Welcome to the third episode of our What Matters in Edtech series, supported by Bett. This series is all about the things that matter in education, and how and when tech might help. 

What's in this episode?

This week’s episode is all about Wellbeing. Released this year, the Teacher Wellbeing Index 2019 highlighted stress and rising mental health issues across the sector. According to the index, 78% of all education professionals have experienced either behavioural, psychological or physical symptoms due to their work, with 60% not feeling confident that they could talk about mental health issues with their colleagues. 

In this episode, you will hear from a range of school leaders and teachers, wellbeing experts and coaches about what can and is being done to support an everyday approach to self, student and staff care. 

You can follow the conversation using #edtechpodcast and #Bett2020

Welcome to the next episode of our #voctechpodcast series!

This week I’m in conversation with David Shull, Head of Handshake UK and Europe. Handshake work to make the student employability space or “bridge to work” better. In this episode, recorded earlier in the year, David and I chat about starting Handshake, the pain points for employers aiming to recruit students, and creating more opportunities for students no matter where they are located. 

We also have some snippets from Ian Hurd, who was out and about at the recent Ufi Voctech Showcase, chatting to MegaNexus, Nissan and Pembrokeshire College.

Welcome to this first episode of our newest series, What Matters in Edtech, supported by Bett. This series is all about the things that matter in education, and how and when tech might help. 

What's in this episode?

In the first episode, we are looking at Inclusion and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). 

We look at those working across teaching, learning and research supporting those with special educational needs and disabilities. We look at how their efforts are making way for better identification of learning needs, better innovation in assistive technology, and more inclusion in the classroom, at a time when grade pressure is charged with marginalising SEND learners.

Thank you to Bett for supporting this series.
