Technical & Professional Qualifications Bulletins 2018

These statistical bulletins present information on the number of certificates issued for Technical and Professional (Vocational) qualifications awarded in Northern Ireland on a quarterly basis. These qualifications are regulated by CCEA from May 2016. Before October – December (Q4 2017) Ofqual published aggregated data for England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Ofqual will continue to collect data for Northern Ireland, but CCEA will publish Northern Ireland data.

Data tables accompanying this release show the number of awards broken down by awarding organisation, sector subject area, type of qualification, and level of qualification.

Comparisons in this release are mainly made with data from the same quarter of the previous year and the 12-month period up to the end of the same quarter of the previous year. This is because of seasonal changes in the number of certificates issued over the year.

April to June 2018 (Quarter 2, 2018)
