Percentage of students in post-secondary non-tertiary education enrolled in general programmes, both sexes

Total number of students enrolled in general programmes at the post-secondary non-tertiary education level, expressed as a percentage of the total number of students enrolled in all programmes (vocational and general) at the post-secondary non-tertiary level. General education is designed to develop learners’ general knowledge, skills and competencies and literacy and numeracy skills, often to prepare students for more advanced educational programmes at the same or higher ISCED levels and to lay the foundation for lifelong learning. General educational programmes are typically school- or college-based. General education includes educational programmes that are designed to prepare students for entry into vocational education, but that do not prepare for employment in a particular occupation or trade or class of occupations or trades, nor lead directly to a labour market relevant qualification.
