The Jersey Teachers’ Survey was sent to all qualified teaching professionals in Jersey (around 1,000) to complete during September 2015. Teachers in all sectors were given the opportunity to complete and return the survey.
The response from teaching professionals was high, with 45% of all teachers returning survey forms.
Statistical weighting techniques have been used to compensate for different patterns of non-response from different sub-groups of the teaching population; the survey responses have been weighted by educational sector and school type (primary / early years, secondary / further education colleges and special schools).
By weighting the responses, we can be more confident that the survey results are broadly accurate and representative of Jersey’s entire teaching population.
However, as with all sample surveys there is an element of statistical uncertainty, therefore, the report focuses on significant findings.
