Class 7: How we are performing

Information about how we perform as an organisation, and how well we deliver our functions and services.

Indicators used by the governing body and senior management to measure overall institutional performance

Inverness College UHI apply the national performance indicators (PI) as used by the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) and Education Scotland (ES).  These include:

  • Student activity overall
  • Student retention and attainment generally
  • Enrolment, retention and attainment for specific learner groups

Inverness College UHI latest published performance indicators are available here.

We also monitor student achievement at module/unit level. All of the PIs are compared annually against national statistics and over a number of years in order to map trends. These PIs are evaluated by our programme teams and are monitored by our quality unit and senior management. The Board of Management and its relevant committees receive and review PI data during each academic year and consider the overall trends.
