Social Policy Teaching in UK HEIs – 2022 Survey


Anyone who teaches social policy in UK Higher Education is warmly invited to take part in this survey. Undertaken by the University of Nottingham (icPSP), this is part of the third study in a series of five-yearly reviews commissioned by the Social Policy Association (SPA).

The study aims to provide a platform for social policy teaching staff to share their views on the issues and challenges they are facing at work. Wide participation would be very important in helping the social policy community and HEI managers to understand the current and future state of social policy teaching.

By comparing the findings with the previous studies conducted in 2011 and 2016, the study will enable the observation of changes in the discipline over time and potential trends in the future. The data will be used by the SPA to develop strategies in supporting the teaching and learning of social policy. The final report will be available on the SPA website and presented at occasions such as meetings of the Social Policy Convenors Group and the SPA conference.

View further information and take part in the survey.
