Surveys are a great way to hear from lots of people quickly and cost-effectively. Information is usually collected via a questionnaire, which can be distributed electronically, on paper, or even via an interview. Perhaps the best-known survey is the Census.

There are many types of survey. Which one you choose will depend on your purpose, the timescale for collecting the results, and the resources available.

Our training course gives practical advice and guidance to help you prepare, produce and design surveys and analyse the resulting data.

In this course we will cover:

  • survey design
  • the most common sampling techniques
  • how to construct survey questions
  • how to pilot and run a survey
  • how to analyse and present the results.

Who the course is for

This training course is aimed at local government colleagues. Please note: there is a maximum of two delegates per council.

The course is intentionally ‘basic’ in its approach and content, and is aimed at beginners. No previous knowledge of survey design or analysis is required.

Please note, this course will be delivered in English only. All materials will be available in Welsh. The course will last about 2.5 hours.

Booking closes on 21 February 2023.
