Taking part for frontline professionals

What’s involved?

If you took part in a project or activity that are part of the Opportunity Areas programme, you might be invited to take part in:

  • One interview

Interviews will last up to 1 hour and will be led by one of our researchers.

In the interview, we will ask you about:

  • Your experience of taking part in projects or activities funded through the Opportunity Areas programme
  • What has worked well and less well
  • How the COVID-19 pandemic has affected delivery, and what support you have received
  • Your expectations for the project or activities going forward

Why have I been selected to take part?

You have been asked to take part because your organisation is based in one of the 12 Opportunity Areas and you have been involved in the programme.

What will happen to any information I give?

We will bring together the views of everyone who has taken part in this research into a report for the DfE. We won’t use any names, names of organisation or any information that could identify you or your organisation in any of the reports or presentations.

For more information on how NatCen will handle your personal information, please refer to the privacy notice.
