We are proud that Education for the Soul Conference 2018 was partnered by a number of fantastic organisations from the education sector and beyond.
MoneySense is a free, impartial financial education programme from NatWest which offers everything you need to teach 5-18 year-olds about money. It provides access to engaging resources from lesson plans and activity sheets to videos and quizzes which have direct links to DfE subjects. The programme is accredited by Young Money having received the Financial Education Quality Mark and features resources developed in collaboration with nasen to make learning about money more accessible for children with special educational needs and disabilities. Schools can request bank employees to help run free, interactive workshops which allow the students to solve real life, money related issues.
NatWest MoneySense is supporting The Education for the Soul Conference 2018 because we believe that financial education should be available for all children and the earlier we intervene to support teachers and parents with up-to-date information, the better. NatWest MoneySense is a completely free programme, meaning teachers across the UK and Ireland can access high-quality, easy to use resources without having to worry about using valuable school funds – a value we know aligns with that of Integrity Coaching.
IAS Advance were formed in 2015 after their Director of Product Development, Matthew Young, approached the team with some ideas he had developed with his teacher wife after many conversations about her frustrations over the workload involved in tracking and analysing pupil attainment and progress, and the difficulties in squeezing her school’s specific needs into an off the shelf product.
IAS Advance then spent the next 3 years turning these ideas into reality, working closely with a small number of schools to understand common and divergent needs and creating a modular software system which enables them to provide world class bespoke solutions to individual schools at low cost.
They can quickly build assessment systems to fit the unique needs of every school, incorporating formative and summative data frameworks. Their analysis software produces a wide range of reports, visualisations and summaries, but they can also quickly build bespoke versions to suit your needs. They provide solutions which are as unique as your school in order to give you greater insight into attainment and progress while reducing the workload this generates for teachers and senior management.
The Key provides high-quality, trusted information and online solutions to the education and wider public sector. Our market-leading information services, professional development and online platform solutions help busy professionals work with increased confidence, knowledge and capacity.

Our national information services, The Key for School Leaders and The Key for School Governors, support nearly half of schools in England. Members have instant access to impartial information and guidance, practical resources and answers to questions on all aspects of school leadership and management. Our CPD Toolkit of ready-to-deliver training modules provides everything schools need to run high-impact and cost-effective in-house training for teachers, leaders and support staff. Each module is designed to be delivered by staff to staff to support deep learning that drives school improvement.
Eagle Solutions Services (ESS) is a school food consultancy that is passionately using the power of food to improve the education, wellbeing and life-chances of the entire school community.
Keenly aware that food is something that happens every day in every school and yet is often overlooked, ESS works with ambitious, caring savvy school leaders to:
– Increase the tools schools have to engage children’s interest and passion for learning;
– Use food as an integral part of the learning process;
– Take control of their food service in a structured and progressive way to transform the food culture of their schools, saving thousands each year in the process;
– Get more out of their school food while spending less;
– Improve the school’s community, leadership and experience through a joined up approach to school food, food education and dining experiences.
ESS proudly supports the 2018 ‘Education for the Soul’ conference. We support Integrity Coaching as we share their values of ensuring holistic approach to education and we too are passionate about creating new narratives about the journey of the entire school community. Food is an integral part our journey as human beings and we want to see it used more purposefully and excitingly in improving the lives of school children and leaders.
We are proud that Education for the Soul Conference 2018 will be partnered by a couple of fantastic organisations within the education sector.
Teach Well Alliance
The Teach Well Alliance works in partnership with your school to improve teacher retention and reduce spending on supply cover and recruitment. Our unique program, the Teach Well Toolkit, identifies and tackles the causes of stress and Burnout, introducing effective well-being strategies drawn from good practice, including reducing workload. Teachers in schools that have prioritised staff well-being are more likely to want to stay and less likely to want to resign from the profession. They are happier, teach more effectively and are better able to support the mental and emotional health of their pupils. Financial savings on supply cover and recruitment can be diverted to supporting teaching and learning.’
Steve Waters, founder of the Teach Well Alliance, has over four decades’ experience as a teacher, middle and senior leader, and as an educational consultant in two local authorities. He holds the NPQH and is an NPQSL assessor. He has a research-based MA in Education, a professional qualification in Counselling and is a Mental Health First Aider. He also has personal experience of Burnout and understands first-hand the importance of addressing its causes at an organisational level and supporting teachers who are at risk of developing it. He has four children and lives in Manchester.
Creative Play UK
Creative Play is a playground equipment design, manufacture, installation and maintenance specialist that work throughout the UK. We have been installing playground equipment and safety surfacing for more than 25 years and in that time we have built up a huge amount of experience in delivering exciting, innovative outdoor learning environments and sports & recreational facilities.
We look at each playground we develop as a totally unique space that needs to provide children with an area they find exciting, stimulating and safe. We are supporting Education for the Soul as outdoor play contributes largely to the development of children both physically and mentally. We have a team of experienced and knowledgeable advisors that work closely with school staff to support and assist when choosing where to start with their outdoor development and ensure we offer the best professional advice.
Zen Educate is an online alternative to recruitment agencies where schools save money, Teachers/TAs earn more, and a whole lot of unnecessary hassle is cut out of the process.
Zen Educate works by by-passing the typical agency middleman and allowing schools to search and book available Supply Teachers via an online platform – similar to an Airbnb for supply teaching. Schools using Zen Educate have typically had savings of 20-30% on their supply cover costs while teachers cut down significantly on the time and effort spent on managing their supply work.
Zen Educate is backed by prominent education leaders including the former Chief Executive of the NCTL and a former Board Member at the DfE. We work with 250+ schools throughout Greater London helping them achieve better
outcomes for everyone involved.
We are supporting “Education for the Soul” 2018 as we know that schools can have difficulty in finding the right staff and be a great contributor to the pressures felt by leadership. Furthermore, the current system of traditional agencies is inefficient, opaque, and costly to schools. We are making this whole process simpler by using technology and giving control back to schools in choosing the right staff for them.
