* We measure the impact of each event by completing student feedback surveys/Microsoft Forms, Parent/Carer surveys (where applicable), verbal feedback via Student Voice and tutor feedback.
These evaluations include how students rated the sessions, whether they delivered the information required, etc… From this feedback we can measure how successful the events were received, whether the aim of the sessions were achieved and what improvements can be made for future sessions *
