  1. Age for achievements is based on age at the start of the programme, not the age at which they achieved.
  2. Age for apprenticeship participation is based on age as at 31 August of the academic year.
  3. Age for starts is based on age at the start of the programme.
  4. Figures for 2023/24 are provisional and cover the first two quarters (Aug 2023 to Jan 2024). All other years are final, full-year figures.
  5. Participation is the count of learners that participated at any point during the year. Learners undertaking more than one course will appear only once in the grand total.
  6. Total achievements are the count of Apprenticeships achieved at any point during the stated academic period. Learners achieving more than one Apprenticeship will appear more than once.
  7. Total starts are the count of apprenticeships started at any point during the stated academic period. Learners starting more than one Apprenticeship will appear more than once.
  8. Population data has been extracted from <a href=";version=0&amp;dataset=2002">Nomis - Official Census and Labour Market Statistics</a>. Population estimates for all years have been rebased to align with the Census 2021 results. Previously published rates per 100,000 have been updated in line with these new estimates. A few local authority districts have missing data, where this is the case the previous estimates have been used.
