Can you provide me with the latest apprenticeships starts data as the London Datastore currently only goes up to November 2013. Can you also tell me what analysis you have drawn from these figures?

The apprenticeships data on the London data store has now been updated and includes data up to January 2014.

Much of the post-recession growth in starts was driven by over-25s. Subsequently, the 2012/13 fall in starts was driven by the over 25s. For 19-24 year-olds starts in 2012/13 continued to rise.  It is difficult to conclusively establish impact for the apprenticeship numbers in London. The data will continue to be monitored.
