We use success rates to show the proportion of learners who start an apprenticeship and go on to achieve it. Success rates are published as percentages rather than volumes. This information by self-declared learning difficulty is published in the Statistical First Release Equality and Diversity tables ( The tables cover the five years between 2008/09 and 2012/13, when the success rate for the cohort of apprentices with dyslexia was 68.4%. We will publish data for 2013/14 in the near future.
