The SFA and EFA benchmarking tool lets colleges compare their financial performance and ratios for different years against other colleges.
The data used in this benchmarking package is taken from the finance record returns submitted by further education and sixth form colleges for the financial year ended 31 July 2014.
The 2011 and 2012 further education benchmarking tools can be used in Microsoft 2007 Excel or later versions of Excel. It will not run in pre-2007 versions of Excel.
The benchmarking package has been commissioned in partnership with the Association of Colleges (AoC), Education Funding Agency (EFA) and College Finance Directors Group (CFDG) as an integral element of the College Financial Reporting Project.
