Project Description

Using administrative data to measure FE outcomes

The performance of training providers was previously based on the outcomes of their learners, as observed in large-scale surveys.  This project assessed whether administrative data on learning, benefits, employment and earnings could replace surveys as the basis for deriving performance measures.
