Mr. Boris Johnson: To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills what the non-completion rate was of students on (a) prescribed and (b) non-prescribed higher education courses in further education colleges in each of the last five years. 
Bill Rammell: The Learning and Skills Council provides success rates of students studying at English further education colleges. These are the number of qualifications achieved expressed as a percentage of the number started. Success rates for learners studying for level 4, 5 or higher level courses are provided here as a proxy for higher education, and many of these courses are likely to be non-prescribed higher education. The success rates are shown in the table:
