Candidate Case Studies and Testimonials

Classic Education gave me a chance when other Recruitment Companies didn´t even reply. I talked to them on the telephone and the following day I was invited in for registration. Within a week I had my first interview and I got the job on a supply basis initially at Arnhem Wharf Primary school with a very nice comment from the Deputy Head teacher-"Classic Education always send us excellent people". Seven months later a permanent job came up in the school and now I´m on a full time contract feeling very grateful for all the help and support I had from Classic Education

Tatiana - Primary Teaching Assistant. Tower Hamlets

I recently returned from South Korea where I was teaching English as a foreign language. On returning to the UK I decided that I wanted to become a teacher.

I found that it was a very competitive area and that my experience of teaching abroad was not enough to get me onto a School Direct Programme or a PGCE. Therefore, I decided to look for a Teaching Assistant job to increase my knowledge of teaching in the UK.

I came across Classic Education through my search and after my meeting I was quickly placed in a Lambeth Secondary School.

I am now starting my second term and I love every minute of it. The school I am at is very supportive and is a fantastic place to work. I have applied to do my PGCE and will hopefully start next year.

At my school I am currently working with the year 9's. I work with a particular class and go to every lesson with them. They all have different learning and emotional needs and I help them throughout their school day, whether it be with their spelling, reading, writing, numeracy, or just being there to say well done.

I also taking extra curriculum sessions with the key stage 3 boys, where I run a rugby training session every week and take teams to competitions (which we have been quite successful).

It is a great opportunity to get some real classroom experience which will give you a huge amount of credit when it comes to applying for your School Direct/PGCE in the future.

I highly recommend working with Classic Education if you want to get your teaching career up and running.

Kieran - Secondary Learning Support Assistant - Lambeth

Having graduated from a red brick university with a 2:1 in Humanities, I wanted a job with a difference - something which challenged and inspired me, where every day was different. It may sound as if I've plagiarized buzz words from a PGCE handbook, but working in a school is precisely that: challenging, inspiring and varied. Having joined a number of spectacularly unhelpful agencies and been refused from many others because of my complete lack of experience, I finally registered with Classic Education. They were helpful, efficient and sympathetic, listening to my requirements and coming up with an action plan. Within weeks of my CRB being processed I went in for an interview and was offered a job as a TA in a year two class. The school I'm working in is fantastic: supportive, friendly and with excellent systems and values. I've never enjoyed a job more and have applied for PGCEs next year. If you are over-educated, under-experienced and over-enthusiastic I would definitely recommend Classic Education.
