  1. Age is calculated based on age at the start of the programme
  2. 2019/20 apprenticeship starts supported by ASA levy funds are currently classed as provisional and an amended methodology has been applied to this year only. Therefore, 2019/20 figures are not directly comparable to previous years. See the ‘About these statistics’ section for more information
  3. Volumes are rounded to the nearest 100 and '~' indicates a base value of fewer than 50
  4. Age, gender, learners with learning difficulties and/or disabilities and ethnicity are based upon self-declaration by the learner
