    Footnotes

    1. Age, gender, learners with learning difficulties and/or disabilities and ethnicity are based upon self-declaration by the learner
    2. Volumes are rounded to the nearest 10 and '~' indicates a base value of fewer than 5 but greater than 0
    3. Ethnicity categories and BAME (black, Asian and minority ethnic groups) have been aligned with the ethnicities recorded in the 2011 UK Census
    4. A learner may record multiple LLDD categories but must indicate which of these is the primary disability, difficulty or health problem. Overall ‘Primary LLDD and health problem’ totals may not match the main LLDD figures
