We discuss the Tes Person of the Year – former NAHT heads' union leader and the new boss of Teach First, Russell Hobby – and our nine runners-up.
Our top 10 most influential figures in education this year range from Ofsted chief inspector Amanda Spielman to Varndean School's resident pygmy goats.
We talk about why these figures were selected and also discuss some of the most significant education stories of the year.
Tune in and enjoy.
