Footnotes

  1. The list of courses approved for funding as part of the offer included 447 qualifications on 1 July 2022 (up from 387 on 1 April 2021). The number of qualifications has changed slightly from month-to-month, as some were removed, and others added. The latest reported figures for 2021/22 are based on the eligible courses that were valid for the offer in each month of the 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.
  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. 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.
  4. The 4,780 adults taking up free courses for jobs in 2020/21 relates to the original list of 387 eligible qualifications and covers the period April 21 to July 21 (when the offer was live). The total for enrolments by eligible adults covers the full academic year (August to July). Comparable enrolments for eligible adults during the April to July free courses for jobs period were 1,960 in 2018/19, 1,170 in 2019/20 and 6,560 in 2020/21.
