Apprenticeship and levy statistics: February 2018

Apprenticeship and levy statistics: February 2018

Monthly apprenticeship starts

In November 2017 there were 27,000 apprenticeship starts, compared to 41,600 starts at this point in 2016/17. 

according to figures published by the government this morning, 40 percent fewer than in 2016.

These starts are based on returns up until the end of December 2017 and are presented for transparency purposes. Finalised figures for all months will be available in November 2018.


In Figure 2, first reported monthly apprenticeship starts are shown for 2017/18 along with the corresponding 2016/17 figures. For the first three months of each academic year(August to October) these ‘first reported data’ correspond to the fourth ILR data return made by providers to the Education and Skills Funding Agency, and is known as ‘R04’ data, whereas for November it corresponds to the fifth ILR data return known as ‘R05’.


Also shown for comparison are the finalised figures for the 2016/17 academic year; this shows the changes caused by data returned to the ESFA after the figures were first reported. The most up-to-date figures for the current 2017/18 academic year (based on the R05 return) are also presented.

Subsequent monthly starts will be first reported using the next ILR return, e.g. December starts will be first reported using the R06 return, January starts will use the R07 return and so on. Finalised data for each month will be published in November
