College Key Facts

Each year, we produce a College Key Facts leaflet, which provides a useful overview of the main facts and figures relating to colleges in England. It contains information on students numbers in education, on apprenticeships and higher education as well as statistics on curriculum and quality, diversity, staff and finance.
