Job-related training

Proportion of working residents receiving job-related training

The Annual Population Survey includes questions about whether a respondent had received job-related training in the previous 4 weeks or in the previous 13 weeks. In the twelve-month period Jul 20-Jun 21 (the latest available data): 

  • About 10.6% of North East LEP area residents aged 16-64 had received job-related training in the previous four weeks
  • Around 17.6% had received such training in the most recent quarter (13 weeks)
  • these proportions were both slightly lower than the equivalent for England excluding London
  • the first the fourth lowest percentage among the eight core city LEPs and the second was the fourth highest

Because of different rates of employment it is useful to focus on the percentages of working people who had received job-related training. In Jul 20-Jun 21:

  • About 14.9% of workers aged 16-64 in the North East LEP area had received job-related training in the previous four weeks
  • About 24.8% had received job-related training in the previous 13 weeks
  • both percentages were slightly higher than the England excluding London equivalents
  • these percentages were, respectively, the joint third and third highest among core city LEPs

Within North East local authorities, in both measures, the percentage of workers aged 16 to 64 receiving job-related training was highest in Newcastle upon Tyne. Among constituencies, the four-week percentage was highest in Newcastle upon Tyne East and the 13-week percentage was highest in Newcastle upon Tyne North. These statistics are based on location of residence rather than workplace and cover a twelve-month period when the economy was affected by Covid-19.
