Here at Protocol Education we believe that supply teachers and support workers should be RESPECTED, APPRECIATED and ADMIRED for the important part they play in a child’s education. We also know that although Supply Teaching is an excellent way to make valuable connections, gain experience and further your career, it can sometimes feel a little bit isolating.
We value the hard work you do and to prove it, here is what we are did for YOU during National Supply Teacher Week:
The prizes were wrapped, branch nominations were sent in and Protocol Education was ready for the first ever National Supply Teacher Week.
Outstanding daily candidates from across the company won an “Everyday Hero Award” and some great prizes. One was announced every day and believe me, the competition was stiff!
12 of London’s top long-term candidates were invited to TCR on the Thursday evening to enjoy a free massage or treatment on us.
Our first winner was Nicola Nel. Read what she loves about supply teaching.
The regional branches got into the spirit - Bristol took the initiative and got their schools involved, asking their contacts to decide which of their supply staff should be nominated, Leicester held a drinks event to celebrate with their candidates (photos below!) and Newcastle took their long-terms to lunch!
Delicious cupcakes were on offer too - made by our lovely payroll manager Sam.
It’s the week of the year that we get to give back to the people who make our jobs a little bit easier by going the extra mile (often literally!) and we didn't hold back...
