Archived School Leaver Destinations

A new approach to the publication of school leaver destination statistics has been developed by Scottish Government in partnership with Skills Development Scotland (SDS).

It is the Scottish Government who publish school leaver destination statistics.

SDS no longer publish school leaver destination statistics but instead focus on the publication of the annual Participation Measure every August; reporting and providing more detailed analysis on a much wider group of young people (all 16-19 year olds).

SDS will carry on supplying school leaver destination data to Scottish Government every December and May drawn from the shared dataset. We will also continue to share individual data with local authorities and colleges through the 16+ Data Hub reports.

SDS provide the recently introduced ‘Making Skills Work’ publications on a bi-annual basis (December and June). These offer information to partners on a wider and more comprehensive range of SDS activity in each local authority area and replaced the local authority CPP reports that focused only on school leaver destination statistics.
