Protocol Education's Flexible Furlough Scheme
In the first Covid-19 lockdown, we were able to support our candidates by being one of the very first to launch a furlough scheme.
Today, as we now find ourselves in the third national lockdown, we are pleased to confirm that Protocol Education will be launching a new flexible furlough scheme, to support all eligible candidates during this difficult time.
The new flexible furlough scheme is a little different to before and our teams are now hard at work, updating our systems and processes to ensure our scheme remains fully compliant with HM Government rules.
In the meantime, Protocol Education are already working very closely with all our school customers to understand their ongoing need for support. With many children still attending school as critical worker or vulnerable children, and extensive remote learning planned, we are already seeing far greater need for our candidates to continue to offer their vital support to schools at this time.
Protocol Education will be contacting eligible candidates during the next two weeks, but please be aware that under HM Government rules, not everyone is eligible. For those who are, we anticipate the first furlough payments will be made at the end of this month. This payment will be backdated to the 4th January 2021 to ensure you receive the maximum you are eligible for, and further payments will follow in February.
Finally, as we work hard in the next few weeks to get this money to all those who are eligible, we are grateful for your continued patience. However, should you have any questions, queries or concerns, please make contact with your usual consultant or branch.
