Year 12 - Trends


  • Full time education remains the most popular route across the five year period. There was a 1.6 percentage point increase in 2015 (92.2%) compared to the 2011 figure (90.6%)
  • In 2015, as in previous years, a higher percentage (2.5 percentage points) of females (93.4%) chose to continue in full time education compared to males (90.9%)
  • The proportion of males entering the labour market, either through work based training or employment, continues to be above that for females over the five year period
  • The percentage of those entering Work Based Training – Employment Status in 2015 (1%) increased slightly from 2014 (0.8%) however the percentage of those entering Work Based Training – Non Employed Status is down to its lowest level in five years at 1.2% (compared to its highest level at 2.7% in 2012)
  • In 2015, the percentage of the cohort known to be NEET (1.6%) has slightly decreased in comparison to 2014 (1.9%). Over the five year period leading to 2015, the percentage has decreased from 2.5% in 2011 to 1.6%: a reduction of 0.9 percentage points over the five year period. In numerical terms this represents a decrease from 411 individuals who were NEET in 2011 compared to 255 in 2015; a reduction of 156 individuals over the period
  • Consistently a greater proportion of males than females are known to have been NEET over the five year period to 2015, with males typically accounting for around 0.8 percentage points more in this category per annum than females. However, the larger reduction in the proportion of males NEET in 2015 (0.6 percentage points for males compared to 0.1 for females) means that in the five year period to 2015 there has been a greater proportionate reduction in the number of males known to be NEET compared with females (a reduction of 1.1 and 0.9 percentage points respectively)
  • The percentage of non-responses has remained static at 0.7%. This is the lowest level for the five year period and almost half the figure at the beginning of the period in 2011 (1.3%) and over 1 percentage point lower than the high point of 1.8% in 2013
  • The percentage recorded as leaving the area was the same at the beginning and end of the five year period (0.5%), with a peak of 0.8% (127 individuals) in 2012 and lows of 0.5% in 2011, 2014 & 2015
