How to access the data
The complete AEB postcode dataset is too large for you to open conventionally in spreadsheet software. You can load this file into a database or BI software to query the whole dataset.
To allow you to view the data in a spreadsheet, we have split the complete AEB postcode dataset into three spreadsheet readable csv files.
- Devolved AEB postcode dataset.csv
This file contains all postcodes that fall within devolved authority areas
- ESFA funded A-K and non-funded AEB postcode dataset.csv
This file contains all non-devolved postcodes that begin with the letters A to K, and all non-funded British postcodes (Welsh and Scottish postcodes)
- ESFA funded L-Z AEB postcode dataset.csv
This file contains all non-devolved postcodes that begin with the letters L to Z.
What is this data for?
We use this data in the funding system to support publicly funded education and skills in England; covering the adult education budget, both in devolved and non-devolved areas.
The guidance document accompanying the data file explains how we use this data and what you can do with it to aid your enrolment of learners, and creation of ILR data.
