At Connex Education we truly appreciate the resilience, enthusiasm and passion that our supply teachers, TAs, Nursery Nurses and Cover Supervisors show every day and we strongly believe that all supply teaching staff deserve recognition and praise for all their hard work. This is why we are very proud to be supporting National Supply Teacher Week for the second year in a row.
As a supply teaching agency one of our main aims is to help schools work with supply teachers more effectively and we strive to match the needs of both our clients and candidates at all times. Every time we get a booking, our team of consultants ensure they have all the relevant information in order to find the right member of staff for the school.
Providing work suitable to the needs of our Teachers and other teaching staff is very important to us as well; because of this, if a candidate requires to work within a specific Key Stage or in a particular area we make sure to get them assignments that meet their requirements.
At Connex we are more than happy to provide information about supply teaching, its benefits and what can be expected from working on supply. We offer a variety of literature containing relevant information about supply teaching to anyone that might request it; this literature can also be obtained at one of the University Open Days or Career Fairs that we attend. Furthermore, we have created a Connex blog which is available on our website and social media networks and that is updated on a regular basis with the aim of providing tips and advice not only to Teachers, NQTs and TAs but also to people that might be considering supply teaching as a career move.
This year, in celebration of National Supply Teacher Week, the Connex team will be launching a campaign with the aim of highlighting the importance of supply teachers within schools. This campaign will aim to encourage people to show appreciation to supply staff and vital role they play in the education sector and pupil attainment and development.
We will also be posting an appreciation article dedicated to all supply teachers on our website which will appear on our social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+.
Last but not least, the name of every Connex supply teacher will be entered into a draw with the chance to win a selection of prizes.
