Join the TES team as they discuss the week’s biggest education news and views, including Natasha Devon’s “dumping” by the Department for Education as its mental health tsar. We talk about school minister Nick Gibb’s clanger on the radio when he got a grammar question wrong live on air. We hear how teachers would rather small class sizes to pay rises. And we talk porky-pies and the minefield that is the employer’s reference. Tune in and enjoy.
