Year 13 - Ethnicity


Ethnic minority groups made up 5.7% of the cohort (739 individuals).

However ethnic data and analysis might be slightly skewed by the fact that 6.8% of the Year 13 cohort did not supply information on ethnicity. In addition the non-response/left area proportion is higher for leavers from minority ethnic groups (2.8% for minority ethnic groups compared to 1.9% for white background groups).

Of those returning information on ethnicity:

  • The most popular choice of route across all minority ethnic groups was continuing in full time education at 87%. This compared to 78.9% for individuals from a white background. This difference of 8.1percentage points accounted for the largest difference between white background and minority ethnic groups across all routes
  • The least popular route across all minority ethnic groups was Work Based Training – Non Employed Status (0.1%). The least popular route for individuals from a white background was continuing in part-time education (less than 16 hours a week), with 0.2% of this cohort choosing this option (25 individuals)
  • A higher percentage of those with white backgrounds (6.6 percentage points difference) entered employment outside of Government sponsored training (12.6% of those from a white background compared to 6% of those from a minority ethnic background)
  • There was a difference of 1.2 percentage points between white background and ethnic minority groups entering work based training – employed status (1.9% and 0.7% respectively)
  • The proportion of young people from a white background who were NEET was higher than for those with a minority ethnic background (3.9% - 444 individuals and 2.8% - 21 individuals respectively)
