Teacher Perks

The Project

Teacher Perks gives teachers, education staff, and schools access to exclusive perks and big discounts from some of the UK's biggest brands. They do this as a thank you for allowing them to send educational communications, news, offers, and discounts from select partners.

Teacher Perks Home

The perks are categorised and easily searchable. The javascript search feature makes it very easy and user friendly to find the best perks quickly and easily. It works great on mobile too!

Each perk is hand selected by the staff and will either provide the user with a unique code or a link to redeem their discount, voucher or freebie. For documents, assets or downloadable items the download link is provided.

The back-end allows the site administrators to manage all the perks, import perks from providers, manage the members and view transaction lists. It also pulls in transactions from affiliate network links in order to keep track of conversions and commissions.

Plenty of reporting is also built in, so the admins can see on an hourly basis how many members are on the site, which perks are most popular and see transactions in real time.

The Technology Stack

Teacher Perks uses the Sprint Campus UK Education API to allow teachers to search for their schools and to ensure access only to teachers and not to the general public.

The application is built in PHP with Laravel, the front-end has a great deal of Javascript/jQuery in order to provide a great user experience while browsing the site. We use beanstalkd as a message queue for the event-driven parts of the application, including member tracking, conversion reporting and complex import / export functionality.
