Abstract

"London Economics were commissioned by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills to undertake an assessment of the long-term effect of vocational education and training on labour market outcomes. We combined learner attainment information from the Individual Learner Record (ILR) between 2002/03 and 2005/06, annual earnings information (between 2003/04 and 2009/10) and employment information (between 1999/00 and 2009/10) from HM Revenue and Customs, and benefit receipt and duration information (between 1999/00 and 2009/10) from the Department for Work and Pensions. The number of individuals contained in the ILR totalled almost 6.9 million learners that could be subsequently matched to the HMRC and DWP data sources (presented in Figure 1). For the analysis we retained both achievers and individuals who enrolled in the course but failed to achieve the qualification aim." - page 8.
