Provide Education are extremely excited and proud to support National Supply Teacher Week again this year. Provide Education have continued to expand on an annual basis and we are proud to be Preferred Supplier to a large number of LEA schools and academies in the Yorkshire and The East Midlands Area.
Supply Teachers play such an important part in the success of a child's education and we feel it is important for us to ensure the supply teachers are treated with the respect they deserve.
During National Supply Teacher Week Provide Education asked schools to nominate any teachers they feel are worthy of an award. We regularly feedback to all our teachers and offer teacher of the month awards in addition to an overall teacher of the year. This helps show our appreciation to the teachers and the appreciation on behalf of the schools. Those teachers that do go above and beyond should be recognised for their excellent commitment for the education of children.
Our consultants have been out and about this week delivering the prizes to our winners. Here is what our schools had to say about the worthy winners;
Jackie, East Midlands Supply teacher: “Jackie is always friendly and happy to 'muck in'”.
Suzy, East Midlands Supply Teacher: "Suzy is loved by the children and highly respected by the staff. She is very much part of our team."
Leanne, West Yorkshire Supply Teacher: “Leanne is an excellent teacher and a lovely person – she deserves it.’
Leanne said: “Thank you to Provide for the opportunities and for finding me so much work. Thank you for my prize too – I love Body Shop!’
Joyce, South Yorkshire Supply Teacher: “We would like to nominate Joyce in recognition of the outstanding service and support she has given to our school over the past 6 years that I’ve been Headteacher. Joyce is a lovely person who clearly wants the very best for children in her care. She has clear high expectations in terms of both learning and behaviour and this has been evident throughout her time in the School.
We have been very grateful for the long term support she has provided in Year 1 and Foundation Stage. We wish Joyce every best wish for the future. From all of the staff, children and governors of Birkwood Primary School.”
Abigail, South Yorkshire Supply Teacher: “We would like to nominate Abigail. She is always positive, professional and skilled in any role we have asked her to fulfil in school. She is an excellent advert for Provide as an agency.”
