Times Educational Supplement


Times Educational Supplement

The "Times Educational Supplement" ("TES") is a weekly UK publication covering the world of primary, secondary and further education, as well as teaching job vacancies.

History

The Times Educational Supplement was first published in 1910 as a pull-out supplement in "The Times" newspaper. Such was its popularity that in 1914, the supplement became an independent weekly publication selling for 1 penny.cite web | title = Company Profile | work = TSL Education Ltd website | publisher = TSL Education Ltd | url = http://www.tsleducation.com/company_profile.asp | accessdate = 2007-01-06 ] By 1999, a separate group of News International - "Times Supplements Limited" - was restructured to create TSL Education Ltd, at this stage also publishing the "Times Higher Education Supplement", and "Nursery World". In October 2005, the group was sold to Exponent, a private equity group, who in turn sold it to Charterhouse in May 2007. November 2006 saw a re-launch of the newspaper's appearance and content, both offline and online, as it became a full-colour publication in its print version.

Today

The Editor is Gerard Kelly and the deputy editor is Alan Thomson. Alternative versions of the publication are produced for Wales and Scotland, named "TES Cymru" (edited by Nicola Porter) and "TESS" (edited by Neil Munro) respectively.

The newspaper continues to be published weekly on Fridays, at a cover price of £1.30. It has continued to combine its print publication with its online presence, particularly in connection with its employment vacancies. Circulation figures for the first half of 2008 show an average net circulation per issue of 57,714, with 98.2% of these being sold in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.cite web | title = ABC Data (Times Educational Supplement) | work = Audit Bureau of Circulations website | publisher = Audit Bureau of Circulations | url = http://www.abc.org.uk/cgi-bin/gen5?runprog=nav/abcdata&c=&o=&menuid=abcdata|qdsearch|bytitle&type=ind&ref=92341|01012008|30062008 accessdate = 2008-08-20] Data from the National Readership Survey suggests that average monthly readership is around 397,000, of which around 90% are in the ABC1 category.cite web | title = General Magazines | work = NRS website | publisher = National Readership Survey | url = http://www.nrs.co.uk/top_line_readership| accessdate = 2008-08-20]

The TES website is now split into distinct sections, including 'Community', 'Jobs' and 'Resources'. Community contains Staffroom forums. Jobs is home to all the vacancies listed in the TES paper and is updated daily. In the Resource section there is the Resource Bank in which teachers upload classroom resources (lesson plans, PowerPoint presentations, IWB resources, etc.) to share with other teachers. The Review Bank is home to a database of educational products (books, software, classroom equipment). An electronic archive of TES news articles relating to education and published since 1994 is also available.

The TES has published a succession of colour magazines supporting the newspaper - starting with Primary which was later spun off to become a free standing title under the editorship of Diane Hofkins, then Teacher and Friday and now The TES Colour Magazine.
