At Rotherwood Teachers we work incredibly hard all year round to support our supply teachers throughout Lancashire, Yorkshire and Greater Manchester and we know that it is always good to step back from the hustle and bustle and take some time to show our appreciation for the brilliant job they do.
Supply teachers play a fundamental part in schools supporting education and to the future of children nationwide and, for that reason alone, Rotherwood Teachers do not underestimate the value of each and every one of our supply staff.
The Rotherwood Teachers team really understand our industry, the role that we play and our responsibilities as an agency. Of late there have been numerous challenges facing recruitment in education and we know that it is crucial to open our ears and really hear and understand the needs of each person who takes the time to register with us.
To ensure that we meet the requirements of each individual and deliver the best possible service to our teachers, as well as schools, we always provide a face-to-face consultation where we get to know the newest member of our team and answer any questions they may have so there are no surprises.
Connections we establish with our supply staff are nurtured throughout their time working with us. We are always there at the other end of the phone to lend an ear and each of our supply staff have their own dedicated consultant who can be contacted on their out-of-hours number to support them any time they require.
Rotherwood Teachers wholeheartedly back National Supply Teacher Week and we are delighted to be pledging our support for the first time in 2015! Throughout the week we will have raffles, competitions and bits of silliness for all of our supply staff to get involved in with a range of prizes and rewards on offer.
Our dedicated staff will be holding an open surgery for any member of the team, old or new, who feels like they would benefit from interview training. To make sure that we do this right our consultants have collated a range of information from the schools that we work with – some good examples and some bad! – so you know our advice is helpful and genuine.
As part of our continuing efforts to grow our network and get people sharing their advice, thoughts and experiences we are always available on Facebook and Twitter. Alongside Rotherwood Recruitment we host #RRHour on Twitter, a weekly Q&A and advice session every Monday 1230 – 1330, where anybody is encouraged to join the conversation.
