Overall Success Rate excluding non-respondents.
Many other programs do not include non-respondents in their success rate calculations. If we used this method the above percentage of new McGuire Programme members would have been rated successful.

In 2017, 332 people joined the McGuire Programme. Of these, 245 members (74%) were confirmed to be successful by our Evaluation Auditors (B+ or higher). These members were evaluated 12-18 months after their first course.

Furthermore, an impressive 98% of people who took advantage of the Programme’s lifetime support for at least 6 months after their first course were confirmed as successful.

Although we have several categories of “success,” audited evaluations where non-contactable (NCs) are factored in as unsuccessful remains the most valid indicator of our true success rate.  In 2017, that success rate was 74%.

Two things about this audit are remarkable:

  1. There was a dramatic improvement over last year’s 63% success rate for those who joined us in 2016. Although we’re not sure why there was such a drop in success for 2016, improvements to the accountability standards of Primary Coaches and more emphasis on the follow-up support are most likely the main reasons for the dramatic improvement.
  2. Five McGuire Programme Regions achieved success rates of over 80%
  • India at 100% (Regional Director, Kaushik Valluri)
  • Germany at 90% (RD, Emmet O’Connell)
  • Australia at 88% (RD, Denis Wright)
  • South Africa at 86% (RDs, Chris Meintjes and Julia Jensen)
  • UK South (RD, Matt Wilton).
