  • Personal, friendly and professional approach when dealing with our school's vacancy needs.

  • I just wanted to thank the team for a fantastic Team Teach course. I can't tell you how much I learnt over two days and how my confidence has really grown in my understanding of self restraint and appropriate physical restraint too. I truly believe the skills and knowledge that Steph and Becca have taught me will enable me to confidently make the move into SEN, PRU & EBD sector of education. I also feel the theory taught throughout the course really underpinned all of the physical aspects perfectly, such as holds and restraints.

    I am so thankful for the opportunity to participate and improve my own professional development, I will be recommending the Team Teach course with yourselves at Supply Desk to others in the education industry. Thanks again to Steph & Becca for their fantastic, interactive hands on approach.

  • Clare Hooton and her team at Supply Desk Sheffield were a tremendous help in transitioning to the UK from Australia. I first worked as a supply teacher in 2010, and within a couple weeks they had found me a year long maternity cover position in English. On my return to teaching in the UK in 2016 I was provided with supply work each day and within a week I received a semester long block in Geography. The GPS contract provided me with peace of mind, and at each step of the way I found Supply Desk highly professional and extremely helpful.

  • Australian teachers in Leeds UKI am currently employed medium to long term as a supply teacher just outside of Leeds, working for Supply Desk.

    Before leaving Australia to come to England for work, I was told I was going to be working as a supply teacher in and around Leeds, working on a fairly day-to-day basis. However, about a week prior to my move, I got a call from Neil saying that he’d been able to sell me on a longer term placement in a local primary school.

    Working less as a supply teacher, and more as a permanent classroom teacher has definitely been beneficial for me as a teacher, as I’ve been able to see the ins and outs of an English school and classroom, and it’s allowed me to gain more of a routine from day-to-day.

    On top of finding me a job longer term, Neil, along with Ben – also from Supply Desk – met me with a cheery smile, upon my arrival at Manchester airport. The boys drove me back to a hotel, and spoke to me about how things may look over the next week, as I look to get myself settled into work. Over the next few days, Neil assisted me in obtaining a UK phone number, and has been very accommodating in helping me get my bank account sorted out, which hasn’t been as easy a task as we may have hoped.

    I am constantly getting texts and phone calls from both Neil and Ben, checking on how things are going at my school, ensuring that everything is running smoothly, and above all, that my safety and best interests are paramount above all else.

    I would highly recommend the service that has been provided to me by anyone looking for supply work. Neil and the team at Supply Desk in Leeds have been incredibly helpful and happy the whole way through the process.

    Ryan Timmerman Australian Teacher in Leeds“Moving country and basically starting a new life was always going to be daunting and nerve racking. Although when you have an incredible amount of support with planning and processing stages, it takes that stress away.

    The team at Teach In in Australia (Jenna and Gemma) were phenomenal in keeping in contact and ensuring my mates and I were up to date with all the forms . They were always happy to answer all questions (no matter what time of day it was).

    Before we left we had been contacted via phone and email by our UK consultant (Neil Waddington). Although the time difference was sometimes difficult to manage, again Neil was open to any questions and happy to help in any way possible. Neil kept in contact with us on how the job hunting was going and ensured there was going to be plenty of work.
    Two mates and I landed in Leeds on Thursday the 12th of January 2017. Neil greeted us at Manchester airport and drove us to our apartment in Leeds. He made us feel welcome with a night out on the town on Friday night and on the following Monday had two Job interviews each for us lined up. It was that Tuesday that I accepted a full time supply position at an “Outstanding school”.

    Without the help and assurance from all the staff at Teach In / Supply Desk and Neil as our on the ground consultant, there is no way that my house mates and I would have been able to land on the ground running as smoothly as we did.”
