2 minutes with: Judith Judd Editor, Times Educational Supplement

Tell us about the recent relaunch.
The newspaper has been completely redesigned, and is easier for teachers to navigate. It is less bulky and feels more modern. We have launched The TES Magazine - which covers education issues and lifestyle, including travel, health, money, books and DVDs. Everything we review is relevant to teaching and education.

Why has TES relaunched?
TES has always been popular with older teachers, but the profession is increasingly young and we are hoping this will appeal to them. It also has a feminine flavour as there are more female than male teachers.

When do you deal with PROs?
We tend to talk to them to get in touch with people whose opinions we need, such as union leaders or government ministers, or people at quangos. They can also be very helpful for finding case studies of individual schools or teachers to illustrate stories. We do have some book reviews, too, which they help with. We also write about whiteboards, developments in IT, computer games that aid children's learning and so on.

Do PROs give you good stories?
Not very often - PR people wouldn't be our first port of call for a story to be honest. But we gather information from wherever we can and would always be interested in hearing about things that are of interest to schools and teachers from anyone who knows the education scene.

How could PROs make life easier?
We have 60 editorial staff, so check the website to find the right contact for each subject - everyone has a specialist area, from history to French to city academies and private schools.

When should they get in touch?
We come out on Fridays, and press day is Wednesday. The contact for the magazine is editor Wendy Berliner.
