An odd update!

Submitted by: MikeC (Admin) on 16-Oct-07 05:38:46 PM

Well, Peter Ambrose of The Partnership Ltd heard a rumour of a possible 'major ministerial announcement' to be made today - I don't think he thought it would amount to another DEA numbers update, however.

So here we go then (boy is this becoming tedious!):

Assessor Numbers as of 16th October 2007
StageNumber of assessors/candidates
Accredited 5150 (+494)
Qualified 976 (-291)
Passed exams 3622 (-136)
Total in system who have passed exams or progressed further 9748 (+67)

OK I'm not going to over-analyse this because, quite frankly, it's tea-time!

Briefly then; it's been 12 working days since the last update when we witnessed an average rate of 34.1 accreditations per day. This period it works out to 41.2 - Reversing a downward trend.

But wait! Total numbers entering the system has dropped considerably: Just 67!

And that's over 12 working days - Last time it worked out to an average of 356 per week!


Regional distribution of accredited Domestic Energy Assessors

DEAs accredited by region
RegionNumber Accredited as of 16th Oct 2007
North West 627 (+49)
North East 229 (+23)
Yorkshire & the Humber 421 (-)
East Midlands 362 (+43)
West Midlands 494 (+33)
East of England 531 (+46)
London 407 (+32)
South East 858 (+78)
South West 628 (+55)
Wales 277 (+27)
Unknown 316 (+108)
Total 5150 (+494)

Tell you what though... that "Unknown" row looks suspiciously high: From 208 to 316? That seems an extra-ordinary rise.

No increase in Yorkshire and Humberside?

Also, a couple of minor differences from the usual format:

Eastern has been renamed East of England; and whereas the North West has always been the first region to be listed in the official Govt table; this time it is the North East.

Ministerial announcement

Well ... was THAT a let down - we had been hearing rumours all day which we ignored, then got a call late in the evening for more details about a particular story "for the ministerial announcement due tomorrow".

Without wishing to light any fires, we were genuinely convinced that this was going to be something of interest.

We were sadly disappointed... so far!

Heheh - You'd think we'd all know better by now, Peter, wouldn't you!
