In this week’s episode of the Tes FE podcast, adult education teacher Lou Mycroft speaks with Tes columnist and podcast host Sarah Simons about exploring how pedagogy can be brought to the front and centre of FE.

The pair discusses this week’s Tes FE feature that explores whether teachers in FE are suffering an identity crisis. With the sector now focussed on industrial targets and employment outcomes, their status as expert educators is being diminished. Given the lack of funding and widening pay gap, staff also admit to feeling undervalued. How can FE teachers reclaim their identity and restore the pride in their profession?
