Education Testimonials

TAP’s social thanking platform is making a real difference to the well-being of those working in education, especially important given the significant challenges around staff recognition, recruitment and retention.

As a Trust we have put in a number of well-being initiatives and believe that TAP could be a key tool that we can utilize for improving the well-being and morale of staff. Everyone likes to feel thanked and valued and TAP will allow us the opportunity to be able to do this in a meaningful way. We are really looking forward to utilizing TAP to be able to just a say a little thank you to the amazing staff that work across all of our Trust provisions

a huge privilege to work alongside such talented, compassionate and hardworking professionals at St.Peter’s.

However, without flourishing adults, there will be few flourishing children.

Well-being at Cranbury College is crucial to the development of staff and students. The environment we work in can be emotionally challenging and it is important that staff have the resilience and resources to support some of the most vulnerable children in our community. It’s not just about the incredible outcomes we help our students achieve, that make it worthwhile but the positive feedback we receive from them, their parents and guardians, that is the most rewarding. Our staff deserve to know how valued they truly are and that is why we are using TAP to make this happen,

At Al Ain English Teaching School, we believe that the biggest asset we have for our children’s learning, is our teachers. In current times, our teachers, like teachers all over the world, are working longer and harder, and deserve every encouragement and ounce of praise as they ensure the continuity of learning for all. TAP is a great way to allow members of the school community to thank our staff in the school, helping to raise staff welfare and motivate them even further.

Andrew Thomas, Executive Principal, Al Ain English Speaking School

Praise is so important and provides the kind of positive experience or uplift that can increase someone’s self-confidence and self-esteem. TAP provides us with the opportunity for our staff to express their appreciation of each other, making you feel you are a valued member of the team and in turn creating a positive environment to work in. Every school should use TAP to support staff member’s mental health and well-being”

Jessie Hay, Director of Finance and Resources for Honiton Community College

To receive an unexpected message of thanks from a parent really does generate a huge smile, and in this current world of negativity it shows that there is nothing better for your mental health than reading a kind word of thank or praise”

Teaching Assistant, Primary School

TAP gives families an opportunity to express their appreciation to teachers. So often teachers are at the front line for parental complaints. It is important for them to realise these are outweighed by support for their efforts and commitment. Recruiting teachers is becoming increasingly more difficult. TAP provides a way of raising the profession’s profile and value in society. It motivates the team and supports a positive ethos. TAP is an effective and welcome addition to any school’s ethos and staff well-being programme.
