Welcome to the New Protocol Education

About over 1 year ago By John Bishop

Pe Website Blog 22

​Welcome to the new look Protocol. After 16 years of faithful service, our pencil topper mascots have been sent to enjoy a well-earned retirement. In their place we have created a brand identity more in tune with where the education sector is at in 2019 and beyond.

16 years is a long time in education, more than enough time for a child to move from the Early Years Foundation Stage, through Key Stages 1, 2, 3 & 4 into post 16 and out into the world. And we believe our new look allows us to better reflect the individual character of all these different stages.

So, what has changed? Well first you will notice our logo. We have created something that is fresh and modern. Within the logo we have reversed the E of Education, creating a set of 3 steps that you will see throughout the new site and across all communications and promotional materials. The steps are really at the heart of how Protocol Education relates to the education landscape.

The steps signify the journey a child takes through these different stages of their education. And, although the path will vary depending on the child, ultimately, they only get one shot at getting a great education. Therefore, Protocol Education has a duty to find teachers, teaching and learning assistants, nursery and special needs staff who play their part to the full in every child’s education journey. No matter if they are in school for a day, a term or a year, in education there are no rehearsals, it is live all the time.

The steps also represent the careers of our candidates. Working with Protocol Education is about flexibility and choice, but it is also an opportunity for our candidates to further their careers, gain new experiences and skills and develop as an educator. Protocol Education supports each step our candidates make on their career paths. We invest in providing training and our consultants provide pastoral care and career guidance helping our candidates find rewarding work.

The three steps represent Protocol Education’s position as part of a triumvirate; our clients, our candidates and us. Our aim is to make this relationship seamless and harmonious with our ongoing focus and energy directed towards:

  • finding the right people for the right jobs in the right schools

  • helping schools run efficiently and improving pupils’ outcomes

  • ensuring the highest vetting standards are maintained

  • making sure our candidates are paid accurately and on time

  • providing the best possible customer service and experience

  • promoting, delivering and enhancing careers in education

We want our brand to focus on our candidates, clients and the pupils they work to provide an excellent education for. We hope you like our new look and hope you see yourself in it. Education is a dynamic and exciting sector to work in, and we don’t want to miss a single piece of it.

We look forward to working with you today, tomorrow and long into the future.
