Education and the media

Ed Dorrell - TES

Ed DorrellEd Dorrell is a graduate of Newcastle University, where he studied politics.

His career in journalism started with freelance shifts on local papers in West London before he took his first staff job on the lesser known business-to-business paper Heating and Ventilating News in 2000.  In 2002, Ed joined The Architects’ Journal as a reporter, rising to news editor in 2004.  In 2008, after a brief stint running New Media Age, a weekly trade magazine for the digital sector, he was appointed to the news editorship of the TES.  Since early 2012 he has run features and comment together with a roving online brief.

Ed will discuss all aspects of the sometimes fractious relationship between the press and the education sector – including the seven deadly sins of education reporting. He will also happily offer advice on dealing with reporters.
