FE data library

Data and information on learners, learning programmes and learner achievement from across the further education sector.

The further education (FE) data library offers data and information on learners, learning programmes and learner achievement.

These tables are a further cascade of the further education and skills statistics collection.

Please refer to the main collection for further education publications such as:

  • further education and skills releases

  • apprenticeship and traineeship releases

  • apprenticeship and levy statistics

There are tables and reports included in the FE data library that cover areas of interest not represented in the main statistics publication.
