The annual survey of school leavers undertaken by Careers Wales on behalf of the Welsh Assembly Government provides a useful snapshot of pupil destinations, which informs careers staff in their work with clients, parents, teachers and employers. The data collected also proves an invaluable aid to partners and colleagues involved in planning learning, training and employment opportunities.
The survey reports the destinations of 67,317 pupils from secondary schools across Wales. It includes pupils who have reached statutory leaving age and pupils leaving school in Years 12 and 13. Pupils from special schools are included in the survey, those attending FE colleges and independent schools are not. The destination information is recorded as a result of the pupil’s known activity on 31 October 2010.
This survey is compiled from data supplied by the six Careers Wales Companies. The survey tracks trends and destinations over a five year period and looks at the routes chosen by young people according to their ethnicity and gender.
In some instances percentages may have been rounded up or down and may not always total 100.
National figures may mask variances at careers company, local authority and institution level across all cohorts.
