What our relief teachers say about working with us
I would strongly recommend EP for preschool work. Communication was excellent and I always felt as if I was treated as a professional and you had my back. I greatly appreciated the work at a variety of centres. It was super interesting to get an overview of ECE in Auckland.
I've worked for EP Education for a few months, and the team has been great. Incredibly supportive, and they never sacrifice quality of the services they provide, whilst always looking after the employees. Through EP Education I have connected with some great organisations, and I often hear very positive feedback. Thank you EP Education for your support!
Amazing place to work! I've been able to work at many different centers with many different communities and it's been an awesome experience. Plus, the staff are all super helpful and friendly. Very grateful for this opportunity.
My experience [working with ep.education] is I could experience different centres and different age groups through relief teaching. I like ep.education because I can show chose my preferred working time and day. It’s really awesome! If my friends are interested with ECE relief teaching, I would recommend ep to them.
I have worked with EP in various capacity for the last 6 years and I continue to be impressed by the professionalism and friendliness of EP staff. Working with EP gives you great experience and flexibility while earning a good coin. I recommend them wholeheartedly to anyone in need of a permanent or casual role. You will be well cared for and your needs will be their priority.
I love the efficient communication EP has. Maddie from EP is always quick at responding to emails and has helped me a lot while navigating working under level 3 and traffic light system! Worked for other agency before, but will definitely recommend EP for the first choice.
EP have been great in giving me advice on how to obtain my Teacher Reg, and they've helped speed up the process of getting me "work ready". Thanks heaps guys.
I am grateful to EP education for helping me out in the best possible way. I am so glad that I am associated with them. The team is incredibly supportive and responsive . I feel like I am being supported like a family. Hats off to you guys for doing a great job!
Great people to work with, friendly team, Zaf is very helpful and quick to reply to your emails. Highly recommend working with them.
I was really excited and ready to explore my experience. I hadn’t worked in a centre before and now I finally found this opportunity to share my skills and also to learn some new things. What I like about ep is the good communication. The team is very helpful and friendly. I recommend ep to my friends.
I have been working as a relief teacher for EP education for over a year now. I've had an excellent experience. The team are supportive, efficient and friendly, especially Zaf and Mary.
I have found the team at EP to be very supportive and understanding. EP has been able to find me weekly relief work in the ECE, Primary and Intermediate sectors. My relief experience I feel has continued to develop my own practice as an educator, which has given me more focus and drive on the next steps to getting back into the classroom full time.
In the time I have been with EP, the staff have always been friendly, professional and proactive. They have listened and accommodated the hours and days I wanted to work and what areas in Auckland I've wanted to work in. EP really value and look after their relievers.
EP is a professional company who helps teachers match their interest and availability for work. They have great cooperation with education services and they perform outstanding efficiency for communication with both education services and teachers. I quite enjoy working with them.
