About Vision Teaching

When we launched in 2007, our founders recognised an opportunity to improve the service provided to supply teachers and schools in London by developing long-term partnerships.

Over the past ten years, Vision Teaching has delivered outstanding support to candidates, expanded and built positive relationships with hundreds of schools, developed efficient processes and maintained industry-leading vetting standards. We now offer our candidates a full range of opportunities; day–to–day supply, guaranteed contracts, long-term bookings and permanent opportunities.

We are especially proud of our reputation for supporting international teachers, particularly those from Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and Canada. Members of our London based international team visit these countries every year to provide expert advice to candidates, as we value the personal relationships this allows them to build and maintain on arrival.

In recent years Vision Teaching has developed partnerships to invest in properties throughout London. This means that our international teachers can not only lock in a guaranteed job before they arrive in the UK, they can also secure a great place to live with a landlord who genuinely cares about them.

If you want to work with a recruitment agency that is candidate-driven and values efficient, personal service then we would love to hear from you.

My initial planning of my journey to London began back at home, in Australia in August 2018. This was an important goal of mine, so I made sure I did my research and called a few different agencies (as I read multiple horror stories online about poor experiences). The first person I spoke to was Abbi, who came across as professional, informative and willing to educate me about the ins and outs of the process (also a genuinely lovely person). I then set a date for my arrival and Abbi told me everything I needed to do, making the process super easy and very clear for me. Upon arrival to London, I was kindly picked up by Marianne, who dropped us to our door. We had a bit of miscommunication about a key being left out to get into the place and Marianne very kindly went out of her way to sort this issue out and wait with us while we got in. The schools and classrooms I have worked in to date have been filled with such lovely children and teachers. It has been a pleasure working with Vision so far, very happy to recommend them to any teacher looking for work. My move to London could not possibly have run any smoother. Vision truly went the extra mile for me. Special shout out to Abbi and Marianne! Looking forward to the rest of my journey here.

We have worked with Vision since they started and have found them to be an extremely professional agency who work alongside us to find the right candidate to suit our requirements. They get to know the schools they work with and go the extra mile especially when recruiting for long term positions and recruiting suitably experienced staff for the out Provision for Autism as well as our mainstream school. Support has always been immediately available from their staff to ensure their teachers and teaching assistants settle in well to our school. I would recommend them to any school looking for an agency who can provide good teachers and teaching assistants and want good client service.

Surely recommend this agency, very helpful to get me through the paperwork and deliver what it promised. Carley D. was very easy to liaise with as both exceptionally professional and friendly, adding a touch of 'personal' to the signing up process. I have been working with them only for the past month (only one day per week as I requested) and have been pleased with the school they chose to send me to. I am not sure their rate of pay for experienced teachers is the best one but I never asked for more, so I believe that's my fault and that's why I will actually have to ask for more. Overall, so far so good!

I have submitted this review elsewhere as well. I secured a long-term position though VT. I initially found the agency staff to be polite and knowledgeable, and was happy with the school. However, towards the end of my contract, I found them to be not the most transparent of agencies. Although I am an experienced teacher, I was earning less than I should have been and was told by various people at the agency that it would be unlikely I could earn more. I have since been in contact with other agencies and found out this not to be the case and have had no trouble in securing a role paid to scale - an increase of £500 more each month after tax - a huge difference. If you speak to someone in the office, be sure to ask them to note details of your conversation onto your file. I spoke with different people at different times to see if other jobs were available that were more suited to my experience and apparently no record was made of these conversations. Levels of politeness vary amongst the staff working there and, at times, other members of staff were dismissive and abrupt towards me when I enquired about earning a higher rate of pay. Also, after 12 weeks, it is the agency's responsibility to update your contract with them. They did not do this for me despite me working in the same role for a year. Regardless of whether updating your contract changes anything about your role, it is something they must do and they didn't. By all means give VT a go, but if you are an experienced teacher, I would advise you to look elsewhere before settling with them. In my experience, other agencies have more roles better suited to teachers on higher pay scales. This is something another reviewer has mentioned. If you are new to supply teaching, ensure you are put on an AWR contract if you have been in the same school for longer than 12 weeks. Speaking with other agencies, I have found them to be more forthcoming about contract details right from the start, and as I said earlier, more transparent about their role and responsibilities and what you, as a supply teacher, should expect from them.

Great agency! Definitely recommended! I can’t stress enough how helpful they were in assisting with my relocation here. That alone provides immense value. My roomates went with another agency who did not help at all with getting them on their feet when they first came to the UK. It was rough for them. This was not the case for me. Once here, they were able to consistently find me supply work at pretty solid schools. They are also open and receptive to your preferences. Shout out to everyone at Vision especially Marc!

