These statistical publications have been produced by the Department in Northern Ireland (NI) using enrolment data from the providers of Essential Skills courses. They provide detail on the number of enrolments, characteristics of those enrolling and numbers qualifying in Essential Skills courses.

Please note for publications in 2012 from July onwards the methodology to calculate the number of individuals within each academic year has changed based on the consultation process undertaken in May 2012.

For further details on the outcome of consultation see the User Consultation Summary within the Essential Skills Enrolments Publications 2012 link.
