New teaching graduates are being offered the possibility of immediate work by Brighouse specialist recruitment agency Provide Education.
The expanding agency, based on Owler Ings Road, Brighouse, is visiting universities and holding open days to sign up NQTs all this month.
Managing director Katie Jones said: “The summer term can be a very busy time for schools dealing with exams, so demand for supply teachers can be high. Where vacancies arise, schools often say they appreciate the enthusiasm and fresh ideas that newly qualified teachers bring. We work fast so can get NQTs registered, approved and into work within days of finishing their teaching practices.”
Claire Dodsworth, a graduate of Sheffield Hallam University, joined Provide Education in June 2013.
“I would definitely recommend supply teaching,” she said. “The experience has massively increased my confidence in the classroom.
“I’ve always been given excellent support too. The team at Provide give thorough briefings so that you always know what to expect before each assignment and frequently call afterwards to see how it went. It has been a great first year for my career.”
