College Performance Indicators

Student and staff performance indicators for Scotland’s further education colleges

In 2003, SFC published the first annual volume of student and staff performance indicators for colleges in Scotland.

These are now published as an annual series, and work continues to refine the indicators reported to ensure relevance and (where possible) comparability between colleges. Stakeholders provide input to this process as members of SFC's performance indicators development and advisory group.

The indicators cover areas such as student retention and achievement, staff qualifications, student satisfaction and outcomes of Education Scotland reviews. Indicators are reported at sector and individual college level.
