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.
“It fills me with pride to work for PLP. It is very special to work for a multidisciplinary team that is comprised of exceptionally genuine and compassionate people.”
“MAST are amazing. All of the staff are resourceful, compassionate and hardworking. Everyone is committed to find a creative way to remove barriers and support children and their families to move forwards. I would not be able to do my job without the support, expertise and advice that the MAST team provide. They are always there when we need them the most.”
“PLP give my school access to incredible, hard-working, knowledgeable and caring experts in education. The impact we see in Speech and Language and through workshops and CPD is considerable. The support PLP, especially MAST, gives us is inspiring - and vital to us providing the high quality provision we know our children and families deserve. Everyone is friendly and wants to help. It is a pleasure to do business with PLP and its different subdivisions..”
"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."
"Thank you all for making my time with Supply+ so enjoyable. From the beginning the Supply+ team have been incredibly helpful alongside their excellent and frequent communication. I will happily recommend Supply+ to anyone I know going into supply work."
"PLP MAST is central to my professional world. The team are always there, available, to provide the support and early help that is essential and required for our families and their children to survive and learn to thrive. Support for staff and colleagues has been invaluable in terms of CPD, professional advice, supervision and the under specific circumstances."
Supply+ has been a great organisation to work with! The team are always friendly and helpful, and communication is good. The calendar system on the database works really well and there has always been work when I wanted it with age groups and in areas that suit me. I have enjoyed going into a range of different schools in Plymouth and have found it a supportive way of getting back into the classroom after a break.
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.
"PLP is an inclusive company, which thrives on a supportive network of professionals within the team. They are compassionate and understanding."
“PLP have been really supportive towards the huge variety of challenging needs that we face within our school. There is always somebody available to talk to at the end of the phone and no question is too trivial..”
“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..”
"From my first days over 10 years ago as one of 4 PAPH members, I have enjoyed the challenges and rewards. Being part of a team that was innovative in a fast-moving environment made each day, week, month, and year feel different, but the end goal was always to support and be there for our schools. I take pride in my work and am proud to be part of PLP."
"I am thankful to have the opportunity to have such a proactive, compassionate service who are there to support and educate me within my role, whilst also expanding high-quality support and intervention for school staff, pupils and parents/families. I wouldn't be without PLP! "
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working with Supply Plus. The sign-up process and online booking system are well organised, and I have found it fantastic for helping to organise my days with ease. Supply Plus staff have always answered the phone and replied to emails almost instantly and have aided with any issues I may have. I have had the most amazing experiences in multiple schools around Plymouth and thank the Supply Plus team for giving me these opportunities. I really hope to work with Supply Plus again in the future.
"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."
