From Marios at Step Teachers: 

At the moment my attention is on Pensions as our auto enrolment date is March 2014; I think this is a date for many companies across a lot of industries.  Similar to Holiday Pay and AWR this is something we'll have to work hard on and ensure we educate our supply teachers accordingly.


From Cherie-Anne at Aspire People:

Aspire People held an open day in a Leicester secondary school, introducing their candidates to the school, and the school to their candidates! Read more about it here: A Leicester school opens its doors to welcome Aspire People's teachers.

A First Class Effort

A business at the forefront of educational excellence in the North East has teamed up with the Newcastle United Foundation to provide funding for a series of free lessons which will reach up to 15,000 school children.

First Class Supply, which is the fastest-growing teaching supplier and training agency in the North East, has thrown its weight behind the charity’s Toon Times project, which aims to use the power of football to engage children across 430 schools over the next three years.

Toon Times gives children the opportunity to learn about the long and illustrious history of Newcastle United using a number of influential personalities and historic artefacts, as well as the chance to recreate their favourite Magpies moments from across the decades during the free two-hour lessons.
