Link Education has always provided this school with an excellent service over the years by sending us a high caliber of Supply staff and, when you haven't had one that suited our needs, you've been honest about it and told us in good time. You are always calm and efficient at the other end of the phone when we call first thing in the morning. Your help and guidance over the years has been invaluable and very much appreciated. Link is always the first agency I call for our Supply needs and will continue to do so due the efficiency and friendliness of all the staff there.
