ECARDA is able to undertake the surveys on your behalf and provide you with full analyses and reports on the collated responses. Where ECARDA has undertaken previous surveys we are able to provide year-on-year comparisons. For pupil and parent surveys we expect schools to distribute and collect the questionnaires. For staff and governors ECARDA will distribute and collect the responses itself, signalling objectivity and independence of the process. ECARDA is able to organise and manage “on-line” surveys.
These services vary from school to school according to need and size. Therefore, please contact ECARDA to discuss your requirements so that a price can be calculated for you.
We do not charge for discussing and setting up contracts.
Alternatively, establishments may wish to purchase the surveys and manage the analyses and reports themselves.
