Think you’re the perfect teacher? Think again!

Now don’t take this the wrong way, but you’re not perfect. No one is! Perfection is something we all strive to achieve in one way or another. Whether it’s hitting the gym to trim up for summer, learning a new hobby to expand your mind or having a big social following online, we all do something to improve ourselves every day.

But have you thought about perfection in teaching? Would you consider yourself ‘the perfect teacher’? The perfect teacher would probably get all of their student marking returned within a few days, keep a lovely and fresh-looking tidy classroom, and wouldn’t spend their entire weekend in pyjamas planning lessons and marking. Hmmmm.


Now there’s nothing wrong with admitting that you need a little help sometimes. Have you noticed your struggling to engage disengaged students in your class? Or are you spending too much time focusing on those students instead of the whole class? We’ve got a free class on “Engaging the Disengaged Student” that can help you identify the best ways to go about this while keeping a balance in your classroom. Are you finding yourself worrying about lesson observations or parents evenings? Guess what? We have a free class on how to prepare for both! Do you find utilizing data difficult when predicting grades for students in your classroom? That’s okay, lots of people do – that’s why we created a free class which covers “understanding predicted grades”.


Our approach to support starts with a free career planning session, no matter your location or experience. This allows us to not only get to know your strengths but to get to know your weaknesses too. Quality recruitment begins with understanding unique needs and helping people when possible. We value feedback from our schools greatly, it’s a tool we use to identify when a teacher might need a little extra help upskilling in something. Happy teacher > happy school.

Continued Professional Development

We help our teachers by running Continued Professional Development classes. Our CPD is an ongoing program which covers all sorts of gains. We’ve got 26 events coming up over the next term. There’s something for every teacher, in every sector.
