Notes

1) Figures for 2011/12 onwards are not directly comparable to earlier years due to a change in data collection since the introduction of the Single Individualised Learner Record (ILR) data collection system.

2) Academic year runs from August to July.

3) This table contains further education data which includes Apprenticeships, Workplace Learning, Community Learning, and Education and Training provision (including the Offenders’ Learning and Skills Service) taken at General Further Education Colleges (including Tertiary), Sixth Form Colleges, Special Colleges (Agricultural and Horticultural Colleges, and Art and Design Colleges), Specialist Colleges and External Institutions.

4) Figures are based on learners that were funded through the government.

5) England totals have been rounded to the nearest 100, other figures have been rounded to the nearest 10.

6) The data source is the ILR.

7) Region and local authority are based upon the home postcode of the learner. England total includes learners in England but with home postcodes unknown or outside England.

8) This data is published in the further education data library:
