£7bn 363 colleges 4.2m learners 263,257 staff

Fewer young people until 2019

I have been looking at the decline in numbers of young people at national and regional level, and the first data which popped up when I googled for local authority numbers was for Gloucestershire.
When I take the pupil numbers, and roll them forward to 2019, Gloucestershire mirrors the steady decline seen at national and regional level.

My projection for Young People in Gloucestershire 2009 to 2019. Source data and graph also from File Box in side bar

By 2014, there will be 10% fewer 15 year olds to feed into further education colleges at 16, and the numbers keep going down to an 18% drop by 2018.
This is a challenge which is every bit as real as the coming funding challenge.
