Within one minute of sending my CV, Aspire contacted me for an interview
Aspire have been very influential in my career. After qualifying as a teacher, I was unsuccessful in securing a full-time teaching job. Within one minute of sending my CV, Aspire contacted me for an interview. They have been able to place me in a school on a long-term basis, which has been welcomed with gratitude. I am grateful and thankful to all of the team working for Aspire people, they are a great agency to work for. All members of staff have shown true professionalism and worked hard to ensure that myself and other colleagues who I have met through the agency are always working.

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.

I am very pleased with the service I receive from Aspire. I feel valued as a member of their team
I have been working as a supply teacher for Aspire since March 2013. They have provided me with work at a variety of schools, both locally and further afield. I am currently completing a long-term cover at an East Staffordshire school. I am very pleased with the service I receive from Aspire. I receive an email confirming each contract very promptly, and the pay system is very efficient, and easy to use. My consultant is very professional at all times, and is always aware of my requirements. She has maintained very accurate records, and contacts me regularly for feedback, and confirmation of my availability. I feel valued as a member of their team, and would highly recommend Aspire to both schools and teachers.

Safeguarding documentation is fantastic
I have used Aspire People since 2009, during this time I have found my consultant, to be very professional, honest and accommodating. The quality of safeguarding documentation is fantastic, having photographic evidence already on it gets a very big plus mark from our front office staff! Our business manager also likes the easy and efficient way that payments can be made. Overall I am very impressed with the service provided .

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.

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.

“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.
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.

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
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.

“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.

“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.
