Abbey Primary School
The staff are amazing and the best agency staff we have ever had! Rueben worked tirelessly to find us the right members of staff we required for our Early Years department at such short notice. Thank you!
St Matthew Academy
We have been very impressed with the high quality of staff we have used from the TLTP over the years we have been working together. Their own administrative staff have an excellent grasp of our school and our circumstances and they work hard extremely hard to ensure that as far as possible they match their teachers ability and attributes with the particular needs of our school.
Their supply staff are always very competent and prepared to step into any situation at a moment’s notice. They are usually always personable and able to communicate well with both our own staff and students alike, building good relationships in the process. They are also reliable and responsible and come to us as having been carefully vetted and covered by up to date DBS and supporting references and testimonials.
Towards the end of the summer term this year, we used TLTP extensively to staff a number of vacant full time permanent posts we needed to fill before the start of the summer break. Once again, the team at TLTP went out of their way to provide us with a number of very good applicants for each vacant post for us to interview. Once we had outlined the role we had vacant and the type of person we were looking for, the team at TLTP set to work in order the find the best possible candidates for the positions we had available and this included both teaching and non-teaching staff
One particular role that we were specifically looking to fill was for two teachers and one HLTA to work with some of our more vulnerable children within our Transition classes. Staff in this specialist area need to have a variety of skills including a range of Special Needs knowledge and understanding. TLTP worked tirelessly to find us a large number of very suitable candidates all of whom had the necessary experience and important characteristics we were looking for and following a rigorous interview process, we were able to make our appointments accordingly.
The work we have done together with The London Teaching Pool has made a huge impact on our school. We know that they will go the extra mile to ensure that not only will we have quality supply staff to cover for both planned and unexpected staff absence, they will also go out of their way to work closely with us to ensure we have a strong field of candidates to interview for our full term permanent teaching and non-teaching staff vacancies. At a time when the whole profession is currently experiencing a major staffing crisis, to have a team like TLTP behind you in order to help you with your staffing needs is extremely comforting.
I cannot praise the team at The London Teaching Pool highly enough and look forward to building on the strong relationship we have already developed during the coming academic year.
Scott after 9 weeks is the top of my league table and my 'go to person!
Over the last 20 years I have dealt with many people from supply agencies. I have only worked with Scott since Christmas after he placed a Teacher at St Matthew Academy. Scott is head and shoulders above anybody that I have ever worked with from any supply agency.
In the last 9 weeks he has found us 6 high quality staff.
Our children at St Matthew Academy deserve the best and in what is a very difficult time for recruiting staff I feel very lucky to be working with Scott and TLTP.
The fact that he has replied to my emails and texts from 7am to 11pm says a great deal in itself and a lot about him.
Scott has also got a great sense of humour which is another reason that I like working with him.
He is now my 'go to person' and now I will phone him first and will continue to do so unless he sends me some 'numpty'. I am confident that he won't!
Today Scott gave up his time to come and visit SMA to see the school that he is recruiting for. It was great to meet him and it was also lovely to meet Deborah too ...on her day off!
Darryl, you must be running a good outfit ...so well done to you and TLTP!”
Lea Valley High School
I have been working with TLTP for over two years and have used them for both daily and long term supply. I have found the relationship with the agency very positive and professional.
The speed of response is worthy of particular note as we are often presented with a choice of candidates within hours of our initial request. London Teaching Pool has made a point of understanding the school and the characteristics a teacher would need to be successful with us.
We have been able to establish an effective system from introduction to interview and finally to placement. Even when they know that they cannot provide a suitable candidate for long term placement, the agency can be relied upon to place a teacher to meet our immediate needs.
Caterham High School
May I take this opportunity to thank you and your colleagues for all the hard work you do on our behalf. Our head teacher appreciates your efforts of always striving to find the right calibre of teaching staff for us and our school.
You and your colleagues are a pleasure to work with and must be congratulated on always being so professional and friendly at the same time.
I personally believe that I would find it hard to have a better working relationship with another agency.
The Grays School Media Arts College
The Grays School Media Arts College has used the services of London Teaching Pool for four years.
Throughout this time we have had a dedicated consultant who has provided a range of teaching staff from daily supply to permanent posts.
The school has found the service provided to be professional, effective and efficient. Whenever an issue has arisen, the matter has always been dealt with effectively and brought to an amicable conclusion.
Over the years an honest and open relationship between the school and the agency has developed and the school has confidence that candidates provided through the London Teaching Pool are of a suitable calibre.
The school intends to continue using the services of London Teaching Pool.
