Apprenticeship achievement rates are published in our annual national achievement rates tables by local authority district. Tables for the 2016 to 2017 academic year are published here.

The table attached provides the cohort numbers and proportions achieving the advanced Level 3 apprenticeship for Ashfield constituency, Nottinghamshire, Nottingham local authority district and England for the 2016 to 2017 academic year and show that Ashfield outperform the local area and the country. Figures are based on learner home postcode. We do not hold data for the United Kingdom, but for England only.

The apprenticeship levy was introduced in April 2017. We do not hold the information on apprenticeship employers that pay/do not pay the levy, but do hold information on apprenticeship service (AS) accounts that hold levy funds, which can be used to fund an apprenticeship. Apprenticeship starts (including those that are levy supported) in the Ashfield constituency are shown in the attached table.
