Ask Teachers Questions Online and Help Us to Give Teachers a Voice!

Are you a teacher who feels strongly about improving teaching and learning and wants their voice heard? Are you a business or researcher seeking up-to-the-minute insights on what’s really happening in schools?

Every day at 3:30 pm, thousands of teachers give a minute of their time to answer a short teachers’ survey sent directly to their phone via the Teacher Tapp app. Questions are delivered in a  multiple choice format and are quick and easy to respond to — we understand how limited and precious teachers’ time is!

We created Teacher Tapp to give teachers a voice and to help people learn about teachers’ daily lives. Teacher Tapp works with businesses, charities and researchers from a range of sectors, helping them to understand which products and services teachers want and need. Our team is made up of former-teachers and education experts who are committed to assisting schools to retain staff and reduce the number of people leaving the profession.

Businesses and organisations who submit questions to the survey receive a rich set of information to help them develop business solutions and achieve their goals. Teachers receive helpful articles and tips to support their Continuous Professional Development (CPD).

Want to Know Exactly What’s Going on in Schools?

How many hours do teachers work? How are schools responding to the new Ofsted framework? What are the most prized school resources? Ask questions to help your business, your advocacy work or your research. The Teacher Tapp app gives valuable insights to your questions within hours.

We have a range of options to suit all needs and budgets. Commission a new question, find the data you need in our extensive back catalogue of data or run a targeted advertising campaign. Or why not speak to us about creating a bespoke package to suit your specific needs?

Ongoing CPD for Teachers

Teacher Tapp provides free ongoing CPD for teachers by sharing poll results, articles and helpful tips at the end of each daily survey. We all know how time-pressured the teaching day is and how stretched school budgets can be. Finding the opportunity to continue training and developing as a teaching professional is a daily challenge, but it is more important now than ever. Our daily poll is a great way to integrate CPD into the school day and to trigger professional discussions between staff.

Laura McInerney

Chief Executive Officer

As Chief Executive Officer at Teacher Tapp, Laura is out and about every day talking to teachers and to potential clients about how we can work together. She is very well-known in the education world as a former teacher and Editor of Schools Week. Luckily for us, she started out in life as a management consultant so is brushing up on her rusty business skills!

Chief Analyst

Becky spends her days developing questions and analytical routines for teachers and clients. Another former teacher, she has recently escaped from a 15-year career in academia, most recently as a Professor of Education at UCL Institute of Education. The things she learnt in her early twenties in investment banking are helping to ensure Teacher Tapp doesn’t run out of money!

Alex is, technically, the one who really makes Teacher Tapp work each day. He builds our data infrastructure, our web interfaces and supports app development (which has been done by our friends at Imactivate). A software programmer in his early career, he recently gave up his job as a secondary school physics and computing teacher to work on Teacher Tapp full-time.

What did we do before @TeacherTapp?! Fast becoming one of my favourite apps!

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.

A quest for truth is often dangerous...absolutely agree, and this is why I love @TeacherTapp!! Looking forward to sharing whole-school this Wednesday!

Shout out for @TeacherTapp as the ‘gateway drug’ to research in the panel session. About a third of the 500 strong audience are currently on it.
