What is Takeover Thursday?

Takeover Thursday - Supply Teacher NetworkOn Thursdays, in our busy Facebook group, we invite agencies, authors, resource companies, head teachers, umbrella companies, anyone with an interest in talking with supply teachers, to join us and take the helm for the day!

For the 24 hours that they are with us, the admin team will not stop them from adding a link to their websites, telling us about their job vacancies, asking questions, or answering questions.  We would like the opportunity to learn from them, and they from us.

In addition to this, we invite the #TakeoverThursday guest to upload to the group's Files section, a day or two later, a PDF file containing notes and contacts details for future reference.

As Facebook group posts are lost over time, I may also add my own record of the Takeover days here for future generations to enjoy!

Can we host a Takeover?

Takeover Thursday VouchersTakeover Thursdays in Facebook's Supply Teacher Network are available term time (Cumbria dates) only, most weeks.

The 'cost' is the number of members divided by ten > add a £ to the front > do giveaways during the day of supermarket / high street vouchers, totalling that sum. For example, the total number of members is currently around 3,000 so I would be looking for a promise of a giveaway of around £300 in vouchers on the day - your chance to give back to the community.

A PDF review of the day, with all your contact details, can be added to the Files section within the group before the following Thursday. 
You may be offered the opportunity to have a review written for this website, featuring your logo.

NSTs (Non-Supply Teacher Members) are not permitted to start their own threads unless it is their Takeover. 
NSTs are not permitted to give contact details / name of company / type external links / invite people to PM them etc., unless it is their Takeover.
No NST other than the Takeover host is permitted to post / comment on a Thursday. 

Please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to book your date.

The 'cost' may be altered at the admin group's discretion.
