ABC are working with a range of good schools in the area and around. while working with them, I gained more confidence and experience from the range of schools and colleges they sent me to.They are managing placement especially the day to day very well and they give me enough notice before every booking.They understand my needs and most of the time, they send me to local schools as distance to work is very important to me. The hardest part of the job is the quick adaptation of the different policies/rules between different schools however, this could as well be the most enjoyable part to work in variety of settings which leads to more experience.

I have worked with ABC frequently throughout my professional career and have always found them to be very supportive and friendly. They always respond to you promptly and often place you in the most appropriate role to your experience. I have found full time employment /had full time job offers made to me twice due to working on supply witb ABC initially. I love the role i have currently been placed in and feel the company is an invaluable support during this difficult and chaotic times
Consistent work, easily contactable in the event of an issue, flexible with days worked, well paid, value the contribution you give, part of TES so plenty of training opportunities, friendly an understanding consultants and management.
Flexible days, good pay rates, any problems swiftly resolved.
Occasionally getting a last minute call.
I have worked for ABC as a primary supply for 5+ years. Work has generally been available when wanted. My consultant is helpful & flexible. I have been able to choose when & where I work quite easily & have found a handful of schools that I return to regularly.
Flexible, understanding, helpful consultants
Day rates can be lower than some other agencies
I registered with them in August 2020 and was told they had plenty of work lined up for when I was cleared to work. 6 months later I have had no work.
No work, lie about amount of work they have available, lack of communication, constantly give work that I am unable to travel to, ignore where I live and the fact that I use public transport only, disorganised.
Awful. No contact whatsoever. When I took a job to them they refused references on completion. Very patronising advisors who weren’t liked by female supply staff- you can guess why. Avoid. Pay is through umbrella. They do aim for decent rates, but still make a living off the back of teachers in the classroom.
ABC Teachers are an excellent agency to work for, the pay is great, I enjoyed working for them and they found me a long term job in a school within days from when I applied. And the lady who found me the job was always there for me when I had a problem.
Stated that I wanted something closer to home as I’ve recently just moved to the area and was not familiar. Gave me a position 50 miles away! They don’t care about your needs. An hour there and back for a 4 hour shift was a joke. Also, mentioned the fact I fell pregnant so it was hard for me to travel that far, after telling them I was ignored!! No response, no phone calls, nothing!!! Absolutely disgusting. You would have thoug they had a bit more compassion. AVOID ht
Really shocking place to work, mess you around with pay, interview system is a joke they make it insanely difficult to even get employed and then give you hardly any work. The promise you the world and then you start and it is just abysmal wouldn't recommend to anyone. I think there is a reason they are always across indeed with jobs everywhere because people done want to work for them, please just stay away they are truly abysmal.
Took me on then had no work. In the space of 3 months I dealt with 3 different people as they kept leaving. First 2 promised me work, I wanted anything they had got. It was only after 2.5 months of no work the 3rd new person finally owned up and said sorry we dont have any work. I was fuming as I could have signed up with someone else. Ironically I got a full time job else where then they wouldn't stop calling saying they had loads of work!!
I have found ABC Teachers a pleasure to work for. The staff are friendly and professional and you can trust them. The consultants listen to you and ensure that you are well suited to the school placements. I have always been offered lots of work through ABC Teachers and I have always been paid promptly. They are an outstanding Teacher Agency who are committed to doing their best for you, the school environment and ultimately the children.
Lots of work and you can talk to your consultant at any time.
Don't get paid during school holidays.
friendly and helpful team who always phone back if they are busy or out of the office.plenty of work offered in my first year.Above all the team list
I am currently employed by this company and I would highly recommend them.My consultant has and continues to be extremely helpful and supportive in ensuring I'm ok and always answers any of my questions as soon as possible.I have regular updates to discuss any concerns I may have and if not just to touch base.ABC are the most proffesional agency I have worked for and also the most genuine too.They really listen to your requirements and do their very best to deliver.I rate my consultant as outstanding,he is a credit to the company.
Salary and flexibility
no pay during school holidays, bank holidays too.
Flexibility you can work when you want to so say you only can work 2 days one week then the next week you can work the 5 days then you can do that. You also teach different subjects ranging from science to performing arts
don`t get paid if there isn't any cover available
Abc teachers seem to pay whatever they feel like regardless of what was agreed. Cowboys don't use. when questions are asked regarding pay you will.be passed from one person to the next. The recruitment consultants here don't seem to be answerable.
