Back to the future figures

Well done to the Learning and Skills Council, which has made time travel a reality, according to sharp-eyed FErret reader Bob Vesey, director of student information and learning systems at Harrow College.

The LSC's skills and education network newsletter (subtitle: sharing evidence and good practice) says: "More learners are achieving their goals thanks to the Government's Success for All scheme. College success rates for all qualifications have increased from 59 per cent in 200001 to 65 per cent in 200102."

Impressive. Particularly when you consider that Success for All was not launched until November 2002.
