2016 to 2017

To accompany the 2016 to 2017 National Achievement Rate Tables, a number of other tables are made available to give transparency to the system:

  1. Newcastle College Group (NCG) components - the NCG QAR used for performance management has been included in the detailed NART tables. NCG have been undertaking a specific pilot for data collection arrangements. We have included a table that gives the headline figures for those individual providers that make up the constituent parts of Newcastle College Group.

  2. Merged Colleges – where a college merger has taken place during the 2016 to 2017 academic year, NARTs will show the aggregated view for the merged college. We have provided the headline figures for those individual colleges that make up the constituent parts of the merger.

  3. Redactions – we redact providers from our formal performance tables (NARTs) where we are unable to form a reliable QAR. This is done where the data we hold does not allow us to calculate a reliable estimate and therefore provides an unfair measure of performance. However, we publish headline information for these providers separately for transparency. The underpinning data is included in our national achievement rates to provide a complete view of performance.

The 3 year time-series spreadsheets for 2016 to 2017 are available along with the rest of the NARTs tables here.

2015 to 2016

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. Therefore 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 assessed what additional information we can publish to allow for some comparability at provider level for earlier years based on 2015 to 2016 methodology. Those years provided are the same as those provided at national level in the SFR. These estimates are limited and do not fully replicate the 2015 to 2016 methodology for earlier years’ data. Data included here are the apprenticeships overall and timely headline data by institution, and the education and training overall and timely headline data by institution for the 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 academic years.

We also provide data here for all redactions from the 2015 to 2016 academic year. 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 publish them separately. In no way do they constitute a formal qualification achievement rate for those institutions and should not be used in such a way and/or for comparisons.
