Here is a snippet of what Protocol can offer you:

Guaranteed Worker Pay - (GWP)

Looking for a bit of job security, but unsure about committing to a role sight unseen? A Guaranteed Work Agreement (GWA) could be for you.

If you want to work as much as possible for your first term in the UK, but can also see the appeal of settling into life in England through daily supply, GWA provides

the perfect balance. It’s a simple solution: we’ll guarantee you a set number of days of supply work per term, in return for your exclusive

commitment to Protocol Education for the duration of the agreement. Easy!

CPD

Every teacher and teacher assistant registered with Protocol Education in the UK has access to a whole range of continuing professional development (CPD) courses, with many based around improving your knowledge of special educational needs (SEN).

While you’re increasing your experience in the classroom, these courses will help you build skills and expand your career in new directions.

Take a look at some of the courses we’re currently offering on our website here:
