Opinionpanel wins major Panel Build project for Learning and Skills Council

Posted on 9th November 2009 by Youth

Opinionpanel, the online research agency, has won a major new panel build project for the Learning and Skills Council (LSC).

Opinionpanel has been commissioned to build and recruit The Learner Panel. Comprised of 10,000 learners from age 14 upwards in schools, training providers and colleges, and those learning in the workplace and for leisure – the panel will be an important source of insight into the ‘Learner Voice’ for the LSC and its successor organisations (the LSC is scheduled to be replaced by the Young People’s Learning Agency and the Skills Funding Agency in April 2010). It is hoped that The Learner Panel will also become an important resource for other organisations in the FE sector.

The project was awarded to Opinionpanel after an open tendering process managed by the Central Office of Information (COI). Opinionpanel joined the COI’s new Framework for market research agencies in summer 2009. Opinionpanel’s managing director, Ben Marks commented, “This is a fabulous win for us; we put in a lot of work for our bid and everyone here at Opinionpanel is delighted.” Opinionpanel first become involved in The Learner Panel after winning the smaller feasibility study project to build the panel in spring 2008. Charlotte Beckford of the LSC commented, “We hope that The Learner Panel will become a very important panel resource for the sector, and it represents an innovative way of accessing the views of learners across all age groups,”

Panel building will start immediately and will be completed by January 2010. Recruitment methods include telephone; direct online, Facebook and posters in schools and colleges.
