Table 1 shows estimated funding values for Adult Skills Budget provision (excluding Apprenticeships) in the Engineering and Manufacturing Technologies sector subject area, by level, in the 2014-15 financial year.

Figures for estimated funding come from the Individualised Learner Record and provide an indication of the level of government funding. They should not be treated as actual spend, since spending is not reported by sector subject area.
