A BBC report today announced that the Welsh Assembly’s education committee reported that a lack of professional support might be causing newly qualified teachers to leave the profession. It particularly highlighted supply work. It stated that 30% of supply teachers around 1,500 in Wales were newly qualified teachers and that the Welsh assembly government is working with councils to improve support given to temporary teaching staff.
At Apollo we believe that ongoing support and training opportunities are an essential part of the package we offer to our teaching staff. A full list of our training programme can be found in the staff login area of this website and we are always open to ideas on how to improve these courses and content.
We work very closely with schools to develop good working partnerships and recognise that this process must be ongoing in order for us to support our teachers and our client schools.
I hope that you will make the most of the training courses available in the coming months and in addition, if you have any professional concerns remember we are here to support you and your account manager will be happy to talk to you at any time. I am grateful for the outstanding level of commitment shown by Apollo’s teachers and believe that reports like this are excellent as they recognise and acknowledge the work you are doing and how important it is.
