MyPL user testing

Are you interested in helping shape the online services we offer to teachers?

We are looking for teachers to take part in usability testing of our new MyPL system between 19-21 July in Edinburgh. To take part, you can have prior knowledge of MyPL but not have been involved in any of the research to date (ie, focus groups, discovery days, surveys).

Sessions will be one-to-one and last approx. 1 hour - they'll consist of a series of questions and tasks to be carried out using the test system.

Participants will get paid £25 plus reasonable travel expenses.

To register your interest in taking part, please contact
