We are writing to you today regarding a survey about the Access and Inclusion Model (AIM) that was carried out by Better Start in March and April 2021 – over 700 preschool providers responded to the survey.
The Department appreciates the time that practitioners contributed to completing the survey.
We are contacting you to let you know that researchers from the University of Derby will be emailing practitioners who completed the survey and gave their contact details. The email will be an invitation to participate in interviews about AIM. The interviews will be confidential and the data will be anonymised so that the identity of practitioners is protected.
The Department would appreciate your participation, if possible. The voice of practitioners really matters in this evaluation and it will be an opportunity to contribute to the ongoing development of AIM.
