This volume is the tenth in a series providing statistics about the post-16 learning sector (excluding sixth forms and excluding Higher Education institutions apart from in a few specific tables). The main purpose of the publication series is to provide an annual picture of learning which was undertaken in the post-16 learning sector.
The statistics in this volume complement previously issued statistical reports on the 2012/13 post-16 learning sector and summary data available via the StatsWales website (Further Education and work-based learning) but include information not available from those sources.

- There was a 29 per cent decrease in FE learner numbers in total at Further and Higher Education institutions between December 2006 and December 2012.
- 91 per cent of learning activities at FEIs were completed and 93 per cent of the completed activities with an assessable outcome were attained.
- 31,475 learners pursued a Local Authority Community Learning activity in 2012/13 (including those enrolled at FEIs but taught by local authority staff), 12 per cent fewer than in the previous year.
