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


Induction Year

During the induction period, NQTs can work supply while completing induction part time at a school.
Teachers employed in the UK must have completed an induction year following the completion of their degree. NQTs must have completed their teacher training and achieved QTS before starting their induction period.


The induction year is the transition year between the completion of teacher training and starting a career as a qualified teacher. The purpose is to ensure that all qualified teachers are trained and aware of UK standards in teaching, and that they have the necessary tools to effectively teach across the key stages.

To complete their induction, NQTs must be have a teaching position in a relevant school with a head teacher that can assess their performance to government standards. The head teacher must register the NQT with the appropriate governing body.

The head teacher appoints a mentor to the NQT to help monitor and assess during induction. At a school, NQTs must be given time to complete both PPA (planning, preparing, assessment) as well as activities related to their induction programme.

One term is the minimum amount of time that can be counted towards induction. When working part time, then the NQT will need to complete the full time equivalent (e.g. working half a work week for a term is counted as half of a full time equivalent, thus requiring 6 terms to complete induction in total).
