Many thanks for your interest in the 2018/19 survey for teachers, created by the UCL Centre for Holocaust Education. This page provides a summary of how your responses will be used in the research, please also read the full information sheet.
  • Completing this survey is voluntary and you can skip any questions you don’t want to answer.        
  • It should take approximately 15 to 35 minutes to complete the survey, dependent on how much experience you have of teaching about the Holocaust and the level of detail you wish to give in your answers.
  • The questions are about Holocaust education and explore your relevant teaching practice, knowledge, and experiences of CPD.
  • The survey also includes questions which collect the following special category personal data: your gender identity, religion and ethnicity. These questions are included to explore how representative of the demographic characteristics of teachers in England the survey respondents are, and we can also explore trends based on religious group. Additionally, if you’re interested in taking part in the second phase of this research and/or want to enter the free prize draw, we will ask you to provide your email address.
  • All personal information is kept confidential and stored securely. Please read the Data Protection Privacy Notice which explains your rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
  • The survey is hosted by Survey Monkey. We use settings that don’t log information about your email or IP address.
  • Your individual responses are confidential, stored securely and will not be shared with anyone outside of the UCL Centre of Holocaust Education.
  • We will collate responses from all teachers and write an anonymised report that gives an overview of findings. This report will be publicly accessible.
  • With your permission, we may use short, anonymous quotes to illustrate a point.
Withdrawing your responses from the study    
The only piece of information that could identify you is your email address if you provided this to express an interest in participating in the next phase of the research. If you give this information you will be able to withdraw your responses at a later date because we will create an encrypted file that links email addresses with survey ID numbers. However, if you provide your email address for the free prize draw to win a Waterstones’ voucher, this information will be stored in a different encrypted file and won’t be linked back to your survey so can’t be used to identify and withdraw your responses. Please contact Becky Hale (details below) if you want to withdraw your data or arrange to exercise your rights as outlined in the Data Protection Privacy Notice.

Alternatively, your survey responses can be anonymous by not giving your email address in the email questions. However, this means your responses cannot be withdrawn from the research (because we will be unable to identify which survey you completed). It also means the Data Protection Privacy Notice doesn’t apply because where data is anonymous the GDPR isn’t relevant.
