  1. The number of certificates awarded in the third quarter of 2019 was just over 2.3 million certificates, a decrease of 2.3% compared to the third quarter of 2018.

  2. This fall in the number of certificates reflects a greater trend in the overall decline in certificates for vocational qualifications over time. This may be caused by a tightening in the availability of funding.

  3. The figures show a 96% decrease in the number of certificates awarded in QCF qualifications compared to Q3 2018. This is due to the term QCF being removed from a large number of qualification titles (after the removal of regulatory arrangements).
