Click graph to expand

Over the last 8 years of reporting (2008/09 to 2015/16), the proportion of school leavers from Glasgow’s publicly funded secondary schools entering Higher and Further education has been between 55% and 58%. The proportion of school leavers going onto employment increased over the same period from 17.2% to 26.7%.


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.
