“Education People has certainly worked for me. The team have a no-nonsense approach: they work hard on your behalf, keep you informed, find work that suits your skills and, importantly, they are reliable and as good as their word.”
Teacher - K.L.
“Education People are big enough to provide regular work, but small enough to cater for your individual needs. Thanks for delivering regular work with good humour and a caring personal touch, Best wishes.”
Teacher - S.S.
“I would like to thank you for your excellent service over this last school term. Because of this you are my preferred agency and will be next term. The teachers’ ability has been of a high standard and always very professional. Exam invigilators provided, managed very well with the small hiccups we had (wrong rooms/fire alarms) thus resulting in a smooth exam period.”
Bristol based School - W.S.
“I have booked supply teachers through Education People for the last 3 years; I will continue to do so based on the quality of service and reliability I have experienced during this time. I have no need to use other agencies for this purpose and will not return to previously used organisations as I have become accustomed to the superior service levels offered as standard by Education People. I recommend them without reservation.”
Somerset based School – C.M.
“The staff are always helpful, courteous, friendly, reliable and honest, all qualities I particularly appreciate. I know they will always do their best to provide me with specific requests and if unable to at that time will immediately let me know. I am grateful for this (not all agencies do) so I am able to look elsewhere quickly.”

BANES based School - H.K.
“I have recently joined Education People, Bristol last September 2018 and have been extremely impressed with the way in which Sally, Colette and the team work tirelessly to help organise any supply teaching opportunities that may come along. I thoroughly recommend Education People to those seeking employment in Education.”
Primary Teacher - J.F.
“Sally and her team at Education People have been unfailingly helpful and proactive in finding me regular bookings in a variety of lovely schools. They also secured long term placements, again in fantastic schools. Knowing that they are just a phone call away for advice or help is very reassuring. I can highly recommended Education People if you are looking for a professional and supportive Supply Agency.”
Primary Teacher - N.D.
“This company has been amazing from the start. I moved to the area so needed to do supply. They gave me work for all the days that I needed in advance. If I couldn’t there was no pressure. If I didn’t want to travel that far, again no pressure. They do not use an umbrella company. A big plus! The schools are all fantastic and a pleasure to work for.”
M.S, Primary Teacher
“Education People was a great agency to work for. Sally and her team were efficient and friendly in following out my wishes to work two days a week locally after taking early retirement. They phoned in advance to give me work for the following week which meant that I could plan my other commitments easily. I thoroughly recommend them. Thank you for all your hard work and I hope you continue to grow as a company whilst still keeping the personal touch which you do so well.”
D.S - Primary Teacher
“I have worked for Education People since October this year. Going into supply work knowing it can be a bit hit or miss, I didn’t expect to get much work, but Sally has been absolutely fantastic at organising work for me: I’ve had work every week since I have signed up. I was recommended this agency by a friend and I would 100% recommend them to another friend.”
L.M - Primary Teacher
“I have always felt valued by Sally & her team and the personal interest they show in supply teachers and their requirements is second to none. Covid has prevented me from working over the past year but I have never felt pressured to get back to work - as Sally says, ” Take your time and come back when you are ready.” Thank you for letting me continue using my teaching skills well in to retirement!”
C.B - Primary Teacher
“Have been teaching in the UK for the last 7 years. Education People was the first agency to offer me a long-term position. Since then they never lost track of me, always supporting the best way they can, helping me to find the position that I’m looking for. Lovely, high professional personal. Has been a pleasure to work with them. Thank you!”
CR - Primary Teacher
