Protocol Education specialist SEND teams and consultants will help you navigate the vast range of work options that exist within special needs, and find you the amount and type of work you need. While it can feel challenging to start with, you will soon be ready to take on any special needs teaching job that comes your way.

Short Term and Daily Supply Work in Special Needs

While some special needs, schools will avoid short term cover, many S contact Protocol Education to help them find cover for daily and short-term cover. This can be a great "in" to a school or a particular area of special needs for a teacher. The ability to be flexible, listen and learn quickly is a great advantage to an aspiring special needs teacher.

For you, daily supply work is a great option if you want flexibility or need to combine work with other responsibilities and interests. Typically we look for people who are available for at least 3 days a week, but you can manage your own availability and take the work that suits your lifestyle.

Long Term and Permanent Jobs

The demand for experienced special needs teachers across the range of special needs schools is high. Gaining experience in daily cover will put you in a great position to take on longer-term and permanent roles as they become available. Protocol Education's specialist SEND consultants will help you make the most of your experience, help you prepare your CV and put you forward for truly career-enhancing jobs.
