A separate polling of Digital Academies clients (n=24) shows that the participants’ assessment of their prospects of getting a job and, related to it, their knowledge of available options have improved. Both areas have been scored as ‘improved a lot’ by 86.4% vs. ‘improved a little’ by 23.6%.
Here’s a selection of some of the positive comments from clients:

Additionally, we have surveyed participants who have attended our ESOL courses in Hillingdon. The classes have been delivered in collaboration with REAP (Refugees in Effective and Active Partnership) who organised the venue and promoted the classes. The learners were mostly asylum seekers most of whom were residents of hotels around Heathrow and had no recourse to public funds. For many of them these classes were the only opportunity to access language classes.
21 participants have responded to our survey. All participants surveyed enjoyed the course. They thought the course was ‘excellent’, the lessons were useful and fun, the atmosphere was friendly, and that coming to the classes was like ‘we were a family reuniting’!
Most of the learners (91%) also reported greater confident in using English and more personal independence in situations such as going to the GP, shopping, making friends
81% said they were more confident in using the Internet.
81% reported that they practised English every day and spent more time using English compared to BEFORE they started the course.
Needless to say, we are very pleased with the results of our surveys and will continue to work with our clients in order to continue to improve so we can offer the best service possible.
