We are thrilled at the success of National Supply Teacher Week.
Across our Protocol Education branches we celebrated our supply teachers: many teachers dropped into our head office for a chat and chocolate; some took the opportunity to attend our free training sessions; while others received a surprise visit from their consultant while at work.
We are continuing to receive shocked and delighted messages from our winners of our Everyday Hero Awards. While there are too many people to mention here we can give you a glimpse into why they have been awarded:
· “David has been a dedicated and hard-working member of supply staff who has tended to be efficient, not shying in the face of challenging behaviour and subjects.”
· “Schools love the way Helen gets involved with all aspects of her role no matter how long she is there.”
· “Fantastic feedback, professional, approachable, Lucy will go anywhere for us and is always asked for.”
We hope all our supply teachers and support workers feel respected, appreciated and admired for the important part they play in a child’s education.
Just because the week is over doesn’t mean the recognition for supply teachers and support workers should cease. Remember there is no need there is no need to feel alone as a supply teacher with Protocol Education. Take a moment to read the experiences of others with our blogs covering a range of topics (especially those relevant to a daily supply teacher), attend some of our regular social events, and join our active social media community on Twitter, and Facebook.
We look forward to supporting National Supply Teacher Week in June 2015.
