ITN and Channel 4 will find out next month if they have won the contract to operate education channel Teachers TV.
Last year, Broadcast reported that ITN was part of a consortium headed by Ten Alps, which has held the contract since the channel's launch in 2005.

Channel 4, Mentorn Media, the Guardian and the Institute of Education have put together their own 'dream team' to bid for the contract.

A spokeswoman for Teachers TV said all the bids were in and a decision was likely to be made in March.

The Open Universiry confirmed that it was also part of a consortium that had submitted a bid.

The contract was put up for tender last year.
