    • “I signed up with OES in August 2020 with Jemma and Charlotte, and within a month they called to say they had got me a temporary position within a school that could lead to more regular/permanent work with TA tasks. As the weeks passed by they called and messaged me on a regular basis to check to see whether I was happy and offered their continued support keeping an eye open for other possible job positions. They made sure I was paid on time, sorted everything for me and were always there for any questions that needed answering. All I can say is the service I received was second to none and I wouldn’t hesitate if you are someone reliable who wants to work or get back into teaching. A totally professional company and a five star rating from me.”

    • “I have worked for OES for a number of years and have been very happy with the service I have received. Jemma and Charlotte genuinely care about their employees and try hard to match people to placements that will suit their skills and preferences. Communication is particularly impressive with any queries being responded to very quickly. Payment for work is always correct and prompt. Charlotte and Jemma ensure their staff are up to date with safeguarding training and they have also organised other free courses which have helped with my professional development. I have specific medical issues which means I need to work flexibly. OES has always supported me with this, allowing me to continue working in a job that I love.”

    • “On and off, I have worked as a supply teacher and also as a supply teaching assistant for OES for seven years. By far, OES has been the best supply agency I have ever worked for. Over this time, OES has been extremely efficient in every aspect of my employment, but perhaps more importantly, very approachable and understanding with regard to their employees. Charlotte and Jemma are always ready to listen to any concerns or recommendations and are helpful to the ninth degree. Factors crucial for a supply teacher in which OES has always been consistent; booking details are clear, communication is excellent, payment is prompt and importantly does not require any form filling. I can highly recommend OES to anyone looking for supply work in education.”

    • “OES was recommended to me by a colleague and from the outset, I have found them to be professional and very efficient. OES has appropriately matched my skills to each assignment and I am fully briefed prior to attending each school. I would recommend OES to anyone considering supply work as they can be assured they will be fully supported throughout.”

    • “Since my first contact with OES I have been very impressed by the way they really care and look after the teachers that work for their agency. They have always found me the appropriate work to fit my individual needs and I enjoy the variety of different types of schools they send me to. Jemma and Charlotte are always very professional and kind!”
      Julia

    • “Being a younger member of staff, often the youngest at the school, I frequently felt nervous about starting work in the teaching profession. Outstanding Education Solutions made me feel so comfortable, they treated me no different to any other staff member even though I was considerably younger, they truly are such a supportive team. I will be forever grateful for the opportunities that I have gained through OES.”

    • “OES is consistent in its endeavour to match the needs of its schools with the needs of its staff. Charlotte and Jemma are very approachable, very down-to-earth, no matter what the situation. Their high standards and great expectations mean that it is good to work for OES. Staff are always kept up-to-date with their safeguarding, and training is provided to ensure that staff are aware of relevant developments in education.”

      Julia
      Herefordshire Teaching Assistant
    • “Moving from full time teaching to supply I was unsure how it would go. I needn't have worried, OES made the transition very easy and my worries about having enough work to cover everything were groundless. The staff were always friendly and helpful, and I have encouraged a number of teaching friends to check them out. When the Covid situation hit they were immediately there for their teachers, something I know some supply organisations were not. I have needed quite a flexible pattern of work lately because of other commitments, OES has been completely supportive and I've never felt pressured into organising my life to suit them. I'm really glad I found them.”

    • “I recently moved back to the Hereford area and wanted to do some supply work to get to know the different schools in the surrounding area. Jemma and Charlotte have both been so helpful and great at getting me work in lovely schools which I’ve really enjoyed teaching in. They are both so understanding of your needs and preferences and take into consideration each role they fit you with.”

      Emma
      Herefordshire Primary School Teacher
    • “Jemma and Charlotte are lovely people to work for. Communication is excellent so you know exactly what is expected when work is allocated, and they take care of payment without the need for time sheets to be filled in at each school. They provide excellent training opportunities and keep you up to date with policy changes and such like. This year in particular, it has been very reassuring to have been kept informed of the many changes regarding Covid and to know they are at the end of the phone if you have an issue. I have worked with Jemma and Charlotte for several years now and am very happy to continue doing so.”

If I ever had any questions, Jemma and Charlotte were always available for a chat on the phone or over an email. I would highly recommend OES to anyone looking for supply work in Herefordshire.”

    • “When I retired from my permanent job, I decided that I’d like to keep up my interest in teaching with the flexibility of supply work and this has been brilliant! OES are very professional and also very friendly. I’ve had quite a few lovely assignments since I started supply work in the spring of 2019 and I’ve even made new friends in the process. I recommend OES wholeheartedly.”

      Carol
      Herefordshire Secondary School Teacher
    • “As an NQT, taking off my teacher trainee wheels was nerve wracking. However, since joining OES I have felt very supported, as they have taken the time to get to know me and placed me in posts that suited my preferences. Moreover, their professional service has a personal touch, which I believe you would struggle to find elsewhere. OES has already allowed me to gain a vast range of invaluable experiences and as a result of this, I have seen my confidence develop and grow as a new teacher.”

I would recommend them to anyone looking to join an agency in Herefordshire!”
      Alicia

OES are a professional, efficient well-organised agency covering school and out-of-school hours to ensure efficient administration and service to schools and teachers/ teaching assistants. They do their utmost to meet demand with supply. In my opinion, they are by far the best provider in the area and I highly recommend them.”
      Karen
      Herefordshire Secondary School Teacher
    • “I’ve been with OES for over a year now and have always received quality advise and support from the team in furthering my teaching experience and ensuring a multitude of teaching roles (including both long and short term posts). OES is a highly professional agency, whilst Charlotte and Jemma provide exceptional services to their clients. I have always found them both friendly and approachable when seeking advice. After returning from maternity leave, the team worked hard to ensure I had work that suited the days I was able to commit to. I would recommend OES to anyone looking to take a step into supply teaching.”
