  • sex and sexual orientation
  • age
  • marriage and civil partnership
  • gender reassignment

This assessment applies to the apprenticeships funding policy introduced in May 2017 and minor changes made to it in 2018. Read the apprenticeships funding policy paper if you would like more information.
