Why Tes is changing

You’ll notice that Tes looks a little different this week. This is an exciting moment as we unveil a new look, a revamped website and a fresh redesign for our magazine.

TES reveals new data highlighting schools’ recruitment issues

The latest TES Teacher Recruitment Index report tracks how successful secondary schools in England have been at recruiting, by subject and region. We found that schools filled a higher proportion of vacant posts during the Easter 2016 period than in any Easter period since 2012. However, the index also highlighted that schools are less happy with the calibre of teaching candidates, down from 79 per cent in 2015 to 71 per cent now. So despite some success with recruitment, there are growing worries this rise is at the expense of teacher quality. What can schools do to help combat the quality issue and attract top talent?

A digital marketplace for everyone, including teachers?

Scaling a two–sided marketplace is among the most daunting tasks for entrepreneurs. It can also be the most rewarding one. It takes time to build both supply and demand, and requires significant volume to drive meaningful revenue and get the fly wheel running. But the barriers are falling—and the implications for education may be profound.

The TES Institute Introduces Draft CPD Standards for Teachers

With little to no formal guidance available on how teachers can, and should, use professional development, the TES Institute has created our own draft set of teacher CPD standards within a progressive framework. We’ll be using these standards within our own course development and delivery, but our standards are designed to help any teachers and schools.

Efficacy research: OER and teacher generated resources

In 2014, researchers from Stanford University conducted a survey of nearly ten thousand teachers who buy or sell education resources on, the largest online community of teachers with more than 8 million users. The goal of the survey was to determine the “social value” of online resources – that is, whether the materials obtained through the online marketplace helped teachers improve their lessons and stay engaged in their work.
