Heart Teaching have looked after me really well during my work placement. I had a great experience in the lovely school and felt well supported by all staff. I recommend and would not hesitate in working for them again.

Heart Teaching agency is the one which I would highly recommend to someone who likes to work in a school as Student Support Assistant . Justin and Felicity from the Agency - very supportive, giving quick and accurate information about the school , replying for emails or phone calls promptly if I had any concerns or questions. They also helped to find work during half term when school is closed - they offered me work during Mega Camp which I really enjoyed.

Thank you. Guys you are amazing especially Nick and faith .I will always recommend others to join your agency and they don't give up on you . they try and get you work .

Good company to work for, wasn't reliable enough for me but also think of you when your not working for them they still call

Heart Teaching are a great agency to work for, their staff are always understanding and supportive, and always give helpful and accurate information regarding school placements. Support or advice is always just a phone call away, and an extra bonus is that they pay highly competitive rates! Highly recommended if you are looking to work in schools as support staff, which I do myself.

They were really friendly and helped me find a job. Thanks!
