DfE Key to Success (KtS) replacement project

Would you like to take part in the next stage of the DfE KtS trial which begins later this month?

If you participated in the initial KtS research last year we would like to thank you for your time and valuable input. Some of the important findings from the first stage of the research told us that:

  • KtS is considered "vital", "essential" and "unthinkable not to exist."
  • Accessing the system can be frustrating for occasional users
  • Any new KtS system needs to:
    • Be secure and easy to access
    • Have easily downloadable files
    • Have reliable and trustworthy data
    • Include an improved search facility
    • Provide guidance on how to use the service and data

And now we need your help again!

We are now at the next stage where we are asking users, like you, to help us develop the KtS system. We need to make sure it meets your needs more fully. We would really appreciate your help in shaping the future of KtS.

If you would be happy to be contacted for further research, please let us know by replying to the KTS mailbox.

If you wish to take part, you may be contacted by our DfE User Researcher, Will Clarke and / or me. All research will be conducted confidentially. By taking part in this research you can keep up to date with how this important system is taking shape.

Thank you and regards,

Chris Wood

UR/UX and Communications Officer
