Metrics

As part of the Department for Education accreditation every NPQ Provider must report the data below to DfE/its QA agent to assess the provider’s performance against the metric.

Below is a breakdown of SSAT’s reported performance against each of the metrics from the NPQML quality framework. The quality framework is publicly available here. Providers must publish the data identified as part of ‘Requirement E – Transparency.’
