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.”

“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
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!
“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.
“I’m always paid on time and any queries are dealt with efficiently”
The Payroll department at Aspire People is really efficient. I’m always paid on time, any queries I do have are dealt with efficiently and quickly. The staff are friendly
and respond to emails or texts without delay. From my point of view Aspire People is an excellent agency to work for.

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.

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
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 .

“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.
Mrs. S Westwood, Business Manager, Plantsbrook 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.

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
“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
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
“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.
“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”
Marvin, Primary NQT, Birmingham
“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.
