Details

Data from the Individualised Learner Record (ILR) and the Inter-Departmental Business Register (IDBR) have been matched. This allows information about apprentices to be linked to business information about their employers, covering:

  • learner characteristics: age and gender
  • apprenticeship information: level and subject studied
  • employer characteristics: industry sector, size, region and legal status

These experimental statistics relate to the five academic years between 2012 to 2013 and 2016 to 2017. This is the first publication of the 2015 to 2016 and 2016 to 2017 figures.

Information on apprenticeship starts and participation by type of industry between academic years 2010 to 2011 and 2014 to 2015 has previously been published as a research report.
