According to data recently published by the Department for Education (DfE), Capital City College Group are number one of all colleges and college Groups in London, overall and for positive 16-18 progression. We are also very highly rated among London providers for getting adults into work, and for both learner and employer satisfaction.

The DfE data, which covers all England’s further education colleges, was aggregated by FE Week magazine for its annual FE ‘league table’ called NICDEX. This year’s NICDEX was published in November and gives the Group a score out of 10 for four measures:

  1. Percentage of 16-18 students with positive progression – we scored 9 out of 10 with 81%
  2. Learner satisfaction – we scored 8 out of 10 with 84%
  3. Employer satisfaction – we scored 9 out of 10 with 86.4%
  4. Percentage of adult students moving into paid employment – we scored 4 out of 10 with 37%.

Using these measures, NICDEX also gives an overall score out of 40. Not only is Capital City College Group rated first in London for positive 16-18 progression, we also scored highly compared to other London providers for the other three measures. In addition, our overall score of 30 ranks us highest out of London’s colleges and college groups, and joint 16th nationally – out of 171 colleges and college groups.

Commenting on the figures, Roy O’Shaughnessy, Group Chief Executive said: “This data is very pleasing. I am delighted that the Group and our three colleges have been rated so highly by our learners and those employers that we work in partnership with.

“Our excellent ratings for 16-18 and adult progression also reinforces my own view, that we are transforming the lives of so many Londoners and helping them to achieve their ambitions and dreams.”
