Testimonial Tuesday

I have been working for Cover since going back to work after the birth of my son in 2013. My husband and I decided that supply teaching would work well with his shift work, enabling me to work on my husband’s days off. This gave us valuable family time back and it also meant that we didn’t have to use childcare for our little boy.

I love working for Cover. They have always taken into consideration my skills, areas of expertise and my preferences when matching me with schools. Unlike other agencies I have worked for, they never try to push me into working in a year group or school I am uncomfortable with. Because of this, I have been able to build up a good rapport with a small group of schools (my favourites) over the years. I am always requested for by my regular schools, which takes up most of my working week and means that I rarely go to new schools. This is great for me, as I love to feel part of a team and my schools certainly make me feel this way.

When Cover was taken over by Class People, I was worried that things would change and that I would lose my regular schools. However, Maddie and her team have worked very hard to make sure that they retain good working relationships with their schools and teachers, communicate efficiently and get me enough work for my availability. I always recommend Cover to teachers looking to do supply, as the best company to work for.
