Higher Skills Learners - Achievement (2019-20 Year-End)

Outcomes for Learners

Higher achievement rate

Bar chart showing achievement rate for Higher Education learners

Due to the exceptional Covid-19 impact on learning, all HE students who were retained but not yet achieved by the end of the 2019/20 academic year, were permitted to continue their studies into the following year. Therefore, the notional HE classroom-based achievement rate for 2019/20 of 100% is not directly comparable with the 87% previous year.

Similarly, the 100% achievement rate on HE apprenticeships in 2019/20 is based upon completers only. Any HE apprentices retained, but not yet achieved at the end of 2019/20, were permitted to continue their studies in 2020/21.
