Dear school, college and university Heads of Department for English and Key Stage 5 co-ordinators for English

We are writing to ask for your help with a project we have been commissioned to carry out by the Higher Education Academy to investigate aspects of English ‘lang/lit’ work at schools, colleges and universities.

The project builds on a previous project in this area which we carried out last year. Please see the information sheet, HEAlanglitproject_information_2013 if you would like more information.

If you agree to take part, your involvement will consist of reading the information sheet then answering questions on the relevant questionnaire, either HEAlanglitproject_ASA2questionnaire_2013 for schools and FE colleges, or HEAlanglitproject_HEquestionnaire_2013 for HE colleges and universities,
and sending it back to us at

We hope that this will not take up much of your time. If you have any questions about this, please email us at the above address.

Thanks very much for your help.

Best wishes,

Andrea Macrae (Oxford Brookes University),
Billy Clark (Middlesex University),
Marcello Giovanelli (University of Nottingham),

Oxford Brookes University, Gipsy Lane, Oxford, OX3 0BP.
