“I was in the process of applying for teaching work, having not taught for a while. I was looking to relocate so I initially chose London by way of easier public transportation. Since the last agency I worked for was County Teachers, with James Campbell, I asked him for a reference. He strategically persuaded me to come for an interview.
The interview with him was so comfortable, that it gave me the absolute confidence I needed for the first interview he sent me to. I got the job! Which was also lengthy work, exactly what a mother needs straight after the Christmas holidays.
Whether you've been in teaching for a while or haven't taught for some time, a chat with James Campbell will most certainly revive you! Ensuring your love for teaching most certainly comes back to you.”
“"This is the second time that I've registered with county teachers and both times, I have received regular daily supply work within the agreed distance ending with long-term placements.
Registration is straight-forward with good communication at each stage.
Information about each school placement is clear and detailed.
Charlotte and Maisie send regular communication, are easily reachable and respond quickly to messages.
I haven't registered with any other agencies but suspect that they would be hard-pushed to provide a better service for teachers wanting to do supply than Maisie and Charlotte offer.
I would definitely recommend County Teachers"”
“"I have worked with County Teachers for three years. In that time I have had the opportunity to experience different environments and I would definitely say that has made me more informed in the teaching profession.
The team are friendly, efficient and work hard to find posts that are suitable to my requirements. The flexibility has allowed me to make decisions that would otherwise have not been made which has made a huge difference to me personally"”
“"Having been working with County Teachers for a year, I am greatly impressed by the service they provide. I have always had enough work to fit around my other commitments and have been given the freedom to shape my own working week. All the staff have been friendly and supportive when I’ve needed to get in touch and Maisie has been fantastic in finding me regular and suitable supply assignments. I’ve loved the breadth and variety of classroom experiences that I’ve had in the last year and look forward to continuing with County Teachers in the year ahead. An excellent service"”
“It takes time before you get to know if one agency is better than any other one. Only time will reveal the qualities or bad qualities of a supply teaching agency.
I registered with County Teachers before I got into teaching training then came to them when I stopped full time teaching back in 2014.
So far I have been very satisfied with their services and the way they handle any issue or query that requires quick answer or solution.
What I like most is their friendly and positive approach when calling them and emails are replied to with no delay at all.
I am mainly dealing with James and Charlotte who are always trying their best to fit the supply work around my private tuition schedule and so far daily basis or short term contract work well for me.
So yes, the proof of the pudding is definitely in the eating”
“I retired from full-time teaching last year after over 40 years experience. I signed up to a local agency who I constantly had to chase, they refused to help with any paperwork and never found me any work. Somewhat disillusioned, I decided to try a different agency, and could not believe the difference. County teachers are always polite and interested in you as a person, matching you to local schools where possible. I have dealt mainly with James who has always valued me as one of his "team", but all the other staff are unfailingly polite and helpful-always 'phoning to see how a job is going.
I have had regular work since joining them, and I am happy to highly recommend County Teachers to anyone wishing to undertake supply teaching.”
“I have nothing but praise for County Teachers, especially Maisie. She has been so helpful and supportive. She is always available for a chat both early on and later in a day. It’s so nice to have a point of contact to let off steam about the schools I’ve worked in. She is incredibly hardworking and professional. I look forward to continuing working with Maisie and County Teachers”
“My recent experience with County Teachers and Mitchell in particular has been excellent. I was working in a job that made me progressively more unhappy, but I was determined to stick it out regardless. Mitchell emailed me about a local teaching position which I initially ignored, as I was already working. However, he persisted and called me telling me about the opportunity. After giving it a little thought I decided to stick with my current job and refused the offer. At the end of the same day things at my workplace became unbearable and I made the decision to resign. I immediately called Mitchell to enquire whether the position he had contacted me about was still available. He informed me that it was and I expressed my interest. The following Monday, I travelled to Stevenage to meet Mitchell and register as a full agency member. Mitchell was extremely supportive of my situation and took time out of his very busy day to get me registered and ready to start work as soon as possible and by Thursday of that same week I found myself in a college I love, teaching a subject that is very close to my heart to four great groups of students. I can't thank County Teachers and Mitchell enough for the amazing support and enthusiasm they have shown me. I am absolutely delighted with the warm and professional approach and the encouraging communication I have had.”
