Evaluation surveys

Last month, we announced our having gained Recognised Provider status with Skills for Care. This accreditation indicates that our provision has gone through an external quality assurance process to ensure that our training is of a high quality and designed specifically for the needs of the local adult social care workforce.

Part of this accreditation process was to improve the way we evaluate and monitor our training, so that we can show that it is making a difference to those who use our services. This is why we have updated our evaluation process to include a learner impact and manager's evaluation, for a number of key courses throughout the year. The information gathered will be used to ensure that training remains specific to your needs and, where indicated, improves the quality of delivery.

These short evaluation surveys will be distributed by email to staff and managers two months after attendance on one of the selected courses (see below). If you or a member of your staff are sent such an email, we would really value your honest comments about the service/training you received.


Which courses will be included in the surveys?

Please look out for our managers' evaluation surveys coming up in August for the following courses:
  • Level 2 Award in Health and Safety in the Workplace (9 May course)
  • Word and PowerPoint – GP practices (17 May course)
  • Fire Warden Training (18 May course)
  • Learning Disabilities De-escalation and Keeping Safe (19 May course)
  • Care Combinations refresher training – in house (24 and 25 May course)

Moving onwards and upwards 

Traineeships are pre-apprenticeship programmes for 16-24 year olds that last between six weeks to six months. Learners are not paid for the duration of the programme, but are given the opportunity to gain valuable experience and knowledge in a work area that is of interest to them.

For more information, click here to read how Georgia Bowen, Jade Morris and Sophie Hill (pictured above) progressed from attendance on a Health and Social Care Traineeship programme to a full Apprenticeship programme.

If you are interested in supporting a young learner through a Traineeship programme, please get in touch with our training team.
