Data is from the England and Wales 2021 Census, Northern Ireland 2021 Census, and the Scotland 2011 Census (2022 Census data is yet to be released)
🎓 Education Escapades in the UK! Scotland, despite having a smaller population than most regions in England, had the highest percentage (23.08%) of the population where the highest qualification is less than 5 GCSEs back in 2011. This could reflect the different education system in Scotland, where GCSEs aren't the standard qualification.
🏞️ Northern Ireland Nods! With the smallest population among the regions, Northern Ireland boasts the lowest percentage (6.45%) of the population where the highest qualification is less than 5 GCSEs in 2021. It seems the Emerald Isle is setting a shining example in education!
🌇 London's Learning Ladder! With the largest population in the UK, London has a relatively low percentage (7.67%) of the population where the highest qualification is less than 5 GCSEs in 2021. This could be due to the abundance of educational opportunities in the capital.
📚 UK's Education Expedition! It's fascinating to see the diversity in educational attainment across the UK. From Scotland's unique educational system to Northern Ireland's impressive low percentage of people with less than 5 GCSEs, and London's blend of a large population with a lower percentage in the same category. It's a reminder that despite geographical boundaries, the pursuit of education is universal and varied. Keep on learning, UK! 🇬🇧
