In 2013, in association with, The Supply Teacher was proud to host the first annual National Supply Teacher Week, 17th - 21st June.  

Held in mid-June, National Supply Teacher Week is a chance for supply teachers to come together in support of one another, and give each other a great big pat on the back!



In what can be quite an isolating career, we encourage schools, recruitment agencies, the education press and government bodies to do the same.

Supporting and Celebrating Supply Teachers

Supply teachers around the world jump in at the deep end, and carry out their jobs under quite different circumstances to contracted teachers. Very often given just a few minutes to prepare for the day ahead with a room full of children they have never met, asked to deliver lessons they are unfamiliar with, in a school they don't know their way around, with staff that find it difficult to make time for a cup of coffee, let alone to help out a supply teacher!

Why the word 'supply'? Why not 'super'? Let's celebrate these super supply teachers, and show that they are worth their weight in gold!
