Impact Measurement Study
Crehana Impact Performance Snapshot
The majority of students accessing Crehana’s learning platform are first time online learners and report being able to quickly apply what they are learning, noting that overall Crehana has positively changed their lives in a variety of ways.
Quality Of Life
77% reported that their quality of life has improved.
73% reported using the skills that they learned in their jobs.
82% say their confidence in themselves and their abilities has improved .
Two thirds of those who were able to apply the skills learned in their jobs were able to do so within days.
Crehana generates social impact by helping users gain usable skills, which they can then apply to improve career development outcomes. This impact study sought to understand how learners were impacted by their use of Crehana's courses.
In addition to contribution to an overall improvement in self-reported quality of life, the content Crehana produces across its platform appears to be highly applicable, as 7 out of 10 students had used what they had learned in their work, most within a matter of days.
The project, conducted in partnership with 60 Decibels, was implemented using an online survey delivered to a random sample of Crehana users across main countries where the company had a user base (as of early 2021).
