VoicED Education Community
The VoicED Community is a place for education professionals to share their opinions about topics spanning the entirety of the education sphere – from the curriculum to new resources, and from remuneration to SEN support. The panel was founded in 2011 and is backed by the Prince’s Teaching Institute, an independent educational charity created by HRH The Prince of Wales – showing that our approach to education market research is backed at the highest levels within the industry.
Data Protection and Quality Assurance
The VoicED Education Community is owned and operated by DJS Research Ltd, a full-service market research agency and company partner of the market research society which is registered with the Data Protection Act (Registration Number: Z1091106). DJS Research is ISO 9001:2008 accredited, meaning that we operate to stringent quality procedures.
A key part of our offer, to both our clients and to our panelists, is that the VoicED Education Community is purely for market research purposes. We do not pass on our members’ details without prior consent, and we do not advertise or market to our panelists on behalf of third parties – something many of our competitors cannot claim.
In addition, we agree with the Prince’s Teaching Institute’s aim of helping teachers to be inspiring, knowledgeable and passionate. In order to do this, we not only pay our individual respondents incentives for taking part in surveys, but we also match that incentive for their institution or the Prince’s Teaching Institute (depending on what the education professional in question decides when they sign up). Through providing educational establishments with additional funding, VoicED helps ensure that resources are up to date, that sports equipment is affordable and that buildings and estates are well maintained. Our donations to the Prince’s Teaching Institute help pay for continuing professional development training, summer schools and networking – which brings the community aspect of the VoicED offer full-circle.
Sector Knowledge and Research Experience
The research team behind VoicED is made up of experienced education sector researchers who have carried out studies for a wide array of clients and looking at numerous different aspects of the education industry – from branding and new course development, to satisfaction and teacher training. This wider sector experience allows our team to put your research in to context, and to bring in wider themes if necessary. In addition, the combined experience means that your research is managed by highly competent professionals from start to finish – whether you are simply buying sample, utilising our omnibus research offer or looking for a full qualitative or quantitative market research project.
