The aim of the survey was to provide a baseline and improve our understanding of the impact the pandemic has had on learners in Wales.

The survey was aimed at current learners aged 16 or older, in a school sixth form, further education or work-based or adult learning in college or in the community. 

It had three main areas of focus:

  1. current and pre-COVID-19 learning and learning choices
  2. learning experience and learning online and
  3. wellbeing and safety

There was also a short module on respondents’ experience of learning through the medium of Welsh and a brief demographics section at the end.

The survey was carried out online between 16 November and 20 December 2020, receiving 6,088 responses.
