Student Progress Success
East Durham College has seen some great results in our A Level Performance System (ALPS) for Value Added performance in 2015/16 which also include BTEC Level 3s.
This is an important measure as it compares the GCSE results a student has when they arrive at college with their A Level/BTEC Level 3 results when they leave. It measures the progress students made with us and if it was above, below or in line with their expected results based on their scores when they started at college.
