One of my best friends is a teacher………….

I’ve known Ed since about 1976. Over the years, and in several inner city locations, he’s been a head of dep’t, head of year and head of sixth form.  Vastly experienced and with a bit of a reputation as a “hard man” when it comes to classroom discipline.

Every now and then he moans about the number of students who turn up for his lessons without a pen, pencil, ruler, rubber etc. He reckons it can waste up to ten minutes of teaching time while they try to borrow what they need for the lesson.

So what can be done to reduce the  wasted time and disruption caused by pupils who turn up to lessons without the proper equipment?

One helpful product which can make life easier for students and teachers alike is the “Student Essentials set.”

Consisting of three quality black ink pens, two full length HB pencils, a metal sharpener, eraser and a 15 cm ruler, all packed in a clear plastic “exam friendly” zip-up wallet, from just 75p ex vat.  They are ideal to give or maybe sell to students at the start of a school day or at the start of lessons.

The “Student Essentials set” can be a means of ensuring that lessons will be less of a hassle and more productive in the future than they may have been in the past.

The “Student Essentials set” can be obtained from Signpost Educational Ltd., ( PO Box 999, London, E14 6SH or visit their website (
