Table 1 shows the number of apprenticeship programme starts and achievements in Hastings and Rye constituency, East Sussex local education authority, and England. The academic year 2010/11 (August 2010 to July 2011) is based on final data; 2011/12 (August 2011 to July 2012) is based on provisional data.
Provisional data for the 2011/12 academic year provide an early view of performance and will change as further data returns are received from further education colleges and providers. It is therefore not possible to directly compare them with final-year data from previous years. Figures for 2011/12 will be finalised in January 2013.
We publish apprenticeship starts and achievements at regional, local education authority and parliamentary constituency levels of geography.
