Williamstown Primary School have had a three year association with Tradewind. We have been delighted by the high calibre of CRTs that the agency provides. They are always punctual, professional and very flexible. We have been able to employ a number of candidates on short term contracts and they have been nothing short of excellent. We look forward to continuing our work with Tradewind in years to come.- S. Montgomery, Assistant Principal, Williamstown Primary School

Willmott Park Primary has been using Tradewind for quite a few years now. The management staff are very good and go out of their way to support schools, find appropriate replacements, following up on whether Casual Relief Teachers has arrived, if their punctual etc.

The teaching staff have been very good, and their system of allocating a group of staff to our school has made my life significantly easier as they are aware of the way our school operates and the location of all rooms.

Overall an experience I would happily recommend to other schools.- B. Carmichael, Assistant Principal, Willmott Park Primary School

My task as operations coordinator has been made so much less stressful through taking advantage of Tradewind’s CRT services. I don’t have to worry if a teacher rings in sick because all I have to do is call Tradewind and within a short time a text message comes back notifying me who is coming to fill the position for the day. My confidence in their services has been boosted by the fact that the CRTs that come from Tradewind are competent teachers who do a great job. I have been very pleased with Tradewind’s services.- B.
