New teacher support research

The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) is working on a research project with Sheffield Hallam University to understand the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on new teachers and the support they need, and the support given to ITE teachers and trainers by their employers and how it can be enhanced.

This is an opportunity to share your experience and help us identify what support is already available in the sector and how it could be extended.

We are looking for people from the following groups who can participate in one online interview as part of a small focus group:

  • teachers or trainers who completed a teaching qualification, level 3 or above, after April 2020
  • senior leaders of FE providers who have recruited newly qualified teachers or trainers since April 2020
  • senior leaders of ITE providers
  • ITE teachers and trainers.

Participants are sought across FE Colleges, sixth form colleges, adult education services, independent training providers, and other parts of the FE sector.

To join a focus group, please contact Naomi Dixon, ETF Performance Manager:
