Yesterday we held a NQT registration evening for students who are finishing their PGCE and are looking for work when they have finished their course.
Thank you to everyone who came, it was lovely to chat to you all about the different opportunities we have.
Signing up to a supply agency is a great way to secure a permanent/ long term position. There are many reasons why registering with us is a good idea and these are a few:
Regular daily supply work leads to longer contracts- if you’re doing a great job in schools they can offer you long term/ permanent work. Schools want to be sure the person they are hiring is right for them- use supply as an opportunity to show them.
We have permanent job opportunities as well as temporary work.
Experience! Going into lots of different schools builds valuable skills which will prepare you for teaching life!
Income- you can be earning good money whilst looking for a long term/permanent position.
You will get to know the schools in your area, you’ll discover the schools that you’d love to work in whilst building relationships with staff in the school.
Picking up great tips- you’ll be going in and out of schools and each school have different procedures, different ways of dealing with things and a different ethos. Talking to members of staff in the staffroom can be a great way of picking up tips.
Confidence builder- if you get requested back to schools then you know you are doing something right! If not, we will give you the feedback you require to improve.
Induction year- many NQTs worry about not completing their induction year. You can still complete your induction year whilst undertaking a temporary contract. You can either do one full year in a school or spread your induction year over three terms in three different schools. This can be really beneficial as you will have three different experiences which shows potential employers that you can work in different types of learning environments.
If you are finishing your PGCE/ teacher training and are looking for work, please make sure you get in touch.
