Calling all ex-teachers

Calling all ex-teachers

Are you an ex-teacher thinking about returning to the classroom but worried about all that planning again or feeling a bit rusty? Fear not, we have all the resources you could ever need right here…..

You’ll probably be aware that the Education Minister has recently called for ex-teachers to return to the classroom to support schools and colleges to manage staff absence due to the ongoing pandemic. We’ve been hearing that some of the biggest concerns for ex-teachers returning are as follows:

  • They are happy to cover lessons but are worried about the additional time required to plan and resource lessons from scratch. 
  • People are confident in their specialist subject but worried about covering lessons beyond their subject specialism. 
  • Some might feel a bit ‘rusty’ and are worried that they might not get the support they need, particularly during those first few lessons. 

Oak National Academy has over 40,000 free and easy to access lessons and resources for 4-16 year olds across a wide range of subjects, including plans and resources for delivering lessons to pupils with special educational needs and disabilities. All of the lessons have been created by teachers for teachers and cover just about everything a supply teacher might be asked to cover.  So no need to worry about late night lesson planning, all of these resources can be found here:
