honestly say that everything I was told by the Time Plan representatives regarding teaching in the UK was all true. I have had a blast! Specifically regarding the Birmingham office of Time Plan, which is all I can really speak about since I've only worked in Birmingham, the staff have been super supportive, welcoming, down to earth and as helpful as someone arriving from overseas would like an agency to be! Adrian who runs the Birmingham office has always answered my questions and given me valuable advice regarding teaching in England. Any issues or concerns I may have had with different schools, Adrian has dealt with in a most professional and supportive manner. My time in England has been amazing and I can't give Time Plan enough praise for making my teaching transition from Canada to England as smooth as possible! I've had a blast! Thanks Adrian!

Timeplan is a great agency to work for. I have been placed in great schools, and have been very well supported and looked after! There is regular communication and updating, the socials are well organized and inclusive and the team work hard to make good relationships with schools. This in turn helps teacher placements to be a smooth and happy experience.

I found Timeplan to be of a very high standard compared to other agencies I was registered with. From the initial registration in NZ they maintain regular contact via phone and email making sure I was aware of any jobs coming up and that I was comfortable and prepared for my big move overseas. Once arrived in the UK I went straight into the Surrey / South West London office where the staff there were so welcoming, professional yet approachable. They helped me with the setting up of accommodation, bank accounts, UK police checks and they had made me aware of the documents I needed to bring so my file could be complete and I could get out to work asap! The schools they sent me to were lovely, they provided me with regular training and support with school visits and regular phone calls. Timeplan is a fantastic agency staffed with teachers themselves who have been through the same situation as myself which I feel made such a difference to the service they provided me. I highly recommend Timeplan.
