Qualification achievement rates (QARs) give one measure of how well further education (FE) colleges and training organisations perform in each year. QARs calculate what proportion of learning was successfully completed. The result is shown as a percentage figure.


Overall pass rate is the number of learners on programme who have passed the qualification. Retention rate is the % of learners starting the programme who stay on programme for the academic year.
