Footnotes

  1. 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.
  2. Eligible adults under the original offer are identified as a) those without prior attainment at Full level 3 or above; and b) those not enrolled on the course as part of an apprenticeship; and c) all those aged 24 and above or those aged 19-23 where there is not already a statutory entitlement to the course through the adult education budget. It includes learners who don’t receive the direct funding, yet enrolled and meet the underlying criteria.
  3. In April 2021 there were 387 qualifications approved for funding on the offer, although this figure is subject to change over time as qualifications are added and removed from the list. In July 2023, there were 418 qualifications approved. From 2021/22, figures are based on the eligible courses that were valid for the offer at the beginning of each month of the relevant academic year. Comparisons with months in previous years are based on the same qualifications. Figures up to 2020/21 are also presented based on the original 387 qualifications that were valid at the introduction of the offer.
  4. The full-year final total of 4,780 adults taking up free courses for jobs in 2020/21 covers the period April to July (when the offer was live). The total for enrolments by eligible adults covers the full academic year (August to July). Month-by-month breakdowns are available to view by clicking ‘Explore Data’ under this table.
