I would like to welcome back all our teachers and education staff to this new academic year.
This is a time when newly qualified teachers will begin their journey into supply teaching and it can be used as a time to impress the schools in which you are placed. This is your opportunity to develop relationships with schools which can turn into permanent placements in the future. We have welcomed hundreds more teachers and staff onto the books at Apollo and said goodbye to many who have now progressed to long term or permanent employment.
The summer has also been a time for change within Apollo, we have devised a new interactive training programme which will be launched later next month. We will also be continuing our observations programme where experienced teachers will be monitoring and mentoring our staff.
We have helped many staff this year with advice on their CV’s and helped with application forms for permanent positions, we are never too busy to help with your career development. There are many training modules available and we would actively encourage you to express an interest in them.
I would like to say how honoured I am that you have chosen to work through Apollo Teaching Services and as a former teacher, I know the challenges that can present themselves when supply teaching and the support that you may need. The way you represent Apollo Teaching Services in the schools you visit is impeccable. I recently read the anonymous feedback forms sent to every school we service throughout the UK and the feedback received on the staff we provide was excellent. You were congratulated on your professionalism and enthusiasm whilst working in schools.
Thank you to all our teachers, cover supervisors, teaching assistants, caretakers, admin staff and all others who provide a service within our schools.
As a company we will continue to push our brand forward and to build upon the excellent reputation we have within our schools and councils throughout the UK.
Good luck for the new school year.
