The latest 2020/21 participation data for East Sussex: May 2021 Participation Dashboard
Increasing the number of young people participating in education, training or employment with training is a key priority for East Sussex County Council and its partners.

- providing a broader range of learning opportunities
- supporting transition and removing barriers
Annual Participation Targets for 2019/20 are taken from March data and were achieved in March 2020
