PK education is proud to be supporting National Supply Teacher Week for a second year.
With a growing shortage of teachers, PK education recognises that quality supply teachers play a vital role in ensuring our children’s education is continuous and of a high standard.
To celebrate all the hard work Supply Teachers do, PK education is excited to announce its brand new Supply Teacher Awards, recognising and rewarding the very best Supply Teachers working in schools throughout the north of England, the Midlands and the North West.
15 outstanding Supply Teachers have been shortlisted across PK education’s five offices (Newcastle, Sheffield, Nottingham, Birmingham and Manchester) and voting is now open to find the winner of each office’s award.
The five winners will be announced on Thursday 18 June during National Supply Teacher Week, when PK education hosts #TakeoverThursday on the Supply Teacher Network Facebook page.
The awards will highlight the outstanding work of our Supply Teachers and recognise those who go above and beyond. The winner in each region will be presented with their own award and a very special gift to mark our appreciation of their efforts and to show their work does not go unnoticed.
Supply Teachers play a valuable and important part in the modern education system and are a crucial resource for schools. We pledge to support National Supply Teacher Week by:
During #TakeoverThursday PK will not only announce the winners of the PK education Supply Teacher Awards but celebrate Supply Teachers everywhere! On Thursday 18 June PK will be encouraging supply teachers to share best practice and there will be some fantastic giveaways throughout the day.
During National Supply Teacher Week and beyond, PK education’s pledge to supply teachers is:
· To remain in regular contact and offering an open door policy for all teachers who are registered with us. We know that the world of supply can feel isolating at times but we want to minimise these feelings and ensure our teachers are happy in their roles.
· Raise awareness of the skills needed to be a supply teacher beyond teaching qualifications. PK recognises that teaching is constantly changing. That’s why additional training is regularly provided to candidates to ensure they continue to be a valued addition to schools.
· Recognise every teacher as an individual. We will ensure the schools and roles meet the goals and aspirations of our registered teachers, matching candidates with the right job for them to ensure they are happy and fulfilled in their profession.
