28 February 2017: New Linking London report – Progression of college students in London to higher education 2011 - 2014
This is the third report the Linking London has commissioned from Hugh Joslin, Sharon Smith and Jill Jameson from the University of Greenwich and we would like to thank them for their hard work. Linking London has collaborated with University of Greenwich colleagues on the ESRC-funded HIVE-PED (HIgher Vocational Education and Pedagogy) research seminars project to develop and disseminate research findings on the progression of college students in London to higher education.
We would also like to thank our sponsors for funding this report: Birkbeck, University of London, Goldsmiths, University of London, King's College London and Kingston University London. We also want to thank the HEFCE National Networks for Collaborative Outreach (NNCO) project for supporting this important data work.
Combined with the two previous reports, we have nearly a decade’s worth of data to explore which give us a great insight in allowing us to see what is happening both to students in further education and their destinations.
Based on matching of ILR (Individualised Learner Record) datasets with HESA (Higher Education Statistics Agency), this report provides a detailed analysis of the progression of students from all the London Further Education and Sixth Form Colleges and analyses the results looking at demographic information including sex, age, ethnicity and domicile.
