Equality and Diversity Statement
National Learning Network values each of its students and staff members equally. We are committed to providing equality of opportunity and recognising diversity as reflected in the Rehab Group Diversity and Equal Opportunity policy.
National Learning Network provides services and working environments that actively promote equality and diversity and takes steps to eliminate discrimination or harassment as defined in equality legislation.
Quality and Compliance
National Learning Network measures students’ perceptions of our services through the National Learner Satisfaction Survey. The survey takes place each year at all service locations. The survey measures satisfaction with all aspects of interaction with our services, including:
- Initial contact
- Entry arrangements
- Training delivery
- Standard of facilities
- Progression from our services
The results from the Learner Satisfaction survey are fed back to all levels of National Learning Network and are used to support the planning and continuous improvement of our services. Results from the 2019 survey involving 1,900 students showed an overall satisfaction level of 98%.
