Leicester and Leicestershire Supply Teachers' Network

A really informative and successful event was attended by nearly forty supply teachers at the start of half term. Thank you to Shelagh Kavanagh for answering supply teacher questions and updating us on the current issues facing supply teachers across the country. Support from the Leicester NUT Officers and Committee members was also greatly appreciated. Together we can be stronger!

Some comments:

I really enjoyed meeting all those supply teachers and members of the NUT... Good luck with your role in the NUT and thank you for everything you do for supply teachers. One thing that makes me feel confident about AWR is that it's part of employment law and the document published by the Department for Education is very clear.

Just to say 'Thank you' to [Samina and Simon] for organising the NUT/NEU bash on Saturday. Very enjoyable and useful.

It was a really well organised and successful meeting... It was good to hear about people's concerns - in a constructive way with an opportunity for a response. It's also really good that a positive message is being shared with Supply Teachers. I think that there is good work being done in various divisions and associations and it will be really good to get that across at the conference.

P.S. Our AWR quiz winner was Codra!
