Once again, ACT have secured fantastic results and feedback from their annual Learner Voice Survey, with 96% of learners rating ACT positively.

As Wales’ leading training provider, ACT is committed to ensuring our learners receive consistently high services across the board throughout their learner journey.

To guarantee standards are maintained and learner satisfaction is paramount, each year we undertake a survey of our learners from the network across a variety of areas. Learners are asked questions regarding the support they receive, the information given to them, the facilities and equipment available to them as well as their overall rating of their provider. 

ACT prides itself on its award-winning staff, strong support systems and top training facilities, and this continues to be reflected year on year in our survey results.

This year we had a record number of responses with 3171 learners completing our 2020 Learner Voice Survey (across the ACT Network). A huge increase of 797 learners from our previous 2019 survey.

With 21 partner organisations, 12 different Traineeship routes for 16-18-year-olds, and Apprenticeships and Higher Apprenticeships in over 30 different sectors, we have a diverse and varied range of learners of which we work hard to ensure we deliver high-quality and relevant training to. This can be evidenced by the incredible feedback the ACT network received across a variety of areas. Highlights include:

  • 96% of our learners rated us positively
  • 96% of our learners said they felt safe learning with ACT
  • 95% of our learners said that their qualification with ACT is helping them to achieve their goals
  • 94% of our learners said that their qualification is relevant to their job role.

 The survey also received some great feedback from our learners: 

“I thoroughly enjoyed the programme and I have received outstanding support from two exceptional tutors, from whom I have learnt so much. Both are extremely proactive in responding to any queries or providing additional help, and for that I am truly grateful.”

“I have really enjoyed my experience with ACT. My tutor always made sure I was pushing myself and helped link the qualification back to my job role which really helped give the qualification context in my everyday life. I was always made aware of the support available to me, and he took the time to check in on my well-being, as well as my academic progress, which I really appreciated!” – IT, Social Media and Digital Marketing Learner

“A collaboration with my ACT tutor helped me discover my potential. They made my learning journey achievable, enjoyable and possible. During the course I have noticed a big change in my wellbeing and my tutor has shown me I can achieve much more than I think.”

We are always striving to ensure our learners rate the service they receive as excellent. Although the results we have secured across the board are fantastic, we are committed to building upon these and look to any areas that learners feel could be further improved or developed.  

Richard Spear, Managing Director of ACT Training, commented: “At ACT, everything we do is for the benefit of our learners. They are at the heart of everything we do and this clearly shows in our survey results. Our incredible teams at ACT really do care about improving the lives of others, and we are always continuously looking for new ways to improve and build on our services. We have a truly dedicated team of people working at ACT who always go above and beyond to help our learners achieve and realise their career potential!”

Chloe Mundell, ACT’s Learner Representative, added, “We’re really chuffed to have achieved our highest response rate yet, along with excellent results and feedback such as 96% of our learners saying they feel safe in ACT.
