The information I have is Count of learners that have appeared in the 17/18 batch Count of Completers (Those either achieved or remained on programme for the full duration of the apprenticeship) Count of leavers that did not stay on programme for the duration of the apprenticeship and did not achieve Count of those still currently live Thanks June 12, 2018 at 11:07 am #264226 KarenSParticipant Hi, Are you working it out for learning aims? If yes, then it is the number of learning aims that have successfully completed divided by the number of learning aims that have ended x 100 For learners it is number of completors divided by count of leavers x 100 HTH Karen June 12, 2018 at 11:23 am #264232 gfrederickParticipant Thanks Karen, It is currently Learner retention but I will be looking at learning aims next. This is where I’m being thrown off. My current completers are 75 and my leavers are 52 which gives me a retention rate of 144% is this correct? June 12, 2018 at 11:33 am #264234 KarenSParticipant Have your current completers completed all of their learning aims/the whole programme or just aspects of it and are in fact still in learning? June 12, 2018 at 11:43 am #264236 Martin LocockParticipant I think the denominator should be “no. completers / (no. completers + no. leavers)” so 75 / (52+75) = 75/127 = 59% June 12, 2018 at 11:44 am #264238 KarenSParticipant Normally say you had 100 leavers and of those 80 completed their programme, this would give you a retention rate of 80% June 12, 2018 at 11:45 am #264240 gfrederickParticipant The 75 completers are those that have achieved the full framework (all learning aims) or have surpassed their planned end date then left without achievement June 12, 2018 at 11:49 am #264242 Viewing 7 posts - 1 through 7 (of 7 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
