We have used the services of Link Education for several years now. The agency deliver a very high quality of service and the teachers supplied have been of high standard too. They provide a very prompt service and listen to the request carefully so that teachers are well matched to the class group needing cover. Link Education has a good bank of teachers to work with our Special Needs children. Knowing that I can pick up the phone and a good quality teacher will arrive at school on a Monday morning certainly takes at least one pressure off my shoulders. I have no hesitation in recommending Link Education to another school. They are a life line for today's hectic school life.
