Why Download Teacher Tapp?
The app has been designed for teachers who work in a school in England, whether state or private. Anyone can download the app, but currently, it may be less relevant to non-teaching staff, teachers in early years settings, further education or schools outside of England. Find out more here.
How Does the App Work?
The Teacher Tapp app is free to download, easy to set up and quick to use. Teachers who sign up receive a notification on their phone at 3:30 pm each day, to take part in that day’s short survey. Questions are multiple choice and the poll takes only one or two minutes to complete. At the end of the survey, teachers find out how others answered the questions and receive a daily piece of free CPD, including articles and top tips to improve teaching.

Why Is It Such a Great Tool for Teacher’s CPD?
We understand how busy the school day is and how difficult it is for teachers to find the time for their professional development. The Teacher Tapp app is one of the best apps for teachers’ CPD. Surveys take less than a minute to complete — most participants complete the survey in seven to fifteen seconds! We designed the app with busy teachers in mind.
For those with a few more minutes to spare, a blog or article is shared each day with helpful insights that can enhance teaching practice. Read, reflect and make changes! Teacher Tapp surveys are delivered at the same time each day, making CPD part of the your daily routine. The daily polls are also a great trigger for professional discussions in the staffroom — an invaluable opportunity to learn from and with colleagues.
“44 days. I have so much time for @TeacherTapp – the simple idea of saying hey, I know you don’t always have as much time as you’d like to find insightful posts about important educational debates, I’ll give you a link to one if you answer these three questions”.
The app gives teachers a voice. The thousands of teachers who take part in the polls each day are revealing a picture of what’s really going on in schools — what affects teachers’ morale, effectiveness and likelihood to stay in the classroom. By learning about the experiences and opinions of other survey participants, teachers develop a greater awareness of their working conditions and gain insights into current education issues affecting schools.
Who Can Ask Questions in the Teacher Tapp Survey?
We have some ground rules, but most businesses, organisations, researchers or policymakers will be eligible to submit a question. With our help, you can gain fast insight into the products and services that teachers want and need, boost your advocacy position or scope a new research project. The Teacher Tapp app gives valuable answers to your questions within a few hours. Find out more about how to submit a question here.
Teacher Tapp is available in app stores in the UK and across Europe.
