"Key Education's approach is professional and honest; they are clued-in to the sector and are genuinely interested in our experiences as employees, offering support when required. They consistently provide appropriate work when it is available and I have recommended to a number of colleagues that should they ever need the flexibility of supply work, they would not be disappointed by the service Key Education delivers"– Supply teacher

"We have used Key Education for the last 5 years and I would recommend them to any school. They provide a highly reliable, efficient and professional service. They are always available to contact and are quick to respond. They have a bank of quality supply teachers across the age range and a good knowledge of their teachers’ strengths. They will also make the effort to find a teacher that meets the particular needs of our school, or even a particular class, rather than just sending the first available teacher"– Deputy Head
