Overall 80% of learners achieved success, an increase on 75% in session 2010/2011 and 74% in session 2009/2010.
Exams were undertaken in a range of programmes including Intermediate 1 and 2, Higher and Skills for Work.
Forth Valley College Principal, Linda McKay said:
We are absolutely delighted with the results and would like to congratulate our learners on their achievements. These extremely positive pass rates are testament to the hard work of our learners and they should feel very proud. The qualifications they have gained will stand them in good stead for a successful future and we’re proud to have played a part in that.
“Some of our learners will soon be returning to progress to a more advanced course and we look forward to welcoming them at the start of session. There are also those who will now be considering their next step, either looking to get on the career ladder or progressing to further study. We can offer lots of advice on finding your perfect job or the right course to help you achieve your aspirations in the future. And with a tough employment market and increasing demand for courses at colleges and universities across the UK, we can also offer top tips for standing out from the crowd.
“Of course inevitably there will be some learners who have been disappointed with their results. Again, we offer a full range of support services and can help them find a solution to move forward. We would ask anyone in this situation to get in touch as soon as possible to discuss their options. ”
