    Hi I have been a supply teacher since Feb.
    LTA is still around (Reed) and are good for TA type work, usually one day at a time.
    Radstad (used to be SELECT education) is good.
    Hays Education is a puzzle, I have talked to them, they seem very enthusastic, so I filled in the forms but have not got a CRB back from them they have not requested payment and so have net got any work from them.
    I am also signed up with 2 smaller, Local, agencies but no work from them to date.
    Good luck.
     
  4. I am also an NQT and doing supply work coz cant find a job [​IMG] I signed up with 3 when I left Uni:
    1. LTA: I payed for my CRB but in the whole year, I did not even get called once - or rather, on occassions (I can only recall once actually) when I did get called by them, another agency had got to me first so I couldn't work for them - My CRB was a waste....

    2. Keystage in Blackburn - They called me fairly often (at peak times of course) the first year, I haven't heard much from them this year though....

    3. Hays - Kept me VERY busy - they are brilliant and I would and do recommend them to anyone who mentions to me that they are joining supply agencies. I didn't have to pay for my CRB and my consultant is super.... really friendly and understanding.....

    Good Luck...
