Some Interesting Education Statistics

In 2014 41% of working age adults (aged 19-64) in the UK had a qualification at NVQ Level 4 or above or equivalent qualification; 41% in England had a qualification at this level, 36% in Wales and 32% in Northern Ireland. In 2014 45% of working age adults in Scotland had a qualification at SCQF level 7 or better (Table 3.4).

Slightly more females (42%) have an NVQ Level 4 or above in the UK than males (39%).

In 2014 50% of 30-39 year olds had a qualification at NVQ Level 4 or above. This compares with 29% of 19-24 year olds and 35% of 50-64 year olds.

In January 2016, the Apprenticeship and English and Maths landscape looked like this.
