Learners value their education providers - poll.

THE vast majority of learners in further education, work-based learning, adult community learning and Welsh for adults language centres rate their learning provider as "very good" or "good", according to the results of a Welsh Government survey.

The Learner Voice Wales survey, conducted by independent research organisation, Ipsos MORI, received 68,658 responses from learners who were asked their views on a variety of dif-f ferent areas relating to their learning experience.

Overall, 48% of learners rated their overall experience as "very good" and 36% as "good". Close to nine in 10 learners said that their course either met (50%) or exceeded (39%) their expectations.

The survey asked learners several questions, including whether they were satisfied with the help given to them to settle into their provider or course (51% rating this as "very good" and 35% "good").

Ninety two percent of work-based learners felt that their training was relevant to the work that they are doing or wish to do (64% "very good", with 28% "good").

Meanwhile, 87% of work-based learners felt they had received enough one-to-one support (61% "very good", with 26% "good").

Deputy Minister for Skills and Technology Ken Skates said: "These figures demonstrate that learners clearly value the way in which their courses or training has been delivered and the support they have received."
