Supply teacher
It was good to get a relevant post in a school that was friendly and well managed. The company who provided the post was well managed and decent when discussing possible supply posts before I agreed to working at the position found.

A good agency to work for i had an excellent job with them.
ABC Teachers are an excellent agency to work for, the pay is great, I enjoyed working for them and they found me a long term job in a school within days from when I applied. And the lady who found me the job was always there for me when I had a problem.

Stated that I wanted something closer to home as I’ve recently just moved to the area and was not familiar. Gave me a position 50 miles away! They don’t care about your needs. An hour there and back for a 4 hour shift was a joke.
Also, mentioned the fact I fell pregnant so it was hard for me to travel that far, after telling them I was ignored!! No response, no phone calls, nothing!!! Absolutely disgusting. You would have thoug they had a bit more compassion. AVOID ht

Awful Workplace
Really shocking place to work, mess you around with pay, interview system is a joke they make it insanely difficult to even get employed and then give you hardly any work. The promise you the world and then you start and it is just abysmal wouldn't recommend to anyone.

I think there is a reason they are always across indeed with jobs everywhere because people done want to work for them, please just stay away they are truly abysmal.

Took me on then had no work. In the space of 3 months I dealt with 3 different people as they kept leaving. First 2 promised me work, I wanted anything they had got. It was only after 2.5 months of no work the 3rd new person finally owned up and said sorry we dont have any work. I was fuming as I could have signed up with someone else. Ironically I got a full time job else where then they wouldn't stop calling saying they had loads of work!!

ABC Teachers are excellent.
I have found ABC Teachers a pleasure to work for. The staff are friendly and professional and you can trust them. The consultants listen to you and ensure that you are well suited to the school placements. I have always been offered lots of work through ABC Teachers and I have always been paid promptly.
They are an outstanding Teacher Agency who are committed to doing their best for you, the school environment and ultimately the children.
Pros
Lots of work and you can talk to your consultant at any time.
Cons
Don't get paid during school holidays.

Dont pay promised amount
Abc teachers seem to pay whatever they feel like regardless of what was agreed. Cowboys don't use.
when questions are asked regarding pay you will.be passed from one person to the next. The recruitment consultants here don't seem to be answerable.
Pros
none
Cons
dishonest

Needs of employees met
Having worked with ABC teachers for over 3 years I have become accustomed to short notice assignments - being ready for work before any work is assigned. During the day, it was essential to be flexible according to the schools needs concerning tasks. I have had the opportunity to work with all ages in the primary school. I had to liaise with other teachers and teaching asistants during the course of the day. The hardest part of the job was that you had to adapt to each schools work ethics within a short space of time.
The most rewarding part of the job is that you develop good teaching skills working in different settings and my confidence has improved greatly.
Pros
Flexibility in terms of amount of work and place of work.
Cons
Sometimes long commuting distances

A very happy 12 months on supply
I worked for ABC Teachers last year before getting a full time role this term.
What a great team they have. From the minute I registered I was made to feel welcome. Pay was always prompt and on time. I worked in schools locally and there was plenty of work available. A wonderful experience.

great way of getting into schools
phone call on the morning to say where you shall be working, turn up to the school and find out which subject and class you shall be covering, working in a classroom of 25-30 students,

the hardest part of the job was waiting in the morning for a phone call and getting to the school in the given time frame.


the most enjoyable part was working within the schools and gaining experience within a classroom
