“Aspire People’s Work Experience programme taught our pupils about the working world”
Aspire People organised a Work Experience programme for Plantsbrook School. This was a major commitment by Aspire People and the students found the experience very beneficial. It gave them the opportunity to understand commitments of a working environment and develop skills in communication and organisation. We look forward to working with them again.

“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 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.

“The quality of Aspire’s services are second to none.
I have used other agencies before and Aspire have always treated me with professionalism and respect. Alan’s attention to detail is meticulous. I have always found Al professional, approachable, knowledgeable, amenable and diligent in everything he does. Al, on several occasions, has gone out of his way to help and support me and make me feel a valuable part of the Aspire team. Thank you for what you do Al.”
Stella, Leicester Supply Teacher
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.

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.

I was very wary and nervous at the start, but my first day of work was great!
I worked with Aspire a few months, 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!
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.

“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 have been in work more or less everyday
My consultant, Mark Birmingham, ensured I was in work more or less everyday. All the placements I had were at nice schools, within a reasonable travelling distance – Mark always checked whether the schools were appropriate for me to travel to before waking me up!! A lot of my earlier placements had been day-to-day, which sometimes led to weekly placements at schools.
Shahida, NQT Supply Teacher, Birmingham
“I am an ambassador for Aspire People”
My consultant has found me work every day which has led to some wonderful long term assignments. When I am sent to an assignment I feel as if I am visiting the school as an ambassador for Aspire People and I am proud to work for what I feel is by far the best teaching agency in the West Midlands.
Aspire People has always been a pleasure to work with, totally professional,efficient and patient.
I have worked for Aspire People for four years and during that time, Aspire People has always been a pleasure to work with, my consultant Mark has always been totally professional,efficient and patient. I have always felt that Mark listened to my requirements for work and has consistently tried to match me with appropriate schools and year groups. Mark has been very understanding with family commitments so I have recommended Aspire People to several friends and to other supply teachers, and will continue to do so in the future.
Sarah, Birmingham Primary Supply Teacher
“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.
If it wasn’t for Aspire I don’t think I’d be completing my NQT induction
I am now completing my NQT year with a school I was introduced to through Aspire. Mark offered me to do a placement at the school, and this led to the school offering me a position. Had it not have been for Aspire, I don’t think I’d be completing my NQT year this year. I’d definitely recommend Aspire to other NQTs looking for permanent work.
Yasmin, Primary NQT, Birmingham
Friendly, efficient, fast and professional
We have used Aspire People for both short and long term supply teacher roles, the quality of the candidates that they have sent to us has been high, and we regularly have candidates return to us for further cover work. The aftercare and general service we receive is always friendly, efficient, fast and professional; timesheets are emailed to me via Aspire People along with all safeguarding information the day a booking is made. In turn invoices are always prompt and give the relevant details that our finance department require to be able to make payments.
