Electrotechnology gateway ITO enrolments

To investigate the effect of completing gateway unit standards on school leavers’ choices further, we compare with school leavers who did not complete these standards. We then calculate the fraction among each group that goes into training with each ITO. In the chart below, we can see that gateway alumni are disproportionately likely to participate in Skills Organisation training, when compared to other trade ITOs.

We have filtered by gender since men are both more likely to choose trade ITOs, and more likely to take electrotechnology standards, and so a comparison using both genders would be misleading.

Methodology

School leaver data is sourced from Ministry of Education data in the IDI. Foreign fee-paying students and exchange students have been excluded. The first ITO that a school leaver enrols with after leaving is used for classification. Both school leaver and ITO data are for the years 2009 to 2016 inclusive.
