The Scottish average in 2015/16 was 91.4% with the rates in Inverclyde, West Dunbartonshire, Glasgow, North Lanarkshire and Renfrewshire all falling below this level.  86.5% of Glasgow school leavers entered a positive destination in 2015/16.


A 'positive' destination is one of the following: higher education, further education, employment, training, voluntary work or an activity agreement.

The original data set can be accessed here.

The data shown in relation to school leaver destinations has been taken from Skills Development Scotland data. The data has been split into the three Strategic Planning Areas of Glasgow based on the location of the schools that were attended rather than the addresses of pupils. This includes all pupils who attended Glasgow City Council schools and left school in the years shown. This includes pupils who have an address outside of the Glasgow City boundary but attended Glasgow secondary schools.
