Here at Key Stage Teacher Supply, we want our supply teachers, teaching assistants and nursery nurses to be asked back to the schools that they visit. If a school is happy with one of our members of staff, then so are we. And so are the children. And so is the teacher! Its a win-win-win-win!
Here are a few tips to ensure that you make a good impression:
- Smile – you would be surprised how much of a difference this makes. Agencies like ours often hear positive feedback about ‘smiley’ teachers and support staff – it seems to be a memorable trait!
- Be on time – be clear about where you are going and set off in plenty of time. It sounds obvious, but staff who are late won’t usually be asked to come back.
- Volunteer for playground duty – for obvious reasons, this will go down well. It also gives you the opportunity to meet and get to know the children.
- Leave a note – it is really important to leave the returning teacher an indication of how the day went, which work was completed, who did well, etc. Key Stage Teacher Supply will provide you with a ‘handover notes’ format to use.
- Say goodbye – it is important to make someone in the school office aware when you are leaving.This is also an opportunity to say thankyou for a lovely day (hopefully), and to mention that you would like to come back in future.