Vision have been very helpful and understanding in my transition into London life/teaching. Very friendly people and they are sincere in their assistance. If you would rather be left alone and given minimal support they will respect that also. It's up to you how much help they will provide. There are a lot of teachers amongst their ranks so they understand your perspective.

Vision kept in contact with me for about a year as a planned my move to London. I never felt pressured, but always felt valued as an individual (which is what I wanted in an agency). I arrived with the intention of doing supply work, however, the secondary coordinator found me a term-long position in a super supportive staff room. I was given a week trial where I could leave if I didn't want to continue the term, but have really enjoyed having a fantastic team. Considering I graduated in November, I have been given a very good daily rate. Within my first week of teaching, the secondary coordinator organised an interview at another school for me, for the following academic year. The secondary coordinator had tailored to my subject preference, with a school that aligned with my values. Overall, Vision have made my move to the UK stress-free and more enjoyable.

What can I say? The staff at Vision have always looked after me and sent me to schools that I enjoyed coming back to, so much so I have been offered a job at one for next year. Guaranteed if you sign on with Vision they will find you the perfect school! I cannot thank Vision enough for everything they have done and continually do for me. They are so personable and whenever you're in need of anything, they are always happy to help. Had gone through a bit of a rough patch and Vision were extremely understanding and accommodating to my needs. I will always speak highly of them and recommend them to anyone thinking of coming over to supply teach in London. A big thanks and shout out to Abbi, Daniel and Craig! You guys are the best!!!

My time with Vision Teaching has been a valuable experience. From the moment you begin talking to Vision from home over the phone, they are efficient, encouraging and willing to help wherever you need help. They provided me with accommodation, airport transfers and a lot of support in not only teaching in London, but living and thriving in London as soon as I arrived. In particular, I was in contact with Zahra and Sital, both were extremely helpful, friendly, enthusiastic and made you feel as if you were a part of a great support network. Over my time with Vision Teaching, I worked as a Supply Teacher and as a full-time classroom teacher. I found most of the schools to be of a high quality and I was also pleased to find that the consultants I worked with seemed to really get to know their schools and whether they were the right fit for me. My only complaint over my time with Vision was that I sometimes felt pushed into classes and schools I wasn't quite comfortable with, as well as being sent to schools a long distance away. And around the school holiday periods, I was left with little or no pay because of long non-guaranteed periods. And the rate of pay was a bit lower than I think it should have been. The social events, organised by Sital and Zahra, were a lot of fun and introduced me to many people in the same position as I was in. I would like to thank Vision for making my time living in London a wonderful experience.

After researching different agencies, I could not recommend Vision Teaching enough. The team, especially Sital, has provided constant support and made the daunting thought of moving to another country seem easy and pleasant. From the first day, Sital was extremely nice and easily approachable. Prior to moving, she constantly provided me with various phone calls that were greatly helpful in making the move to the UK as smooth as possible. Overall, Sital and the vision team were extremely nice, approachable and most importantly, supportive. I could not recommend them enough!

Having only been here a few weeks I could not recommend one of the other agencies over vision. The international team, in particular Sital, were great from the very first phone call. She was enthusiastic and determined to make my transition from Australia to London as easy as possible. The supply work is great, I have not had a day without work. I recommend them to others back home who are thinking of giving this a go. Thank you to everyone at vision.

Since first signing up with Vision in 2016, they have been nothing but a pleasure. When deciding to make the big move from Australia to London, they helped me do everything with ease. I have been working with Vision since February this year, doing supply teaching, and have never gone a day without work. I have found that Vision teaching are always reasonable and also fair with pay. I would 100% recommend this agency to anyone looking for a new teaching agency.

Vision teaching has made my move to London an easy and smooth transition. All the staff at vision were welcoming and friendly. Everything was very well organised, i was met at the airport by Sital who is lovely, she had organised all the documentation i needed to have. She handed me a welcome pack which included a sim card and oyster card, which was very helpful. Sital also arranged a bank appointment for me and made sure i had the letter to open my bank account. Vision also offered to help me find accomodation if I needed, which put my mind at ease and made me feel more comfortable. Working for Vision has been an enjoyable experience, the team in the office are always very friendly and professional and the staff at the schools I am sent to are always very helpful. I am so happy i chose to come to London with Vision and i would highly recommend them to anyone who is thinking of coming over.

Moving to a new country to teach and to a whole new environment is almost always challenging. Vision Teaching, in particular, Sital, was extremely helpful and supported me with all the available options and was with me at every step of the way - ensuring I was always getting the best experience. I now work with Tommy, who is down to earth and completely fantastic. I enjoy the support from Vision Teaching and they are always happy to provide advice and support in my decisions. I can't think of a better agency than Vision Teaching, based on Sital and Tommy.
