I've worked with Aspire now for two years and found staff always to be friendly. Emma has always done her best to help me and sort out the occasional glitch. I think we have a friendly and respectful working relationship - I never feel like I'm an object or commodity, but part of a well-run team. I don't feel any less valued for wanting only to work part-time. Looking forward to working with you in the Autumn term. Best wishes. Cynthia xx
I have worked for Aspire People for over a year now and I have always found them very professional. On the occasions that I have worked for them they have always ensured that they have provided me with precise information about what the job entails. The schools I have worked at have been lovely and I have always felt that Emma (who is my main contact) has good relations with them and this ensures that she is happy to place me there safe in the knowledge that I will fit in well. Overall my experience so has been nothing but positive and i would happily encourage others to join this agency.
My consultant Emma is amazing. She listens to my needs and does everything in her power to ensure these are met. She knows her schools/clients so well and shares important information about any new school visited. She identified that I was on the wrong Tax Code and has helped to sort out the correct one with back pay. Emma is always cheerful and friendly and seems genuinely interested in me as a person and not just another faceless employee. Thank you Emma for a fantastic first year of supply work.
I've worked for Aspire for a few months and I have been so impressed with the company overall. Emma is so friendly and accommodating. She is extremely professional yet manages to make me feel like I've known her for years. I been sent to some amazing schools and have always felt that Emma have kept me informed as to expectations. If I have had any issues, Emma has dealt with them immediately. I trust her completely and always feels that she has my best interests at heart. Thanks for everything Emma xx
I have been working for Aspire People doing supply work since January 2017. From the beginning my consultant, Emma Allen, has been fantastic. She made me feel at ease as she is so friendly and caring. She assured me my interests would be taken into account and they always are. She is honest, open and realistic which is really important. She always does her best to get me work and I have been lucky to work at some lovely schools. She works well with schools, having good communication, as she has ensured I have been rebooked by many of the schools. I often recommend Aspire People to others and especially Emma.
I applied to Aspire online and was pleased with how quickly I received an interview. The interview was very relaxed and gave me all the relevant information I required. I have been extremely fortunate having Ann-Marie as my consultant as she quickly assessed my requirements and has given me some lovely schools to work in on the days I have requested. I feel I have a real relationship with Ann-Marie and I get a sense that she considers the placements that will suit me the best. Completing time sheets and sending them in via email is very convenient and the payslips and payments into my bank are always on time and correct. I would highly recommend Aspire if you are considering supply teaching.
I first contacted Aspire People in the autumn of 2015, when I was looking for cover supervisor work at schools local to me. John Bergin was appointed my consultant and he provided an excellent service right from the point of I dealing with initial paperwork, all the way through to my leaving Aspire People in the autumn of 2016. I was allocated work very quickly and started to attend a fantastic local secondary school on a regular basis, so much so that I was offered a twelve months full time cover supervisor contract by the school in the autumn of 2016, which has suited me down to the ground. Whilst I was with Aspire People, John always maintained regular contact with me and I always thought he did his very best to give me as much notice as possible of work placements. Time sheets were always processed promptly and I always received payment on time. When my main placement school could not provide work for me on particular days, John always strove to locate other options for me. John impresses as a very hard working consultant, who always tries to do his very best for his you. He has a very approachable personal manner and a good sense of humour! Thank you, John and Aspire People!
The service that I have received from Aspire People has been excellent. My consultant Steve Delves and his colleague Anne-Marie have given me a steady supply of day-to-day teaching assignments in areas that I can get to. Steve has also consulted me about longer term contracts. They are approachable and friendly while providing a very professional service. Steve took into account very carefully the preferences that I had in terms of year groups and areas as I don't drive. I have been very happy with the schools that I have worked in and I feel that Steve has great working relationships with them. The rates Aspire offer are very good compared to other agencies and they have an efficient payroll service, so I have never had any problems with pay. The consultants and other departments in the agency have always answered my queries quickly. I cannot recommend Aspire enough! Even right at the end of the academic year I am receiving work! They clearly have a wide network of contacts with schools. I hope to continue a great working relationship with Aspire in the next academic year! Thank you Steve, Anne-Marie and Aspire People xxx
