Did you once work in a school? Retired, changed profession, moved abroad, circumstances changed? We need you back asap….
Schools and supply agencies across the country are experiencing unprecedented issues due to a shortage of teachers and support staff. This has prompted a national campaign from the DfE, pleading with ex-staff to register with agencies to make sure that as many staff as possible are available to our schools.
As one of the North East's leading education recruitment agencies, it is our duty to help boost capacity and relay this message to as many former education professionals as possible in the hope you will join us in helping to mitigate the impact of staff absence on the educational outcomes of our next generation. School closures can have a devastating impact on mental health as well as personal and academic development, but The Education Network is striving to ensure local schools remain open by facilitating your return to the classroom.
We appreciate you might feel rusty or be worried about having to plan and resource lessons from scratch. Don't worry, we have a number of resources to support you:
Oak National Academy
We wanted to make you aware of the resources available through Oak National Academy that will help you with returning to the classroom this term. Oak National Academy has over 40,000 free and easy to access lessons and resources for 4-16 year olds across a wide range of subjects. All of the lessons have been created by teachers for teachers and cover just about everything a supply teacher might be asked to cover.
The Education Network have partnered up with EduCare, to provide a catalogue of excellent accredited CPD to our supply staff. EduCare is a market-leading provider of high-quality, concise and easy-to-use safeguarding and duty of care e-learning services. Some of these include; Safeguarding Young People, The Prevent Duty, First Aid Essentials, Autism Awareness, Dyslexia Awareness, Preventing Bullying, The SEND Code of Practice.
We can provide full details of both during your online registration with us and have the most experienced staff in the North East on hand to guide you through the process.
If you are considering a return to your teaching career, even if temporarily during this crisis, please contact our us on 0191 386 0477 or lewis.price @ednetwork.co.uk to discuss registration.
