Holding answer received on 16 January 2015

Information on the number of Higher Apprenticeship starts in England by Level and Parliamentary Constituency is attached.

Although level 4 and 5 apprenticeships were available in all three years, level 6 and 7 apprenticeships were only enabled by legislation from April 2013. Official apprenticeship data provides complete information for government-funded apprenticeships and this shows that there were no starts on the four available level 6 apprenticeships during the 2013/14 academic year.
