In 2009-10, the latest year for which final data are available, less than 1 per cent of adults aged 24 and over who completed a level 3 or level 4 course (full-time or part-time) in government funded further education (learner responsive) took longer than three years to complete it and the proportion taking longer than four or five years is even smaller.

Information on further education and skills participation, enrolments and achievements is published in a quarterly Statistical First Release (SFR). The latest SFR was published on 27 October 2011: http://www.thedataservice.org.uk/statistics/statisticalfirstrelease/sfr_current.
