To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how many apprentices there have been in arts, media and publishing by (a) gender and (b) ethnic group in each of the last five years.
The department routinely publishes data on apprenticeship starts in the further education data library: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/fe-data-library-apprenticeships.
The attached tables contain the figures for apprenticeship starts for the sector subject area ‘Arts, media and publishing’ for each academic year from the published tables.
The profile of apprenticeship starts changed significantly prior to, and following, the introduction of our reforms; care should therefore be taken in comparing and interpreting this data.
