Do you live in Staffordshire and have a child/children under the age of 18?

Below are links to two questionnaires which will take no more than 5 minutes of your time. Your participation will help enormously in providing data for a funding application. If you are eligible to take part, and respond before the end of September 2016, you will be entered into a draw for a £100 Amazon voucher as a thank you for your time.

The Signals Regiment is representing the Army as a partner on a funding bid, alongside The University of Wolverhampton, Staffordshire County Council and key employers in the region. The application is to the Department for Education for permission and funding to build and open a brand new University Technical College (UTC) in Stafford, offering 14-18 year olds specialist technical education alongside the national curriculum. The new UTC will teach the national curriculum, with a particular emphasis on STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).

The application requires us to show whether parents would support the establishment of this type of school in Staffordshire and also if potential pupils would want to attend a specialist school such as this. We would be extremely grateful if you and your child(ren) would complete one of the following online surveys:

For pupils under the age of 18, to be completed with adult supervision:  https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/schoolpupils
