93% of FVC students reach a positive destination

Figures recently released show that 93% of Forth Valley College’s full-time students move on to a positive destination after completing their course.

A positive destination means a student has either gained employment or moved on to further training or higher education. The figures released for 2019/20 are even more remarkable considering they correspond with the first pandemic lockdown and  the transition to online remote learning that had to become the norm for students for many months during their final academic term.

Another encouraging statistic to come out of the latest figures – which are published by the Scottish Funding Council – is that a total of 94% of FVC’s full-time students in the range of Higher Education courses, moved on to a positive destination.

It has also been reported that FVC’s figures for 2019/20 are above the sector average for the whole of Scotland.

Forth Valley College Principal Dr Ken Thomson OBE, said: “We’re delighted with these figures which prove we continue to offer quality learning experiences which help our students achieve their goals. The report does seem to show that due to the pandemic more full-time students are opting for moving on to higher education after college rather than entering an unsure job-market however this is a position which is reflected across the sector. But any way you look at these figures it shows what a wonderful job Forth Valley College has done to help its students to progress to a positive destination. Well done to everyone.”
