  1. Age for starts is based on age at the start of the programme.
  2. Volumes are rounded to the nearest 100 and 'low' indicates a base value of fewer than 50. Where data shows 'x' this indicates data is unavailable, 'z' indicates data is not applicable, and 'c' indicates data is suppressed.
  3. There are a small number of starts on frameworks that have been reported in 2021/22. All remaining apprenticeship frameworks were withdrawn to new learners on 31 July 2020.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.
  4. A minor amendment to how we count ‘starts supported by Apprenticeship Service Account (ASA) levy funds’ was applied for 2019/20. A further minor amendment was applied from 2020/21, please see the 'Methodology changes' section of the 'Further education and skills statistics: methodology' document for more information.
