Full Time Learners Aged 16-18 Years – Diversity (2020-21 Year-End)
Impact on Diversity and Inclusion
Learning difficulty or disability
For learners aged 16-18, there were more male learners in 2020/21 than female, however both groups achieved at very similar rates. We continue to support a diverse cohort of learners with the 16-18 ethnicity profile showing our learners as a group are more diverse than the local population. 29.2% of our learners are from minority groups who make up 11.9% of the local population. There are no significant differences in the achievement rates of learners from different ethnic groups.
1,275 (27.4%) of the 16-18 learners we support have a learning difficulty or disability. Students with learning difficulties and disabilities achieve at a comparable rate to their peers.
