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 Jan 2020-Dec 2020 (the latest available data): 

  • 9.7 per cent of North East LEP area residents aged 16-64 had received job-related training in the previous four weeks
  • 17.6 per cent had received such training in the most recent quarter (13 weeks)
  • these proportions were both slightly smaller than the equivalents for England and England excluding London
  • they were, respectively, the fourth lowest and fourth highest percentages among the eight core city LEPs

Because of different rates of employment it is useful to focus on the percentages of working people who had received job-related training. In Jan 2020-Dec 2020:

  • 13.5 per cent of workers aged 16-64 in the North East LEP area had received job-related training in the previous four weeks
  • 24.4 per cent had received job-related training in the previous 13 weeks
  • both percentages were slightly higher than the England and England excluding London equivalents
  • again, these percentages were, respectively, the fourth lowest and fourth highest percentages among core city LEPs

Within North East local authorities, the percentage of workers aged 16 to 64 receiving job-related training was highest in Newcastle upon Tyne and lowest in South Tyneside (using the four week measure) and Gateshead (using the 13 week measure). Among constituencies, the percentages were highest in Bishop Auckland and Wansbeck and lowest in Easington. These statistics are based on location of residence rather than workplace and cover a twelve-month period, a quarter of which was before the economy was affected by Covid-19.
