Global recruiter hosts supply teacher conference

Specialist supply teaching agency Randstad Education, is partnering with Sheffield Institute of Education to host the first ever national professional development conference for UK supply teachers.

The one-day conference will be held at Sheffield Hallam University on Saturday 20th June. In support of National Supply Teachers week, it is free to attend (worth £275 per delegate), and supply teachers will be offered advice on implementing effective and innovative teaching and learning strategies in the classroom. The all-day event will also include four bespoke, interactive workshops on priority educational themes, and participants will also have a choice of subject specialist sessions across science, maths and English.

Stewart McCoy, Strategic Operations Director of Randstad Education, said:

“This event is the first of its kind for the sector, and will give supply teachers a collaborative platform to share ideas and best practice, draw on specialist knowledge, and be inspired by new teaching strategies. It aims to make sure that supply teachers are fully-prepared when heading into the classroom, and building up their experience to make sure they can get the best results out of their students, and boost the quality of teaching in schools.”

The event is open to all supply teachers across the UK, and those interested in attending can register online here:
