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.
Many thanks for your time, and we look forward to working with you
The Supply Teacher team
