"Education People has assisted me in many ways I have been able to see schools in different places in England so I have an understanding of British schools. I also had the chance to develop new skills while I am teaching a variety of lessons. Working with Education people I am building my confident in myself up."

"In a conversation with another supply teacher about work, I was recommended to a reasonably new agency called ‘Education People.’
I was interested in her claim that she had been provided with plenty of work whilst she was working for them; she was also enthused by how they were agreeable people to work with.
A meeting was arranged and the interview was thorough and amicable with time to talk and get to know each other.
I have had plenty of calls to attend schools all over Bristol and neighbouring counties.
I am pleased that the agency is pro-active in finding work and I appreciate their efforts in finding and providing work in the time I have worked with them.
I have recommended ‘Education People’ to other teachers and fully endorse them as an excellent agency to work with."

"Thanks for the contract, it has been good to do a longer term contract (although what with the distance and the difficult class it has not been easy, but I have enjoyed it, but am ready to bring on the holidays!)"

"Whilst I have a choice of which agency I use, from the outset I have been really impressed by the professionalism, hard work and commitment demonstrated by Education People in their role as a supply agency. Both Lesley Russell and Nicole Giermann have worked tirelessly to find me work on a regular basis, 5 days a week.
In the 2 or so years that Education People has been trading, I have benefitted from their comprehensive range of contacts in teaching establishments, and I have been delighted to work with them on a daily or weekly basis not only in Bristol, but also in schools as far afield as Swindon and Chard and Taunton.

One of the key attributes to their professionalism is their ability to find me placements that are appropriate to my skills or preferences as a supply teacher, so whilst I enjoy helping out with ‘general cover’ I am also often asked to specifically teach Design and Technology, or placed in Special Schools, PRUs or a Young Offenders Institute. With regard to my daily contact with Education People, both Lesley and Nicole are invariably good natured and very efficient, offering support and advice with a certainty that can be counted on."
