Issue 118 of QA Education

We’re at the start of a new academic year – and after the sports teams have been formed, the long-term plans handed out and the volunteers sought for this term’s trips, there looms the question: how are we going to fit everything into one year? Every new year poses a mammoth task for teachers and we’re here to help you stay abreast of the latest in education news and resources.

We have a great insight into one popular destination for school trips – the Natural History Museum in London. Fresh from the Horrible Histories blockbuster movie hit of this summer, in this issue we learn from the institution’s Beth Stone how three-year- olds are using complex language to discuss fossils and why technology is inspiring a fresh curiosity for the past.

As careers advisors are urged to seek out collaborations with school alumni, Future First’s Beth Goddard explains why former pupils who are just a few years older than current students are ideally placed to advise on what steps to take to get a fantastic start to the world of work.

We have edtech contributions from Siemens, Eton X and Jamf, as well as all the usual news and views on every aspect of education from music to parental engagement. Our advertisers bring a wealth of useful, tried and tested school products and services – as well as some new innovations which will help to make school life run that bit more smoothly.

So enjoy the read and don’t forget to stay connected while on the move, by visiting the QA Education website and following us on social media. We love hearing about your school so tag us in all of your highlights this term – including the trips!
