TSL EDUCATION GETS a good report from staff whose positive responses to our engagement survey rank it as one of the best companies to work for in the country. Employees believe they can make a valuable contribution to the success of this digital education business, returning an 82% positive score. The 269 staff work across 14 brands, including the TES Connect website, home to the world's largest network of teachers, and its online TES Resources bank containing more than 500,000 lesson plans, in excess of 2m of which are downloaded a week. TSL Education aims to improve standards of education from primary school to university and the independent, private equity-backed award-winning business, which started out more than 100 years ago as a supplement in The Times, engenders pride among staff (80%), who believe it makes a difference to the world (70%). New employees are invited to lunch with the chief executive and at least one TSL business-wide meeting, and the company hosts a “first Thursday” event at a local pub or restaurant. Team success is celebrated with a specially-made cake and last September a summer party was held at the Roof Gardens in Kensington in another show of appreciation for the efforts of staff, whose positive scores place the London-based firm 10th in our Fair Deal category. Just 24 people earn less than £25,000 and 44% make more than £45,000, including web developers. Employees are happy with their pay and benefits (75%) which include free private healthcare and a contributory pension scheme into which TSL adds 11% of pay. Those who have worked for the company for 10 or more years get a financial reward and dinner at the Ivy.

This party was fully paid for by TSL and included a sit down meal, a free bar as well as a live band and a video booth which gave people the opportunity have their 5 mins of fame!

My Company

I believe I can make a valuable contribution to the success of this organisation

TSL are very conscious about the well being of thier employees particularly as they have such a high growth company. They offer the usual well being initiatives such as paid for private healthcare benefit, employee assistance programme and a cycle to work scheme. However their private healthcare benefit is exceptional, their cover includes pre-exisiting conditions. It is great when they are able to offer colleagues with an ongoing health complaint excellent medical cover. This helps remove some of the stress of dealing with the medical condition. Following the feedback from their last years survey they have engaged EnergiseYou to run monthy seminars on a variety of different topics such as nutrition, sleep and how to achieve high energy. They are also looking at other topics such as worklife balance so they can extend this across the year. The new seminars have been well received by colleagues. They also provide free fruit, drinks and smoothies to give colleagues and added boost during the week. They also offer an annual free flu vaccination.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
