  • 5 star review  I have only marvelous things to say about this agency. When I first had my interview with them I was desperate because I wanted to gain experience in a secondary school and I couldn't get any place to start with. Then, I was so lucky to have met such a great team of professional workers who helped me throughout all the things I had to do step by step and always comforting me that I would find a place to start my career. My main guidance was Alison Watkis who explained me in details everything I needed to do and never doubt for a moment that I could not find a place. Thanks to Alison, I had one of the best experiences of my life in such an amazing school. I can't thank them enough for this awesome opportunity. I highly recommend this agency for any teaching role one might look for from TA, NQT's to professional teachers. A great team of professionals who are always there for you, ready to help you with everything you need. A huge THANKS guys, you rock ��

  • positive review  Clarus Education, and in particular Nikki Webber, have offered a proactive and quality service in finding me a teaching position quickly and efficiently. Having found myself looking for employment at an unusual time in the year for teaching positions, and after a time of personal tumult, Nikki was kind and generous in her approach. I'm hugely grateful to Nikki and Clarus for their help, and will be recommending them in the future.

  • 5 star review  Danny was brilliant. He found me the perfect placement at a school I loved as my first one with clarus and have been there a year now. I have applied for a permanent position at the school and got it ! He's been really supportive when I've been having a few personal issues and I just couldn't have had a better experience. Thanks guys !
