ATQF Questionnaire Data Report
Each year, all learners and employers associated with Gowrie Victoria are independently surveyed to provide feedback on course content, trainers, assessment and communication. Registered training organisations must publish a copy of their most recent AQTF Quality Indicators in relation to Learner Engagement, Employer Satisfaction and Competency Completion.
These indicators are based on a survey of 72 learners and 4 employers. The learners and employers surveyed for these indicators were selected by this organisation in accordance with national guidelines.
Gowrie Victoria is committed to continuous improvement and uses the reports to review and revise its processes to deliver high quality learning experiences for learners.
