Further education outcomes

Data guidance

Published

Description

The FE outcome-based success measures present statistics on the employment, earnings and learning outcomes of FE learners. This publication covers learners that achieved apprenticeships, adult (19+) FE and Skills learners and completers of traineeships in 2017/18, and tracks their outcomes in the following academic year, 2018/19.

The data uses the longitudinal education outcomes (LEO) study, which looks at how learners move through education and into the labour market by bringing together:

  • schools, further and higher education information from the Department for Education (DfE)
  • employment information from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC)
  • benefit histories from the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP)

Coverage

This publication reports on the employment and learning destinations of ESFA funded further education learners from 2013/14 to 2017/18. Included in this cohort are:

  • All apprenticeship learners
  • All traineeship learners
  • Adult (aged 19+) further education and skills learners
  • Community learners (reported on separately)

File formats and conventions

The underlying data files are provided in comma separated value (csv) format.

Whole numbers are rounded to the nearest 10, percentages are provided to the nearest whole number. Figures have been suppressed with the value ‘c’ for numbers lower than 6, and percentages where the numerator is less than 3 or the denominator is less than 6.
