  1. Age for starts is based on age at the start of the programme
  2. Age, gender, learners with learning difficulties and/or disabilities and ethnicity are based upon self-declaration by the learner
  3. Length of Employment is based on the First Day of Learning with the current employer as recorded in the ILR
  4. Apprenticeship starts are rounded to the nearest 100
  5. Apprenticeships of less than 12 months include those where prior attainment is taken into account hence the required amount of training is reduced
  6. Expected duration is based on learning start date and planned end date as recorded on the ILR. Re-starting learners who may have returned from a planned break are excluded
