Embarking on her Early Career Teacher (ECT) journey, Emma found unwavering support and valuable experiences through her collaboration with CER. From the initial enquiry about supply work to her current role as a supply teacher, Emma shares insights into her journey.
Benefits of Working as an Early Career Teacher on Supply
Working on supply has been a game-changer for Emma. The ability to work in various schools across the Northeast has meant Emma experienced different teaching environments and age groups. This invaluable experience, ranging from day nurseries to year 6 classrooms, allowed Emma to develop a broad skill set and explore different teaching strategies.
“If you’re not sure which age range you want to work in or you feel you don’t have enough experience in some specific areas then supply is a great way to go as an ECT.”
