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.
Working in education means we deal with a variety of different people every day and are passionate about promoting and celebrating diversity. This is why we couldn't help but get involved with LGBTQIA+ History Month.
To bring greater visibility to LGBT+ history we got colourful. All of our staff wore their brightest and most colourful clothes, celebrating all of the different colours in the flag. Fun fact - did you know each colour within the flag has a different meaning, for example, red is for life and orange is for healing.
What better way to bring awareness than a quiz?

One of our favourite quiz sections was “Queer Activist or TV character” where all of our favourite queer characters and activists came up, the powerful Marsha P Johnson and Erik from Sex Education were the most notable figures and were well-received amongst the team
Our mystery prize went to our winners Kelly and Kristen and our runner ups were Chelsea, Louise and Ellie with 26 points!
