Qualifications gained (England and Wales) 2011

Dataset population: Persons aged 16 and over

Qualifications gained

The qualifications classification counts all of the academic or vocational/professional qualifications that a person has obtained, for example A levels, diploma, apprenticeship, nursing or accountancy qualifications. People were asked to tick all of the categories applicable to their qualifications. People were also asked if they held foreign qualifications and to indicate the closest equivalent qualifications from the other categories listed. People who did this are counted in both the 'foreign qualifications' category and any other applicable category equivalent to their foreign qualifications.
