Testimonial, Kim Townson – Teaching Assistant

I found the ‘Quality Assured Teacher Course’ very useful in that I met up with other Teachers/TAs and it was interesting to hear their comments and experiences.  It was also a confidence builder in that the lady who took the course was very experienced and addressed everything we commented on and gave a lot of sound advice. The whole experience was very valuable and worthwhile.

It was also nice to touch base at Principal Teachers!

Testimonial, Hannah Clarke – Supply Teacher

I thought the course was productive and informative. It was delivered well; the course leader was easy-going and approachable which made for a relaxing atmosphere.  The hand-outs were very useful, including lots of top tips and helpful advice. Overall, the course supplied the right amount of information for new supply teachers but was a nice ‘refresher course’ for present supply teachers too.

Testimonial, Rachel Trewhitt – Supply Teacher

I appreciated the opportunity to attend the Quality Assured Teacher course and I felt that it was pertinent to both teachers and teaching assistants alike.  Personally it enabled me meet people in the same situation as myself, ask questions if necessary, listen to people’s experiences and reassure myself that I will be providing high quality supply cover.

Testimonial, Gail McMillan – Supply Teacher

Super inset yesterday for all of us who work for Principal Teachers…. Besides the reminders about best practice, it was fabulous to network with others in the organisation. More like this, please, perhaps one each term.

Testimonial, Katie Brown – Supply Teacher

I am grateful for the fantastic introduction to teaching that working for Principal Teachers has provided me with. I believe that my supply work has increased my confidence and experience within Key Stage Two; this is what I stated that I had hoped to achieve during my interview with Victoria in September. I am also highly grateful for the support that was given to me when I had queries and concerns regarding various aspects of my job, it was truly appreciated.

Thank you for the opportunities and support that you have provided me with in these past few months.

Principal Teachers are a fair organisation who value and foster positive relationships between themselves; the staff they employ; and of course, the schools. Not an easy balancing act, but it works!


Testimonial, Stephen Clifton – Supply Teacher

The online diary at Principal Teachers ensures that this system works well, and avoids the potentially awkward phone calls I have experienced with other agencies, because both parties know in advance when bookings are expected, or indeed, when they have already been secured. They also work hard to ensure that I get work within the age range that is suited to my skills and experience.


Testimomial, Chris Walker – Supply Teacher

I would, without question, recommend Principal Teachers to other professionals, whatever their level of experience, as their personal and tailored approach fits the assignments with the skills and needs of the teacher.

At Principal Teachers, you are a name, not a number, a colleague, not a statistic, and a teacher, not a supply teacher.

Testimonial, Le-Cateau Primary School

Principal Teachers recruitment procedures are first rate and they always respond to any concerns that we may have (but these are few and far between).

We will continue to use Principal Teachers because they are by far the best supply agency in our patch ……….. and they provide a great cup of coffee if you are passing!

We have been with Principal Teachers since their inception and have always maintained an excellent relationship with them. They always try hard to fulfill any staffing needs that we may have.
