Here's what we have on offer at the moment:

Deadline: 31/10/2014

Do you teach in Art and Design, Performing Arts, Photography, Fashion or Media? If so, we would love to hear from you!

GCSE and A-level specifications have changed, and new guidelines are in place for 16-19 vocational qualifications. So we want to hear about your thoughts on Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in these subjects. What training have you done recently, or what would you like to do? Where are you turning for support, and how do you rate it?

You can earn £20 by giving us your thoughts online through one of our feedback forms Ė itíll only take half an hour of your time. Your views will have a direct impact on how an awarding body designs its future CPD packages for teachers just like you!

You will receive a confirmation email If we are able to offer you a place on the project.

Focus groups

These are group discussions with 6 - 10 participants, run by a Schoolzone moderator. We pay attendees £50 - £60 each to participate. Groups run for 2 hours after school (usually starting at 4:30) and are held at a prominent local venue or are held online via Adobe Connect and teleconferencing.

Focus groups are a great opportunity to get your voice heard and hear from colleagues in other schools. We run groups on a variety of topics and teachers often say that participation has been the best CPD they've had all year. Not to mention the cash!


Surveys are probably the simplest way to take part in Schoolzone research - they typically take about 5minutes to complete and we pay loyalty scheme members £2 per completion, where appropriate. Additionally, we run monthly prize draws for all entrants. These are typically £750 to £1,000.

ur surveys are always aimed at teachers or other education professionals, not asking you what sort of shampoo you use. Often, the resulting reports are published on the Schoolzone site.
