Full Time Learners Aged 16-18 Years – Diversity (2021-22 Year-End)
Impact on Diversity and Inclusion
Learning difficulty or disability
For learners aged 16-18, there were more male learners in 2021/22 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 that the local population. 32.1% of our learner are from minority groups who make up 11.9% of the local population. Learners of Asian ethnicity succeed at 5.6% above college average whilst black and mixed ethnicity learners achieved at 3.8% and 8.3% below the College average respectively. The College will put a process in place to investigate this further and take any required action.
1,072 (23.1%) of the 16-18 learners we support have a learning difficulty or disability. Learners with difficulties and disabilities achieve at a comparable rate to their peers.
