Vocational and other Qualifications Quarterly

This bulletin gives data on achievements for all regulated qualifications except GCSEs, GCEs (A levels) and the Diploma. The data covers England, Wales and Northern Ireland. There is some overlap between the figures in this bulletin and the Higher Qualifications Quarterly. Until the April to June 2012 bulletin, this was  known as the Vocational Qualifications Quarterly.

We are running a series of surveys to find out how we can improve our statistical publications. We would like to hear your views on our publications.

Our survey only takes a few minutes to complete:
