  1. The achiever figures in the Skills Index differ from those in other DfE publications. See Skills Index methodology for details.
  2. In 2016/17 a number of Full Level 2 and Full Level 3 qualifications were reclassified, but the value-added assigned to these qualifications in the Skills Index is still based on their original classification. See Skills Index methodology for details.
