Teachers across Northumberland are being rewarded for their hard work in and out of the classroom with cut-price nights out in front of the big screen.

Specialist recruitment business The Education Network has teamed up with Vue Cinema Cramlington to provide up to half-price tickets so registered teachers can enjoy all of the very latest blockbuster movie action.

Wayne Daley, partnership manager at The Education Network, said: “I am delighted that Vue Cinema has partnered with us to give something back to the hardworking teachers who play such an important role in our communities.

“We want to encourage more of the very best teachers, whether they are newly-qualified or have years of experience behind them, to come and work in our county’s schools.

“Along with our professional development programmes, guaranteed pay schemes and training packages, the reward card is another way in which we recognise the immense contribution teachers make.”

The Vue Cinema reward card is available to new supply teachers and support staff who register with The Education Network as well as to those who have previously registered and are now in teaching or support posts.

Vue Cinema Cramlington’s general manager, Rachel Carter, added: “We regularly welcome school visits and see for ourselves the dedication and professionalism of teachers.

“We’re really looking forward to welcoming teachers and support staff.”
