I came out of a full-time teaching position, as I felt at the time I wanted a change of direction. I signed up with GSL to initially keep me ticking over financially. However, Sheldon listened to my reasoning for leaving teaching and explored and found me other non-teaching temporary positions so I was able to experience other roles in education. As a result of experiencing different schools and different roles I soon realised that I very much wanted to stay in education, and continue doing what I love – teach! Due to circumstances, I did a long-term supply position for another organisation, however Sheldon kept in touch and frequently kept me updated about positions that were coming up once my contract had finished. He is very proactive in finding work for his (clients/ customers?) and works very hard in ensuring that he matches the strengths of the teacher appropriately with the right kind of school. As a result, the schools I have worked at have been pleased, one of the schools did invite me back a couple of terms after the initial job had finished where I was then offered a permanent contract. I love the school I am working at, and have realised that much of this was down to Sheldon’s persistence in wanting me to experience different schools/ roles. I would highly recommend, without hesitation GSL to any teacher, school, friends and colleagues.
