[Collapse]LDD statusThis dimension indicates whether the learner has a learning difficulty or disability (LDD), and is based on the learner\'s own assessment of their health. Only learners who have an LDD which impacts on their ability to learn and/or use facilities of a kind generally supplied by the learning provider are classed as having an LDD. Any learners identifying as having an LDD without specifying the type are counted as having an LDD in this report.[Filtered]

[Collapse]ProviderThis dimension gives the provider with whom the learner is studying. Data for further education (FE) institutions includes work-based learning provision on a consortium member basis and local authority community learning (LACL) where there is a formal enrolment with the FE institution. The remainder of the providers are split between LACL and WBL providers, with the latter being grouped together as other training providers.[Filtered]

Learner numbers in this report can be broken down by mode of study and domicile area.

General description

This table provides the number of post-16 learners (excluding those enrolled at higher education institutions and school sixth forms) attending institutions in Wales.

Learner counts are based on providers' own learner identifiers and therefore the total learners across all providers will include some multiple-counting between providers.

All figures are rounded to the nearest multiple of 5. Any values greater than 0 and less than 5 have been suppressed and replaced with an asterisk (*)


Data collection and calculation

From 2016/17 onwards all data in the table is calculated using the month 5 freeze of the Lifelong Learning Wales Record (LLWR). This freeze is produced close to the end of the December after the academic year in question finishes. For example, the freeze containing the 2016/17 data was taken close to the end of December 2017.
Prior to 2016/17 data in the table was calculated using the month 7 freeze of the Lifelong Learning Wales Record (LLWR). This freeze was produced close to the end of the February after the academic year in question finishes. For example, the freeze containing the 2015/16 data was taken close to the end of February 2017.

Data reference periods

Data in the table is presented on an academic year basis, which runs from 1st August - 31st July.

Users, uses and context

The data in this table are used both within and outside the Welsh Government to monitor educational trends and as a baseline for further analysis of the underlying data. Some of the key users are:

Ministers and the Members Research Service in the National Assembly for Wales
Officials in the Welsh Government
Other government departments
Further Education Institutions, Work-Based Learning providers and local authorities
Estyn, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Education and Training in Wales
Students, researchers, and academics
Individual citizens, private companies, and the media

These statistics are used in a variety of ways. Some examples of these are:

General background and research
Inclusion in reports and briefings
Advice to Ministers
Informing and evaluating the education policy-making process in Wales

LLWR data are used to underpin funding and performance reports for learning providers, to calculate NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) figures and in student finance modelling.

Rounding applied

All figures in the table have been rounded to the closest multiple of 5. All non-zero values less than 5 have been suppressed and are denoted by an asterisk (*).

Statistical quality

Statisticians within the Welsh Government review the data and query any anomalies with the LLWR data collection team and, where relevant, with learning providers before tables are published.

The LLWR data underlying this table are intended to be final, for non-funding purposes.
