Data regarding how many GSCC approved SWD courses there were in England in 2009/10 and the characteristics of these courses is presented. This is followed by data regarding the characteristics of students who enrolled on the SWD. Two sections report on the data that the GSCC gathered from Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) as part of the annual monitoring of institutions that are providing the SWD. These sections provide an overview of the data that the HEIs provided to the GSCC as part of their self-assessment, as well as the response that the GSCC gave to each institution on the basis of this data.Detailed SWD results data is also provided, giving an overview of the characteristics of those passing and not passing.
