These data have been obtained by matching together datasets of school, further education and work-based learning awards to gain a complete picture of attainment. This analysis was published for the first time in May 2009, with data through to the year 2006/07. This replaces that earlier analysis, providing two more recent years of data, but also provides new data for earlier years. The statistics are still regarded as experimental, and we welcome any feedback on the approach.

Further information on data sources, methodology, definitions and the quality of these statistics can be found in the notes of the statistical release.
