Protocol are an excellent agency in Bristol, I have had work on a full time basis, and often working in the same schools each week. I find them reliable and always putting me first for where I wish to work. Would highly recommend them.
Good pay, Paye, regular work
I really enjoy working in preschool and schools. I can choose that which days and hours I can work in schools or preschools. I can work in one school for long term as well. They pay for per day .
Flexible work and good pay.
They don't pay for holidays.
Protocol (northern branch) seem content with sending teaching staff out to do long term (low-paid) TA jobs rather than work to find positions which are better suite and better paid. They try to pay fully qualified teachers cover wage for day to day work Other agencies do not do this!
I do not receive travel expenses at Protocol education therefore I am unable to work every day and earn reasonable income to pay my bills. Maximum money I can earn here is only 1300 pounds and 300 pounds each month I need for my travelling to and from work.
Fun workplace but not particularly well paid. Bit psychotic about sickness though, have to endure Spanish inquisition each time you're off sick, not much sympathy. Vibrant place to work with a generally younger demographic. May be good for a first job but not much longevity.
Protocol are very flexible as they work around your availability, if you can not work that day then you don't have to, however, there is no holiday pay and no pay over half terms, Christmas etc. I have learned a lot and gained a lot of teaching experience through this job.
The Sheffield branch is great. I get consistent work and everyone I speak to is lovely. Definitely recommend. Pay is reasonable, as best as it could be, though I find primary supply teachers are generally not paid as well as they should be and I had to push for an amount I think is decent. Not enough opportunity for training is the main flaw, but I'd still definitely register with them over other agencies in Sheffield.
Protocol is a friendly and active company. They are quite very steady with jobs but pay less in some qualifications. They have a very good listening and communication skills which I find very excellent for any cooperate business.
Working as a supply teacher has enabled me to be able to take time off whenever to be able to travel. Although this has been great not being paid over the holiday periods does become a . problem financially at times.
In charge of my own days working/not working
Can get sent all over London
Work is pretty easy to pick up day to day when the school term is on - not so much when holidays are on. It is quiet easy to find a school/position you like and pick up part time/full time work. London was easy to find work in. The company is pretty decent with communication when you are consistently working, but can be difficult to get a hold of when you take a break from working - expect to have to make lots of calls and unanswered emails from them during these times.
There's no job security, and you don't get paid for any holidays or sick days. It's fine if you balance it with another job and if the schools are local to you. I loved working with the teachers in the class room, Getting to help the children is most rewarding.
Supply work, you tell them if your avalible
salary wise isn't that great to live on, The agency take a big cut.
Working for Protocol has been a pleasure. The agency is involved with supplying teachers to schools in the event of absences. I had regular work, a good daily salary and work flexibility. Guaranteed work schemes are also an option. You are required to turn up at the seleceted school by 8:15, sign in, collect your timetable and then deliver the planned cover work. The level of support and guidance differs from school to school, but generally there is plenty of help on offer to make your day a pleasant one. If there are schools that you don't like going to then you have the option of not going there again. You do get to meet many interesting students and staff members.
Daily rates of pay. Variety of working environments. Work flexibility.
No pay during school holidays. Some schools are not as well organised.
