The index ranks each small area (LSOA) from 1 to 1909, with 1 being the most deprived area and 1909 being the least deprived. This table has grouped the WIMD 2014 ranks into 10 equal decile groups where 1 is the most deprived group and 10 is the least deprived group. <br />In earlier versions of this table, deprivation data for 2018/19 and 2019/20 was incorrectly based on the income domain of the Welsh Index of Multiple Deprivation (WIMD) and not the main index as described. This has now been revised so that they are based on the main index. <br />                <br />                [Filtered]

http://gov.wales/statistics-and-research/further-education-work-based-learning-community-learning-statistics/ - Further education, work-based learning and community learning statistics: an annual publication which this table provides part of a digital alternative with improved interactivity. Previous publications of this release provide data for the academic years 2006/07 - 2011/12, and there are no current plans to update this table to include data previous to 2012/13.

Statistical quality

In earlier versions of this table, deprivation data for 2018/19 and 2019/20 was incorrectly based on the income domain of the Welsh Index of Multiple Deprivation (WIMD) and not the main index as described. This has now been revised so that they are based on the main index.
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.

The LLWR data underlying this table are intended to be final, for non-funding purposes.

General description

This table provides the number of learners enrolled on apprenticeships in Wales.

Learner counts are provided on a 'unique learner' basis which uses the unique learner identifier in the underlying data. This eliminates any element of multiple-counting where a learner is enrolled at two or more providers in a single academic year.

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 (*).


Data collection and calculation

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.

Data reference periods

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

Users, uses and context

The data in this table are used both within and outside the Welsh Government to monitor educational trends and as a baseline for further analysis of the underlying data. Some of the key users are:

Ministers and the Members Research Service in the National Assembly for Wales
Officials in the Welsh Government
Other government departments
Further Education Institutions, Work-Based Learning providers and local authorities
Estyn, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Education and Training in Wales
Students, researchers, and academics
Individual citizens, private companies, and the media

These statistics are used in a variety of ways. Some examples of these are:

General background and research
Inclusion in reports and briefings
Advice to Ministers
Informing and evaluating the education policy-making process in Wales

LLWR data are used to underpin funding and performance reports for learning providers, to calculate NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) figures and in student finance modelling.

Rounding applied

All figures in the table have been rounded to the closest multiple of 5. All non-zero values less than 5 have been suppressed and are denoted by an asterisk (*).
