Are you a supply teacher, teaching assistant or residenital support worker looking for some help and advice? If so, you are 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, NQTs 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.
Inclusivity is one of our key values as a teaching agency and we wanted to find a way to celebrate this with our colleagues. That’s why going forward we have decided to do our own spin on Pride 365.
Pride 365 is an organisation focused on bringing greater visibility to the best and most authentic supporters of the LGBTQIA+ community. They also want to stop companies monetizing from the community by only showing support during Pride Month and have a seal of approval for the companies that continue to show support throughout the year
We believe that the LBGTQIA+ and other minority communities deserve to be supported all year round, not just during pride months, so each month we will focus on a different group to raise awareness within our business. The next few months are going to celebrate LGBTQIA+ History Month, Black History (there’s no harm in being early) and a month to raise awareness for those with learning and physical disabilities.
This month is LGBTQIA+ History Month and we have decided to wear bright colours on the 16th and 17th to show our support. We will also have a quiz each day, to further our knowledge, hosted by our very own “Quiz-Master” Luke. Make sure you keep a lookout for the pictures of our colourful clothes and to find out who our lucky quiz winners are.
