The 2011 Early School Leavers survey was the fifth statewide survey of the destinations of students who left Queensland schools in Years 10, 11 or early in Year 12. The survey results show the initial study and work destinations of young people after leaving school during 2010.
The Early School Leavers survey included early school leavers from non-government schools for the first time in 2011. The inclusion of these early school leavers and the changed methodology for constructing the survey frame has resulted in a break in the series of Early School Leavers surveys.
The survey was conducted in three stages; December 2010, March 2011 and June 2011 and achieved a response rate of 48.6 per cent.
Summary results of the 2011 Early School Leavers survey show:
Detailed results of the 2011 Early School Leavers survey are available in a comprehensive statewide report 2.2M.
Thank you to the young people who took part in the 2011 Early School Leavers survey and contributed to its success.
