Lakes College has second highest employer satisfaction rate in the country

Lakes College has the second highest scoring employer satisfaction rate in the country for General FE Colleges, with a satisfaction rate of 98.8% according to the annual National FE Choices Employer Satisfaction Survey.

The purpose of the FE Choices Employer Satisfaction Survey is to provide consistent and comparable information for learners and employers to help them make informed choices about publicly funded education and training, as well as providing consistent management information on key performance indicators.

Out of 214 colleges surveyed nationally, Lakes College scored 98.8%, with only South Gloucestershire and Stroud College scoring higher. The median score for Further Education colleges is 74.9%. When all providers are included (e.g. private and specialist providers), Lakes College came in the top 20, out of 566.

This follows the excellent national Higher Education survey results for Lakes College earlier this year, in which the college ranked in the top 10 for student satisfaction in the annual National Student Survey undertaken by Higher Education students across the UK.

Chris Nattress, College Principal, comments, “We are delighted with the results of this survey. The feedback from our employers shows their trust in us as a high quality learning provider, and they have the confidence in us to provide them with the best possible training for their employees. Although we are delighted with this result, we will continue to work with our employers and learners to ensure the best experience for everyone involved with the college.”
