National Pupil Database

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families (1) how many and what proportion of people aged (a) 16, (b) 17 and (c) 18 were in (i) education, (ii) training, (iii) employment and (iv) none of the above in each year since 1995; (157821)

(2) how many and what proportion of 15-year-old secondary school leavers left school for (a) employment, (b) further education, (c) employer-funded training, (d) work based learning, (e) other education and training and (f) inactivity in each year since 1997.

The figures provided in this answer are for individuals at academic age 16, 17 and 181. Participation is broken down by: full-time education; work based learning (WBL); employer funded training (EFT); other education and training (OET); not in any education or training—in employment; not in any education, employment or training (NEET). There will also be those that are in a category, e.g. full-time education, and also in employment.

Information on destinations of school leavers does not exist in this form. The tables for 16-year-old participation show the activities of all young people in the year following the end of compulsory schooling.

These figures are available in the Statistical First Release published by the Department in SFR 22/2007, please see the following web link:

http://www.dfes.gov.uk/rsgateway/DB/SFR/s000734/8fr22_2007.pdf.

1 Academic age is the age of the individual measured at the beginning of the academic year, 31 August.

Definitions

WBL for young people comprises advanced apprenticeships, apprenticeships, entry to employment (E2E) and NVQ learning.

EFT covers employees who have received training in the past four weeks; these figures are restricted to training other than WBL. It will include non-WBL apprentices and others on long and short term training programmes, but exclude those who have previously received training in their current job, though not in the last four weeks. It covers only young people who are in employment.

OET covers young people who are studying but are not included in other categories. For example: those attending independent colleges or training centres; at any college in part-time study not reported as released from a job; or receiving training in part-time education but not currently employed.
