FULL-TIME PRIMARY / SECONDARY LEVEL STUDENT

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
All students enrolled in primary and secondary level educational programmes should be considered full-time when head-count data are reported, if they attend school for at least 75 per cent of the school day or week (as locally defined) and if they would normally be expected to be in the programme for the entire academic year. Otherwise, they should be considered part-time.

When determining full-time / part-time status, the work- based component in combined school- and work-based programmes should be included.
