Special Needs Schools, Units and Provisions

Working in partnership with special schools to help them find the teaching

and support staff they need to succeed. 

Range of Staff

We provide Teachers and Support Workers with the skills and experience to cover roles in SLD, PMLD, SEMH, ASD schools, Pupil Referral Units and alternative provisions. Additionally, we can provide effective staffing for any role within your school, including:

  • Teachers & Support Workers

  • Subject co-ordinators and heads of units

  • Teacher of the Deaf and VI specialists

  • Peripatetic, Outreach and Advisory Teachers

  • Education caseworkers and Behaviour specialists

  • Speech and Language Therapists

  • Community-based/Outreach Learning Support and 1-to-1 tutors


Continuity of Staffing

We understand that special schools need continuity of staffing. That’s why we work to create a pool of teachers and support workers who have the skills you need (and, where appropriate, extra training or school induction) and make sure that they are available when you need them.

​Protocol Education has successfully managed to provide staff for schools that demand continuity as a pre-requisite of using an agency through pre-booking and ring-fencing of staff.

Knowledge & Experience

Our dedicated SEND consultants are the people who make all of this happen. We expect all of our SEND consultants to volunteer within a special school at least once a term to gain first-hand experience with the environment and be able to understand the kind of candidate required to work effectively for you.

Team Teach Training

Protocol Education now has six fully qualified Team Teach trainers on their staff and can provide access to a number of courses. These include a one day (6hr) basic course, a two day intensive course and refresher courses. All the Team Teach programmes have a holistic foundation and focus on a 95% de-escalation / 5% physical intervention approach.

The courses are tailored to the needs of medium-risk individuals with challenging behaviours and service settings such as special schools and Pupil Referral Units. Typically, the staff we train will support individuals with documented challenging behaviours or special needs that may pose a physical risk to self or others.
