The most recent statistics on apprenticeship starts by industry sector covers the academic years 2012/13 to 2016/17 and are published at the following link: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/apprenticeships-in-england-by-industry-characteristics.
The UK Standard Industrial Classification of economic activities does not include a specific category for the technology sector. However, the ‘Information and communication’ category includes several specific sub-sectors related to technology (e.g. telecommunications, computer programming and information service activities).
In 2016/17 there were 9,410 starts in the information/communication sector in the UK and 1,440 starts in the information/communication sector in the South East.
Data is not published at constituency level so the number of starts in the Woking constituency is not available.
