Our names are Michelle Attard Tonna and James Calleja, and we are conducting a research study focusing on the professional experience of teachers and educators in Malta. The research project is entitled Understanding teachers’ professional lives and careers: A Maltese case study.

The aim of this research is to gain insights of Maltese teachers’ professional lives and career progression. It aims to create a platform for teachers’ voices to be heard and represented. The research questions which inform this research will focus on understanding how teachers choose to progress in their careers, and the way these choices impact on the career stages they are now in, or aspiring to be in. The authors would also like to investigate whether teachers’ aspirations are being fulfilled through the role and responsibilities they currently hold, and whether the professional development they engage in is linked to their career progression.  

In order to achieve this, we will be conducting an online questionnaire with you, as a teacher or educator in Malta. This will help us understand the way you have progressed in your career and the aspirations you may have in your professional life.  The link to this questionnaire will allow you to submit your responses online - this will take around 10 minutes. Your identity will remain anonymous throughout and there is no way this can be revealed when your answers are submitted.  
 
Thanks in advance to your contribution to this research.
