NCVER Survey shows Royal College learners achieve their goals
At Royal College, we are committed to the belief that education should be human-centred — as such, results such as those from the NCVER survey are important to us. They add to our own feedback processes to ensure that we are always maximising the outcomes for our learners, and providing a rewarding training experience.
The results are in from the latest survey from the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER), and Royal College is on track, continuing to deliver training satisfaction and employment outcomes for learners. Informing and influencing the vocational education and training (VET) space in Australia drives NCVER’s research, and each year learners who have completed studies in the VET sector are invited to take part in their student outcomes survey.
Enhancing employment through quality training
Gaining meaningful outcomes for learners is a priority. Whether it’s upskilling in or entering aged care, where your studies take you really matters.
With employment — gaining employment or career progression — a key focus area for most learners, 96.4% of Royal College learners were employed or enrolled in further study after training with us.
The aged care learners at Royal College reported meeting their goals, with 85.8% of Royal College learners achieving their main reason for completing training.
It’s vital that our graduates receive a high standard of training so that they leave with the knowledge, skills and confidence to succeed.
Supporting the aged care sector
When assessing what makes a course successful or of high quality, its commitment to its relevant sector is essential. A course should know the sector it is catering to inside and out, with a goal of raising the standard and supporting it to thrive.
We were pleased to find that 91.3% of our learners found Royal College’s aged care training relevant to their job. This demonstrates that we are meeting the needs of our learners, their chosen sectors, the workforce and those who rely on them.
Distance learning with optimal support
As we, along with much of the world, shifted to studying online from the onset of the pandemic, optimising the distance and online learning experiences was of paramount importance.
We didn’t want our learners to feel that they would miss out by taking a course via distance learning, so our approach meant that learners received a dedicated trainer and comprehensive support regardless of their course delivery mode.
This commitment to our learners helps to make sure they can achieve their goals in aged care. This is reflected in the survey results with 93.7% of survey respondents employed after training. Of these, 88.5% received at least one job-related benefit!
Striving for continual improvement and growth
The results of the annual NCVER Survey are promising and tell us that Royal College’s aged care courses are meeting the needs of learners.
That said, it is always important to identify where there is room for improvement. We look forward to continuing to listen and take on feedback to enhance the way we consider, design and deliver high quality vocational education.
Together we can all reach our full potential. Learn more about studying aged care with Royal College here.
