We're delighted to welcome Dr. Julia Jenkins back to the podcast after far too long away! Previously a member of our PGCE secondary science team, Julia was working for Teach First Cymru last time we caught up, but is now on the staff of the Institute of Physics. Julia has plenty of hard-hitting facts and figures for us on a worrying situation for diversity in the physics teaching world, with serious knock-on effects for teacher recruitment, A-level numbers and the subject of physics itself.

Julia and her colleagues at the IoP have plenty fo support available for physics teachers, and also the significant number of non-specialists who are teaching the subject. Check out their Limit Less pages at or drop Julia an email at


Recorded at Cardiff Metropolitan University's Cyncoed campus on 21st October 2021
