Step Teachers, for the second year running, are proud to support National Supply Teacher Week. We have committed to helping achieve the following aims:
· To support supply teachers with their professional development – we hold CPD sessions for all our teachers, TAs and cover supervisors, free of charge to enable them to be the best they can be. Knowledge is power!
· To help schools work with supply teachers more effectively – we encourage all our schools to present each and every supply teacher with their very own ‘Welcome Pack’ when they walk into the school, informing them of their timetable, a school map, the schools behaviour policy and all the other little things that make your day as a supply teacher that bit easier!
· To help combat the recurring feeling amongst supply teachers isolation – What we would do: hold social events for supply teachers to meet each other and form a network of support, including end of term drinks, Christmas parties for all our teachers and also coffee mornings!
