Accreditations slowing - Newbies increasing

Submitted by: MikeC (Admin) on 05-Oct-07 03:06:20 PM

Here we go again - 10 working days since the last DEA numbers update (when the numbers of accredited DEAs stood at 4315) and once again, we are asked to stand patiently in line for another slap.

Here's the breakdown:

Assessor Numbers as of 1st October 2007
StageNumber of assessors/candidates
Accredited 4656
Qualified 1267
Passed exams 3758
Total in system who have passed exams or progressed further 9681

New Accreditations

OK, so we've seen an average of 34.1 accreditations per day (341 in total).

Now, the Govt continues to mess with our heads due its haphazard release schedule, making comparisons tricky.

Last time we had to perform some extrapolation to arrive at a daily average of 47 accreditations - That resulted in showing a total of 506 new accreditations over an eleven day period - 4 days of which, were extrapolated.

I think, however, it's easy to see that there is a still a continuing downward trend in the pace of new DEAs falling out of the sausage machine.

Good news then eh?

Total in the system

Last time - again, through extrapolation - we found a weekly average of 231 new people entering the system - a decrease from 372.

This time? Not so good... 356 per week (average)

I haven't "un-extrapolised" the previous update for comparison because it only makes for a more depressing read.
