The 2019 Victorian Student and Employer Satisfaction Survey results released by the Victorian Department of Education and Training (DET) show strong satisfaction from employers and students for MCIE – the data measures high on both quality and performance.
The Department of Education and Training (DET), Victoria, under its Victorian Student and Employer Satisfaction Survey 2019, measured the responses of over 53,900 students from across 350 Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) and over 9,200 responses from employers of trainees and apprentices about their training experiences and outcomes related to their respective RTOs.
The students were asked questions ranging from how and why they chose the training, their satisfaction with the training and their employment situation after the training. The employer feedback comprised of the satisfaction levels on the training experiences of their apprentice(s)/and or trainee(s) with their training providers.
For MCIE, the results for both Student Satisfaction Survey and Employer Satisfaction Survey show strong satisfaction from both employers and students. A testament to MCIE’s continued focus on providing practical education that leads to real-life job outcomes, the results also reflect on our commitment to providing an enriching learning environment focused on student centricity and high quality teaching and training standards.
