Table 1 shows the number of apprenticeship programme starts in the North East, Yorkshire and the Humber, and the North West regions. Final data are shown for the 2009-10 and 2010-11 academic years and provisional data are shown for the 2011-12 academic year.

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. They should not be directly compared with final year data from previous years. Figures for 2011-12 will be finalised in January 2013.
