The SecEd Podcast – which recently celebrated its one year anniversary – has been awarded the title of Best Education Podcast 2021.

The award has been given by Learning Ladders and was decided upon by a panel featuring teachers, school leaders, edtech entrepreneurs and others.

The Best Education Podcast 2021 Award has been designed to save busy teachers and school leaders time when searching for the best, most useful educational podcasts.

The judging panel, which included Learning Ladders’ founder, Matt Koster-Marcon, who is also chair of the EdTech Special Interest Group at the British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA), produced a final winning shortlist of 47 podcasts, including The SecEd Podcast.

The SecEd Podcast launched in April 2020 and focuses on best practice advice both in the classroom and across the school. We recently celebrated our one-year anniversary and in that time have published 29 episodes.
