Aspire People’s Promise

Aspire People’s success stems from a genuine belief in quality at a price that schools can afford.

Before we can provide this schools need peace of mind, a belief that we will do what we promise and if we don’t you will get your money back. We want you to trust in Aspire People, which is why we promise:

  •  In the inevitable event that a candidate arrives at your school for the first time and you deem them unsuitable they will be removed as soon as you inform us.  Of course, there will be no charge for this candidate as they will not have done a days work.
  •  If at any point a candidate is deemed as unsuitable after they have completed a days work, the cover co-ordinator will notify their education consultant. Aspire People will investigate the situation and if the candidate did not adhere to their code of conduct the school will be reimbursed for 1 day’s supply or ½ a day for am or pm bookings.

 

 If a candidate does not adhere to both the school or our own safeguarding children policies the following will happen:

1.  The candidate will be invited in to the office to meet with the Head of HR, Daniel Dawkins and a Divisional Manager.

2.  Aspire People will conclude whether the candidate needs training, support and close monitoring or no longer suitable to work for Aspire People.

3.  If necessary, serious matters will be referred to the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA)

4.  The school will be notified of our conclusions in writing,  and confirmation of a  reimbursement for 1 day’s supply (or 1/2 a day if the assignment was just for the morning or afternoon)

Aspire People will offer a replacement solution, where possible a specialist, for any assignments that do not work out. Aspire People care a great deal about the development of all our staff and rely on honest and open communications. In some cases a candidate just needs extra training and support, which is followed up by our Assessor, ex-deputy head teacher Kim White, to ensure their development is transferred in to working practice. With Aspire People it’s not about making money but providing quality education, personable service and developing people.

Safe in the knowledge that you can trust us

TESTIMONIALS


“If only all agencies valued candidates the way Aspire People do”

Even though I came from an industry background my consultant genuinely valued the experience I could bring to a school.  She really went that extra mile to find me work by organising training on school IT systems. On top of that she secured me voluntary work to support my Diploma in School Business Management Studies.

Holyhead have used Aspire People’s services since 2011, I have no hesitation in recommending them”

Holyhead had previously not used agencies, as a last resort I approached Aspire People when looking for a DT Technician.  Kelly ensured the candidate met all of our needs (of which there were many) and had undergone the safeguarding checks. We have been so impressed by the quality and efficiency of service provided by Aspire People that we now contact them in the first instance regarding any vacancy.  If the candidate proves to be suitable then we employ them ourselves. If you are looking for an honest, efficient, quality provider of education staff, look no further than Aspire People.


Marie Shiels, Business Manager, Holyhead Secondary School

Aspire understands our needs and so we invariably employ their candidate

Aspire People have always been able to respond to requests with quality staff.  Although we use a range of agencies when trying to fill long term we invariably employ the candidate recommended by Aspire People. This is because we have built up a relationship whereby our requirements are known and understood by them. As an Outstanding school at the forefront of educational provision it is essential that every lesson is delivered to the highest standards. The relationship we have with Aspire People is that we can candidly make our requirements known and they are able to choose a candidate that they are confident will meet our needs.


Mr. Wilson, Deputy Head Teacher, Bishop Challoner RC School

I was very wary and nervous at the start, but my first day of work was great!

I worked with Aspire a few months, after graduating as a teacher.  I found it difficult securing a full time position and supply was recommended to me.  Like everyone who goes in for supply I was very wary and nervous at the start, but my first day of work was great!

“A friendly and reassuring communication motivates me to do my best”

Adam Cox has been my consultant at since September 2013. His friendly and reassuring communication keeps me inspired and motivated to do my best at my assignments.  I get regular assignments almost every week and I cannot recommend him enough for his efficiency and skill as a consultant. His professional and courteous interaction and commitment towards me and other cover supervisors in Nottingham is evident. I find him extremely professional, efficient and consistent in his role and it’s a privilege to work for Aspire People.


