Cultural Learning Alliance Teacher survey

This survey into the impact of the EBacc on arts and culture in schools has been extended.

Posted: 01/11/2013

Calling all secondary teachers. 

If you work in a secondary school or college, or teach at KS3, 4 or 5 please take 10 minutes to fill in Cultural Learning Alliance’s (CLA) survey on the Impact of the English Baccalaureate (EBacc) by 15th January. Don’t work at secondary level? Can you forward this on to someone who does?

Many of CLA’s members are extremely concerned that the EBacc performance measure for schools does not include arts subjects. There is already a decline in the number of young people studying the arts from age 14, and recent research published by the Department for Education showed that as a direct result of the EBacc schools are cutting drama, art, design and technology courses.

CLA need more information about what is happening on the ground. Filling in this quick survey will provide us with more evidence about the impact of the EBacc on the provision and prioritisation of arts and cultural subjects in schools, and will help them make the case for cultural learning to government.

CLA are aware of several partner organisations you are working up their own data on the EBacc and will be collaborating with them to align and incorporate all our findings. However, this particular survey is specific to the arts and culture and so is not replicating others. Please do take the time to fill it in – it will make a real difference.
