NCSE Survey

The National Council for Special Education (NCSE) is undertaking an evaluation of how they deliver their frontline services, such as the work of their SENOs in allocating SNAs and opening up special classes and the work of their Visiting Teachers. 
They want to better understand the experiences of parents/carers whose child(ren) have been supported by the NCSE. IFF Research are carrying out a survey on behalf of the NCSE in partnership with the University of Derby and Mary Immaculate College (Limerick).  
The findings from the evaluation will be used by the NCSE to inform how they can improve their services and learn more about what they do well. All responses will be treated in the strictest of confidence and go directly to the research team and not to the NCSE. The NCSE will receive a report on the overall findings which won’t identify individual responses.
We would encourage you to complete the survey and take this opportunity to have your say on how you perceive the work of the NCSE.
Kind regards

NPC Administrative Officer
