Client testimonials

Envision Education are committed to a culture of continuous improvement and we strive to ensure we are providing the best possible service to our schools.

Below is a fantastic testimonial we received from a Special Needs School.

The need to recruit and retain good quality LSAs and RCWs has been a significant priority for the SLT. Since starting at the school, the number of agencies I work with has doubled and I am currently working with approximately twenty agencies. Staff who were responsible for recruitment before I started at RLS had established positive working relationships with the staff at Envision Education and this has continued during my time at the school.

My main contact at Envision Education has been Balraj. I have found him to be exceptionally supportive and attentive to our recruitment needs. Balraj makes contact regularly to ensure that his understanding of our needs is clear and, as a result, a real partnership has been established between the school and Envision. We speak on the phone and e-mail each other on a daily basis – sometimes several times a day when the need arises.

Balraj and his team have worked exceptionally hard to provide good quality LSA candidates whether for temporary placement or temp to perm placements and, as a result, we have several LSAs from Envision Education currently working at the school. Almost from the word go and
consistently, we have been placing more Envision Education LSAs than any other agency.

The quality of the LSAs provided is very good. On the rare occasion where a placement may not have worked out or a candidate may not have been successful at interview, the team have always listened to the feedback on the reason why to ensure that the issues raised can be taken into account in the future.

Envision Education have often helped us out at short notice. As a result, they have been included in the short list of agencies I contact when emergencies arise. When staff are sick or need days off, Envision Education finds replacement LSAs for us. Not all agencies I work with do this.

Reliability, professionalism and quality are three words that I would use to describe Balraj and his team. I recommend Envision Education to you without hesitation.

I found out about Envision Education after looking for recruitment agencies in and around Hounslow on Google. Ravi picked up and the rest was history.

Throughout our time working with Envision Education, they have provided us with cover teachers, teaching assistants and school admin staff. They have been able to fill many day to day and supply roles up until now.

Their candidates are flexible and able to adapt to the environment they are placed in. Additionally, they are very respectful and compliant with the rules and procedures we have in our school.

Envision Education provide a very important service. Our school would not be able to operate effectively had we not been with Envision Education. Schools are changing landscapes and cover issues can arise at any time. Having a service that understands this and is able to support us is invaluable.

I would definitely recommend Envision Education to independent schools like ours.

Ravi has been my point of contact and has been instrumental in supporting me to organize my staffing week in week out. Her experience alongside her forward planning, organization and diligence are first class. Keep up the excellent work!

Envision was recommended to us by a local Hertfordshire school, they told us that all dealings with this agency were positive and they weren’t wrong! From my first contact with Envision, in the pursuit of suitable staffing, everything has been smooth sailing. Although we are a primary school the level of service Envision supply would of great service to any school.

They are in regular contact to see if we need further support, they always answer calls promptly and return call when needed.

They have supplied us with long term and short term support staff, offering trial days to ensure candidates are suitable for our needs. Always suppling full safeguarding check.

Time sheet authorization is an easy process via an email, and invoicing is always prompt.

We have been very lucky to have Chloe Skipper at our main contact at Envision, I feel that we have built up a good relationship with her and she completely understands the need of our very small school.

Chloe keeps in regular contact to ensure her placements are still meeting the high standards that they expect.

Chloe is a positive, friendly and understanding member of their team, thank you for all of the support you show Puller Memorial Primary School.

We have used Envision Education to support our staffing needs over the last few years. It was October 2020 when Balraj first emailed over potential candidates. As a SEN school with pupils with severe learning difficulties it is essential for us that any agency sources the right candidates for us with the right skills and characteristics to work in this type of school.  

In the last year Envision has become our ‘go to’ agency sourcing the majority of candidates. We have an excellent relationship with Chloe Skipper, Sales Team Leader, who has supported us with up to 7 agency staff at any one time. Chloe has made it a priority to get to know our school and has visited for a tour to see first hand the nature and needs of our students and to specifically understand our requirements for candidates to be successful and become an integral part of our class teams.

Envision has supplied us with support staff for day to day and long term placements. Now that the agency knows what calibre of candidates we require and the essential characteristics for our partnership to be successful, there is a level of trust that the staff now being sent have already been through quite a rigorous vetting process.

Chloe is a great communicator and keeps us fully informed by email and phone as to all the relevant details about new and existing candidates. We now have Envision candidates working in our school who it would be difficult for the outsider to identify and we seek to train those staff and make them feel part of the teams as soon as possible.

We are seeking to develop our partnership with Envision as we seek as many other schools in the area to recruit and retain good and qualified staff during our periods of expansion. I would highly recommend Envision Education to SEN schools that are looking for a prompt, efficient service that listens to its partners in order that schools can best meet the needs of their learners in this difficult period of recruitment and retention.

When I first came into my role, Envision Education were one of the contacts that we used. It was when Preeti became our main contact that Envision Education became more of a partnership, where they learnt more about our pupils and team.

Envision Education have supported us by constantly liaising, discussing feedback and ensuring they are always up-to-date with our pupil’s needs and staff requirements.

We have a varied range of roles on a day-to-day basis and Envision Education are currently fantastic in meeting these needs.

The caliber of candidates they supply us with are a great fit for the needs of our pupil’s. We are always discussing feedback, ensuring candidates are aware of why they may not be a great fit for our school. With this, Envision are able to adapt for our future needs.

The speed of service has been fantastic and they have had a positive impact on our school ensuring their candidates are suitable and meet the needs of the students whilst working well with our permanent staff.

Preeti has been fantastic and is always working closely with her team to ensure they are offering the same amazing service.

We are a school within a SEN trust and would highly recommend Envision Education to others!

Special Needs School in West London

We first started working with Envision Education when we needed support in filling a vacancy. Arslan managed to help us fill it and since then has supported us with vacancies. He successfully recruited for a challenging LSA role. The staff member he sent joined us for 3 days on supply before we took them on our payroll.

To date we have used Envision Education to fill a permanent role. The candidate supplied had excellent experience and was able to quickly adapt to the specialist role.

Envision Education are extremely polite. Their service and communication is fast-paced.

The member of staff made a very positive impact on the school, particularly on our students, supporting their needs in a professional and competent manner.

Throughout my time working with them, Arslan has been my main point of contact and has been great. He recently visited our school to introduce himself in person and provide us with an explanation into his approach for helping us fill our vacancies.

I would definitely recommend Envision Education to other secondary schools looking for support with their staffing.

Secondary School in Slough

During the February half term break I received an email from Envision Education introducing an LSA.

This email came just at the right time as we had been desperately looking for LSAs since January. I contacted the agency by email and Amanda emailed me back within the hour.

During the half term break Amanda and I emailed a number of times to organise trial days for the first week back. Amanda was extremely organised and responded to emails very quickly, sending me other CVs to look at and organising interviews and trial days.

We now have 3 LSAs from Envision Education on long term supply with the aim of them joining our team permanently in September. The candidates are excellent! All three work extremely hard and have adapted well to our needs.

Amanda listened to our list of needs and matched candidates to us quickly and successfully. I have been very impressed by the speed in which Amanda has found LSAs for us and how easy it has been to work with her. It has certainly taken away some of the stress of finding staff!

Primary School in Bucks

We have been working with Envision for a long time now and have always had a good relationship with them.

Christina and her team are always available to help us with our needs from urgent daily cover to long term / permanent Teaching Assistants.

The calibre of candidates they send is always very good and we have often gone on to offer permanent positions with ourselves.

Christina has taken the time to come and visit our school and spend time with our children to get a better understanding of what we look for.

I look forward to continuing and building on the relationship we have with Christina and Envision.
