Specialist recruitment business The Education Network has teamed up with Vue Cinema Cramlington, home of the biggest screen in the North East, to provide half-price tickets so registered teachers can enjoy all of the very latest blockbuster movie action.
Wayne Daley, partnership manager at The Education Network said: “I am delighted that Vue Cinema has joined with us to give something back to the hardworking teachers who play such an important role in our communities. All of us who live in Northumberland know what a fantastic place this is and we want to encourage more of the very best teachers, whether they are newly qualified or have years of experience behind them, to come and work in our county’s schools.
“Along with our professional development programmes, guaranteed pay schemes and training packages the reward card is another way in which we recognise the immense contribution teachers make.”
The Vue Cinema reward card is available to new supply teachers and support staff who register with The Education Network as well as to those who have previously registered and are now in teaching or support posts.
Rachel Carter is general manager at the nine-screen Vue Cinema Cramlington and she commented: “We regularly welcome school visits and see for ourselves the dedication and professionalism of teachers. Everyone enjoys a trip to the cinema and we’re really looking forward to welcoming teachers and support staff to a great movie night out at the end of a day or week in the classroom.”
In June 2015 The Education Network opened a brand new office at Manor Walks in Cramlington, one of four it has in the North East with another 10 across the country. Since it was established in 2011, the company has grown to employ 33 experts in education recruitment.
