Capturing the Learner Voice (October 2021, Online)

This online event will provide an opportunity to consider QQI requirements and guidelines around ensuring the meaningful involvement and input of learners in the ongoing review, maintenance and enhancement of a provider’s quality assurance system.

In addition, it will provide an opportunity to hear about the work of AONTAS in capturing the learner voice, as it is used in the National FET Learner Forum. AONTAS will also describe what they have learned about capturing the learner voice in an online setting during COVID-19, what methodologies proved most effective, and how they ensure that learners have a safe, respectful space to freely share their experiences so that learner voice processes are authentic.

Finally, there will be an opportunity to hear from providers about their approach to engaging with learners:

  • CMETB will talk about the steps they have taken to include the learner voice in the ongoing review, maintenance and enhancement of their quality assurance processes
  • Moate Business College, a single location provider, from the Voluntary Secondary/Community and Comprehensive School (VSCCS) sector, will share their experience of capturing the learner voice and how this data is used to inform the improvement of quality assured systems
  • CETB will explain their approach to engaging with learners, and the role of the learners, in the inaugural review of quality assurance in education and training boards

The target audience for this event is: FET staff engaging with learners and those tasked with capturing the learner voice within their provision.

Facilitation: This event will be hosted by FESS and facilitated by FESS, AONTAS, CMETB, Moate Business College and CETB.
