Nicola Benedetti: Teachers can be 'overqualified'

25 October 2013 Last updated at 10:41 BST

Some teachers can be overqualified, said violinist Nicola Benedetti - who has been awarded another Classic Brit award - and described herself as "a product of a mixture of teachers," both with and without official qualifications.

She debated qualifications - in the week when teaching standards at free schools were in the news - with Andrew Neil, Alan Johnson and Michael Portillo.
