About WorkwithSchools

WorkwithSchools is proud to be involved in Minster FM's Test the Teacher and is looking forward to a great competition amongst the 12 contending schools.

The WorkwithSchools team have over 50 years' schools recruitment experience placing permanent teachers, supply teachers and support staff in Primary and Secondary schools, colleges and nurseries; that’s experience their candidates and schools can depend on.

Don’t just take their word for it, look at what their candidates and clients say about WorkwithSchools...


“I just wanted to say thank you for all of the supply work you have secured me since moving here, especially the long term supply. I have gained so much experience working in a variety of schools.

“Throughout, you have taken into consideration my availability and career development ideas and accommodated these when finding work. I am now happily working in a long-term role, which you arranged for me.

“From the outset, you quickly found work for me and have provided a high level of personal and professional support. It has been brilliant to return to schools around the city to undertake supply work, allowing me to build relationships with staff and pupils”


“Your supply teacher was punctual, organized and very friendly. She was self motivated and got on well with my staff. She was excellent in the classroom and has dealt excellently with difficult classes. Happy to have her any time!”

“We are very pleased with the service and supply staff we have had in school through WorkwithSchools - I can't think of anything you would need to improve. The service is very well organised and the follow up after we have had the supply has been excellent.

“The quality of your teachers are far superior and you know exactly who we want.  It was a clear choice to short list both of yours and we can’t decide!”
