I am a teacher with over twenty five years experience and recently took the momentous decision to give up my permanent position in favour of the flexibility of supply work. Servoca Education Resourcing was recommended to me by a headteacher who used their services and who was impressed by the quality of the teachers they employed. I wanted to be associated with such an agency and so made contact immediately.
The level of support I have been given from my consultant has been second to none. He speedily arranged an initial interview and during our relaxed yet comprehensive discussion he made an accurate assessment of my skills and experience in order to match me with schools in which I feel happy and productive.
He continues to support me. For example, making contact at least once a week, is completely flexible about my availability and ensures I teach in the same schools in order to ensure I feel secure and to better match the needs of the children concerned. Whenever I teach in a school new to me, he contacts me that afternoon to ascertain how I feel about working there again and uses this information when arranging further assignments.
This has been my first ever experience of working for an agency and I have found the high levels of professionalism an immensely positive experience. I highly recommend them for both teachers who wish to have a great team behind them and to the schools who need teachers they can trust to provide a high quality educational experience for their pupils.
