What is TES magazine

TES has been the world's leading publication for teachers for more than a hundred years.

Over that time it has kept teachers informed of the latest issues affecting schools, and new approaches to teaching practice from around the globe.

Each issue of TES magazine contains:

  • practical ways teachers can improve their lessons
  • features by award-winning journalists on the biggest developments in education
  • international job listings for schools; and
  • links to dozens of free teaching resources to download and use in the classroom.

The magazine has long been available to print subscribers in the UK, US, Australia, Canada and other countries. Now everyone can read it on Friday, the day it is published, in one of its digital editions.

If you only know TES as a resource-sharing site, it is time you tried the magazine for teachers that started it all.

The story so far

TES began in 1910 as the Times Educational Supplement (you can read the first edition here). Yet it was only a supplement within The Times newspaper for four years, becoming a separate, stand-alone publication for teachers in 1914.

From its very first issue it showed a fascination with different approaches to teaching, not just in Britain, but in other parts of Europe and beyond.

Today, as well as producing the weekly magazine, TES journalists also write regular news blogs providing up-to-the-minute analysis on developments in education.

While TES focuses on schools, its sister magazine THE (Times Higher Education) was launched in 1971 to cover universities, and now runs the globally respected THE World University Rankings.
