Identify the destination routes of former students on completion of their studies
Colleges often have a perception of whether a particular course or programme is mainly designed to lead to further study or employment or both. Regular monitoring of students' actual destinations will show whether these characteristics are changing over the years and this in turn can help to guide pre-course counseling, curriculum design and the planning of marketing.Learn More
What do key stakeholders in the local community think of your college?
We offer a variety of online and telephone survey products which we can link to other data to provide greater insight into the perceptions of your local community, including employers, students and parents and other influential stakeholders.Learn More
