The amount spent on traineeships for those aged 19 and over in the 2013/14 academic year was not recorded separately to the Adult Skills Budget. Information on spend for the 2014/15 academic year is not yet available.

The estimated amount of funding provided for these traineeships in 2013/14 is £6.4m. This is based on the number of traineeships delivered by providers and is not necessarily what has been paid.
