Students: Coastal Areas

Volume 488: debated on Wednesday 25 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills what proportion of people in each ward in each of the principal seaside towns of England were participating in (a) higher and (b) further education in each of the last three years. (257333)

Information on participation in further or higher education is not available at ward level.

Table 1 shows enrolments in Higher Education for each local authority, for 2005/06 to 2007/08. Table 2 shows FE and Skills participation for each local authority, for 2005/06 to 2007/08, the latest year for which we have fully audited information. Information on FE and Skills participation is also available on the Data Service website, and was released alongside the post-16 education statistical first release, which was published on 18 December 2008:

www.thedataservice.org.uk/statistics

A copy of these tables has been provided and the relevant data will be placed in the Library.

Information is not available on the proportion of people in each local authority in further or higher education.

Notes:

1. Volumes are rounded to the nearest hundred.

2. These figures include FE, University for Industry, WBL (including apprenticeships, Entry to Employment), Train to Gain and Adult Safeguarded Learning.

3. Final 2007/08 data will be published in March 2009.

4. This table uses learner volumes as a measure for comparative purposes. Full-year numbers are a count of the number of learners that participated at any point during the year.

5. Learners that are included in different data collections e.g. a learner undertaking an apprenticeship and a Train to Gain qualification, will be counted twice in this table.

6. Local authority is based on the home postcode of the learner, for learners participating in England.
