Teacher Testimonials

My experience of working for YHT has been very positive. Despite never meeting the majority of the team, and only having met yourself once, I feel that you manage to maintain a personal feel to the business and I personally feel that you are interested in your clients’ wellbeing and success. I have been surprised at how much work there is and I feel that even though there is at times great demand, you act in a understanding and generous manner.  I have found that communication has been very good and confirmation of assignments is always clear. I have enjoyed my placements and have felt in each one accepted and part of the team.  Thank you very much.

I have been working in North Yorkshire with a few different supply teaching agencies for nearly a year now. YHTA are the most professional by far! They always respond to your emails and calls whatever your query or request may be, as well as keeping you up to date with any news. You are told how to get there; and whenever possible, which class you will be working in and whether you will need planning… and you can guarantee that the information you have been given will be correct. I would recommend working with this agency to anyone who is looking to work on a supply basis in happy, successful and friendly schools.

I love working for YHTA – regular work at wonderful schools, always polite and personal calls from agency staff! To everyone at YHTA for all the work you have arranged for me this year – it has been a wonderful experience – THANKYOU!!

It has been great having the opportunities to teach in different settings, and I’m very grateful to have worked for such lovely and professional people! I will definitely recommend you to others, and will remember you if I need to return to supply work.

You’re an efficient agency with good relationships with your schools. The other thing I would add about the rewards of the job when we go that extra mile and build our own relationships with the schools and the children we teach.

Always put you first, great to work within such a close knit ‘family’ team. You feel like you’re getting a really personalised service-you meet the needs of your practitioners and take into account their preferences. Cover lots of really good schools -people always ask ‘are you with YHTA?’ Because you have built up good strong relationships with schools, thus the teachers have good faith in you.

Thanks so much for the great assignments I had with you – they were in such lovely schools and really helped me to get back on my feet and gain some experience which has definitely stood me in good stead.  If I find myself looking for supply assignments again I will be back in touch – and will also certainly recommend you as an agency.

Christine R (teacher)


I have been lucky enough to secure a permanent position for September, so all being well I will not be looking for supply work in the near future. Should the situation change I will certainly be in touch, as most schools I have visited in my area to date have mentioned yourselves as the main agency they use.

I’ve worked with YHTA for two years as an NQT and can honestly say they’ve been brilliant to work for. They’ve provided me not only with short term supply but with regular longer term appointments and when I needed more hours they really stepped up to get me them, and have continued to do so. Lorraine and Bob have always been lovely on the phone and done their very best to make sure that I am happy with the schools I am sent to and active in getting me back to them. They have also been really understanding if I haven’t been able to make an assignment and made me feel comfortable. I recommend other’s to use YHTA as they are a friendly staff, committed to both the schools and the teachers that work for them. I want to thank everyone for two great years and wish them all the best in the future.
