From the moment I joined teaching personnel I have found them professional, helpful and very efficient. I have been in constant employment from the week I was cleared for work. My main consultant Chloe has been fantastic, she is pro active and constantly on hand for any queries or problems. I have worked for consultants in other areas, Howard, Rachel, Steven and they have all been equally brilliant! I would happily recommend teaching personnel.” Louise, Teacher, Preston.


“The team at TP in Preston have been absolutely fabulous. They always have time for you and they take time to get to know you too! Currently I am on a LT placement which is amazing - a great fit and really enjoying being in the classroom again. Thanks all.” Karen, Teacher, Chorley.


“Teaching Personnel found my C.V online and got in contact with me about signing up with them. At first I was sceptical, as I hadn't heard of them before but I am thrilled that I did sign with them.
I met with Chloe, who helped me through the sign up process very quickly. She said she would have work for me within the week and she truly delivered. She keeps in regular contact and provides support, should I need it. Overall, I am very happy with the service I have received from TP and Chloe in particular. If you are new to supply, or an experienced supply teacher, then make sure to sign up with TP.” Adam, Teacher, Preston.


“Taking the plunge into supply teaching was a daunting prospect after leaving my previous post of 10 years. However, I needn’t have been worried! Steven and Chloe worked as a great team to provide me with day to day supply for 4 weeks and by then Chloe had secured me a long term post. It really was as easy as that on my part! The trial day was a great way of me deciding if the long term post was for me and vice-versa. Dealing with Teaching Personnel has been a very positive experience and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. They’re always on the other end of a phone and looking out for your best interests. Thanks again Chloe and Steven.” Sarah, Teacher, Leyland.
