ISASA Schools Outreach Survey

Please help us to understand the scope, scale, and efficacy of your outreach and community service programmes, by completing the survey below.  This survey should take less than ten minutes of your time.

Your data will be kept confidential but it will greatly assist with our efforts to provide better services to not only our members, but also to the education sector as a whole. Anonymised results will be shared and incorporated into a forthcoming ISASA guidebook on Effective Outreach Practices for Independent Schools.

Please note: the survey is designed to capture data on both outreach programmes (external engagement with government schools as the beneficiaries) and ‘inreach’ community service programmes (with your pupils as beneficiaries). This is a key distinction going forward.
