Testimonials

How did we help The Key to find examples of flexible working brilliance?

 

'Amazing, thanks Lucy! I’ll research these schools today and let you know ASAP. 

Love the new email signature re: flexible working too! Looks like I caught you at a really exciting time for the project…can’t wait to keep my eye on it and see how everything unfolds!'

How did our Return to Teaching Workshop participants feel?

The host of today's workshop was informative and welcoming.  She was very experienced with a lovely, empathetic approach.  I feel more confident with the skills and experience I can bring to the classroom and the workshop enabled me to reflect on steps I need to take.

Why is normalising flexible working important to school leaders?

  

'I think what you are doing is exactly what is needed to revolutionise the profession. Teacher wellbeing should be a priority and flexible working is one of the ways to achieve this.'

How did we prepare teachers returning to the classroom after an extended break?
