FE Choices statistics for the Success Rates indicator were updated on the 01 March 2013. They can be viewed at http://fechoices.skillsfundingagency.bis.gov.uk/
. This includes detailed, provider-level results.
The prime purpose of FE Choices is to provide clear, comparable information to learners and employers so they can make informed choices about post-16 further education and training (not including schools). It provides valuable information to help providers continually assess their performance against others in the sector and ensure they are meeting commitments to their customers.
FE Choices enables users to search and compare provider ratings for each of the following performance indicators:
• Success Rates
• Learner Destinations (including Employment Rate and Learning Rate);
• Learner Satisfaction; and
• Employer Satisfaction.
Users will also be able to ‘drill down’ within each of these indicators, to view more detailed information. For example, on Success Rates, a learner will be able to tell the percentage of learners by age and by type of qualification who achieve the qualification that they started in different Sector Subject Areas e.g. Science and Mathematics, Health, Public Services and Care, Information and Communication Technology etc.
Further detail on the definition of each performance indicator can be found at:
Information on each of these performance indicators is available by five different categories of provider type;
• General Further Education Colleges, including Tertiary;
• Sixth Form Colleges;
• Special Colleges (Agriculture and Horticultural Colleges and Art and Design Colleges) and Specialist Colleges;
• Other Public Funded Institutions delivering FE; and
• Private Sector Public Funded Institutions.
Results at National level and by provider type for each performance indicator are shown in the table below.
The table also shows the results by individual provider for each performance indicator.
