ITN Mark Leeds Supply Teacher wins an iPad Air
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.
