As part of a continued process for us to ensure that we are improving as a college, and to ensure that we provide our students with the highest quality education we possibly can, we regularly ask our students for feedback during their studies. This feedback is vital to us; it allows us to improve where we need to improve, and gives us the chance to monitor the things we do well to help ensure they stay that way.

Our students told us that they wanted to see the data that we collect, and that they want to see what we are doing to address their feedback. We understand that statistics are not always easily accessible, and can appear extremely dry. To address this, we are committed to producing infographics that detail the data in a clear and easily manageable way, as well as producing a ‘You said, we did’ graphic that shows exactly how we are addressing the feedback. These documents will be created every six months and will allow everyone to see exactly what we are doing to ensure that we maintain our high quality standards.

The first of these documents can be found on our website, along with student testimonials.
