Overview of current national surveys aimed at the CLD sector

Please see the email below that John Galt sent to all CLD Managers. It's really important we hear the voice of all CLD practitioners and learners in these surveys. We will be promoting a different survey each week in November.

Dear CLDMS colleagues,

Overview of current national surveys aimed at the CLD sector

There are a number of important CLD-related national online surveys live at the moment that we would like to ask you to promote. We thought that it would be useful to send information about these in the one email.

The feedback from each of these four surveys will help to inform different aspects of national CLD policy and support so it’s important to make sure that as many learners and practitioners as possible have opportunities to respond. Can we therefore please ask you to share and promote each of the surveys below to the relevant audiences through your organisations/areas/partnerships? We have attached a bit more information on each survey which may be useful for your own communications.

Many thanks for your help.
