This is the free We Are In Beta Podcast Newsletter - written by me, Niall Alcock. We - the education community - Are In Beta - always learning. Sign up to learn how school leaders are tackling big issues in schools.
For many of you today is the last day of this half term. Here’s to a well earned break. You deserve it.
If you’ve been a subscriber for a while - thank you. If you’re one of the many who joined us over the summer and this term while we’ve been recording and editing Series 2 - welcome aboard! If you’re new to We Are In Beta, join us.
Series 1 was a blast to make. The response has been amazing. It blows my mind people would put together threads about the show, like Ryan’s at the bottom of this post.
We were honoured to be featured in Penny’s Podcasts of the Week recently. Thank you, Penny and Schools Week. Link to the article below.
If you haven’t listened to all the episodes in Series 1, you can catch up by listening to the archive.
Now, you might be asking, ‘Who is we?’ Good question.
I’ve teamed up with an amazing podcast producer - Jay - who helps me find stories, interview guests and edit the episodes. You’ll get to meet him in the Series 2 trailer, which drops this Sunday - please share it far and wide when it does. You’ll get to hear more from him, and his ability to ask the most soul searching questions, as Series 2 unfolds.
What’s that?! Series 2 is about to unfold?
If the subject wasn’t a complete spoiler... Yes. It. Is.
On Sunday 27th October we’ll be releasing the first episode of the 2nd Series of the We Are In Beta Podcast. Put it in your diaries.
Not only have we got a new producer, we’ve got a new format and a new logo.
Over the next 10 days I’ll be sharing more including a trailer and some nuggets from the first episode via Twitter. Follow me there to stay up to date.
If you like what we do and you want it to continue, please share generously. If Twitter’s not your thing, email this to your colleagues and ask them to subscribe.
Not only will they get a healthy dose of positivity and a great podcast every week about how school leaders tackle the big challenges, they’ll get all of our guests’ research and book recommendations, the services they absolutely couldn’t do without and links to the policies and internal documents they talk about in their episodes.
As a thank you, you’ll also be able to promote vacancies, events and more via the community news. Link below.
