Seeking Your Views

We gather the views of our students throughout the year and this helps us improve the quality of our service and provision. Ofsted also gathers views of students via their Learner View which gives you the chance to tell them what you think about ACRES. Learner View asks for your opinion on a range of 10 aspects: from whether the lessons/training sessions are well taught to if you would recommend ACRES to a friend. Ofsted will use the information you provide when making decisions about which providers to inspect, and when. By sharing your views, you’ll be helping us to improve. You will also be able to see what other learners have said about ACRES.

There were six Adult Learners' Award winners who received their trophies and certificates from Hugh Hennebry, Chair of the ACRES' Board, and students who had achieved success on accredited courses were presented with their certificates by their tutors. Well done to all!
