Diversity Role Models is looking for students to complete our short online survey about homophobic, biphobic and transphobic (HBT) bullying in secondary schools. The survey is part of an impact assessment we are undertaking in relation to our workshops. We want to get a better understanding of the views and attitudes of secondary students across the UK so as to compare our results from workshops and make a bigger impact in schools.
This survey is intended for any student currently enrolled in secondary school in the UK, and we are keen to hear from as many students as possible. Participation in this survey is voluntary and only takes 10-15 minutes. The e-survey is hosted by Survey Monkey and is accessible 24 hours a day. The survey will close on Wednesday 1 July 2015. Responses are totally confidential and we do not ask students for their name or any identifying information, other than an optional email address if they would like to enter the prize draw to win a £50 Amazon voucher.
The direct link to the survey is https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/HBTsurvey.
What is the aim of the research?
DRM is seeking to evidence our work with young people in schools and to further develop our data collection methods in order to show both impact and outcomes of our programme for future development and as evidence for funders. The research tools will include five case studies of secondary schools who have participated in DRM workshops and an online survey of secondary school students across the UK.
Why is DRM doing this research now?
DRM is in a position now to expand and develop our work and would like to know more about why the workshops have an impact, how long this impact lasts and how to improve data collection to better inform delivery and to demonstrate impact.
