Information on the number of SEN students completing two years of post-16 education as part of their education, health and care (EHC) plan before accessing A-level provision, and who were still attending 6th form study over the age of 20, is not held by the department.

The department publishes information on young people with an EHC plan by age and attainment here: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/level-2-and-3-attainment-by-young-people-aged-19-in-2018.

Tables 7, 8 and 9 detail information on young people that had an EHC plan at age 15 that went on to attain Level 2, Level 2 with English and Maths and Level 3 by age 19. Tables 10 and 11 detail the same information by ages 16, 17 and 18.
