Quarterly and Annual Statistics Reports

We publish a report each quarter on the performance of all of our accredited qualifications. The report is broken down by qualification type, awarding body, qualification developer and qualification category.

Our approved awarding bodies are required to provide us with information relating to their accredited qualifications every quarter which we use to inform our statistics reports.

At the end of every financial year, an annual summary is also published.

You can download the Quarterly and Annual Statistics Reports along with the accompanying raw data files below.
