A large majority of questionnaires were filled out by professionals whose first language was English.A range of other languages were also reported. As with the parent questionnaire, the second most commonly reported language was Irish. Three respondents answered ‘English/Irish’, and these were captured by entering them as both ‘Irish’ and ‘English’. As a result there are more responses to this question than the total number of questionnaires received. Table 5.32 - First language of respondent Language n= Percentage Arabic 2 0.8% Dutch 2 0.8% English 224 94.1% German 1 0.4% Irish 7 2.9% Tamil 1 0.4% Telugu 1 0.4% Missing 3 1.3% Total 241 Length of time qualified in stated discipline Respondents were asked both how long they had been qualified in their particular discipline and also how long they had spent actively practicing in this discipline. Figures 5.11 and 5.12 below show a wide range of responses to both questions and indicate that the professionals answering the questionnaire had differing levels of experience, on a spectrum from those who had been qualified for less than a year to those who had been practicing in their particular discipline for over thirty years. The largest group of respondents were qualified for between 5 and 14 years (36.1%). A slightly higher percentage (42%) had been practicing in their stated discipline for between 5 and 14 years, taking account perhaps of those who had been practicing whilst in training in their specified discipline.
