  1. Employers had until 20 May 2022 to apply for incentive payments for apprentices hired as a new employee between 01 October 2021 and 31 January 2022.
  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. Months in the table reflect the planned apprenticeship start date and not the employment start date. The planned apprenticeship start date may be after the employment start date.
  4. Incentive claims shown here include only those that are active in the system at the point of reporting. Some incentive claims may subsequently be withdrawn after an application is submitted, for instance by the employer, and these are not included in the totals here.
