Completion is not a measure used by the LSC. The following table shows success rates (the number of leavers who meet all of the requirements of their apprenticeship framework divided by the number of leavers who have either left training or successfully completed their programme) for 16 to 18-year-olds in Yorkshire and Humberside. These figures are not currently available at local authority level.

The ILR does not collect information about the field of employment learners go into on completion of their apprenticeships although because the vast majority of apprentices are employed during their training it is probable that most will stay in the same field of employment on completion of their training.
