For each year from 2007 to 2016 we take all new trainees in the ITO's we follow. From these trainees, we track their primary activity each year prior to starting training within the period of 2007 to 2016. We rank activities in order of:
- ITO training
- Tertiary study
- Polytechnic study
- Secondary schooling
- Employer (Workforce)
- Employee (Workforce)
For this analysis we only report the primary activity in the year prior to starting training. Training is derived from Ministry of Education records checking whether the year prior was within their defined start and end dates. ITO training areas are defined through the qualification details provided by the Ministry of Education.
