Notes:

1 Early leavers are those whose actual completion date was earlier than anticipated at the time they started training. This group will include those starting employment and those who subsequently take up another youth training course or a full-time course elsewhere.

2 1992–93 figures are provisional.

3 DK/NA stands for not known or not answered. A very small proportion of returned leavers certificates are not fully completed. In this case a very few certificates did not have sufficient information to work out the length of stay in training.

4 Less than 0.5 per cent.
