Advice Skills Academy – End of Project Evaluation

The current round of ESF funding for the Advice Skills Academy project is coming to an end in late September 2019.

We’re looking to get feedback from as many people as possible, so we can report to the funders on what the project has done, what it has achieved and the impact that it has had for people taking part in learning activities.

We’ve developed a short online survey, and we’d like as many people as possible to do the survey – to give us feedback on ASA.  The online survey will be sent out to you on 24th May 2019. 

The survey only takes 5 minutes to do – please take the time to fill it in.

If you would like to be sent the survey again, please contact us at contact@adviceskillsacademy.org.uk
