General description

Having met the target for the previous Senedd term, the Welsh Government now has a new target to create 125,000 all-age apprenticeships. This is assessed using a more rigorous measure which takes account of early drop outs (within first 8 weeks) and transfers between apprenticeship records.

This table provides quarterly data on the number of apprenticeship learning programmes started in work-based learning (WBL) in Wales. The data includes WBL that is delivered by further education institutions and also WBL delivered by other training providers. Although the target now includes degree apprenticeships, these figures are not included here. Further information on this is provided in the 'current target' tab of the dashboard. This data is sourced from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

2023/24 Q1 data is calculated using the month 8 freeze of the Lifelong Learning Wales record (LLWR). This freeze was produced on the 21 March 2024.

From 2016/17 onwards all data in the table is calculated using the month 5 freeze of the Lifelong Learning Wales Record (LLWR). This freeze is produced close to the end of the December after the academic year in question finishes. For example, the freeze containing the 2016/17 data was taken close to the end of December 2017.

Prior to 2016/17 data in the table was calculated using the month 7 freeze of the Lifelong Learning Wales Record (LLWR). This freeze was produced close to the end of the February after the academic year in question finishes. For example, the freeze containing the 2015/16 data was taken close to the end of February 2017.

Data in the table is presented on an academic year basis, which runs from 1st August - 31st July.

All figures are rounded to the nearest multiple of 5. Any values greater than 0 and less than 5 have been suppressed and replaced with an asterisk (*).


Rounding applied

Statistical quality

Statisticians within the Welsh Government review the data and query any anomalies with the LLWR data collection team and, where relevant, with learning providers before tables are published.
