The statistics on learner numbers in post-16 education and training include data for Wales for the period August 2017 to July 2018.
This report summarises data on learners in post-16 education and training excluding those at higher education institutions and schools but including further education institutions (FEIs), other work-based learning providers and community learning provision collected via the Welsh Government’s Lifelong Learning Wales Record (LLWR).
There were 166,640 learners at FEIs, community learning or work-based learning providers during 2017/18. Due to data submission changes(1) 2017/18 data is not directly comparable with earlier years.
118,590 unique learners at FE institutions, 44% of which were part-time.
12,680 unique learners in local authority community learning.
Total work-based learner numbers increased by 15%.
(1) From 1 August 2017, information relating to learning activities not funded by the Welsh Government, and Welsh for Adults provision in further education institutions is no longer collected through the LLWR.
