Staff Interview: Terry, SEN Consultant for Surrey

Protocol Education has recently opened a branch specifically for the Surrey area to meet the rising demand for Teachers and Support Workers in Surrey Schools.

Terry is responsible for recruiting SEN teachers and support workers for schools in Kingston, Richmond, Epsom & Ewell.


What do you do at Protocol Education?

I am the SEN consultant for the special schools in Surrey.

How long have you been at Protocol Education and what do you like most about working here?

I have been at Protocol Education since May 2012. What I like most is working with my friends and meeting my candidates.

What did you do before you worked for Protocol Education?

Before Protocol Education I worked in a school for children with ASD as a higher level teaching assistant where I covered PPA and dealt with the daily supply needs.

What are the qualities you value most in the candidates who work for you?

Politeness, honesty, punctuality and effort!

What advice would you give to someone from overseas, coming over to teach in the UK?

To hold no fear, be confident and enjoy the experience...

You’re shipwrecked on a deserted island with only three other Protocol Education employees for company. Who do you choose and why?

  • I would choose Monique in SEN for her random humour that would pass the time.
  • Patrick the Surrey Primary Consultant - to fight the sharks!
  • My boss if he’s stuck too then I can’t be sacked for being late...

What are your three favourite things in the world?

Family, Chelsea and Nandos

If you could be any type of animal, what would you be and why?

I like to swim and also climb and run so...A shark or a panther....a SHANTHER!!!!

If you could only eat one type of food for the rest of your life what type of food would that be?


Describe yourself in only four words......

Friendly, Cheeky, Random, Funny, inattentive   ;)

[Ed: that’s five words Terry – pay attention!]
