Do teachers feel equipped to understand and support young people’s mental health?

At Edapt, from time to time we are contacted by PhD researchers and Masters students who are completing research and conducting questionnaires about the teaching profession. Where possible, we like to support by providing a platform so that school staff can see if they would like to contribute towards new studies. 

International Women’s Day 2024

At Edapt, the majority of our subscribers are women, reflecting the profession as a whole. As an organisation where we value ourselves on providing high-quality employment support for all school staff we understand the importance of International Women’s Day (March 8) as a global day celebrating the social, economic and cultural achievements of women.

Political views and discussions in the classroom

At the current time there is lots on the political horizon in which teachers may wish to engage pupils’ interest. We have a General Election coming into view, analysis of the budget taking place, industrial action in education being raised and on top of that, Local Elections. There is lots of scope for well rounded, informative and educational debate.

Teacher resignation dates

It’s that time of the year when we receive lots of enquiries from our subscribers about teacher resignation dates. As explained in our support article on the topic, The Burgundy Book outlines the terms and conditions for handing in your notice in maintained schools.
