Statistics in this bulletin covers key information on the ApprenticeshipsNI programme in Northern Ireland, including the number of starts and leavers, occupancy and qualifications achieved. This information will be published on a quarterly basis going forward.
Ongoing work to improve data quality and accuracy has uncovered potential issues with the recording of disability on the Client Management System (CMS).
At this time, it is not clear whether or to what extent these issues will affect previously published statistics on numbers of people with a disability who are participating in DEL training programmes.
Staff in Analytical Services are working to resolve these issues and will issue further information and corrections to previously published CMS data where appropriate. Until that time, figures already published on people with a disability on Training for Success, Programme-Led Apprenticeships and ApprenticeshipsNI are subject to revision.
