Learner destinations for further education institutions and school sixth forms for August 2016 to July 2017.

This report looks at the destinations of post-16 learners (i.e. what a learner moves on to do after a programme of learning), including those undertaking work-based learning.

This bar chart shows the destinations of post 16 learners for the academic years 2014/15 to 2016/17.  It shows that 83% of all learners leaving post 16 education in 2016/17 had a sustained destination in 2017/18, with 81% in 2015/16 and 82% in 2014/15.

Main points

Of the 114,740 learners finishing a learning programme in 2016/17:

  • 83% had a sustained destination in 2017/18 into either employment or learning which is two percentage points higher than for 2015/16 learners and one percentage point higher than 2014/15
  • 57% were in sustained employment, of those 41% were also in sustained learning
  • 49% were in sustained learning, of those 47% were also in sustained employment

Further information

This is part of a set of three consistent performance measures that have been developed for post-16 education. A separate report provides information on learner achievement. These are experimental data and we will undertake further consultation with learning providers on the methodology.
