As you may be aware, there has been long delays in the publication of the Learner Views Survey results of 2009/10 being published. These results were due to be published in June 2010. However, due to the changes in the machinery of Government this publication was delayed. A further delay then occurred in November but we are pleased to inform you that the Skills Funding Agency has now announced the date if this publication.
John Hayes, the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills Minister of State for Further Education, Skills and Lifelong Learning (jointly with the DfE) has agreed that the publication of the 2009/10 results can take place on Wednesday 15 December 2010. These results will be hosted on a Skills Funding Agency website and NUS will post the exact address once it is made available.
This publication is great news for students' unions who will be able to use the results of the survey to add weight to their campaigns and use the data as evidence to inform the need for positive change within their colleges. Furthermore, prospective students will also benefit from the publication as they will now be able to have a more informed choice about what, and where, to study.
NUS will post further information regarding the results data such as help with analysis and dissemination near the publication date.
