How Learners Rate Beyond the Blue Training

After every course we ask learners to complete a short feedback form; we always ask for honest comments, good and bad. Our feedback forms are broken into two sections; ‘scores’ and ‘comments’.

This feedback allows us to assess ourselves and act in order to improve; we understand that our service levels are a reflection of what our clients think, not what we believe.
