Teaching Agency Helps Schools Cope with Absence During Snow Blizzard

Teaching Agency Helps Schools Cope with Absence During Snow Blizzard

A Sutton Coldfield based supply teaching agency helped schools throughout the Midlands cope with absent staff who are stranded due to snow conditions.

Even though hundreds of schools across the Midlands were closed  due to poor weather many schools still remained open. Teaching and office staff stranded at home couldn't make it in to school and schools have struggled to cope with absent staff this morning. Aspire People, a Sutton Coldfield based supply teaching agency, has helped primary and secondary schools throughout the Midlands by supplying teachers and office staff at last minute notice.

Michaela Powell, Director and Owner of Aspire Peoplesaid: "It has been manic since 6.30 this morning. Not only have we had to inform staff of school closures but re-direct them to schools that need cover. In total we have had 192 cover staff working in schools today from 7 o'clock this morning. '

Marketing Manager for Aspire Peoplesaid: "The phones have been hectic but we have coped, all the consultants ensured that we had teachers, cover supervisors, exam invigilators and office staff on standby this morning and ready to respond to last minute calls. I wanted to make sure that our candidates were able to get to local schools as quickly as possible but still safely."

The snow is due to continue throughout the weekend and create further disruption to schools, roads and travel throughout the early part of next week.
