Apprentices: Enfield

Volume 474: debated on Tuesday 1 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many apprenticeships were (a) available and (b) taken up in the London borough of Enfield in each of the last five years. (196793)

Figures on the number of places available are not collected centrally.

Figures for those starting Apprenticeships can be derived from the Learning and Skills Council’s (LSC) Individualised Learner Record (ILR) and are available at

http://www.apprenticeships.org.uk/partners/frameworks/apprenticeshipsdata

Following the Machinery of Government announcements, the LSC is working to update its systems so that data by local authority area are readily available. Residence-based data at a local authority level are something that will be built into reporting systems, however historic data based upon the contracting local LSG area are provided in response to this question.

The following table shows the starts on apprenticeships and in advanced apprenticeships in the London North LSC for each of the last 5 years for which data are available (based on home post code of the learner).
