Vision are great to work for, they provide well paid work very regularly and are understanding when you are unavailable for work. Management are lovely. There are staff drinks regularly wherein the atmosphere is casual and everybody is made to feel valued (pre covid). They provide excellent training opportunities to keep you up to date and certified with safeguarding and GDPR etc. Definitely recommend!
Pros
Management and training
Cons
Inconsistent work at times & no holiday pay

I was promised work and needed up being left with none for weeks. The pay is less than other agencies and they tell you if there’s no work to just sign onto universal credit rather than help you get work. I was supposed to be on a permit placement but last minute was told not to go back for an unknown reason but they sent other staff into the school. Day and days I was left not know what to do. They have no communication at all. They tell you they have loads of work but they don’t yet they will keep advertising for other people to join. I promise you they have no work for you!!! They have been advertising for people in the Newcastle area to join but they don’t have work for you. You will make around £58 a day but other companies offer at minimum £65. Awful company they don’t care.
Pros
None
Cons
So so so many

Having worked for this group, for over 2 years, currently in another role due to, Covid and no, supply, I would only ever work for this supply agency because of their reliability, clear and consistent process and access to training opportunities. They are protective of their workforce and always look for the most beneficial roles to, suit you. Whilst I am currently not able to undertake supply they are still working to find me a full time role and I am grateful for all, they do, have done and continue to do. All other supply have let me down and Vision are the only one worth working for.
Pros
Reliability
Cons
Covid destroying supply teaching.

So when I took this job I was promised constant work in my area. In the last 3 month I haven't worked a single day for them, there has been no work whatsoever. As a single parent I have to pay for childcare so I have wasted money putting my child in nursery with the promise for work daily, to then be given no work at all.Absolutely furious with the company. Total joke
Pros
None
Cons
Shocking, liars, promise for work and give you none

There is usually plenty of work to be had if you are not fussy where you go. I was put into guaranteed 3days a week contract up until COVID 19 hit schools. The daily rate of pay is a little more than some other agencies depending on you experience. The staff are always really polite and friendly. They do their best to fit in with your needs.
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
No pay over summer holidays

They are not aware of the current legislation and not clear during the interview process . Lack of transparency and support after the interview process .Too many ambitious young staff not competent and with no experience in the educational sector. A blaming culture amongst staff which shows very poor internal communication .

I have been extremely disappointed with this company. I signed up in June and have been finding it difficult to get in touch with them. I speak to difference people constantly, and there is no communication between the members of staff asking me over and over for the same documents. I have emailed them about some issue about my documents to try and start working and they have not got back to me and I have given up with this company. I want to work and be able to teach but I just feel disapointed with this company.
Cons
Communication

I have worked for Vision for Education for quite some time now, this being my second time and I couldn't recommend them enough. All staff are extremely supportive, friendly and genuinely want to find work that suits you and your circumstances. They are flexible and the pay is very competitive. I have always felt like a valued worker and would never contemplate joining another agency. Thank you for everything!

Help you get work in Residential or schools. If you are good with them then they are good with you. Just be honest and everything will flow nicely. Good management, very friendly would recommend to work with them.

Since 2017, Vision (Sheffield Branch) have been fabulous to me, providing work on 80 - 85% of the available school days. They always have longer- term placements available, if you desire them.
Pros
Welcoming staff and host schools/ variety every, single day.
Cons
No work, SSP or sick-pay in this current crisis (March 2020)
