You Said – We Did

At Geason Training we put the Learner Experience at the heart of everything we do so we ask for feedback on a regular basis and treat every point seriously.

In September 2018, we reached out to 302 live learners in total via telephone and the results were recorded directly onto Survey Monkey.

This was to supplement the on-programme and induction surveys conducted throughout 2017 -18 academic year. The survey reached out to 302 live learners in total.

We were delighted to hear that 94% of the learners surveyed felt that they had learned new skills relevant to their job during the time they spent on their course.

The image below highlights some of the actions we have implemented since undertaking the survey such as recruiting a Customer Service Manager to co-ordinate information to and from learners.

 

We value the feedback our learners provide and use it to ensure we are constantly developing and improving our services to align with their needs.

Expanding Our Portfolio

Geason Training have forged a solid reputation as construction training experts, but we are delighted to announce that we are now expanding our training portfolio by offering apprenticeships in IT, Digital Marketing and Accounting.

Providing flexibility to our customers remains one of our strongest focuses as a business and our increased course offering reinforces our commitment to offering flexible progressive training opportunities to businesses looking to invest in the development of their staff.


This exciting new development sees us take on key staff from training provider 3aaa which recently ceased trading. As a result, we are able to offer their current learners’ continuity in their apprenticeship.

Learners are at the heart of everything we do, so we would like to reassure our new learners that the transition from 3aaa to Geason Training will be seamless and that their journey through their apprenticeship will remain unaffected.

If you’ve recently joined us as a learner from 3aaa and would like to seek some clarity, please visit our mini site (www.geasonapprentices.co.uk), speak to your tutor or Apprenticeship manager or call our office on 0330 088 9596.
