Achievement rates of students at City of Wolverhampton College have improved for the fourth consecutive year.
Overall success rates for 16-18-year-olds continued to improve during the 2019/20 academic year, following on from the college being ranked the highest in the West Midlands in 2018/19.
Performance data from all further education providers is collated by the Department for Education and published in the annual National Achievement Rate Tables (NARTs) however, due to the coronavirus pandemic, data for the 2019/20 academic year will not be published.
Ian Browne, vice principal for student success at the college, said: “Even though the national data is not being published due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are delighted that our internal assessment has shown that achievement rates among our 16–18-year-old students has improved for the fourth year running.
“We know that the latter part of the 2019/20 academic year brought challenges with the college having to close and lessons switching to being delivered online, as part of the government’s crisis response, however we are extremely proud of how our students adapted to the new arrangements and our results show that they embraced the new ways of working and remained committed to achieving their qualifications.”
