    How to get the most from Interventions...

    How to get the most from Interventions...

    Episode 87: This week on TDaPE, I'm joined by Adam Smith @MrSmithRE, Elliot Morgan @MorgsEd and Neil Almond @Mr_AlmondED for a very special edition of the podcast - recorded live and in person for the very first time. As we finish our mini-series of episodes with a focus on our preparations for the new academic year, we decided to use the time for an in-depth exploration of interventions and how we can get the most from them from the minute we return to school.

    What makes a good intervention? How do we assess the quality of an intervention? When should interventions take place? We answer all of these questions and more in another episode with the potential to wear out your note-taking pencil. Whether you're new to the profession or an experienced senior leader, you won't want to miss this one.

    We used the time in the studio to record a special episode for our Ko-Fi supporters, during which we shoot the education breeze, make crystal ball predictions for 2022/23 and begin to put things into Education Room 101 before what we thought was an infinite session was terminated. When that episode is ready you'll find a notification in our discord. A link to which can be found below.

Valuable Insights

I am quite new to the podcast and am ‘binge’ listening to catch up. I have been a primary teacher for over 30 years and still learn something new every episode. Keep up the good work.

Love it

This shoe just improves and becomes more informative and on point with each new episode. These guys really have their finger on the pulse of what is going on in school and there is always a lot to take away and think about. I really like the accessible, humble and friendly manor between the hosts too. Listening to the podcast feels like you are in a pub with mates. Highly recommend

Inspiring and thought-provoking

I’ve been really enjoying listening to this podcasts. The host and guests have interesting views on the Education White Paper that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed listening to. As a senior leader, currently on maternity leave but due to start a deputy headship in the Autumn, I’ve loved refreshing my knowledge and listening to views about current developments in education. A fab podcast - thank you.
