National Supply Teacher Week
16th - 20th June 2014
Celebrating Supply Teachers
During this very special week, we aim to spread the love for supply teachers! They are to schools what a certain breakdown organisation is to motorists - the fourth emergency service, after all!
Aims of the week are as follows:
- To highlight the importance of supply teachers in a child’s education
- To increase respect for supply teachers
- To show appreciation for those working as supply teachers
- To help combat the recurring feeling amongst supply teachers of isolation
- To support supply teachers with their professional development
- To provide information for those considering supply teaching as a career move
- To increase awareness of the skills needed to be a supply teacher
- To help schools work with supply teachers more effectively
