  1. Total 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.
  2. Volumes are rounded to the nearest 100. If shown, '~' indicates a base value of between 1 and 49, whilst 0 indicates a true zero.
  3. From 2013/14 to 2015/16 loans were available for learners ages 24 or older studying full Level 3 and Level 4 qualifications. From 2016/17, advanced learner loans were extended to learners aged 19 or older on the first day of their course and studying at Levels 3 to 6, and are not directly comparable to earlier years.
