Show Your Support

If you'd like to be involved with National Supply Teacher Week, but aren't quite sure how to

go about it, here are a few great ideas.

Keen to be involved? Here are a few ideas:

Each day during the week, present one of your supply teachers with chocolates or flowers;

Write an open letter (poem?) of support or appreciation for your supply teachers;

Host a coffee and cake evening in your offices / the local night-time café;

Issue a statement about how you intend to support your supply teachers in the coming year;

Arrange to visit a local college to talk about being a supply teacher to student teachers;

Encourage your client schools to participate in showing their appreciation for your supply teachers (appropriate guidance here);

Enable a compliments and complaints amnesty for supply teachers about their schools, and your service. A place to direct frustrations, other than at their family!


Please consider that the above provides excellent PR opportunities for your agency.


If you intend to carry out any of these suggestions, or indeed any other activity to support your supply teachers during National Supply Teacher Week and the year ahead, then please do let us know by email as soon as possible: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., attach a file with your logo and we will create a page to celebrate your intentions on the official website. During the week, send us news, photos and achievements and we will add them to your page each day.


Many thanks for your time, and we look forward to working with you
