Congratulations to Elaine Nieva from the West London office of ITN Mark Education – winner of our National Supply Teacher Award 2013. It was a close call, but the nomination from her school really impressed the ITN Mark Directors and enabled her to clinch the title.

Celebrating National Supply Teacher Week 17th – 21st June 2013
Premier Education was delighted to support the first annual National Supply Teacher week and everyone at Premier was involved in activities to celebrate and reward our hard working supply teachers and support staff.
To support National Supply Teacher Week, we rewarded individuals who have gone the extra mile by delivering and presenting our Annual ‘Teacher of The Year’ awards. Our offices were also ‘open’ to all registered supply teachers and support staff to drop in and join us for coffee and Alistair’s famous chocolate cookies on Friday 22nd June.
National Supply Teacher Week is a fantastic initiative that SANZA Teaching Agency is very proud to support. Supply Teachers (and support staff!) are the lifeblood of our business and the unsung heroes of education. SANZA was actually established back in 1999 by a group of mates who were working in London as daily supply teachers. One of those teachers is still our CEO today, so our feet remain firmly on the ground and in tune with the needs of Supply Teachers. Supply Teaching is at the very heart of our DNA and we’ll always do our best for all educators we work with.
To support National Supply Teacher Week, we rewarded individual supply teachers who have gone the extra mile and we also thanked all of our hard-working teachers with our very own National Supply Teacher Week Party and awards night, which was a great opportunity for our candidates to socialise with consultants and fellow educators alike.
The London Supply specialists celebrating in London on the Friday. Awards were presented and consultants socialised with some of our hard working teachers. We provided some free well-earned refreshments as well to help celebrate National Supply Teacher Week with consultants taking the opportunity to socialise with and thank supply teachers they work with.
The Education Network was originally founded by Teachers and has always advocated that Supply Teachers deserve recognition.
The majority of children in the UK will at some time be taught by a Supply Teacher and without the valuable support of Supply Teachers children’s education would suffer.
To be a Supply Teacher is not an easy job and you need to be flexible, adaptable and at times have a good sense of humour.
The Education Network was delighted to support the first annual National Supply Week which highlighted the positive impact that Supply Teachers have and helped them gain the respect they should be accorded for the professionals they are.

Tradewind Recruitment was thrilled to be involved in supporting the inaugural National Supply Teacher Week. All of our offices (London, Birmingham & Manchester) got on board to acknowledge, celebrate and reward our hard working educators.
In celebration of National Supply Teacher Week, Tradewind established special awards to recognise the hard work of supply staff. We visited educators on-the-job to present rewards and highlight the hard work that they do. Our partner-schools also nominated their favourite teachers for ‘School’s Choice’ awards so that educators who put in the hard graft received the recognition they deserve. Awards and prizes are all well and good, but at Tradewind we enjoy a bit of a party as much as anyone and so all of our offices hosted get-togethers to celebrate our educators and thank them for their tireless efforts.
Birmingham celebrated with a teacher get together on the Thursday and the Manchester & London offices marked the occasion on Friday night. Across all three offices, over 15 teachers have been recognised with Awards and prizes to recognise their excellence as supply teachers and to show thanks for the hard work that they do. Awards have included the ‘Schools’ Choice Award’ , which has been well-supported by our partner schools who have happily nominated their favourite supply teachers to receive recognition and awards. Other awards being presented to worthy winners are our ‘Outstanding Service Award’ for those supply teachers who always go the extra mile and also our ‘Consultants’ Choice Award’ through which Tradewind’s different teams have nominated the best of the best to receive awards.
