Success rates are due

The Young People’s Learning Agency (YPLA) will publish 2009/10 school and academy 16-19 qualification success rates on February 2.

The 16-19 success rates show, at a headline level, the proportion of young people that start a qualification in an institution and achieve it by the end of the required period of study.

This measure has been used in the college sector for many years and is considered to be a key indicator of an institution’s performance.

School and academy success rates are not yet directly compatible with college success rates, say the YPLA.
