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.

“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.”

Emily, always happy on the phone, helping with any queries, nothing ever feels like too much trouble
During my time working for Aspire I have found them to be a very friendly and reliable. My consultant Emily does her best to make sure that I have a steady flow of work. Her attention to detail is excellent and the information she provides enables me know exactly where i’m going and what I am going to do. Emily communicates in a very professional manner whilst also allowing for a more relaxed, personal touch. Always happy on the phone, helping with any queries, nothing ever feels like its too much trouble for her. I have no issues, she is a pleasure to work with.
Adam, Cover Supervisor, Cannock
“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
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 have had nothing but first rate service from Aspire People”
“Since I first started working with Aspire People and my consultant Adam, I have had nothing but first rate service. I have found them to be assiduous in finding work placements, and supportive once on placement in all ways. I have been so impressed I recommended a friend. Adam is a great guy and I really cannot praise him too highly.”
Mr. Fisher, Nottingham English Supply Teacher
“The Woodlands School gets vouchers from Aspire People, we put them towards prize giving for pupils”
I frequently recommend Aspire People. Sometimes to acquaintances looking for work, to our own staff looking to gain experience before a GTP qualification or for those looking for a permanent position. The school received some vouchers from Aspire People which the Head of Science used to provide prizes for attainment for students of all abilities in science. Not only does the school benefit but the candidate we recommend and Aspire People.
Mr. Quigley, Deputy Headteacher, The Woodlands School
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
We often get information on safeguarding before we hear it in school
Aspire People is professional, informative and extremely helpful. Communication has always been excellent, both by email and telephone. We are often given information on safeguarding practices before we have even heard them in school.
Mrs. Beechey, Cover Co-Ordinator, The Crestwood School
“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.
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 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
“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.
