​How Protocol Education helped me as an NQT

What other NQTs say about us​

"Before joining Protocol Education I was not sure about becoming a supply teacher. Since, I have visited many different schools all of which have provided opportunities to use my skills and challenge myself daily. Not only have I applied my skills but I have been able to learn new skills from undertaking this type of work." - Chloe Patten

"I completed my PGCE with QTS in 2018 and at the time I felt I lacked the skills and confidence to teach my own class, which led me to sign up with Protocol Education. Although going into various school settings was daunting at first, I found an inner confidence through teaching across both Key Stages and within a range of different schools.

Supply teaching is flexible, challenging, yet rewarding. Most schools are welcoming and often ask for me by name which means I have built up a good reputation as being a reliable and good class teacher. I have learnt class management skills over the past 2 years and now have the confidence to want to teach my own class.

Protocol staff have been helpful and encouraging, it has been a positive experience. " - Ross Lee
