Overview: To inform stakeholders about the performance of the sector, and to help colleges benchmark their performance against other similar colleges thereby supporting a wider quality improvement agenda.

Note: Some of the results for a small number of colleges will change for 2014-15 and 2015-16 as a result of ongoing statistical quality assurance work and this will have a small impact on the sector figures for those years. As a result we delayed the publication from the original date of 30 January 2018 to allow for some additional quality assurance checks by SFC and Colleges.

*Publication was delayed by a further two weeks as a result of additional quality assurance work related to the categorisation of SVQ level qualifications.
