The value added score for our learners is a measure of their final grade compared to the grades and qualifications they achieved prior to their enrolment with us. It determines whether our learners are making enough progress with their studies. The chart shows that our overall value added score for A level programmes is 4, which indicates their performance is ‘very good’ overall. The table shows the percentage of courses that reported a high value added score (in dark orange), those with a low VA score (in grey) and the rest (in light orange), over the last three years. We are pleased to see the percentage of high performing courses increasing and the percentage of low performing courses decreasing.
