Engagement and participation rates
Learner engagement trend analysis
Dudley Sixth has been successful in its drive to increase learner engagement with A level learning. The participation of A level learners has increased dramatically over recent years, expanding from 244 learners in 2011/12 to 484 in 2015/16, doubling the provision in that period. This growth is continuing with over 500 enrolments in 2016/17. This growth shows the increased confidence locally in Dudley Sixth as a provider of good quality A level provision and supports the continued financial health of the college.
This growth is set against a backdrop of a shrinking 16-18 population, both in the Dudley borough and the surrounding areas. There are a number of elements influencing this growth, but the largest factor is the creation of a dedicated centre for A level provision (Dudley Sixth).
Travel to Learn Map
The map shows the travel to learn pattern of our A level learners in 2015-16. The majority of learners are from the Dudley borough, as you would expect, with increasing numbers of learners looking to remain in Dudley to study rather than travel elsewhere. Our catchment area has extended slightly with an increase in recruitment from the schools in the west of the borough and on the border with Wolverhampton. We are pleased to be the first choice for many local A level learners and recognise the wider regional contribution we make to the lives of learners aged 16-18 years.
