The latest edition of education’s favourite podcast

news pod Jan 24

Join the Tes editorial team as we discuss next year's proposed teacher pay rise and how the government hopes it will improve recruitment at a time when more teachers are needed to cope with growing pupil numbers. 

We also look at whether schools will be able to afford it – despite the government's promise to increase funding by £7.1 billion over the next three years.

And we talk about the ongoing row between Ofsted and the leaders of major MATS, and how the introduction of free period products in schools this week will impact on girls' education.
