Statistics: further education and skills

Further education and skills data reported for January 2014 to present.

Statistics covering participation, learner outcomes and highest qualification held in the further education (FE) and skills sector.

This is a Department for Education (DfE) statistical first release (SFR). It is a National Statistics publication which complies with the code of practice for official statistics.

Additional breakdowns of this data are available at the FE data library and at further education and skills official statistics.

Changes to further education and skills statistics

DfE produces a wide range of official statistics on further education and skills, and we want to ensure they continue to remain relevant and fulfil a broad range of user needs.

We have reviewed the content, structure and periodicity of data available for this release. Please see the annex document, released with the November SFR, that sets out the changes we will make from January 2018.

Apprenticeship service statistics

Changes to the way apprenticeship funding works were introduced and implemented from May 2017. Guidance about these changes and paying the apprenticeship levy can be found here.

Experimental statistics on the use of the apprenticeship service will be published on a monthly basis but content and timing may be adjusted as feedback is assessed. We will take into account what data is reported in this new system and how this is happening.

These have now moved here.
