There is so much news at the moment and it can be very difficult to keep track of everything going on that affects you personally. We also know that it can be quite easy to miss things happening on TSR if you're not eagle eyed 24 hours a day.

That's why we are now posting a weekly summary of the most important educational updates and news from both TSR and the wider world. Obviously we can only squeeze in a certain amount and might not get it right first time so please feel free to let us know what you're finding useful or not!
