This report provides detail on supplementary tables that complement the August 2014 publication Adult further education: outcome based success measures. The breakdowns come from the same administrative data sources and add context by showing sustained employment, sustained learning and sustained positive destination rates for over 1,000 distinct learning aims completed in 2010/11.

As described in the main report these data are experimental and have been published to support further dialogue and future consultations with the sector over how data like these should be used in the future. It is not recommended to use the data to directly compare qualifications at this stage whilst the methodology and underpinning sources are developed further to include, for example, information on the self-employed. Additionally these tables do not take into account the intended outcomes of a qualification or the clientele that complete different qualifications, for example some courses may have higher proportions of learners who were claiming benefits immediately before the start of their course.

Research using the same administrative data shows that when comparing learners with similar characteristics, those who achieve Further Education qualifications are better off than those who start but do not achieve.
