  1. A minor amendment to how we count ‘starts supported by Apprenticeship Service Account (ASA) levy funds’ was applied for 2019/20. A further minor amendment was applied from 2020/21, please see the 'Methodology changes' section of the 'Further education and skills statistics: methodology' document for more information.
  2. Age for achievements is based on age at the start of the programme, not the age at which they achieved.
  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 three quarters (Aug 2023 to Apr 2024). All other years are final, full-year figures.
