NQT Testimonials

Take a look at what Newly Qualified Teachers say about Teaching Personnel's NQT Pool.

"After I finished the sign up process with Teaching Personnel I was soon in schools. I experienced a variety of schools providing short term cover, these short visits let me see how these different schools operated allowing me to observe what worked and what did not, what was unique for one school and what was common practice and I believe this period of observation has helped my practice.

Beyond short term posts I have also been arranged for a longer term position at a school willing to process my NQT year which was my most important concern at the time. While this has been a difficult year I have had fairly consistent work."

- Richard Lamb, Kent


"Whilst working with Teaching Personnel I have always felt fully supported. Mark has been great in responding to email queries as soon as possible; calling to check-in to see how I'm doing and calling with updates that he has received from the school. He has always been completely honest with responses and kept me in the loop as soon as he found out something new.

Mark has really helped with finding out as much information as possible surrounding the completion of my NQT year and always tried to stay on top of things especially regarding the length of placements and whether I was enjoying the placement etc.

I cannot recommend Mark and Teaching Personnel highly enough and would say that he has made it so simple and easy that I felt I didn't have to worry about anything regarding the completion of my NQT year." 

Sarah Sillett, Hull & Newcastle


"The supply teaching opportunities presented to me, in such a challenging period, have been superb. Teaching Personnel have provided me with a range of short and longer-term teaching roles, in a variety of schools. I have found that working in a range of schools has improved my overall teaching ability and experience. " 

 James Jackson, Hull & Newcastle


"My experience with Teaching Personnel has been very positive and it will be a service that I will be sure to recommend with other NQT's. I have found it to be a great way to start my teaching career and it has helped me develop and grow as a teacher and also as a person. " 

Lesley Watson, Hull & Newcastle


"Great service! Really easy and quick. Vetting is efficient and effective. Rachel Dickinson is lovely and really easy to talk to and ensures that everything is done well and to a good standard. Would recommend to anyone who is looking for short stay work and long term! " 

Jack Pugh, Surrey & Berks Secondary & SEN branch
