Our Success Stories

Your feedback is exceptionally important to us! Without your suggestions and reviews we wouldn't be where we are today. It is because of this approach that we regulary send surveys to our schools and workforce. However you do not need to wait until you receive a survey! If you would like to write us a testimonial or case study, please do so and email it to our Quality Manager - Julia at julia@academicappointments.co.uk

Thank you

She has kept me informed and this has helped me secure a good position, within a good school. Lauren has been able to match my skills with a post that is ideal for me. Thank you so much for your support, Lauren. I would definitely recommend Academic Appointments'

Peter, Science Teacher

Testimonial

"Following our phone conversation of this afternoon I'd like to, again, thank you and the whole team at Academic Appointments for the excellent representation you have given me and all the bookings over the last few years. I remember that assignments started immediately on signing up with you in February 2014 and proceeded almost continuously, so much so that other supply agencies were very lucky if they got hold of me in time; Academic Appointments were very quick on the draw in the mornings! They have provided by far the most bookings over my time in supply teaching."

Anon, Science Teacher

Testimonial

'I would recommend Academic Appointments, particularly Lauren, to anyone who wants to avoid the hassle of filling in painstaking application forms for roles they think they might like. Lauren cut this part out when she found me my perfect role and by using my CV arranged an interview! I am over-joyed to be starting at a new exciting school in a role that is ideal for me. This is all from one simple phone call and exemplary work from Lauren. My experience with Academic Appointments has been fantastic.'

Deputy Headteacher at The Springfield Centre, Wakefield

Testimonial

'We use Academic Appointments exclusively. They meet our needs 99% of the time. Their staff are always polite and helpful, particularly Olive. They know which of their staff work well in a PRU, it isn’t for everybody, and respond to the feedback we offer. Best of all, they don’t bombard us with phone calls and emails offering fantastic deals'

'I just wanted to write and say thank you to yourself and everyone at Academic Appointments for the help and support given over the last couple of years. I have always had work, I have always had the opportunity to work flexibly and the support given in helping me find a permanent role has been excellent. Thank you'

Principal at Worlaby Academy, Brigg

Testimonial

'I wholeheartedly recommend Clare as a caring and enthusiastic recruitment consultant who has the interest of her clients at heart. I had the pleasure of working directly with Clare both during my time as a supply teacher and now as a Principal of Academy where I contact Clare when I require supply teachers for my own academy.

Before my first meeting with Clare, I was unsure about what to expect but she immediately reassured me and made me feel at ease. With Clare's support and guidance, I started to work as a supply teacher the following week. Clare took the time to get to know each of her clients and through doing this Clare was able to recognise that ideally, I wanted a longer term position and within a week Clare had secured me an interview for such a position. I then went on to become a permanent teacher and then a Headteacher within a few years.

I have used Clare's services for a number of years to provide my school with good quality supply teachers. Clare is always interested in my feedback on the teachers that she has supplied me with. She has a great worth ethic, always striving to do the best she can for her clients and is extremely approachable and friendly'

Headteacher at Alkborough Primary School, Scunthorpe

Testimonial

'As a school, we have worked closely alongside Clare for many years. The much-appreciated service that has been provided by Clare has been both consistent and excellent; she is interested in getting to know the school's individual needs, it's ethos, work ethic and expectations, ensuring that our needs are met appropriately and efficiently. We have always been completely satisfied with the service, which often goes over and above the provision of other consultants that we have worked with'

Krystina, NQT Maths Teacher

Testimonial

'I was reluctant to work through an agency at first, however, Academic Appointments were hugely considerate of my preferences and approached me with a position that they thought would suit me. The position couldn't have better matched what I was looking for and the support I received in the process of applying was lovely and much appreciated!'

Sue, 1:1 Tutor

Testimonial

'I would like to record my thanks for all your support whilst tutoring this particular student. You have been extremely perceptive, offering many useful strategies and ideas. Thank you too for being so understanding, as I no longer have the time or energy to tutor this student, following a change in my circumstances. Hopefully, she will commit to tutoring again and will settle down to learning with a positive and cooperative attitude. 

Thank you again for all the skills and insight you bring to your job; you certainly do not have an easy task, when having to liaise with so many different people throughout the day!'

Chrissie Yates, Retired Assistant Principal and Executive Lead for SCITT

Testimonial

'For all of those retired Senior Leaders out there, who have served their time and earned their stripes by delivering daily strategies that enhance and improve teaching and learning in schools at every level, Academic Appointments is a way forward if, like myself, you still feel you have much to contribute to a much-loved profession.

This organisation is extremely well organised, taking care of the details for you such as renewing DBS checks & advising how to pay tax again having once retired. They also market your skills in a highly professional manner and do the hard part of finding clients who need our skills. However, it is the personal, human approach that is so refreshing to work with. This organisation values what we at the  Leadership “chalk face “ can offer at this level and they do so with honesty, integrity and a smile.

I cannot recommend Academic Appointments highly enough'

Safia, Science Teacher

Orietta, Primary NQT

Testimonial

'I found the staff at Academic Appointments to be friendly, caring and keen to match me with a school that suited my needs.

Paul Anderson, Community Sports Coordinator at Leeds West Academy

Testimonial

'Academic Appointments have very generously supported the ‘Bramley Olympics’ primary school event for the last two years. This is an annual event which is run by staff and students from Leeds West Academy for the local cluster of Bramley Primary Schools. Their sponsorship has been very much appreciated and the funding they have provided has further enhanced the event for all the children. This has been through the provision of certificates for all participants, funding medals for the winning athletes, sponsoring a ‘sportsmanship’ award and providing t-shirts for the sports leaders. In addition to their financial support, they have also been practically involved on the day itself. Staff members from their office have given up their time to support the running of various activities. They stuck to their task with great dedication, showed good humour and most importantly always had a smile on their face to encourage the children! I have always found the team at Academic Appointments to be very professional, easily approachable, accommodating and eager to deliver a first class service. I look forward to working with them again in the future!'
