Connection and talking to one another during these times is vitally important for our well-being. It can feel lonely working from home and you might feel disconnected from your colleagues and school communities. That is why we are launching online webinars from next week for teachers, school staff and anyone interested in education.
We know that the Coronavirus pandemic will be a worrying time and you will be concerned about your role, income, family as well as supporting your pupils and wider school community. There will be a number of challenges faced across society over the coming months.
Today we are celebrating World Book Day and having a competition for school staff to win a £15 book voucher. As former teachers at Edapt, we enjoy reading a wide range of books and there can be no better gift than getting stuck into a good novel.
We receive at least a few calls every week where a member of staff is seeking immediate support because of an incident in school but they are not a subscriber to Edapt or have access to support through a teaching trade union, or other service.
Teaching in London will be a rewarding and unique opportunity for many teachers. With the draws of living and working in a world capital, great schools and the added reassurance of salary weighting, is it a no-brainer for those eager to have a long-term career in teaching?
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!).
Today we are announcing the launch of our new referral programme for all subscribers. For every colleague you refer, you will receive £10 credit to your account reducing your subscription cost for future months.
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?
