Numbers of further education and work-based learning activities pursued by learners either domiciled in Wales, or attending institutions in Wales

Post-16 Education and Training

Last update: 22 August 2013

Next update: May 2014 (Provisional)

Source: Lifelong Learning Wales Record (LLWR); Post-16 Pupil Level Annual Schools Census (PLASC); and Individualised Learner Record (ILR)

This dataset gives a detailed breakdown of learning activities pursued by post-16 learners (excluding those enrolled at Higher Education institutions) either domiciled in Wales, or attending institutions in Wales, giving details of the area of residence of each learner pursuing the activity, the provider at which the activity is based, the subject, the type of learning aim (e.g. GNVQ) and the medium of delivery (English only, Welsh only or bilingual).

The data for School Sixth Forms based in England has not been included in the 2011/12 reports.

Following the initial publication of the 2011/12 data, a coding error was identified. This error concerned the incorrect categorisation of two learning providers as Further Education Institutions instead of Work Based Learning Consortia. The data has since been republished with revised figures, and any figures affected by this revision have been annotated.

To avoid potential disclosure of learners through their activities, figures are rounded to the nearest 5, and whilst true zeros are displayed, any values of 1, 2, 3 or 4 are suppressed using a '*' symbol.

To avoid the presence of many suppressed figures, it is thus advisable to limit the number of dimensions viewed at any time in this table, by viewing only the total for those dimensions which are not of interest.

These data are classed as National Statistics.
