Transforming Lives – One of our best campaigns

Jun 19th, 2018 | By | Category: News

Dear colleague

In my opinion Transforming Lives is one of the best campaigns this union has run. By using the real stories of teachers and learners the project demonstrates the real value of further education to the wider world and clearly articulates the need for proper funding and support for the sector.

Please see below a message from Vicky and Rob, the researchers undertaking the project, and help support the next stage of their work by responding to the survey.

Thank you.

Sally Hunt
UCU general secretary


Dear members,

UCU has commissioned a research project on the impact of transformational teaching and learning in further education. We have been speaking to teachers and learners across Britain, gathering accounts of how further education provides a lifeline for individuals and communities (interim report link here) now in its second phase, includes a survey that has been designed to capture your insights, views and experiences.

Please click here to take part in the survey.

Data gathered from this survey will be extremely valuable in analysing the impact of transformative teaching and learning in the further education workforce in order to present a powerful case to policy makers about the importance of your work.

Your voice matters in the project’s ongoing drive to validate the vital work of further education. All responses to the survey will be anonymous and confidential although respondents will be able to contact the research team to arrange a brief telephone interview if this is something you would like to do.

Many thanks for your time.

Dr Vicky Duckworth and Dr Rob Smith
