From education to employment

Back to School with Twinkl 


Helping Those Who Teach

As the new academic year approaches, educators worldwide are gearing up for the return to the classroom. In a year that has presented unprecedented challenges for educators , Twinkl is stepping in to ensure a smooth transition back to school. Designed to support teachers, parents, teaching assistants, childminders, tutors and home educators alike, Twinkl’s wide array of resources promises to make the start of the academic year a little bit easier.

Fulfilling Twinkl’s Mission: Unwavering Support for Educators

This commitment goes further than a single season, as Twinkl seeks to provide continuous support to educators during the Back to School period and beyond. Regardless of their role – whether teaching assistants, tutors, childminders, parents, or school teachers – educators will find resources and tools to support them throughout their daily tasks.

Leon Smith, Chief Customer Officer at Twinkl, explains:

“We’re right there beside our amazing educators, giving them the tools they need to thrive. As the Back to School season takes centre stage, we’re here to make sure teachers feel confident, valued, and all set to create a really positive learning space. Teachers are the real heroes, nurturing young minds and sparking curiosity. At Twinkl, we’re here to support them every step of the way, so that they feel empowered and well-prepared to make learning an awesome experience for their students.”

With teacher strikes ending in England, after all four unions in a dispute with the government accepted a 6.5% pay rise, the Back to School period this year is a time of renewed hope and positivity for educators to focus on what they do best – teaching.
