SupplyMatch's Pledges of support and celebration for National Supply Teacher Week:
Every supply teacher who works for SupplyMatch Teachers will receive a personalised thank you to show our appreciation for their hard work. We want our supply teachers to know that WE KNOW they do a great job in our schools. We're not running competitions offering big prizes to the best teacher because all of our teachers are outstanding and deserve a little treat to remind them :-)
Have a cuppa with a supply teacher. In NSTW we will be visiting our schools with a goody box of coffee, tea, juice, mugs and biscuits for each staff room whilst encouraging interaction between supply staff and permanent staff. We will also have a SupplyMatch social in Durham with everyone invited!!! Friday 20th June 6pm onwards ALL WELCOME and (some) drinks are on Gail :-) We are also opening a closed forum where our staff can chat online to other supply teachers to seek support and share resources.
3. Provide information for new supply teachers
We are using SUPPLYBAG to offer our new recruits guidance and training as well as attending graduate fairs and advertising locally for those who are seeking a career in education. We are also going to publish a new handbook for our staff with more information on the mechanics of supply.
