Kirsty has developed a company that offers friendly, efficient, and caring service. They care about ‘getting it right’ and take the time to work with you, listening to your requirements, ensuring that the needs of the school and its pupils are carefully matched to the candidates they supply. They are open, honest and accurate in the assessment of their candidates; certainly the quality of those provided have been of a high standard and those on long term assignments have proved to be as effective and committed as if they were employed direct. Immediate assistance with last minute supply requests is efficient and is refreshingly honest when confirming availability of supply to meet requirements. Their tariffs are very fair – reflecting a pay for what is used pricing structure. Administration is efficient and accurate. If occasional adjustments are required, these are always dealt with swiftly. TARA are calm and reassuring, and do not cold call for business – instead focussing on providing tailored support whenever you call. I would not hesitate to recommend Tara Professional Recruitment for your supply requirements.
It was great for so many supply teachers of other subjects to access this free course supported by Tara Professional Recruitment for updating our knowledge in GCSE secondary education maths and the new framework of the new 9 to 1 exam criteria and access to online learning to gain a maths certificate!
I recently attended a two day Teacher Specialist Skills Training course in mathematics (GCSE). I had been looking for a SKE (Subject Knowledge Enhancement) course in mathematics for a while but it had been tricky to find one that I could do when I wasn’t in a current role, so this one, through Tara, was ideal. It was aimed at non-specialist teachers wishing to become more confident in teaching secondary mathematics. I am trying to move into secondary teaching, from primary; mathematics is one of the subjects that I am interested in teaching as I love teaching it in primary, particularly to upper key stage 2. Attending this course really boosted my confidence in my own mathematical subject knowledge and gave me some fresh ideas that I could try out in the classroom. It also helped my familiarization with the current GCSE curriculum, giving a whistle-stop tour of the main areas.
Following the course, I am planning to gain full accreditation but most importantly, I’m really looking forward to being able to apply my subject knowledge in the classroom.
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 (Rachel James) 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.
