Making sense of achievement rates

        You’ve summited your final learner data for last year (ILR R14) and by the time of this webinar you’ll have submitted your ILR R06 for this year – so the achievement rates for 2021/22 can’t be changed.

        In this technical webinar, for all providers that submit an ILR, Nick will unpick and unpack everything you need to know about achievement rates.

        Set targets, monitor your performance and stay out of intervention…you need to understand how achievement rates are calculated and what yours means for you. Protect yourself and your reputation!

        Very practical training with lots of worked examples (for training providers, colleges, HEIs and employer providers). And all delegates will be sent the materials and a copy of the webinar recording.

        So join Nick Linford, author of the Hand-on guide to post-16 data, for this technical and in depth workshop.
