Further Education, Work-based Learning and Community Learning in Wales Statistics 2004/05
In 2003/04 a new data collection system known as the Lifelong Learning Wales Record (LLWR) was introduced with the aim of collecting consistent and comparable data across the post-16 learning sector. In its first year of operation, the LLWR collected data from Further Education and Community Learning providers. Work-based Learning providers were included from 2004/05.
The statistics in this volume complement the Welsh Assembly Government’s Statistical First Release SDR 36/2006 on the 2004/05 post-16 learning sector and summary data available via the StatsWales website. Data were extracted from the LLWR-sourced post-16 database on 2 February 2006.
Key results for 2004/05 are:
Further Education institutions
- 239,020 learners were enrolled at twenty five FE institutions during the 2004/05 academic year.
- 10,685 were pursuing work-based learning programmes.
- The characteristics of students in Welsh further education institutions were:
- 34 per cent under the age of twenty five;
- 96 per cent primarily domiciled in Wales; 24 per cent of these were domiciled in areas designated as deprived;
- 4 per cent of a non-white ethnic origin;
- 8 per cent with a disability.
LEA Community learning
- There were 56,555 learners undertaking LEA Community Learning activities in 2004/05, including 40 per cent enrolled with LEAs and 60 per cent enrolled at FE institutions but taught by LEA staff.
- 9.5 per cent of learners were under the age of twenty five and 27 per cent were aged 60 and over.
- 58,620 distinct learners pursued work-based learning (WBL) with providers (including FE institutions) receiving funding from ELWa in 2004/05.
- The number of distinct learners on WBL programmes has increased by 27 per cent between March 2000 and March 2005.
- 66 per cent of WBL learners were under the age of twenty five on 31 August 2004; 2 per cent were of a non-white ethnic origin and 5 per cent had a disability.
The numbers of learners in Further Education, Community Learning and Work-based learning should not be summed together owing to overlaps in definitions of cohorts.
