Training for Success and Programme-Led Apprenticeships Statistics from September 2007 to April 2013

Date published: 28 August 2013

This Statistical Bulletin is part of a quarterly series published by the Department for Employment and Learning (DEL) to provide key information on the Training for Success (TfS) and Programme-Led Apprenticeships(PLA) programmes in Northern Ireland. The statistics presented in this Bulletin cover a range of topics including starts, occupancy, leavers and outcomes for participants on TfS and PLA.


The training provides young people with relevant qualifications as well as the required personal and behavioural skills to progress into work.

Statistics in this bulletin covers key information on the Training for Success 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.
