Big Change

We recently released a report with IPPR detailing how Covid-19 has disrupted learning in an unprecedented way, and how we might rethink educational priorities to build back better. This means preparing children for life, not just exams & tackling inequalities outside, as well as inside, the classroom. Have a read here: https://www.ippr.org/research/publications/the-new-normal

Integrity Coaching 


NEU to Support New Headteachers and Aspiring Heads

Over the last 12 months, the pressures of being a Headteacher have grown exponentially.

The NEU has recognised this and so alongside Integrity Coaching, have designed a new heavily subsidised, Early Headship Programme for aspiring Headteachers and those in the early stages of Headship.

Consisting of expert 1:1 coaching and bespoke leadership development sessions, the programme has been designed to provide highly personalised support for those who are stepping up into Headship and learning how to shape the role and make it their own.

Supply Well

Here at SupplyWell we are celebrating being winners as we have been recognised as one of the ten most exciting early-stage technology companies in the UK as part of a prestigious competition run by national growth platform, Tech Nation! The Rising Stars competition is the only national early-stage tech scaleup competition in the UK, designed to showcase the most exciting companies at Seed to pre-Series A from all areas of the country. As a top ten winner, SupplyWell beat stiff competition from over 330 UK companies and is now recognised as a company that is at the very forefront of UK technology.

Our CEO, Michael Heverin worked as a teacher for 15 years, eventually the pressure and stress of the profession took a toll on Michael’s mental health resulting in his departure from the education sector. However, recognising that there needed to be a fundamental change in the way schools and recruitment agencies functioned to support the needs of teaching staff, Michael co-founded SupplyWell with recruitment specialist Raina Heverin and marketer and technologist Dan Price in 2019. Today, SupplyWell is a successful EdTech company run by teachers for teachers. It prides itself on ensuring that the happiness and wellbeing of educators and supply staff is at the forefront of its ethos and operations. In using the SupplyWell platform, schools across the Liverpool City Region are saving significant sums of money, reducing teacher absence, whilst improving teacher pay and wellbeing. On average the Rising Stars winners go on to raise £352k after the competition and grow their workforce by 70%, something which SupplyWell’s team of co-founders hope to achieve as a result of the national recognition they’ve gained. SupplyWells Thoughts Our Co-Founder & CEO Michael said: “It is a massive privilege to be recognised by TechNation as one of the Top Ten Rising Star Tech Companies in the UK. Only 18 months ago, we were a small start-up company operating from one desk. We have grown immensely since then and now employ almost a dozen staff with immediate plans to hire more as we look to expand across the UK.

What’s more, we’ve not only survived, but thrived despite the challenges of the pandemic. “It was my personal experiences as a teacher that has shaped and underpinned SupplyWell’s ‘tech for good’ ethos. We are serious about the problems we are solving in education and we hope this award will enable us to help even more schools, teachers and students.” More about TechNation Rising Stars Tech Nation is the growth platform for tech companies and leaders.
