Hello, my name is Gary Petley, and I am the MI (Management Information) Manager at SR Apprenticeships. I just started at SR in November 2020 but have worked in similar roles at City College Nottingham, Portland College and Enable over the last 12 years.
There are three main surveys that SR Apprenticeships will be running over the next few months. This year the ESFA decided not to undertake any Learner or Employer surveys for Apprentices at Training Providers. The feedback we gain from these is important for understanding how SR Apprenticeships is performing and thus how we can improve. Therefore, we will be running our own Learner and Employer Surveys this year.
The Learner Survey will be based on the FE Choices Learner Satisfaction Survey and will go out in February 2021. This looks to capture how satisfied Learners are with the training provided and how likely they would be to recommend SR Apprenticeships.
So, Learners please complete the online survey when you receive it, and assessors please encourage your Learners to complete it.
The Employer Survey will be based on the FE Choices Employer Satisfaction Survey and will go out in June 2021. This will capture how the Employer feels SR Apprenticeships worked with the Employer, the training provided to their staff, and how likely they would be to recommend SR Apprenticeships.
So, Employers please complete these when you receive them, and could the staff that work with the Employers please encourage them to complete the online survey.
Apprenticeship Destination Survey
There is also an ongoing Apprenticeship Destination Survey at about 6 months after finishing their Apprenticeship to see the benefits of our Apprenticeships in gaining promotions, pay rises and moving on to a Higher-Level Apprenticeship.
Thank you for those who have currently participated in our surveys and we look forward to receiving more in the new year.
