Red Apple Education are delighted to announce their sponsorship of Mollie Parker for the forthcoming season.
Mollie is the captain of the Warrington Wolves Ladies u19s team and we are very proud to be associated with her and to be able to support her during the new season.
Warrington Wolves Ladies Team started last year from scratch and Mollie managed to get a position in the squad. The team won the Championship Grand Final and have been promoted to Super League. This year Wolves decided to run an u19 team and Mollie was asked to be captain. She can still play for the full ladies’ team if needed however she was wanted to play regular rugby for the u19s.
The recognition Mollie has received by the club and her peers and the progress she has made since joining them has been outstanding.
Mollie herself is 18 and due to start at Lancaster University in September doing English Literature.
We spoke with Mollie during the finalisation of the sponsorship and we first asked her to provide a summary of her position in the team:
"The number on my jersey is number 9, which indicates that I play the position of ‘Hooker’ where I pick the ball up from the play-the-ball after a tackle to begin the play. Therefore, together with the two half backs and the fullback, the hooker is one of the four key positions that make up what is sometimes called a team's 'spine'.
Commenting on her progression to captaincy and the additional responsibilities she has now assumed, Mollie stated:
"Before I was made captain, I learned a lot last season on the open age team about team morale, motivation and communication. Coming into the team, it was refreshing to see that there were not any cliques which would have divided the players. Therefore, we were able to easily motivate and communicate with each other both on and off the pitch. This is one of the most important aspects which I wanted to bring to the newly formed under 19s team this season. This is because, no one would second guess asking any other player to explain a certain move or technique that they wanted to improve. Thus, such a welcoming environment allowed us to help each other build on specific skills which we individually wanted to develop."
Mollie also provided an insight into the normal match day experience:
"On match days, I would lead the warm-up and try to ensure that everyone is in the right mindset going into the pitch. Additionally, while on the pitch I would aim to keep a level head so that I can focus on both our personal and team goals. Together, these two factors mean that there is no infighting between players when we are in pressurised situations because that will never help you win the game, only increase the frustration and tension between players. Therefore, by doing this, I hope to make playing for the Warrington Wolves even more enjoyable."
Commenting for Red Apple Education, Jamie Sheils (Director) said "we are very proud to be sponsoring Mollie for the forthcoming season. A lot of the skills and attributes Mollie displays both as a competitive athlete and in everyday life are what we as a company, can relate. Mollie has achieved great things in such a short space of time, she leads from the front and by example. Honesty, hard work, teamwork and camaraderie are key to the success of the team and Mollie clearly works hard to instil these at every opportunity. It will be a very exciting season for Mollie and the team, and we will be supporting their progress and plan to be involved in their ongoing success."
Mollie was recently picture at the offices of Red Apple Education in the Royal Albert Dock, Liverpool.

We are delighted to confirm that our new Liverpool office based at the Royal Albert Dock is now open.
We are already supporting schools in the Liverpool, Sefton and Knowsley areas with their day to day and longer-term staffing requirements and look forward to growing this number and developing strong and lasting relationships over the coming weeks and months.
Opening our second office is a reflection of the successful growth we have experienced over the past 4 years and a wonderful chapter in the story of Red Apple Education.
The Royal Albert Dock is a major tourist attraction in Liverpool and (outside London) is the most visited multi-use attraction in the UK. It is also a vital component of Liverpool's UNESCO designated World Heritage status and has a vibrant and growing business community. With its docking complex and warehouses comprising the largest single collection of Grade I listed buildings anywhere in the UK, we are understandably very proud to have an office in such a prestigious location.
Our Liverpool office not only allows us to support more schools, local authorities, trusts and academies, but also given the proximity between Wirral and Liverpool, provides an opportunity for our staff to work in more schools providing greater diversity and experience. We can also attract a greater number of high-quality staff who are seeking employment in the Merseyside and Cheshire areas. Our existing office in the village of Thornton Hough, Wirral will continue to be our head office.
