The Further Education Data Hub brings together into a single website some of the most important and useful data about the further education sector and the communities that the sector serves. RCU and the AoC have designed the site to be as easy to use as possible and have included a range of new interactive charts and maps as well as links to other information resources from Ofsted, the Skills Funding Agency, UKCES, DfE, BIS and ONS.

The Data Hub will continue to develop over time in order to ensure that it includes the range of resources that managers, governors and planners within the sector find most useful and valuable. We very much welcome your suggestions about what you would like the site to contain.

All of the data on the main site is based on public data and is free to use. To access specific data about your college using the MiDES dataset you will require a user name and password. Please refer to the About MiDES page on how to obtain login details.
