News Podcast: The highs and lows of remote teaching

The Tes news team on how teachers have coped with lockdown learning this first half of term

Tes News podcast 26 February 2021: Schools reopening, Covid catch-up and GCSE grading

Join the Tes news team as we talk about the trials and tribulations of remote teaching – as revealed in the results from a Tes survey of more than 7,000 teachers.

It reveals that two-thirds of teachers are coping with remote teaching either OK or better, while live lessons are the most popular option.

Respondents also reveal some of the highlights and pitfalls.  

We also discuss the latest news on education catch-up commissioner Sir Kevan Collins, including how he said there needs to be more cash for Covid catch-up, how his advice to ministers will be entirely his own and how he will have no role in deciding how GCSE and A-level grades are awarded.

We end with a story of how teachers are being coached to behave like athletes in lockdown by a former world champion.
