In England, 3,163,200 adult learners (aged 19 or over) participated in Further Education and Skills during the 2010/11 academic year (the most recent year for which full data is available).

In Swindon, 12,750 adult learners participated in Further Education and Skills during the 2010/11 academic year. This figure is based on the home postcode of the learner.

These figures are derived from the Individualised Learner Record (ILR). The figures are rounded to the nearest 10.

Further information relating to participation in Further Education and Skills broken down by geography is published in the Supplementary Tables of the Department's Post-16 Education Statistical First Release (SFR). These can be found at the following link:
