Teaching Assistant

Can you contribute even an odd day to help support pupils’ education? Schools in your local area NEED your help – will you answer the call?

You may have heard in the news the Education Secretary calling for ex-teachers and support staff to return to teaching due to the devastating effects of the COVID variant Omicron. Unless former staff come forward, UK schools are expected to struggle to remain open well into the Spring Term. With your help and Supply Desk’s efforts to keep teaching staff in classrooms, we can make sure pupils are receiving consistent education.
