  1. The levy-status of a commitment is based on the latest known status of the corresponding apprenticeship service account. This means that historical commitments may change their levy status if the apprenticeship service account was to subsequently change their status.
  2. Volumes are rounded to the nearest 10 and 'low' indicates a base value of fewer than 5. Where data shows 'x' this indicates data is unavailable, 'z' indicates data is not applicable, and 'c' indicates data is suppressed.
  3. Fully agreed commitments include commitments for which funding payments are complete, along with those that are actively being funded.
  4. From 01 April 2021, all non-levy paying organisations are using the apprenticeship service. Prior to this date some starts with non-levy employers were not funded through the apprenticeship service and so the data reported here only provides a partial picture.
  5. Commitments may be recorded on the Apprenticeship Service system after the training start date has passed and therefore data should be treated as highly provisional.
  6. On 9 January 2020 the Apprenticeship service was extended to all employers that do not pay the levy to register and reserve funds. Prior to January 2020 it was only possible for non-levy organisations to set up apprenticeship service accounts and have commitments in order to utilise levy transfers, whilst a limited number of non-levy organisations registered accounts as part of testing in preparation for the extension of the service to all employers.
