Learner outcome reports

Learner Outcomes Reports are summaries of the learner success rates achieved by each provider in Wales. The reports show colour-coded information on success rates – the percentage of all qualifications that are achieved by learners – and learner progressions into employment or further learning (for WBL providers).

We publish these reports annually to inform learners, employers, parents and the general public about the outcomes of provision funded by the Welsh Government.

Please note the Learner Outcomes reports were previously available on the Learning and Skills Observatory (LSO) website.
