Learning Network Analysis, 2007/08
The Learning Network Analysis bulletin provides data about post-16 learners (excluding learners at higher education institutions) in Wales at both a national and regional level. It is intended as a source of information to support national and local strategic planning and policy making within the post-16 education and training sector.
The information within this bulletin relates to Welsh-domiciled learners enrolled during the 2007/08 academic year at further education (FE) institutions, other training providers, Local Education Authority community learning providers and school sixth forms in Wales. The analysis also includes Welsh domiciled learners enrolled at further education institutions and other training providers located in England.
The data has been sourced from the Lifelong Learning Wales Record (LLWR), Post-16 Pupil Level Annual Schools Census (PLASC) and the Individualised Learner Record (ILR).
The key points from the bulletin are:
- The total number of Welsh domiciled learners was 7.1 per cent lower in 2007/08 than in 2006/07. Allowing for the change in data collection process for ‘Welsh for Adults’ FE learners the estimated net fall in numbers between 2006/07 and 2007/08 was 5.2 per cent.
- In 2007/08 there were 331,405 learners domiciled in Wales and pursuing learning at a further education (FE) institution, other training provider, local education authority community learning provider, school sixth form or provider located in England.
- 66 per cent of learners were enrolled at FE institutions (including their training subsidiaries), 14 per cent were enrolled at other training providers, 7 per cent were enrolled at local education authority community learning providers, 9 per cent were enrolled at school sixth forms and 4 per cent were enrolled at English providers.
- The geographical areas adopted by the Department for Children, Education, Lifelong Learning and Skills (DCELLS) provide the basis for regional analysis. Approximately 26.7 per cent of Welsh domiciled learners reside in the North Wales region, 28.3 per cent in South West/Mid Wales, 22.6 per cent in South Wales and 22.4 per cent in South East Wales.
