In the 2022/23 academic year (August to April, reported to date) there have been 4,530 transferred apprenticeship service commitments that have materialised into starts at non-levy paying organisations. In the 2021/22 academic year (August to July, reported to date) there were 4,510.

To note:

(1) Apprenticeship service data as of 9 June 2023.

(2) Starts as recorded on the Individualised Learner Record (ILR).

(3) Levy-paying status of the transfer recipient is the latest recorded status of the apprenticeship service account.

(4) Providers may not record learners immediately on the ILR, so a lag may occur between a commitment being recorded in the apprenticeship service and the corresponding commitment being recorded as a start on the ILR.

(5) Commitments can be recorded/amended on the apprenticeship service system after the transfer approval date, so all data are provisional.
