Learner destinations for further education institutions and school sixth forms for August 2015 to July 2016.
This is not the latest release in the series: Consistent performance measures for post-16 learning (learner destinations)
Whilst the measures are still in development, as we continue to work through methodology and data quality issues, we are able to provide a first set of experimental statistics.
This report looks at the destinations of learners (i.e. what a learner moves on to do after a programme of learning), including those undertaking work-based learning. A separate report provides information on learner achievement. These are experimental data and we will undertake further consultation with learning providers on the methodology.
Of the 116,080 learners finishing a learning programme in 2015/16:
- 81% had a sustained positive destination into either employment or learning, one percentage point lower than 2014/15
- 55% were in sustained employment, of which 22% were also in sustained learning
- 48% were in sustained learning, of which 22% were also in sustained employment.
Post-16 learners are those studying in further education institutions, school sixth forms and in work-based learning (apprenticeships, traineeships and other employability programmes). Note that finishing a learning programme does not necessarily constitute ‘a leaver’. For example those completing A-levels will have first completed a programme of AS level study, followed by an A2 programme.
