Podcasts are having a moment right now — even we have one. We talk about SEND of course, but if you wanted to host a podcast of your own, what would you choose? And how would you get big-name guests?
Today’s post is about a group of young people and their teacher at a special school for autistic young people, who’ve done just that — and won a global Sports Podcast Award in their first year. Under Tettenhall Wood School in Wolverhampton, teacher, Adam Millichip, set up the TWS Sports podcast in 2021 to help pupils learn key skills such as communication, developing social skills, improving confidence and much more. They also aim to raise awareness and acceptance of autism to the wider community. They’ve managed to attract famous names from the world of sports, and even won a global Sports Podcast Award the same year. This December sees their 100th edition.
