We’re proud of what our
staff say about us

All the consultants are friendly, upbeat and helpful.

Dorota Owen,
Primary Teacher

I’ve been really impressed with the staff at Smart Teachers. They are always incredibly professional, friendly and approachable and reply promptly to any enquiries. They have been incredibly supportive as I’ve returned to teaching and found me supply work suitable for me and my circumstances.

Joan Woollven,
Primary Teacher

One of the biggest appeals of Smart Teachers for me was that the consultants are honest and upfront. After dealing with several other agencies, I felt that this was a refreshing approach, and I think this is one of the unique selling points of Smart Teachers, and why I would always recommend them above other agencies.
