ESFA: qualification achievement rates (QARs) for 2019 to 2020

The ESFA previously confirmed that we will not publish any institution-level QARs in the national achievement rate tables for the 2019 to 2020 academic year in response to COVID-19.

They also announced that data will not be used by others, such as Ofsted, local authorities or devolved authorities or within ESFA and DFE, to hold institutions to account. Therefore, the ESFA will not supply 2019 to 2020 QARs for institutions to use internally themselves.

The ESFA are currently reviewing what data they will publish for statistical purposes in 2021 for the 2019 to 2020 QARs but, it will not contain any data at institution level.

You are still able to check your data is accurate. The Inform May 2019 article explains which funding monitoring reports impact on QARs and some of the common data issues we encounter.
