Opus Teach has been reflecting on the success of a free Suffolk event staged for supply teachers.
The company welcomed professionals to Ipswich’s Endeavour house for their first CPD event, which was presented by Jacqui Frost – Chief Executive of Suffolk Primary Heads Association.
The event covered important subjects such as behaviour management for a supply teacher, as well as what makes a good lesson.
It featured interactive activities which not only allowed for networking, but also helped with knowledge sharing.
Debbie Bell, Assistant Ops Manager for Opus Teach said: “The Opus Teach team were so proud to be able to provide this free CPD event for our own supply teachers and those from the wider supply network.
“We were pleased to be able to work with Jacqui Frost from SPHA and Madeleine Vigar from SASH to deliver a useful, interactive session that so many people could benefit from. We pride ourselves on being different and this event was just one of the reasons we are unique, enabling positive outcomes for both supply staff and schools.”
Opus Teach is a not for profit supply agency, owned by Suffolk County Council which focuses on supporting the needs of both schools and teachers by providing an easy to use service which is both robust and fair.
They understand the issues that can be faced with supply and focus on quality and compliance, ensuring that supply teachers and staff are adding value and producing outcomes in the classroom, whilst being paid a fair wage, in line with main teacher pay scales.
