Teaching assistant (Current Employee) –  Wigan14 May 2018
A typical day at work
I receive a call (usually in the morning, sometimes the night before) asking me if I wish to work that day, if I say yest they trey and allocate me to local schools that require a TA or cover supervisor for the day which I will the attend. I arrive at the school, receive my timetable and either cover the lesson or assist in the classroom. I then go home an it is as simple as that.

What you learned
I learned that confidence is key in all aspects, especially in front of the students. As soon as they get a whiff that you aren't confident they believe they can mess you around.

Management
The management are lovely. Nothing more really to say.

The hardest part of the job
The hardest part of the job is going to a school where they don't seem to have things under control but at the end of the day they understand you can only do so much.

The most enjoyable part of the job
I love working with the SEN pupils in the local SEN schools. I find it really rewarding and challenging which I love.
Pros
friendly staff
Cons
temporary work

Teacher / Cover Supervisor / Tutor (Current Employee) –  Welwyn Garden City6 March 2018
Being a teacher, TA or cover supervisor you can get bookings from schools on the same day, 1 hour prior to the class, so you have to be prepared.

Is very easy to contact a Choice Teachers employee or manager.

If you work as a teacher, you should of course expect to deal with silent and loud students, so you have to be prepared. I am sure there are a lot of places when you can read advices on how to give a class.

None, If you're strong, dedicated and committed to the job role you will use your skills to overcome any problems.

Supply Teacher (Current Employee) –  Welwyn Garden City, ENG10 August 2015
Very friendly staff who are always able to answer any questions I may have about a school in which I have been posted. Most days I get a phone call in the evening asking my availability for the following day, this helps me to get a good rest as i don't have to be up first thing in the morning for work. The hardest part of being with Choice is the same as all agencies, the possibility of not getting work some days, saying this i have been lucky and have only had 3 days off in the past year while working as a supply staff.
