ESFA learner satisfaction survey
This national learner satisfaction survey is run by the Education and Skills Funding Agency, the government body responsible for subsidising our courses. Results are published in June each year and help new learners compare different colleges and learning providers. Please ask your tutor or reception staff for your learner number, which you will need to complete the survey. Enter our learner provider number (10000976) on the first page.
We would like to know what you think of us so that we can gauge how well we are doing and what we can do to improve. There are many ways to provide feedback:
- Complete one of our online surveys, available here
- Speak to your tutor about any issues to do with your course
- Speak to reception staff about any centre issues
- If you wish, fill in a comments card at reception and either hand it back to reception staff or post it back to us free
- Nominate your tutor, learning support assistant, volunteer or assessor for an Award at our annual Adult Learner of the Year Awards event in June
- As part of our quality improvement process, we carry out observations of our tutors and welcome any verbal feedback that you wish to provide during the visit
- Take part in the ESFA Learner Satisfaction Survey which is available between November and May each year.
Your views are extremely important to us and we would like to hear from as many learners as possible.
Unhappy with a service you are receiving?
We would like you to tell us about what we are doing well. Likewise, if there is a problem, then we want to hear about this too. If you have any concerns about the service that you are receiving, please speak to your tutor or to reception staff or call our Enrolment team on 01296 383582. Most concerns are dealt with quickly and successfully in this way. If you don’t feel that we have dealt with your concern satisfactorily, please follow the Buckinghamshire Council complaints procedure.
