  • I cannot recommend Supported Recruitment highly enough. I joined just after completing my PGCE and the support and commitment to my development as a teacher I received from Rich and the team has been nothing short of amazing. I started in September in a long-term teaching assistant role which helped me secure a part-time teaching role. I now mix supply work with a permanent role, which has given me the opportunity to work in Key Stage 2. Every time I have worked in a new year group Rich has supported me, up skilling my teaching and giving me confidence to teach across key stages.

  • Supported Recruitment were involved in all aspects of the recruitment process whilst appointing Megan, the latest NQT to join the Hob Moor teaching staff. Supported Director, Richard, became part of the leadership team through the observation and interview process and this partnership ensured we found the right NQT for our teaching team. Ruth Jobson, one of the Supported coaches, now works with Megan on a weekly basis in the classroom and helps nurture her development.

  • The company’s owners are superb teachers themselves. They come into school to work alongside the supply teacher through coaching, thus building in continuous professional development where it really matters – in the classroom.

    Head Teacher, Osbaldwick Primary Academy, York
  • Supported Recruitment have given me brilliant support in the first term of my NQT year. From Richard coming in to introduce the use of technology within my lessons, to Ruth supporting me every week by providing both great resources, advice and moral support. They have both shown the great commitment and passion that Supported Recruitment has for supporting and developing other teachers.

  • I have loved my time working with Supported Recruitment and only wish I had found them earlier. They combine professionalism with friendliness and approachability. As the name suggests, I was always supported in my placements and knew I could rely on the team to answer any questions I had. Thanks again for all your support

    Primary Teacher, York
  • In just three months, Supported Recruitment has provided me with more training and professional development than I have had over the last ten years! From supporting me to experience teaching in KS1, to learning how to use the google classroom, Richard and Gemma have really helped to upskill me and boost my confidence.

    Primary Teacher, York
  • We highly recommend Supported Recruitment. Rich, Gemma and the team are so friendly and helpful and we have always been very satisfied with all the supply teachers they have sent us. It feels as if we are being provided with a personal service, and they are by far the best supply agency we have ever used.

  • What I like the most about SupportED is that you feel as though you work with them, rather than for them. Working with Gemma has been enjoyable and insightful. Both Richard and Gemma have helped me in any way they can and have always offered their support. They offer multiple levels of support both inside and outside the classroom. I’m so grateful for all their help and the opportunities for work they have given me. Thank you Rich!
