Qualification success rates for 2013 to 2014: archive

An explanation of the way in which qualification success rates are calculated.



As part of the government’s simplification agenda the Skills Funding Agency are making changes to the way they calculate the qualification success rates for 2013 to 2014.

The approach to the calculation of qualification success rates for 2013 to 2014 will include the following changes:

  • results will be calculated consistently for all provision areas and will be the overall and timely methods used currently for apprenticeships and workplace provision

  • we will publish timely success rates for information and transparency purposes

  • the overall method will continue to be the primary calculation, used for public information and to assess minimum standards for 2013 to 2014
