Teachers: what's in it for you?

£1,000,000 – that’s how much we’ve paid our members since we started out in 1998.

We pay teachers to take part in our work for clients: mostly this is research, but might also be hosting school visits, authoring content, giving advice, reviewing products, being a resource advocate… lots of ways.

Our clients are education publishers, museums, charities, awarding bodies, management consultants – anyone in fact, who is interested in schools – and teachers.

Insights

We also provide updates on what’s going on in the world of education via our free Insights service (latest Insights below). We look at current research into schools and the teaching profession from all the top research agencies (including us!) and share schools’ experiences or responses to the findings. We also archive the last five years for you to search or browse.

Schoolzone was started and is run by teachers. We want to give teachers a voice – and our clients want to hear it, that’s why they come to us. We include all the leading publishers, awarding bodies and many major charities in our client list, so by joining our team, you’ll be directly influencing the resources and assessment that you could be using in your own classroom in the near future. And getting paid for it. See what some of our teachers have said about us in the past below (or have you own say by logging in).

 

I really enjoyed the experience and would love to take part again. The whole set up and running of the webinar and questionnaire was so professional as well as the email contact with Helen. The product looks very interesting and I will be looking out for it in the future. I loved how “real” teachers were asked to evaluate the programme rather than a company creating something that they think teachers will use.
A very probing and relevant survey – forced me to think more deeply about our own assessment systems and the limitations of them.
Absolutely brilliant, was a great source of sharing and information, was nice to see how others do it and find out similarities and differences in pedagogy, teaching styles and how we use resources. Look forward to the next one.
You listen to teachers, care what they think and value their judgement (unlike the government!).
I enjoyed it, it has provided me with some very valuable ideas I will take back and apply at my school. Thanks
