Are you a supply teacher or teaching assistant looking for some help and advice? If so, you are in the right place. Our blogs offer tips and tricks on everything from classroom management to interview tips and support, along with day in the life case studies from real supply teachers, ECTs and cover supervisors. They also give you an insight into what working for Smile is like, the ways which we support local communities and charities and the training and events that we offer.
We are so excited to announce our partnership with Smart Works Birmingham. Smart Works Birmingham is a local charity that serves women across the midlands, making sure they have the clothes, coaching and confidence to help them get the job.
So, what does that mean for you? Well, if you are currently unemployed, looking for work in a school and want to register with us, we can refer you to Smart Works who will be able to provide you with clothes for your interview, coaching and five items of clothing once you’ve secured a role.
Since launching five years ago, the charity has supported over 1500 women as they prepare for their job interviews. Better still 67% of the women they’ve helped have gone on to get the job!
We’ve already been able to refer several candidates to Smart Works, following a successful SWAP course with South City College Birmingham and look forward to continuing to work with this fantastic charity more going forward.
If this is a service that you are interested in, please speak with your consultant who will be able to check your eligibility and inform you of the next steps.
