New national survey to get the views of teachers and support staff in Wales launched

A new national survey aimed at getting the views of teachers and support staff across Wales launches today, Education Secretary Kirsty Williams has announced (Mon 31st Oct).
Monday 31 October 2016
The first National Education Workforce Survey, which will be run by the Education Workforce Council, provides a unique opportunity for the profession to give their views on a range of issues which affect them.

It will cover teachers and support workers in both school and further education settings, as well as supply workers.

The questions in the survey will cover the following key themes:

  • Being a teacher
  • Professional development
  • Performance management
  • Workload
  • Curriculum and assessment
  • Welsh language.

The results will help to inform Welsh Government policy and provide a baseline for future surveys.

Kirsty Williams said: 

“I want to work closely with the profession to help teachers be the best they can be, while raising the standing of the profession as a whole. Without enthused, valued and skilled teachers we can’t offer our learners the educational opportunities they deserve.

“I’m pleased to be carrying out this manifesto commitment as I believe it is essential for us to listen to the profession and gauge their opinion in a number of key areas. This pilot survey will provide a useful source of information for our national mission of education reform. The survey demonstrates the value we place on our education workforce and our commitment to ensuring that they are at the heart of developments on matters which affect them.”

Education Workforce Council Chair Angela Jardine said:

"This is the first time that the education workforce in Wales has had the opportunity to have their say on everything that affects them – from workload to performance management.

“It's a golden opportunity for staff across the country to express their opinion with the intention of influencing future education policy. We will consider the results carefully and hope to publish them in January 2017.”
