Full Time Learners Aged 16-18 Years – Enrolments (Updated In-Year)

Enrolment on full time programmes continues to be strong across the College, although this has seen a slight drop from the previous year. The numbers have continued to grow in the academic year as we offer the opportunity for young people to join the College from January if their situation has changed. The quality of provision, high levels of learner satisfaction and the ongoing development of the Dudley and Brierley Hill Learning Quarters are factors in our continued high levels of recruitment.

Following significant increase in overall 16-18 learner numbers in 2019/20 and a further rise in 20/21, we have seen a slight decrease in 21/22 with 4755 young people in learning. This is in line with learner numbers for 19/20.

Continued high numbers of 16-18 learners confirms high levels of confidence in Dudley College of Technology and will continue to support the regional economy as well as our own financial health.
