Statistics release announcement

Further Education & Skills: Learner Participation, Outcomes and Level of Highest Qualification Held

Further education and skills data for the first two quarters of the 2015/16 academic year (reported to date) and statistics on the highest level of qualification held by adults in England from 2008 to 2015 (provisional). The 2014/15 Quality Achievement Rate (QAR) tables have been delayed due to changes to the collection and storage of the data. This means that the tables will not be part of the Statistical First Release on 23 March. They will follow as supplementary tables once the data have been fully quality assured. We expect this to be within two weeks of the main release. Update: statistics on the highest level of qualification held by adults in England from 2008 to 2014 (provisional) will not be updated in this SFR.
