Discovery Schools Academy Trust Launches NEW Education Podcast ‘EduChat’

We are delighted to launch our new podcast which shares stories, development and insight from our schools and trust.

Podcasts are usually recorded radio shows or interviews which can be downloaded onto your computer or phone to listen to at a time that suits you. They are increasingly popular now as they allow listeners to choose the types of content they like to listen to which may include, music, sports, comedy, culture or current affairs. Increasingly we think that it is important to share the work of our trust both with our schools and wider partners,  so we have begun to record our own series of podcasts. Currently we have 2 episodes, each lasting about 40 minutes which you can choose to listen to at your leisure. We are recording new episodes every 2 weeks on a range of themes such as ‘Maths Mastery’, ‘Pupil Wellbeing’, ‘School Governance’, ‘NQT Support’ and ‘Curriculum’ all of which will be released every fortnight for you to download and listen to. For now we have two episodes for you to listen to:

1. The benefits and pitfalls of the Academy system with Paul Stone, CEO.

2. The importance of language development with Mel Carte, Senior Speech and Language Therapist.

Links to these can be found below and feedback and comments are welcome via each podcast platform. (Look out for the logo below)
