Abstract

• The figures in this release show a decline in overall learner numbers between 2010/11 and 2011/12 (continuing since 2005/06) but with variations between the individual sectors and age groups. • In 2011/12 there were 226,575 distinct learners at FE Institutions, Community Learning (CL) or Work-based Learning (WBL) providers, 5.7 per cent lower than in 2010/11. • Total numbers at FE institutions fell by 4.4 per cent, with full-time learner numbers almost unchanged (0.2 per cent fall) and part-time learner numbers at FEIs 5.2 per cent lower. • Learners in local authority community learning fell by 10 per cent, relative to 2010/11. • For WBL provision, learner numbers on a full year basis fell by 6.4 per cent though the number of trainees in learning on the last day of the year was 6.2 per cent higher than at 31 July 2011 (partly because of day of week effects), the latter date having immediately preceded a change in the structure of Welsh Government support to WBL providers.
