WCT were extremely efficient in organising my registration. I joined with the Kew/Brentford branch and found the team were immediately friendly, open, transparent and understanding. I have very much enjoyed being in the schools I have worked in through WCT. I would highly recommend WCT for a personable honest service with competitive day rates.

World Class Teachers are the third agency I've signed up with since arriving in London and came high recommended by two friends returning home to Sydney. Arriving in London can be daunting and some of the classroom horror stories are terrifying. Since starting work with World Class my working life has changed. I feel that they listened to my needs, have been fantastically supportive, have given me guidance when I needed it and bought me a beer when I needed a laugh. Unlike other agencies I never feel like one of a number and unlike other agencies they don't make up bookings, they are now the only agency I work with and can't recommend them enough.

World Class is a sensational agency! They listen and take note of preferences. They are supportive in the extreme - checking to see how one's day has gone if one is placed at a new school. They are encouraging when it comes to progression. The social aspect of the agency is pretty phenomenal too - meeting fellow supply teachers for drinks on a termly basis really builds on the sense of community and decreases the possible isolation of the general supply teacher. They also send tips on how to succeed on the classroom. Amy & Natalie are approachable, concerned and amenable. They show a genuine interest in their clients. I couldn't recommend highly enough and am very grateful for my time with World Class.

8.1 out of 10 Actor/Teacher · Reviewed on
I have been with WCT for around 4 years and they have been very good to me. Very friendly on the phone and I feel like they totally understand my situation as a freelance actor. The only slight issue is perhaps the rate of take-home pay. When I was working as a long term 1:1 I had a lot more responsibility e.g. a lot of tailor-made lesson planning, meetings with parents, special training. It would have been good to see this reflected/rewarded somehow compared to the random days I do at random schools. This aside, I really do value working for them and would whole-heartedly recommend them to anyone else wanting teaching work.

I've been with WCT for many years, at one stage they were one of 3 agencies I was working through. Now they are the only one, as they have proven honest, good-natured and flexible with my inconsistent schedule! They also won't send you to any 'disaster' schools. This is London, so one cannot always go to lovely schools - kids are kids and there will be trying moments (even in great schools). So my rating for that is comparatively speaking in London - NOT compared to schools in other countries. However, the average quality of the schools is much better than I experienced with other agencies over the years. Some schools I go to semi-regularly are simply wonderful, I suspect WCT give all their semi-regular and regular teachers a turn at those! Only fair afterall. ;-) Bound to be the occasional teacher who just doesn't fit, but personally I've found all the staff past and present lovely. Highly recommended. I never give 10/10 as there must always be room for improvement! Rate of pay - well, I think the whole industry needs a payrise, permanent & temporary teachers deserve more!

A wonderful agency. I've been with them since 2008 and they have always found me work, supported my decisions to persue other avenues of work and always been lovely to work for.

Absolutely love World Class teachers. All the staff are lovely, the schools are great and they always look after us teachers. I enjoy all the sports days, quarterly drinks and had a fantastic time at the Xmas party last year. If you want to work in a decent school and be well cared for then WCT is your best bet!

I was promised work with this agency, in fact the said they would 'bite my arm off' to have me on their books. However, I found they had a certain 'tone' with me every time I spoke with them and I couldn't figure out why that was. Their mouths said one thing, but their eyes and vocal intonations said another... They got me scant work, then claimed the schools were not 'pleased', even though I settled the students and got them working quietly. Bad move? Perhaps I should have just let them talk, chew and use headphones, and simply smiled as I picked up my (inadequate) fee at the end of the week. They claimed one school said that 'my face didn't fit their school profile'; a slanderous and insulting comment that I shall be investigating. It was a BIG mistake signing with this agency. I should have read these ratings first. They have been unhelpful, insulting and downright useless all round. They offer no advice, but just take your money and give not very much back. If your face 'fits' their profile (which I shall take a stab at guessing as being pale, perhaps blonde, and with an 'air' of breeding) then go ahead and take your chance with this agency. I wholeheartedly would NOT recommend that you do. For 'honesty' I would not give them a star.

would def recommend WCT for any supply teachers seeking short term opportunities; was my first assignment in the uk so the consultant,amy, was excellent in telling me exactly what i needed to do etc to get registered. on the work itself clear directions given and when i was unavilable Amy and Natalie were excellent and professional in keeping in contact.

I'm really upset about how I was treated by World Class Teachers, especially by one of their new consultants, [Name]. Along with not getting any work since signing up with this agency 6 months ago, I was also treated very badly by their Consultants. They were rude and disrecpectful whenever I spoke on the phone and were not understanding of the fact that I had siged up for various agencies as the were not supplying me with any work. Avoid using this agency.

Am fairly positive about them as they seemed very honest and were very nice to me. However, as Trust had me working since the start of September I have not needed to work for them. Would definately use them as a second agency though if you want a good back up.

Joined in January 2011. Had to pay for yet another CRB as agency claimed that there schools would not accept ones 'transported' from other agencies. They have kept inn contact, asking when I am available, but have not found me any work.
