Helpful kind agency

Helpful kind agency.The aim of the primary MFL is a good one and the lesson plans are sometimes fun. In my experience this work has often been peripatetic and a lot of distance needed to be travelled to work for them. Some petrol allowance was paid but not a lot.My home county didn’t really appear much on their radar for jobs and I don’t really understand why.

The best PPA Cover Agency

I love this company. From the very first day they have been really supportive. They make things easy for you and it is important for them that you feel happy and supported. That’s exactly how I feel. Moreover, my line manager is very kind, professional, supportive and friendly. I couldn’t be happier. I strongly recommend this PPA agency.

Interview process

I was very pleased to have a comfortable and cheerful interview where I was put at ease and encouraged to talk about my strengths. The interviewer asked very clear questions that were not designed to 'trip you up'. I was praised for my answers and found the staff members, both on the phone and on the online interview, to be happy and positive. I was told very clearly what the job would involve. I feel I was matched well to the position as my relevant past experience was taken into account. I was contacted the next day with feedback and congratulations. Then I was immediately sent all the details and forms to get started.The contract was very clear to understand. My first impression is that this is a very well organised, professional company.

Great company to get regular teaching work on a hassle-free basis!

Have worked for this company for 2 years, always paid on time. Sometimes they even pay early. Pay has never been wrong. Planning is all provided so I turn up teach and go home which is ideal with me having a young family. Progress tracker in their TeachTool system works great and really saves your time.

Great values, great team, great company

Having worked through Primary PPA Cover for the last few years, I feel very well supported and part of the team, its great to enjoy what I am doing and for my employee to appreciate this! They offer ongoing support and carry out termly observations and training sessions to help us develop and progress in our roles. They are frequently checking in to ensure my timetable is in line with my current needs and will try to line up more/less work where required. Being bank staff for other schools also really helps as the weekly commitment isnt required but additional work us there should I wish to take this

Pros

Cpd, flexible hours, work consistency, team, honesty

Values and Ethos that match me as a person

I have been employed by Primary PPA Cover for almost 3 years now and I haven’t got a bad word to say. My schools fit in with my availability and specialism, the rate of pay is good(£20 per hour). I don’t have QTS therefore consider this a fair rate! I have been offered various other roles while working here to boost my hours too! The company jas carried out multiple observations on my teaching to ensure it meets Ofsted standards and there are always improvements points to action to help you improve. All in all, the support from office staff, my coordinator and school is balanced out very well and would recommend this company to any specialist teacher.

Pros

Flexibilty, work-life balance

Pointless

Registered with the company ages ago through their online application. Not so much as a phone call, an email acknowledgment or anything else for that matter. Very unprofessional company who seem to only want to hire certain people. The one job I did apply for i got a generic message with the usual nonsense on it. From now on I shall be applying with a better agency who might actually give me a chance.

Pros

None

Cons

As above
