    TD&T103 Talking about the EPI report with Tony Ryan

    After my episode about the EPI report (the state of D&T) I am delighted to be joined by Tony Ryan, chief exec of the Design and Technology Association. Listen to me ask him some awkward questions, his frank replies and honesty about how he feels about the report's findings, plus shares some news about what's next.

    (Update - we recorded this a few weeks ago and D&TA are now in the middle of the events asking for views from head teachers, business and other organisations about D&T.)
