It’s been reported that there seems to be a significant increase in classroom violence and abuse aimed at teachers by pupils and parents over the last few years. Is this a reflection on a society, the way we treat front line workers and how does it compare to other sectors?
With protests from Extinction Rebellion (XR) being in the news throughout the year, I wondered what would be the impact on the professional careers of the teachers who decide to take part?
Edapt supports school staff everyday with issues facing their employment throughout England and Wales. Today is World Mental Health Day #WorldMentalHealthDay with the specific focus this year on suicide prevention.
Around 20% of Edapt subscribers are teaching and working in independent schools. We have supported our independent school subscribers by providing support during allegations, sending accompaniment to grievance and disciplinary hearings to answering questions about pay and working conditions, maternity leave and jury service.
It’s the time of year when many teachers and school staff will be deciding their options when subscribing to a teaching union or edu-legal support such as Edapt (or in some cases both!).
After a summer break which feels like it has gone much too quickly, you come to the realisation that you will have to eventually return to school. For the majority of teachers the first day back will be INSET where you can mentally prepare yourself to transition into ‘school mode.’
Over the last academic year, we have supported more subscribers than ever before achieving a 99% casework satisfaction rating on the quality of support we provide. We always try and achieve the best outcomes for our subscribers while maintaining a high-quality, accessible and personalised service.