Mrs. Mayer, Nottingham Cover Supervisor

“A faster, more friendly agency”

I registered with Aspire People on 27th September and within 7 working days my vetting checks had been completed and I was placed in to a school.
The application process was informative yet friendly and relaxed. Other agencies I registered with were not as friendly and made me feel nervous and unwelcome. I get on really well with my consultant, Kelly. Overall Aspire People is friendly, helpful and professional.

Trusted because of an honest and open approach

Wheelers Lane Technology College have used the services of Aspire People for the last five years.  The quality of staff supplied by Aspire are excellent and they adapt well to our school environment.
One of Aspires’ many qualities is the excellent relationship developed between their consultant and the school.  Aspire are agency that are trusted because of their honest and open approach to their customers. Aspire will continue to be the agency that this college will contact in the first instance in respect of daily cover needs.


Mrs Brettell, Cover Coordinator, Wheelers Lane Technology College

“Find an agency that listens to what your school needs, like Aspire People”

Find a recruitment agency that will take the time to meet with you and actually listen to what your school needs.  Show them around and let them get a feel for the kinds of pupils within the school. This way your consultant will have a great chance of matching the right candidates to your school. You can build trust up with the agency and in the end save so much time and money.  Some years ago, Shenley Academy’s predecessor school had a poor reputation among supply staff. When ever Aspire People send a candidate to us, they love their day, if there is ever any negative feedback I always act upon it.  Now they all say they would be happy to come back to Shenley Academy and nothing makes me prouder.


Mrs. Bain, Information Services Manager, Shenley Academy

“The documentation on supply staff is the best I have received”

I was impressed with the quality of presentation that my consultant made to me in July, it was following this that I chose to book staff from Aspire People in September.  The documentation provided to me about supply staff is the best I have received, providing all the information required clearly.  The quality of staff sent to me has been very high and the one very slight problem I had (late arrival of a supply teacher) was dealt with by him straight away. One of the many qualities that I like about Aspire People is their honesty.


Mrs. Beverley, The Grove School

Aspire People have found me ongoing work and a longer term placement

I have been working for Aspire since November 2012 when I was recruited by Mark. At that time Mark indicated that he was confident he could find me work and this has proved to be the case.
He has found me ongoing weekly work and also a longer term placement. Mark has communicated with me on a regular basis and has provided feedback from assignments. Based on my experience, I have recommended Aspire to colleagues.


Jo, Primary Teacher, Birmingham

High Quality of Staff

Quality of staff is so high we recently took 2 Aspire cover supervisors on permanently - Aspire’s service is fast, efficient and professional, they have never let me down. I can text them at 7 for cover and when I get in to work there is an email notifying me of who is coming.


Mrs. Tye, George Spencer School

“If you’re looking for an honest, efficient & quality provider of staff look no further than Aspire”

“Holyhead had previously not used agencies. As a last resort I approached Aspire People about a DT technician. It was the best decision I could have made. We have been so impressed by their quality and efficiency we now contact Aspire People first regarding vacancies.  If the candidate is suitable we keep them on a 10 week temporary basis then employ them ourselves with no extra cost! If you are looking for an honest, efficient and quality provider of staff then look no further than Aspire People.”


Marie Shiels, Business Manager, Holyhead Business & Enterprise Academy

“Aspire People offer a range of solutions fit for the day ahead at St. Edmunds RC School”

“Aspire People’s supply teachers are reliable and always say they enjoy coming to work at our school.  They have a range of solutions from HLTAs through to qualified teachers so I can pick what is most appropriate and cost effective option for the day I have ahead.”


Mrs. DiFranco, Finance & Cover Officer, St. Edmunds RC School

“I really enjoyed the training, a very interesting and engaging module”

The Behaviour Managment Course was a very interesting and engaging module. I liked the honesty given from the trainer and it was great to be given example planning sheets. Thank you Aspire People”

I rejoined Aspire as a supply teacher after my PGCE, I am still working with them now

After graduating from university with sports science I started working for Aspire as a girls PE supply teacher I found them very helpful and they always managed to get me regular work. The work I got from them helped me to gain enough experience to get on a PGCE course. I rejoined Aspire as a supply teacher after my PGCE as an NQT and am still with them now. They are very friendly and reliable.
