The Government have published research, conducted in 2017, which examines the amount of time that students spend on building their skills and employability in pre-16 and post-16 education.
The research covers:
- qualification hours (defined as the time that students spend in teaching and learning that counts towards their qualifications).
- non qualification hours (organised by educational institutions and include time spent on activities that can be broadly categorised as employability, enrichment and pastoral).
- homework and self-study
- activities outside of education
- a typical week
