Dudley College
"Dudley College have used QDP for several years to provide learner perceptions for a variety of learners including full-time, part-time, evening only, schools, HE and our Dudley Sixth Centre. We have set up a wide variety of surveys using Survey Manager which is easy to use and allows us to benchmark ourselves against other FE colleges and sixth forms and measure our distance travelled.
We have also used Survey Manager for our staff survey and various other in-house surveys including our staff development conferences. We use a variety of questions some of which are used direct from the QDP library, some we adapt to meet our needs which mean we can still normally benchmark against others when we want a direct response to a particular question.
QDP’s Customer Services team are always on hand to advise and assist whenever we ask and produce our extra reports when needed for our various review meetings in a very timely manner.
The analysis is thorough and the results provided are used for review meetings and to assist us with our continuous quality improvement within the college. The summary reports are well received by our managers and academic staff and have allowed us to concentrate our effort on the weaknesses identified within particular areas. We would recommend QDP to other college providers.! "
