The National Centre for Social Research (NatCen) is conducting a study on behalf of the Social Mobility Commission to explore challenges affecting the stability of the early years workforce across the country, with the aim of identifying policy suggestions to make the workforce more stable. We are paying £30.00 in high street shopping vouchers for a telephone interview with us where you can share your views.
Who can take part?
NatCen wants to speak to members of Voice in England in the following roles:
- Voice members working in school-based nurseries; and
- Voice members in private, voluntary or independent (PVI) nurseries.
We believe the perspectives of union members are vital for understanding challenges the early years sector faces, and we hope you will be interested in speaking to us for this important project.
What would taking part involve?
We would like to arrange a 45-minute telephone interview with you at a time that is convenient for you in November or December 2019.
This research is anonymous – we will not name any individual or workplace in the report. With your permission, interviews will be recorded for analysis but will not be shared outside of the NatCen project team. Recorded interviews will be stored securely in line with GDPR.
How do I take part?
If you’re interested in taking part, or would like further information, please email SEYW@natcen.ac.uk or call 0808 168 2153. We will get right back to you.
We hope to hear from you soon.
