Details

Statistics showing the percentage of students staying in education or going into employment or an apprenticeship for at least 2 terms in the 2016 to 2017 academic year, after finishing study in the 2015 to 2016 academic year at:

  • key stage 4 (after year 11, usually aged 16)
  • key stage 5 (after A levels or other level 3 qualifications, usually aged 18)

Sustained destinations include:

  • school sixth forms
  • further education and sixth-form colleges
  • higher education institutions (universities)
  • apprenticeships
  • employment

The way apprenticeships are counted has changed in this release.

The percentage of students who do not sustain an education, employment or apprenticeship destination during this year, and those with no activity captured in our data, are also shown.

The releases give breakdowns for specific student characteristics, including:

  • gender
  • ethnicity
  • disadvantaged status and free school meals eligibility
  • special educational needs (and learning difficulties and disabilities at key stage 5)
  • prior attainment

Additional experimental statistics using the destination measure methodology include:

  • destinations of 16- to 18-year-old students who entered technical certificates and other approved level 2 vocational qualifications, and for academic, applied general and tech level students
  • higher education and apprenticeship destinations at level 4 and above

In January 2019 we added the revised institutional level tables for both key stage 4 and key stage 5. We also added more time series data to the additional and underlying data file.
