Official estimates of the number and proportion of 16 to 18-year-olds in full-time education and work based learning in England are published by the Department in a Statistical First Release (SFR) each June and can be found on the Department's website:

http://www.education.gov.uk/rsgateway/DB/SFR/s001011/index.shtml

These estimates do not include young people undertaking employer-funded training or employment. However, information on a wider range of activities can be extracted from the databases maintained by local authorities to record young people's participation in education, training and employment. Figures for young people aged (a) 16, (b) 17 and (c) 18 years in (i) York and (ii) Yorkshire and the Humber are shown in the following tables. These data were not collected at local authority level before 2005.
