Give Us Your Feedback

We are keen to ensure that all the training offered by BCTG is always of the highest quality and fully meet the needs and expectations of every learner and employer.

To do this we need your feedback about what has worked well, and the areas that need improvement.

We try to collect this feedback in several ways, for instance by telephone, by email and through our website.

Give Us Your Feedback

Annual Survey

We conduct an annual learner and employer survey. We may email you directly asking for your feedback on the training we provide, and how its helping you or your business develop and progress. We use this information to plan how we will continually improve our courses

Direct Surveys

We may also call you directly to get your feedback on a particular topic or course. If we do this, please remember that our staff will always introduce themselves by name and explain why they are calling. We will always keep the calls short, usually only a few minutes, but if it’s inconvenient to talk, please tell us straight away and we will arrange a better time to call back.
