About MiDES

MiDES is a service developed by RCU Limited and the Association of Colleges (AoC) for member colleges. The service provides AoC college members with a regularly updated suite of in-year benchmarked intelligence reports on a variety of key themes and topics, such as recruitment, curriculum, value added progress measures, retention and progression.

Participating colleges upload their anonymised learner data to the secure MiDES data server at regular points throughout the year creating a unique sector-owned shared dataset. This creates a hugely powerful data resource for the AoC at national level and individual college members  who receive valuable, in-year benchmarked reports.

The value of being able to harness in-year data for decision-making within colleges is significant as is the potential for the MiDES reports to contribute to business and curriculum planning as well as to the Self Assessment Report process.

Access to college specific reports requires a user name and password.
