To support National Supply Teacher Week, ITN Mark Education ran a competition to win an iPad Air asking Supply Teachers for their best supply teaching tips.  From a huge amount of impressive entries, Rachel Buchanan a Primary Supply Teacher from the Leeds office was chosen as the winner. Rachel, who has worked as an ITN Mark Supply Teacher since 2010, suggested a variety of tips to be featured in a forthcoming Supply Teaching Guide the agency is producing.  Rachel’s tips included how to dress, what to take with you when supply teaching and how to engage with children to best support their learning.  These tips, as well as those from other entries will be featured in the guide, which will be available to download from the ITN Mark website in a few weeks time. 

Alison Leaworthy, Senior Recruitment Consultant from ITN Mark’s Leeds office says: “We are delighted that Rachel has won this competition. Rachel is very artistic and has recently completed a Masters Degree in textile design. Throughout her study Rachel worked part-time for ITN Mark as a Primary Supply Teacher.  Rachel is a highly talented teacher who enjoys combining her love of art with her teaching.”

Rachel adds: “I am so delighted to have won this competition.  I really enjoy supply teaching and the opportunities it gives to teach different children in a variety of school settings. I hope my tips prove useful to other supply teachers”.

Roger Marsh, ITN Mark’s Managing Director adds: “Rachel’s tips for supply teaching were really impressive and demonstrated her truly professional nature. Rachel is a wonderful ambassador for ITN Mark and we are delighted to acknowledge this during National Supply Teacher week.”

Rachel works mainly in Catholic Schools across Leeds and Wakefield served by Leeds Diocese Supply Service (LDSS) in partnership with ITN Mark Education. LDSS provides high calibre staff for Catholic Primary Schools across West and North Yorkshire.
