Languages exam choice threatened, councils in the mass academisation ‘red zones’ and the complexities of Progress 8; it’s the TES podcast

Join the TES team as they discuss the education world’s biggest stories of the past seven days.

This week we look at what OCR’s decision to dump GCSE and A-levels in modern languages means for schools and the exams industry as a whole. We talk scatter charts as part of an in-depth analysis into the government’s plans for a fully academised system, and we grapple with the fiendishly difficult Progress 8 measure, and ask: “Will anyone understand how it works?” Tune in and enjoy.
