You’re in good company

Our ability to bring children, families and schools the support they need relies on the relationships and connections we make. Here’s a sample of the feedback we’ve had from people who have called on Plymouth Learning Partnership’s services.

"Our PLP SALT is invaluable to us. She is brilliant at supporting us in providing advice and strategies to support early SAL need, often eliminating the need for support later on. She is also flexible in the use of her time and has provided assessments and advice for older children, enabling us to identify and support needs for these children."

"I'd like to take the chance to thank the Supply+ team for supporting me through this stage of my career - I have been so much happier being back in schools and I have been able to do that because of the opportunity that Supply+ gave me."

I have worked for Supply Plus since 2016, 7 years, and I would highly recommend this company. The staff have always been professional, caring and supportive. They are always polite and friendly and very importantly keep you informed of events. It has been a pleasure to work for Supply Plus, they are a wonderful team to work for.

“It has given me the opportunity to reach children and families who may never have been able to access therapy or support in the way that we give. It has allowed me to work with a variety of people and explore my practise over the years, enabling me to become the practitioner I am..”

"I started working for PLP as a placement student and fell in love with not only the work but also the team and the values that underpin everything. I was later hired after finishing my degree and haven't looked back since. I work daily with children providing varying support and I utilise having a multi-disciplinary to help me tailor session to meet student needs. I feel valued and appreciated by PLP and could not imagine myself working elsewhere.”

"We have used the Health and Safety service from PLP for a number of years and I cannot recommend their service enough. They provide accurate and timely health and safety advice, with an understanding of the challenges faced by schools. They have helped me to save money by avoiding unnecessary expenditure or recommending contractors offering value for money on their services. Easily accessible by email and mobile phone, they have certainly been on hand to help out in a crisis too."

“PLP workers are flexible & try to meet the needs of child/home/school. They are the only support in the city who are actually proactive & help rather than have long waiting lists. We pay for additional high need & it's a worry for the future if school cannot meet this cost. The demand for support from PLP is ongoing & rising! We simply cannot do without them..”

We are very appreciative for the many years of care, support, professionalism and insight that Plymouth Learning Partnership (PLP) has been able to offer our school. Their expertise in the field of Safety & Health is second to none. From asbestos to zonal fire issues, PLP visiting consultants are extremely knowledgeable and are able to offer advice on a wide range of issues to ensure compliance. Just ask a question and they always have the answers you need! In addition, they are able to offer training across many subject areas, either online or in person, fulfilling all our school CPD needs. PLP are providers of a friendly, professional and valued partnership and I would highly recommend using their services.
