what are vital stats?

To measure how we're doing against our four promises we created our 'Vital Stats' - a termly review where we speak to over 900 members and get their honest opinion on how we're doing.

In keeping with our no-bullshit mentality we then publish these as beautiful icons and infographics, so that all members, staff and stakeholders can see how we're getting on so far.

979 people took part in this survey 726 from Colchester, 141 in Southend,and 112 in Loughton and we've made these clever icons, which show the results of the latest survey when you click on them...

Here's the breakdown of responses:

Net Promoter Score

What is a Net Promoter Score? And how do we work this out?
 

Based on your answer to the "How likely are you to recommend us to a friend?" question, we calculate the NPS score in the following way : the percentage of students that gave us a score of 9 or 10,  substracted from the percentage of students who gave us a score of 6 or lower. Scores of 7 and 8 do not modify the net promoter score. The NPS shows us who our biggest fans, and critics are, to give us a realistic view of how members feel. The NPS is also a benchmarking technique that companies use all over the world.
