Questions marked with an * are required Exit Survey
Health Education England is taking part in a global study to understand how staff members are learning and what they need to do their jobs. With technology developing so fast it’s important that we continue to make learning accessible to everyone when they need it and in a way that works for them.
Your views are really important to us, and we’re keen to know how you use technology to help you learn and do your job – so thanks for taking part!
Confidentiality - your views are being gathered confidentially on our behalf by research company Towards Maturity. You don’t have to provide your contact details unless you’d like to be contacted directly about your comments. The questions should take around 15 minutes to complete. When you’re finished, you’ll be taken to a page where you can ask questions or leave further feedback.
