Updated Monthly Participation Snapshot published
SDS has today published an update to the Monthly Participation Snapshot.
The snapshot provides a picture of the learning, training or work status of Scotland’s 16-19-year-olds.
This is the final release in this series. The report will not be published during the transition period between June and October. This is because school leavers are transitioning from school and full enrolment data from colleges and SAAS may not have been received. Publication will restart in November.
This management information helps SDS and other partners to ensure we are doing all that we can to support the future plans of young people across the country and enables Scottish Government to better understand the youth labour market.
The information is drawn from SDS’s CSS dataset which, with data feeds from statutory data sharing partners, is maintained as a shared dataset on behalf of Scottish Government. The dataset is the source of regular management information to data sharing partners on the education, training and employment status of 16-19-year-olds in Scotland via the 16+ Data Hub, and is the source of the Annual Participation Measure, a key indicator in the National Performance Framework.
The interactive report is produced using data collected by SDS and a range of partners, including local authorities, colleges, the Student Award Agency for Scotland, the Department for Work and Pensions and the Scottish Funding Council, which is shared through the 16+ Data Hub.
