The way this measure has been calculated has been changed by the Department for Education. Last year, the 3 months average was between November and January. This year, the 3 month average is calculated between December and February and so a direct comparison with the past year is not possible.

The 3 month average between December and February shows that 93.4% of young people were engaged in Education Employment or Training.  This was slightly lower than the national average (94%) but the same as our statistical neighbour average.  Central Bedfordshire ranked 107th across all authorities nationally and placed in the third quartile.

Bigger values are best
