Here at Tara we understand the challenges schools and teachers face in finding that perfect match
If you’re a teacher or cover supervisor looking for a permanent, contract or daily supply position, then you’ve come to the right place. With many years of combined experience in education recruitment, the TARA team is armed with a wealth of knowledge and an excellent contacts book across the Telford, Shropshire, West Midlands and Staffordshire regions.
Having developed strong working relationships with schools and teachers alike, we believe in providing long-term support, rather than ‘quick fix’ appointments, and pride ourselves in working hard on your behalf for as long as you need us. Our success lies in our thorough understanding of schools’ unique requirements, matched with the desire to ensure that each and every child under the instruction of a TARA teacher receives the most appropriate care and attention to help them flourish.

We have been using Tara to source our supply teachers for the past twelve months. They have provided us with a professional and efficient service without losing that personal touch which is also important. Irrelevant of their hours (early start/late finish) it is always possible to get in touch with someone. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to other schools.
Since leaving a full time job In a school that made me very un-happy, meeting a consultant at Tara, I felt a glimmer of hope. She listened to me and I felt she was genuinely interested in what I had to say. We are now in regular contact during the week where she sends me jobs for the week and wakes me in a morning where I go into schools last minute, when teachers are poorly. I often email her in the week to thank her for the work as the schools I work in are lovely, welcoming and supportive.I always thought having lots of new sets of children each day would be daunting but with a drama background I throw myself into it and love seeing new faces every day, when I get to see them for a second time I leap out of bed!I have gained so much experience in a range of different schools and settings around Telford and Wolverhampton and I am now loving what I do again! I even enjoy the marking again! It’s crazy.I want to thank the staff at TARA for being so approachable and friendly. They make me so happy I chose their company. Thanks so much for making me feel like I can do anything !
I use Tara for the majority of my supply needs because the teachers are professional, arrive ready for work and ensure that the pupils are offered the same standard of teaching as the students regular teacher, the teachers leave feed back for the returning teacher on progress, behaviour and rewards, We have continuity of supply teachers as who will come back time and time again.
In the rare case of any issues, Tara are quick to respond and the majority of the teachers are local and can arrive by 8.15 am if I need to call them in the morning. The teachers are happy to follow the Academy’s Dress Code, my contacts are always on hand no matter what time of day you call to help and are always honest on the opinion of the supply teachers on their day at the Academy and If Tara can not find a suitable person they will let me know in plenty of time for me to contact another agency. I am happy to recommend Tara to another Academy / School
Having never done cover before I was faced with the challenge of getting in a supply teacher and on my list of ‘contacts’ Tara was at the top, so I thought that was a good place to start.
I can honestly say I was greeted by such a friendly and helpful operative who, once I explained how new to this I was, instantly put me at my ease and talked me through the whole process.
In the 7 weeks I have been standing in for ‘Cover’ Tara have always been first on my list and I have been supported by every member of staff who I have dealt with.
I would thoroughly recommend this company to anyone as one of the most helpful, professional and friendly companies you would wish to deal with.
