I am absolutely thrilled with my experience at Engage Education, particularly with the outstanding support from Katie. After registering with them, I was pleasantly surprised when Katie promptly arranged an interview for me the very next day. Even better, the school she connected me with is conveniently located just a short 10-minute walk from my house, making it incredibly convenient for me as I continue working there full time. I am incredibly satisfied with Engage Education and its efficient services, and I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone seeking educational opportunities.

Katie from Engage was the one responsible for my registration steps, she was very thorough and precise with information and next steps. She listened to what I was looking for and ensured to point me to towards the different positions available with accordance to my unique and personal availability and preferences. She’s always on call and at hand whenever I am looking for answers or guidance. I would really recommend Engage, especially working with Katie!
Klaudia M
This has been a very good experience for me, the agency are easy to work with, especially William McCool who has been very efficient in getting me registered and organising my assignments.
Kelly Hernández G.
I am very thankful for Engage Education specially for Bhupesh. I came from Spain 4 years ago and after working with some agencies I can see the difference between Bhupesh and other people from other agencies. While (in my expierence) in the agencies where I have been working for trated me just like a product, Bhupesh has involved himself (night and day time) in me.After all this time I can say: Thank you Pesh for finding me a permanent job, for treating me like a person and more than that for looking after of me so well.
Toby G.
extremely happy with engage education, in particular Katie, who has helped me get a job close by which i am extremely happy with. Furthermore engage have been great with answering any questions and walking me through the process.
Katie is an absolute diamond! She has made my transition back into supply work so smooth since having left in 2019 after having both my children. She’s always supportive and more importantly I feel like I can message or call her about anything work related, no matter how trivial. Thanks again for all your support Katie, you’re a true asset to Engage Education!
Engage Education is by far the best teacher recruitment agency I have ever worked with. My consultant is Katie Celaschi who has been incredible to work with and whos professional knowledge I highly repect. Katie has really understood my professional needs, goals and aspirations and she has gone above and beyond to find the right opportunities that interest me in the long run. I have worked with Katie for 4 months so far and she has always been approachable, transparent, informative, enthusiastic, compassionate and most of all supportive. Katie worked with her colleagues, Bridget, Amber and Joel to secure me a long term position for cover and a long term science position in a secondary school ideal for me! I will be staying in contact with Katie throughout my career as her support has established a long term professional connection I definitely value! I highly recommend Engage Education to any other teacher / school provider as their goal is really to provide long term educational service! Sabena K
