In May 2012, there were 1.1 million people aged 15–64 years who had completed the non-school qualification in which they were enrolled in 2011. These people were more likely to be employed in May 2012 than the rest of the population (82% compared with 75%). (Tables 10 and 16)

In 2012, 24% of school leavers were employed and not studying. 7% were unemployed and not studying, with a further 9% not in the labour force and not studying. (Table 19)
