Deadline: 08/09/2014

Do you use charity produced resources in the classroom? Would you like the opportunity to influence the development of these resources, and to help improve their suitability for you and your students?

A leading humanitarian aid charity are currently reviewing their educational offering, and are looking for teachers to help them in the process.

We’re looking for Key Stage 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 teachers across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and who are involved with extra-curricular activities or youth work. We’d like to invite you to take part in two project phases:

  1. Spend 2 hours evaluating a shortlist of charity resources and completing a feedback form, assessing how suitable you feel they would be to use in your classroom. You might find it useful to attend a short webinar briefing prior to completing the evaluation, and the review of resources can be completed in your own time between Friday 5th – Monday 15th September. You’ll receive a payment of £50 in return for your work.
  2. Take part in a 30 minute telephone interview, to tell us about your experience of using charity resources in the classroom, and what else you think charities could do to further enhance their educational provision. The telephone interview will take place at a time to suit you between Monday 8th – Friday 26th September, and you will receive a payment of £20 in return for your time.

In line with the introduction of the new National Curriculum, this project is extremely important and your feedback will significantly impact the development of future resources.

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.
