Teacher Testimonials

What Supply Teachers say about Blackboard Recruitment:

  • “I first started with Blackboard Recruitment 14 years ago and have worked for the company intermittently since then. Davina and her team have built solid relationships with local schools over the years and have always provided me with a friendly and professional service. I have rarely been without work and would choose Blackboard Recruitment above any other agencies”
    Louise, Secondary Art and Primary teacher - Chellaston, Derby
  • “It is delightful hearing the dulcet tones of Davina or the joyous voice of Jo over the telephone when communicating with Blackboard. Being a small company one gets to know the voices. It’s a bit like a family. You know they will always do their best for you.”
    Mary, Nursery & Infant teacher - Church Gresley
  • “After leaving full time teaching, Blackboard Recruitment was the first agency that I joined. From the onset, Davina and Jo have been friendly, helpful, and approachable, providing me with work in a range of schools where I can use my experience and skill set most effectively. The agency works around your requirements and is flexible and accommodating. I have been very pleased with the professionalism of the company in terms of the communication and organisation and I would recommend Blackboard to anyone thinking of taking up supply teaching. Blackboard has made supply teaching a pleasurable alternative to working as a full time class based teacher.”
    Paul, Primary Teacher - Rolleston on Dove, Staffordshire
  • “Blackboard Recruitment has and always will be my go-to teacher supply agency, as all of the staff are enthusiastic, hardworking and have the teachers’ best interests at heart. They are very professional in their service and I have always enjoyed working for them. They strive to find work for the members of the agency and keep in regular contact to update us with work opportunities and ensure that all is well within the schools. I am very grateful for the opportunity to work with them.”
