98.7% Positive Approval Rating

We are pleased to be able to publish our approval ratings for 2016; these show we received an Overall Positive Approval Rating of 98.7% from all learners who attended training with Beyond the Blue, across the whole portfolio of courses we delivered in 2016

We consider a score of either 4 or 5 as a 'positive approval rating'; a score of 3 as 'average'; 2 as 'Poor'; and 1 as ‘Very Poor’:

The following positive approval ratings were received for the core areas of:

  • ‘Course Content’ – 99.4%
  • ‘Trainers Knowledge & Performance’ – 100%
  • ‘Presentation of Information’ – 98%
  • ‘Training & Examination Facilities’ – 95.7%
  • ‘Accomplished Learning Objectives’ – 99.6%
  • ‘Course Administration’ – 98.7%
  • ‘Overall Courses Satisfaction’ – 99.7%

100% Satisfaction Achieved

In the core subjects of ‘Course Content’, ‘Trainers Knowledge & Performance’, ‘Presentation of Information’, 'Accomplished learning Objectives’ and ‘Overall Course Satisfaction’ we did not receive a single below average score1 throughout the whole of 2016.

1An average score is considered to be 3 out of 5; where 1 = Very Poor & 5 = Excellent.

Striving for Excellence

Overall only 0.14% of the scores received were below the average score of 3.

We always welcome constructive criticism and while we seek to deliver excellence for every client, we are satisfied that on average only 1 in every 700 of the scores received from people attending our training, suggest we are falling below average. This tiny number of below average scores are also all in the areas of ‘Training & Examination Facilities’ & ‘Course Administration to Date’; both areas where we rely on external companies to provide services.

The below average scores reflect the very few individuals who legitimately founds our training facilities below average; for example, they were too cold or warm when we experienced problems with air-conditioning. We are however pleased that 99.86% of people rated our training facilities 3 (average) or above; 98.7% rated them at 4 or 5.
