Have you ever wondered what it might be like working as a supply teacher through us?
We recently caught up with Angela, who has been working as a supply teacher with us since 2016 (and recently won a wellness hamper), to discuss her working as a supply teacher and her experience of being registered with Athona Education.
How long have you been working with Athona Education?
I have worked with you on and off for about 7 years.
Tell us a bit more about your role?
I work as a supply teacher, supporting a number of different schools across Essex and East London.
You’ve worked with us for so many years now. How do we stand out from other agencies?
I have always found the team to be friendly and approachable. They are honest, efficient and straight talking which I really appreciate.
When you first registered with us, how did you find the compliance process?
I found it really simple. I was given a list of documents I needed to provide and once I had produced those I didn’t need to do anything else. The compliance team dealt with it all for me, including processing a new DBS for me.
On a scale of 1 to 5, how many stars would you give our consultants?
Definitely a 6!
Tell us more!
I work mainly with Rob and Rachel and I’ve found over the years we have built up a great relationship and they really listen to me. They always tell the truth and have no hidden agendas and are genuinely trying to make you happy. On the rare occasion I have been tempted to look elsewhere, I have always been let down, but never with Athona Education.
Do you feel supported and well looked after?
Yes, I feel like the team really do support their staff. When I want to change something, like the days I can work, they are on the phone immediately to sort it out for me.
If you ever face any issues, who do you contact?
I would call and speak to Rachel or Rob – I know that they’ll always support me.
How do you find the communication from the Athona Education team?
I always find the communication clear, but not too often. I don’t feel like I am bombarded with messages and any communication I do get is relevant.
Would you happily recommend Athona Education to your family and friends?
I already have done! My hubby has worked with you for about 3 years and Rachel recently placed him into a permanent role.
