Continuity of Staffing

We understand that special schools need continuity of staffing. That’s why we work to create a pool of teachers and support workers who have the skills you need (and where appropriate, extra training or school induction) and make sure that they are available when you need them.

Through pre-booking and ring-fencing of staff Protocol Education has successfully managed to provide staff for schools which demand continuity as a pre-requisite of using an agency.

Knowledge & Experience

Our dedicated SEND consultants are the people who make all of this happen. We expect all of our SEND consultants to volunteer within a special school at least once a term to gain first-hand experience of the environment and be able to understand the kind or candidate required to work effectively for you.

Team Teach Training

Protocol Education now has 6 fully qualified Team Teach trainers on their staff and are able to provide access to a number of courses. These include a 1 day (6hr) basic course, a 2 day intensive course and refresher courses. All the Team Teach programmes have a holistic foundation and focus on a 95% de-escalation / 5% physical intervention approach.

The courses are tailored to the needs of medium risk individuals with challenging behaviours and service settings such as special schools and Pupil Referral Units. Typically the staff we train will be supporting individuals with documented challenging behaviours or special needs that may pose a physical risk to self or others.
