Bar chart showing percentage of high needs learners progression to advanced level

There was a significant improvement in learner progression in 22/23, with 57.6% of high needs learners progressing onto the next level of study. 45.3% returned on the same level, however, this would include those returning on the same level but larger size of qualifications e.g. Level 1 Certificate to Level 1 Diploma. 5.7% of learners returned on a lower-level qualification, most of which would be due to leaners moving into a differing curriculum area to their original study, where skills would require building.
