Key Education and Skills Data
A round-up of the latest trends:
- 29% of graduates are now earning less per hour than the average worker who has completed an apprenticeship, according to ONS figures published following a Freedom of Information request from Frank Field, Chair of the Commons Work and Pensions Committee.
- The Department for Education has released data showing that the proportion of people leaving college without a long-term place in education or employment has dropped to 4%
- Cambridge dropped out of the top three universities for the first time in the rankings’ 12 year history. Other UK universities have seen a drop in world rankings, which has been blamed on uncertainty over research funding and immigration rules following Brexit.
- The National Audit Office published a report calling for the Government’s plans for 3 million new apprenticeship places by 2020 to be tailored to meet the existing skills gaps, rather than concentrating on creating high volumes of apprenticeships.