We offer our schools our unique service that benefits from affordable pricing and quality staff. We have a 100% satisfaction rate with all the schools we currently work with and would be happy to share testimonials that reflect how good and how effective we are when working with schools. To give just one example…
“Red Apple Education is the best agency I have ever used and I would use no other. They totally understand my school’s needs and provided two outstanding teachers for me when Ofsted was looming…I can’t praise them enough!” (Headteacher, Cheshire Primary School).
We are widely recognised as being specialists at providing creative staffing solutions for schools. We are still wholly committed to charging our schools less at the same time as paying our staff more.
We provide staffing cover and solutions for all school roles from caretakers, cleaners and kitchen staff to admin, teaching assistants, teachers and leadership positions.
If you are a school and have any staffing requirements either day-to-day, short term or long term then please do not hesitate to call us on 0151 708 6789. If you are looking to work in a school setting, then please give us a call on the same number for an informal chat. When you speak to us you will be speaking to staff who have all worked in schools at senior leadership level, so we totally understand your challenges!
As with our Head office, the Liverpool office will be open from 7am to 6pm Monday to Friday although we are contactable at any time.
At Red Apple Education we rely totally on recommendations and word of mouth. Our success has been built on the philosophy that if we are doing what we do properly, equitably and most importantly with integrity then staff and schools will follow!
This has proved to be one of the key reasons for our success which is why we now feel the time is right to launch our 'Recommend a Friend' scheme.
If you know someone who is currently working in a nursery, school or college environment and are looking to join a company that places them first, works hard to get them the right placements and schools and above all else, is committed to paying more...then why not refer them to us.
In doing so you will earn £100 for you and your friend.
The process is simple...make your friend aware of who we are and encourage them to make contact with us. Alternatively, you can provide their details to us (note you must have their permission) and we will contact them and start the registration process. Once they are registered and have met our minimum criteria then you and your friend will receive £100 in gift vouchers.
Note there are no limitations on how many friends you can refer so away you go...recommend away!

We are delighted to announce our partnership with Wirral Foodbank.
Wirral Foodbank is affiliated to the Trussell Trust who partners with local communities to help stop UK hunger. Thirteen million people live below the poverty line in the UK, with individuals going hungry every day for a range of reasons, from benefit delays to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. The Trussell Trust’s 400-strong network of foodbanks provides a minimum of three days’ emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis in the UK. In 2015/16, they gave 1,109,309 three-day emergency food supplies to people in crisis.
Wirral Foodbank recognises that stopping hunger is about more than food, which is why they provide a range of services such as debt and benefit advice, helping people to break the cycle of poverty.
Red Apple Education is one of the fastest growing independent school employment businesses in the Northwest and provides a transparent, fairer and more ethical service to schools and staff. We are fast becoming the employment business of choice for schools and staff and we are committed to supporting our local communities.
As part of our Partnership, our employees will donate their time in a number of ways supporting Wirral Foodbank over the coming year and we will open up our expertise and resources for Wirral Foodbank to use as part of their ongoing growth and development. We are excited about the opportunity this partnership presents and being able to make a meaningful and positive impact on our communities.
Jamie Sheils, Director at Red Apple Education Ltd said:
'We're delighted to be supporting a local charity in providing a vital service and critical support to thousands of families across Wirral. Our partnership will allow us to raise awareness of the fantastic work that is being done by Wirral Foodbank and our staff will be involved in opportunities to volunteer and raise funds throughout the year. I see this as the start of an ongoing relationship in which our support will evolve with Wirral Foodbank and communities across the Wirral.'
Richard Roberts, Wirral Foodbank Manager said:
“We are always encouraged when local businesses seek us out and offer their support. In 2015 Wirral Foodbank fed and supported 10,676 local people, this included 3,818 children. As a small charity we are reliant on the goodwill of volunteers – the volunteer support offered by Red Apple Education and their expertise in other areas will be invaluable to the ongoing work of Wirral Foodbank. We look forward to working with Red Apple Education, and thank them for choosing Wirral Foodbank as their supported charity.”
