What Our Aspiring Teachers Say

“After struggling to find work for a while, I messaged George on LinkedIN, where he responded immediately and shortly after we had an in-depth conversation. 1 week later, I was placed in a Secondary School as a Teaching Assistant, providing 1:1 support both academically & mentoring pupils with additional needs – It’s been a great experience so far!”

Jake, Business Graduate, Secondary Teaching Assistant

“Spoke with George for a couple of minutes, where he was discussing multiple opportunities with me – he didn’t pressure me at all, and he made sure I was prepared for both interviews – I started last week, and the School are already making me complete a Schools Direct Application Form, eeekkkk!”

Chloe, Law Graduate, Primary Teaching Assistant

“I wasn’t sure what direction I wanted to go down (Primary or Secondary), however this wasn’t an issue for Ryan, as he was able to place me in an All-Through School, where I Tutor KS2 pupils in the morning & then KS4 & 5 GCSE / A Level students in the afternoon”
