Recruiting for the Return

How Protocol Education can help you navigate a changing recruitment landscape

Assessing Your Changing Workforce Needs Post COVID-19

As your school approaches reopening, you will need to assess your workforce:

  • Are all your staff available to return?

  • What gaps do you need to fill?

  • What are the extra challenges and contingencies you will need to prepare for

  • Are you able to attract new staff and NQTs through advertising?

  • Do you have enough staff to keep group sizes small?

  • Have you the capacity to help pupils catch-up after the closures?

Protocol Education can help answer all these questions and more.

We remained open during the school closures, choosing not furlough any of our staff. Instead we have been working hard to
recruit and prepare candidates for the resumption of school.
We welcome the opportunity to discuss how we can help you
reopen successfully

Recruiting Long-Term Cover

If you need to cover self-shielding, recruit cover for absent staff members or add new staff to your team,
Protocol Education can help.

Candidate Video Profiles give you a real feel for the candidates before shortlisting the ones you wish to interview.

Video interviews allow you to explore each candidate in detail, safely, to discover if they are a fit for your school.

We can arrange online-lessons to give you a real insight into how the candidate interacts with your pupils.

Our NQT Connect service is attracting NQTs from around the country to fill your relevant vacancies for September and beyond.

Recruiting temporary staff now gives you flexibility. You can make additional changes during the autumn term.

Building a Flexible Workforce

We have the range of teachers and support workers who will make reopening easier.

Our First Call Agreement gives guarantees you a great daily rate and delivers valuable offers from our partners.

Staying open during the lockdown allowed us to recruit thousands of additional teachers and support workers who felt abandoned by their agency.

Creating an Online teaching service and offering a generous furlough package has maintained our existing candidate pool.

Offering specialist CPD courses, including units on Anxiety, as well as managing behaviour and helping to establish focus, means that our candidates will be ready to face the challenges of reopening.
