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


“Aspire People don’t harass me like other agencies”

Aspire People take a personal approach, the staff have managed to achieve that fine balance of being readily available to be contacted but not being constantly harassing every morning.


Mr. Kay, Cover Co-Ordinator, Finham Park 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

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!


Shahida, Primary NQT, Birmingham

One of the best agencies in Birmingham with very good consultants

I would like to say massive thank you for helping me find work while I have been with you. I have really enjoyed meeting new people when going to different schools and have gained many experiences. You always looked for work for me, I was looking for long term work. while I have been with Aspire and my consultant has looked after me very well.  If I hear or know of anybody that needs that start in teaching when they have finished their course from university or college I will definitely recommend them directly to Aspire People as they are one of the best agencies in Birmingham and have very good consultants.


Sue, Primary Teacher, Birmingham

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

“I was encouraged to do my PGCE”

Having started as a cover supervisor, Aspire People actively encouraged me to qualify as a teacher and advised me which course to choose.  After gaining my PGCE, I had no hesitation in working with them again as I knew there would be regular work and I would be treated professionally. Over the last three years I have been made to feel part of the team and have always felt supported through any difficult times I have had whilst working in education.


Vincent

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

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

The Qualified teachers we have had from Aspire People are always professional and of a very high standard in comparison to those tried from other agencies.”

“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

“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

“I have been looked after from the minute I registered”

In addition to providing a high level of professionalism, Aspire People offer a friendly, pleasant and efficient environment for supply teachers, office and technical support staff. They provide work on a regular basis and strive to place employees in recurring positions where possible. My consultant has always listened to my needs and fine tuned the assignments I do


Martyne

“Without their support I would not be the Cover Supervisor I am today”

“When I first applied for Aspire People as a Cover Supervisor, I had very little experience of working in schools. My consultant made sure I was fully aware of how to safeguard both myself and the pupils. I was even asked to complete a scenario based questionnaire this not only helped to highlight gaps in my knowledge but taught me precisely how to deal with a range of classroom issues.”


Sam, Cover Supervisor, Leicester

“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.


Valarie

“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.
