I've worked for 'Smile' for nearly a year now and am more than satisfied with them. They listen carefully to my needs and cater for me excellently. As someone who uses public transport, they always strive to find me local schools (who I regularly return to).


I regularly recommend Smile to anyone that would be suitable for supply work and give examples of how effective Smile has been in my own career progression; including the commitment from staff and lovely relationships built.


I don't think I would enjoy my job so much if it wasn't for Emma and smile’s agency.  From day one she has made me feel welcome and Emma is very polite and easy to get on with. I feel I can phone Emma with any problems I have and I am always guaranteed a reply the same day.


Smile as a company have been great at being helpful and communicating regularly.  Emma was honest and friendly and really gave me a personal service catered to my personal needs – texting me details as it is easier to reply and read while at work or on the go. 


You found me a school that is 3 miles from where I live, and which suited me perfectly. The children, staff and parents are fantastic. I felt valued and part of the team at Langley Primary School, Oldbury. All the consultants I have dealt with have been friendly and listen to what my school requirements are.


Thank you for having me, it was a pleasure to work for you. Smile has made it possible for me to further my career and gain valuable experience in a variety of schools. Katy is amazing, friendly, helpful and excellent at her job




Cover Supervisor Training

Smile Education aims to get regular feedback from our supply staff regarding training needs. One that came up from the majority of cover supervisors was how useful in-house training would be to improve their classroom management and ability to think on their feet in situations where no classwork had been set.

From this we designed a training package tailored around cover supervisors looking to develop their careers and eventually undertake a PGCE or similar teacher training course. This training is designed to be the first step to developing themselves into successful teachers.

The course is presented by a secondary consultant at Smile with 10 years' teaching experience who has also worked as a head of year. This experience enables him to have a thorough insight into the day to day challenges of not only the classroom but general school conduct.  The two hour course covers three main areas:


  • The School Day
  • Professional Conduct
  • Behaviour Management


The Behaviour Management section is the part of the course with the most in depth content and covers areas such as engagement, entry to the classroom, positive behaviour management and using consequences effectively. We also look at real life scenarios and the best way to react to difficult situations.

The feedback we have received from the training sessions has been excellent, with 100% of cover supervisors confirming that their confidence has been improved by the course. Other feedback included;

“The personal scenario advice was very useful, the course was well presented with lots of great ideas”

“I learnt more than I expected and I feel more prepared for entering a cover role and will be planning my own techniques”

We will be running training sessions during each half term holiday and would love as many of our cover supervisors to attend as possible! Why attend?


  • Professional training looks great on your CV and for teacher training applications
  • You can take away resources and ideas for lessons to make your classroom more interactive
