Between April 2012 and May 2013 there have been 2,230 work experience and 550 sector based academy starts in Birmingham. We do not have a breakdown of the number of Wage Incentive payments, or Apprentice Grant to Employers made in Birmingham since the launch of the Youth Contract. A regional breakdown of the number of Wage Incentive payments will be included in the next set of Official Statistics.

There are no forward projections on how many Wage Incentives, Apprenticeship Grants to Employers or work experience placements will be created in Birmingham up to 2015.
