How a Jamaican Shakespeare (Jamakespeare?) project is bringing the Bard to diverse audiences http://ow.ly/Q4yw5
The Tempest, William Shakespeare’s swansong play, is set on a bewitchingly beautiful island of yellow sands, wild waves and coral seas. The isle is “full of noises, sounds and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not”. How he would have loved my homeland Jamaica had he ever made the voyage across the sea.

View from @AnnMroz's chair: 'Escaping into a book is the most important journey a primary pupil can make' http://ow.ly/Q4e9J
“I have a passion for teaching kids to become readers, to become comfortable with a book, not daunted,” the great storyteller Roald Dahl once said. “Books shouldn’t be daunting, they should be funny, exciting and wonderful; and learning to be a reader gives a terrific advantage.”

That's it, summer time is finally upon us all! But how can you tell it's coming to a close? #itsendoftermwhen http://ow.ly/PM9TK
The senior leadership team keep telling you it’s not the end of term yet. The government decides to announce a major change to assessment. In your dream you have finished writing all your reports… …then you discover a secret classroom with 30 more students in it. Jake asks if you really do like red wine a lot, like his mum says? Alisha checks that you really do like unicorn earrings "like they sell in Claire’s Accessories" – even though you’re a ...

Supporting the forgotten young people who FE cannot reach http://ow.ly/Q4jTv
Ricardo breaks off from his hour-long football practice to tell me about his day. Having travelled halfway across London in a free minibus, the 16-year-old is spending the morning playing sport. In the afternoon he’ll learn about science and how the muscles in the body work. He much prefers it to the college where he was studying for A-levels. “It’s more relaxed here and fun,” he says. “I was stressed at college. I couldn’t handle the workload an...

Apprentices will miss out on national living wage http://ow.ly/Q1p4T
A new compulsory national living wage for all workers over the age of 25 will not apply to apprentices, TES can reveal. The announcement by chancellor George Osborne in his Budget earlier this month came as a surprise to many. The minimum rate of pay – which will be introduced next April and will apply to all full- and part-time workers aged 25 and above – will start at £7.20 an hour, rising to £9 an hour by 2020.

A light-hearted and interesting read over on the site. LIVE NOW! 'How to dodge other teachers when you're on holiday' http://ow.ly/PM9II
  Get into the teacher mindset If avoiding other teachers is a major holiday priority for you, delve into the teacher’s summer mindset and ask: “What locations are teachers most likely to seek in August?” Opt for places that seem diametrically opposed to the answer.    Head to 18-30 resorts
