PSI logo

“Parker Smith Inclusion is an ethical, people-focused recruitment consultancy entirely dedicated to SEND. Our mission is to lead the way in SEND recruitment with our team of expertly trained consultants, delivering a value-adding service for everything SEND. Our pioneering transparent fee structure has helped build loyal and trusting partnerships with our schools and education professionals.

Being different is challenging, but in the world of SEND, different means special! Doing things because "it's always been done this way" is not why we're here. In 2021 we created PS Inclusion to positively impact a market that needed change, which is why we have chosen to sponsor the “Champion for Change” award.

We are honoured to partner with Redbridge on such an important event, celebrating the achievements and dedication of our colleagues working in Redbridge schools. We value the time and effort Redbridge LA is putting in to recognise the individuals and teams who have gone the extra mile for our children and young people.”

“We know parents, teachers and children lead very busy lives. And that can mean it’s hard to find time for financial education. With all of this in mind, HSBC UK have developed and supported education programmes across the UK to ensure that young people have access to financial education at home, at school and in their wider community. Therefore we are thrilled to sponsor the Redbridge Education Awards to celebrate the success and the excellent work being carried out.”
