For the most part it has been a very good experience. Work is rarely lacking, and I am well supported by my consultant.

Pros

Consultants are always there to help you when you need, and make themselves available to you when necessary; a range of schools contacts means there are multiple opportunities to work in different environments across London; many resources available on their website to help with your teaching career also.

Cons

I wish the pay scale matched those of other agencies who pay slightly more, however it is still good; wish there was some holiday pay after working X amount of weeks in one school, even if it is at a reduced rate - it just means you're not left without any earnings during the holidays when you're not working because the schools have closed - especially if you have worked so hard (teaching is not an easy job after all.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase the pay scale, particularly for those who are qualified teachers.

    Pros

    usually fair with disciplinary matters, but often not willing to reward initiative unless very high end cost analysis can be submitted with proposal.

    Cons

    appraisals are not often conducted fairly and scores often not calculated according to written material, automated systems used to create final score does not often match written material. pay scales are often negotiated on a like for like basis in small departments and thus pay inequalities are rife.

    Pros

    CER offers a huge amount of training, your manager, Regional Manager and senior consultants really take an intereste in developing you and your desk.
    There is a week's induction which is challenging and helps you hit the ground running.
    Capita is a huge name in the education market so it's very easy to get your foot in the door with clients.
    The managers 'walk their talk' - they run desks as well as managing a team which means they understand the challenges you're facing.
    The calibre of staff at CER is high so you get to work with first rate consultants who like to work hard and play hard.
    Capita teaches you how to be the best at what you do and offers career progression - the MD started as a consultant!

    Cons

    Capita have very high expectations of their staff and certainly work them harder than other agencies I've worked for.
    Capita is huge corporate group so you need to be happy in that sort of atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Excellent training available.
