    Can anybody help with the formula to work out retention rates please?

    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

    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

    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?

    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?

    I think the denominator should be “no. completers / (no. completers + no. leavers)” so 75 / (52+75) = 75/127 = 59%

    Normally say you had 100 leavers and of those 80 completed their programme, this would give you a retention rate of 80%

    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
