What teachers have to say...

Dannielle has been fantastic to work with. I found her to be understanding and highly efficient. My skillset, requirements and requests were heard and understood and I have been matched with teaching work I can throw my heart and soul into. I am always supported by Smart Teachers if I have a query throughout an engagement. I have commitments outside teaching and Dannielle understands my need for flexibility and is very easy to communicate with. Teaching is a demanding and rewarding job and Dannielle makes the process of accessing those teaching roles so easy, I can get on with enjoying it. Thank you for all your support Dannielle.

I want to sincerely thank you for all the hard work you and your team have done for me during my time with Smart Teachers. Smart teachers is a class act. Organised, efficient, always prepared to listen and professional at all times. It has been a pleasure working for you and if ever I am in need of any future supply work, Smart will be my first port of call. Please pass on my sincere thanks to your team.

Mark
Secondary Music Teacher

I wanted to thank you for everything you have done to support me since I first registered in 2016. You have always been open and honest with me about the road from temp to perm and you understood things from my perspective as a long-term supply teacher. I was also impressed with the way you handled things with regard to pay. Right from the start you have been supportive and professional in your approach. I know that the school rates you highly and so do I.

I would like to sincerely thank you for all your hard working in assisting me to secure a placement at Thomas Carr College. My experience with Smart Teachers was fantastic. The team made everything simple and informed me of vacancies regularly. I can't thank the team enough. I will be recommending Smart Teachers to all prospective job seekers, and if I seek employment once again, I will ensure that I do so through Smart Teachers.

Thank you to Smart Teachers, in particular my consultant Sarah McNamara who was able to guide me through the whole process. Her detailed knowledge of the independent school sector in Sydney was outstanding. I sincerely recommend Smart Teachers as THE teacher employment company.

Head of Teaching and Learning
Independent School on Sydney’s Northern Beaches

Smart Teachers have proven themselves to be an exemplary recruitment service, providing a personalised service that delivers high quality teaching staff to match the needs of our school. In recent years we have come to depend on Smart to source daily supply cover, long term placements as well as permanent appointments. Their reliability and level of service has outshone their competitors.

Mayespark Primary School

We have been using Smart Teachers for many years as our preferred supply agency both for day-to-day and long term supply; only resorting to using other agencies in extreme cases. We have found them to be reliable, efficient, and importantly, always attuned to the unique requirements of each individual placement.
