Sometimes I get the opportunity to interview someone and I just can't turn it down, on the other hand it doesn't fit the the term's theme so I have created this page especially for these interview gems. They are all here for you to listen to. Enjoy!

I am excited to be partnering with British Psychological Society who also provide resources for teachers which can be found here.
Education for all was created in a very different era and many argue that it is now not fit for purpose. Does education prepare us for the collaborative, agile and rapidly changing work place? Psychology informs the workplace as much as it informs education, but what lessons can education learn from the tech landscape - do we teach youngsters to take risks, learn through experimentation and to be lifelong learners? This conversation with Andrew Kidd dares us to think differently about the future of education.
In this bonus episode Simona Skripkauskaite talks to me about the results coming from the CoSpace Study. In September Professor Cathy Creswell shared the findings from the first school closure and this episode updates the findings and considers what schools might need to have in place or be looking out for as pupils return to school.
You can hear the original episode with Prof. Creswell here and find out more about CoSpace at cospaceoxford.org
Professor Tamsin Ford is an internationally renowned Child Psychiatric Epidemiologist who researches the organisation, delivery, and effectiveness of services and interventions for children and young people’s mental health. In this interview we talk about the Mental Health picture for Young People in the UK, the effects of Covid-19, how schools can implement best practice, SEND and so much more.
Sonia Guerriero works for UNESCO, where she leads research, strategic development, and implementation of international projects that support developing countries to improve learning outcomes through better teacher education. This interview explores teacher training and development, how teaching is regarded as a profession and how we might encourage teachers to stay in the profession. Sonia's understanding of the global picture of teaching is phenomenal and she offers some fascinating insights for anyone in the profession - from those just starting their training right through to senior leaders. Links to Sonia's Publications from the OECD can be found here:

Over the holidays I asked psychology students from Bootham School in York if they would like to make some short podcasts about psychology that teachers might be interested in. To start us off we have Maddy who talks about her interest in social psychology and cross curricular opportunities.
Welcome to the second of the Bootham School’s Psychology in the Classroom Christmas Takeover podcasts. This week Libby talks about meditation - she is open and honest about her beliefs and experiences of meditation, why she tried it and, whilst recognising that her experience may not be representative, is keen to encourage you to give it a go.
