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 94.9% of young people were engaged in Education, Employment or Training.  This was slightly higher than the national average (94.5%) and slightly lower than our statistical neighbour average (95%).  Central Bedfordshire ranked 74th across all authorities nationally and rose to the second quartile.
