A range of outputs on the 2016 to 2017 qualification achievement rates (QARs), produced to that year’s published methodology, have been provided here. More detail on methodology is available at Qualification achievement rates 2016 to 2017.
Additionally we provide some tables with time series to provide transparency on how performance has changed over time. To provide comparable data we retrospectively apply the latest methodology to the previous 2 years. They can be found on the 2016 to 2017 NARTs page.
2015 to 2016 National achievement rates tables
A range of outputs on the 2015 to 2016 qualification achievement rates (QARs), produced to that year’s published methodology, have been provided here. More detail on methodology is available here.
National achievement rates tables (NARTs) are intended to provide estimates against the published methodology for that particular year.
The implementation of the improved methodology for the 2015 to 2016 qualification achievement rates led to a significant impact on the estimates compared to previous years. For the first time, we published a three-year comparison at the national level as part of the further education (FE) and skills statistical first release (SFR).
We have expanded this with further transparency data at an institutional level and included those that were redacted from the 2015 to 2016 NARTs. In no way do these data constitute a formal qualification achievement rate for these institutions and should not be used in such a way and/or for comparisons. All redactions are numbers that are considered not to provide a fair measure of performance of the provider but in the interests of transparency, we have published them separately.
National achievement rates tables
The NARTs are summary indicators of performance in apprenticeships and education and training. Individual providers use the data to benchmark their own targets and actual performance.
We produce the NARTs annually after the production of the qualification achievement rate reports.
