There have been 8,300 apprenticeship starts since the 2010/11 academic year by women aged over 60 and born in the 1950s.

Please note data is based on administrative returns for academic years 2010/11 to 2016/17 and the data for 2016/17 is based on a provisional year number. This figure is rounded to the nearest hundred.

For further information, data on apprenticeship starts by age band and gender are available in the apprenticeship demographic tool:
