What our candidates say…


“Probably the best agency I’ve worked for. I have been on placements everyday. I’ve been on 2 longer term placements since joining over the 6 weeks holidays and bounced to different schools to get more experience as unqualified TA. It has given me the confidence that this is what I want to do as a career and given me the experience of which types schools I prefer. My agent Joe always checks in and always answers his phone if I have any concerns.”



– Rebecca, Teaching Assistant with CER

“Fantastic agency to work for. I have been working with CER for about 5 years now, and Phil, my consultant, has been amazing. He’s very friendly and really supportive and understanding of my personal circumstances. The weekly pay is ideal, and I have never had any issues when it comes to getting paid. Best agency I have been with. I would recommend CER to friends and family.”
