Teacher resources and teacher professional development programming across the curriculum

It is part of The Annenberg Foundation and advances the Foundation's goal of encouraging the development of more effective ways to share ideas and knowledge.

Teachers TV was the digital channel for everyone who works in schools. Its programmes covered every subject in the curriculum, all key stages and every professional role – from teaching assistant to headteacher. You could watch it on digital cable and satellite and programmes are also available anytime, on-demand and for free on this website. Sadly, along with many other well-known UK agencies active in the education and training sphere including Becta, Teachers TV has fallen foul of cutbacks in UK spending. From the end of March 2011 this terrific source of free education videos and resources aimed at the professional development of teachers has no longer been available.
Luckily its resources are now available on
