  1. Volumes are rounded to the nearest 100 and '~' indicates a base value of fewer than 50
  2. Age for starts is based on age at the start of the programme
  3. Age, gender, learners with learning difficulties and/or disabilities and ethnicity are based upon self-declaration by the learner
  4. There are a small number of starts on frameworks that have been reported in 2020/21. All remaining apprenticeship frameworks were withdrawn to new learners on 31 July 2020. Learners who started on frameworks are where it has been agreed a learner can return to a previous framework they have been on after an extensive break
  5. A minor amendment to how we count ‘starts supported by Apprenticeship Service Account (ASA) levy funds’ has been applied from 2020/21, please see the ‘About these statistics’ section
