Note that all data will be collected and stored as part of an ongoing study. 
We ask that you answer all questions as honestly as possible. Please be assured that complete confidentiality will be observed at all times and that no individual or organisation will be identified as the source of any specific data.

This year, we have new bandings to help compare to similar employability roles with other similar sized organisations. Typically organisations will be segmented into the following bands; 

Band         Organisation (self selected)
Band A       Large contract holders, such as award winners of tier 1 DWP CAEHRS Framework Providers
Band B       Organisations awarded smaller contracts, like tier 2 CAEHRS
Band C       Small providers, locally based, specialist or sole traders
