About SecEd

SecEd is dedicated to supporting secondary education professionals across the UK.

Launched in April 2003 by MA Education, the independently owned specialist education publisher, part of the Mark Allen Group , SecEd has developed a loyal readership across its print, digital, podcast and events platforms.

SecEd prides itself on being a positive and constructive voice for teachers and school leaders working throughout secondary education across the UK.

Our journalists and writers – many of whom are practising teachers and school leaders – report on a range of issues affecting secondary education, including the latest policy and legislation, educational research and pedagogy, best practice, the latest resources, and any other areas of interest to secondary professionals and practitioners.

We carry a huge range of best practice advice across key areas of secondary school practice, ranging from inspection and leadership to CPD and pedagogy to pastoral and safeguarding and more. Find our best practice content here: www.sec-ed.co.uk/best-practice

Our SecEd blogs also contain the latest comment, analysis and opinion from key educationalists, teachers, school leaders and the SecEd editorial team.

SecEd magazine itself is delivered free of charge to UK secondary schools and is supported by a wealth of additional online content, which is open access and is also distributed via our free bulletins and social media.

The regular SecEd ebulletins deliver the latest education news, best practice and blogs to your inbox free of charge. Everyone can register to receive these bulletins here: www.sec-ed.co.uk/register

And the fortnightly SecEd Podcast offers best practice, advice and ideas across a range of issues relevant to secondary school leaders, teachers and support staff. Each epsiode, we interview two to four experts about their work, offering practical advice to professionals across the country: www.sec-ed.co.uk/podcasts
