In 2018/19, there were 59,970 apprenticeship starts in the Engineering and Manufacturing Technologies sector subject area, of which 7.9% were female.

In the first quarter of the 2019/20 academic year (covering August to October 2019), there have been 24,440 starts reported to date, of which 7.8% were female.

There is no single apprenticeship called ‘energy engineering’, however there are a number of engineering-related apprenticeships that may relate to the ‘energy’ sector, a number of which are shown in the attached table.
