Data from the two sources (HESA and SLC) are not directly comparable because certain students and courses (for example postgraduate courses) included in table 1 do not attract student support. Additionally, table 2 provides those who have taken out loans, but does not include those who may have received student support in the form of a grant such as students from lower income families or those who study part-time courses.

Michael Gove: To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills what methodology his Department used to determine the number of people not in education, employment or training expected to start courses in January as part of the January Guarantee. 
We are determined to ensure that every 16 and 17-year-old who is not in education, employment or training (NEET) is given an opportunity to engage in learning so that they can develop the skills they will need for the upturn. The January Guarantee will ensure that all 16 and 17-year-olds who are NEET in January 2010 have the offer of an entry to employment place.
Information provided by Connexions services shows that there were around 60,000 16 and 17-year-olds NEET in January 2009. Many of these young people will already have a job or a place in learning to start in January, while there are others whose personal circumstances will prevent a return to learning at this time.
