This information is not collected.

However, the 2014 Apprenticeships Evaluation: Learners survey found that nine in ten of all apprenticeship completers (88%) were in either full or part-time employment; only six per cent of completers were unemployed and a further two per cent were in education or training, and two per cent were self-employed.
