  1. 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.
  2. Participation is the count of learners that participated at any point during the stated academic period. Learners undertaking more than one course will appear only once in the grand total.
  3. Participation at intermediate, advanced and higher levels is a count of learners that participated at those levels at any point during the year. Learners undertaking more than one course will only appear once at each level but can appear in the count at more than one level.
  4. Age for apprenticeship participation is based on age as at 31 August of the academic year.
  5. Indices of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) quintiles from 2014/15 to 2018/19 are based on the 2015 IMD rank of the learner's home postcode. IMD quintiles from 2019/20 onwards are based on the 2019 IMD rank of the learner's home postcode.
  6. Unknown Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) Quintile refers to a learner with a postcode that does not match to lower super output area.
