Staff at New Directions Education took part in ‘Supply for Lunch’ in conjunction with TheSupplyTeacher.com.
The initiative was aimed at highlighting what can sometimes be an isolating career and also recognising the hard work our supply teachers do. Staff from New Directions Education visited schools to provide treats to all staff members and raise awareness.
Mehnaz Khan Group Communications assistant at New Directions commented ‘ At New Directions we try to place staff at local schools for them to build relationships and so the school and children have continuity. Even so supply teaching can sometimes be a lonely and daunting career where no two days are ever the same. When we heard about the Supply for Lunch initiative we were excited to get involved. We hope initiatives like this can raise the profile of supply staff and the very important role they undertake’
