Teaching Support Professional
I’d just like to say thank you for the opportunity I’ve had to learn to teach at your school. It is a truly wonderful place of learning and you and your staff make it so.
Thank you for all your kindness and wonderful support. I really am so very grateful to you for giving me the opportunity to work at St Joseph’s. Thank you. It really was a privilege.
Thank you for being a (genuinely) inspirational leader and letting me be a part of your team here at St Joseph’s – it is a pleasure and an honour!

Before I came to St Joseph’s I was very close to giving up on teaching as I had many knock backs in my first school... but it turns out I just hadn’t found the right school. I will be forever grateful for the support I received on a professional level, but also on a personal level when I needed it most.
Thank you for your support and leadership throughout my time at St Joseph’s. I am very grateful for the high standards you set and feel confident to further my career, but St Joseph’s will always hold a special place for me.
You really have been a wonderful lot to work with. You are so patient and kind which really makes a difference. I will miss the banter over the phone and in the corridors which has made it a joy coming to work. You are all part of an amazing team and the students at this school are very lucky to have you.

DfE Early Career Framework reforms
After a challenging year for trainees, it is more important than ever new teachers receive the best possible support at the start of their careers.
The Early Career Framework ECF reforms are designed to ensure that early career teachers develop the skills and confidence they need. If your school offers statutory induction, you will need to replace your current induction process with this new funded programme of professional development and support.
Please read this leaflet for more information.
