Testimonials

Supporting teachers in different keystages

“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.”

Support in all areas of the recruitment process

“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.”

Debbie Cousins | Head Teacher, Hob Moor Primary Academy, York


Coaching teachers in the classroom

“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.”

Lesley Barringer | Head Teacher, Osbaldwick Primary Academy, York


Commitment and passion for teaching

“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.”

Professional and Approachable

“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 ”

Nicola French | Primary Teacher, York


Providing personlised training and support

“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. ”

Jen Cliff | Primary Teacher, York


Providing a personal service

“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”

Judy Sandilands | School’s business manager, Poppleton Ousebank Primary Academy


Supporting Newly Qualified Teachers

“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! ”

Laura Douse | Newly Qualified Teacher, York


Supporting Newly Qualified Teachers on long term placements

“SupportED Recruitment have given me such a great start to my teaching career. During my time with them I have been supported both professionally and personally, which has enabled me to become more confident in myself and my teaching ability.
During my long term supply, Gemma has been my SupportED mentor. She came in to school to support me with all the aspects of teaching I needed on a weekly basis.
They are reliable, friendly and a brilliant company to work for.”

Carys Williams | Newly Qualified Teacher, York


Supporting teachers on long term placements

“I would just like to say how great it has been working with Supported. I joined in January and have had work pretty much everyday. During my long term position I was very fortunate to have the support of Gemma working directly with the children we needed to boost for phonics screening. With her commitment, useful resources and support we achieved our targets. I have been very grateful to work with Supported Recruitment and look forward to my future working with them.”

Selina Mitha | KS1 teacher, York


Supporting Unqualified Teachers

“I have really enjoyed working with Richard and Gemma over the past month in various different schools. As an unqualified teacher, it has been really useful to have their support when on supply and they have provided me with lots of useful ideas. Through completing supply in the term before my NQT year, it has allowed me to visit a variety of schools and gather ideas for my own classroom for September, as well as building my confidence. I would recommend SupportED Recruitment to anyone, especially for those just starting out in their teaching career.”

Kayleigh Hannan | Primary Degree Graduate, University York St John’s


Passionate about developing and supporting teachers

“I have worked alongside Richard for 10 years creating links across our schools, developing literacy and supporting staff. We have both worked together in a coaching scenario when we became deputy heads. Richard is passionate about developing and supporting other teachers to help them succeed.”

Lorraine Atkinson | Deputy Headteacher, Heworth CE Primary School, York


Effective coaching and support

“Richard is an excellent communicator and able to identify strengths and areas for development with careful observations, through honest discussion and by knowing individuals. His experience and success in the classroom mean he empathises with the daily challenges teachers face but also is able to coach and offer support effectively.”

Anne Foreman | Deputy Headteacher, Huntington Primary Academy, York


Nurture and develop

“Richard is dedicated to supporting both teachers and leaders in education. I have known Richard for over 14 years now and I have continued to be impressed with his ability to nurture and develop the potential of others.”

Adam Cooper | Headteacher, Knavesmire Primary School, York


A strong leader in education

“I have known Richard for over 14 years and he continues to demonstrate that he is dedicated to the teaching profession. He has shown himself to be a strong leader in education and I am sure he’ll continue to support and develop other members of the teaching profession.”

Matthew Brown | Deputy Headteacher, Osbaldwick Primary School, York


A great service

“I have really valued the work that Rich and the team have put into helping us with supply cover. We have now had three different members of staff from Supported Recruitment working within our team and they have all had a positive impact in the classroom. Great support, from phone call through to the teacher joining us in school. Of course it goes without saying that we will continue to use Supported recruitment for any future supply requirements.”
