Most Teachers Were Confident In The Quality Of Remote Education They Were Providing Last Term, According To A New Survey Published By Ofsted.

The majority of teachers have confidence in the quality of the remote learning they have been providing, according to a survey carried out for Ofsted.

Just over half of teachers polled also believed that what they were doing was sustainable for the future.

Ofsted has published a new report today on remote education, which includes findings from a YouGov survey carried out on behalf of the inspectorate.

Ofsted: How to do remote learning 'well'


It shows that 61 per cent of teachers had confidence that they were providing a high-quality education to pupils when remote learning was needed.

This survey was carried out last year before schools moved online to most pupils during the latest national lockdown. 

It found that 14 per cent of teachers were very confident they were providing a high quality of education through remote learning and another 47 per cent were quite confident.

Another 23 per cent were said to be quite unconfident and 9 per cent were very unconfident.

An Ofsted survey says most teachers were confident in the quality of their remote education offer last term.

Teachers were also asked if what they were doing was sustainable. Just over half (51 per cent) had confidence in this but 42 per cent did not - and 7 per cent said they didn't know.

The YouGov survey was open for two weeks in late November and early December. In total, 1,003 teachers and responded.
