Notes:

  1. Data source: Single Individualised Learner Record.
  2. Within the Individualised Learner Record, providers can record the start date, planned end date, and actual end date for each apprenticeship record.
  3. Actual end date is only recorded for learners who have reached the end of their programme, or those who have withdrawn early.
  4. This calculation only includes those learners who have completed their programme in 2016/17.
  5. Some learners can complete their programme in a shorter time due to prior learning.
  6. Some learners take longer than expected due to planned breaks in learning.
  7. A small number of learners from the Employer Outcome Pilot are not included in this calculation
