  • Release date: 30 July 2013
  • Period covered: 2011/12
An annual report which provides geographical analysis of post-16 learners by age, type of provider, learning aim and programme type.

Revision note

Following publication, a data coding error was identified. This error concerned the incorrect categorisation of two learning providers as Further Education Institutions instead of Work Based Learning Consortia. As such, Table 2 of this bulletin, along with the associated bullet points, has been revised.

Key points

  • The total number of Welsh domiciled learners was 6 per cent lower in 2011/12 than in 2010/11.
  • In 2011/12 there were 278,510 learners domiciled in Wales and pursuing learning at a further education (FE) institution, other training provider, local authority community learning provider, or FE institution or provider located in England.
  • 65 per cent of learners were enrolled at Welsh FE institutions (including their training subsidiaries), 14 per cent were enrolled at other training providers, 7 per cent were enrolled at local authority community learning providers, 11 per cent were enrolled at school sixth forms and 3 per cent were enrolled at English providers.
